Almost there…

The second trimester, that is.

Phew…looking forward to being done with this nerve-wracking first trimester. I hate to wish time away, especially since I’ve been waiting to experience this for so long, but the first trimester has been tough. Not just physically but emotionally as well. I have been so terrified through these past ten weeks, that I am emotionally drained. I’m hoping this will ease up a bit as I make my way into the next phase of this pregnancy.

My weaning is going well. I’m down to estrace twice daily and suppositories twice daily. No more PIO injections and no more patches! Today’s E2 level was 2643 and P4 was 33.6. What I am most excited with in weaning off the meds is that very soon there will be no more weekly blood draws! You have NO idea how frustrating these have been. Week after week of screw ups and miscommunication. It’s been beyond annoying.

I had my NT ultrasound yesterday. It was great to see the little one moving around like crazy. The scan did end up causing us a bit of worry, however – only because the tech wasn’t as chatty as past techs and so it made us worry that something was up. When I met with my OB today, however, she said that according to the report she received everything looked normal. She did say that the radiologist couldn’t get a clear picture or measurements of everything because of the postion of the little one, but she said everything they did record was normal. So she said we could either just leave it or redo the scan next week if that would make me feel better. After discussing it with her, I think I’ll repeat it – just for peace of mind.

So that’s that for now…12 weeks tomorrow – very grateful.
