Dog Park!!!

We had a great weekend. Spent Saturday picking out a Christmas tree, Christmas shopping, and playing frisbee at the off leash dog park! I had to add some pictures because these are just the happiest dogs ever...












And, here they are later that night...












Besides that, I have an ultrasound tomorrow morning and just spent the morning getting bloodwork done at the old RE's office to see if I can finally stop taking the estrogen and PIO (doesnt this make it sound like they've kept me on it against my will instead of the other way around?). I do think I am finally ready to stop the PIO. I've recently started getting hot flashes and think that maybe the placenta has finally started its own production of the necessary hormones (Oh, I so hope this is true!).

I also went to the endocrinologist finally. For those of you who don't know, if you are hypothyroid and on medicine, pregnancy greatly alters your medicine requirements and the hormones produced by your thyroid are so necessary to make sure your baby developes properly -especially neurologically. Anyway, he really calmed my fears. My primary care physician had me scared to death about future radioactive iodine tests, possible goiters, etc...none of that exists. I simply have Hashimoto's Thyroidosis, which just involves antibodies fighting against the thyroid itself, so I need meds. He made me feel 100% better....So all is good here.


I graduate to the OB this week!!! Cheers all around!!! Now, praying for a great sonogram tomorrow....

I love your boxers! How much fun are they having! And they are too cute snuggled up together.

Hope you have a wonderful U/S tomorrow.

What gorgeous pups! Makes me wish I had two boxers, instead of just the one.

I came across your blog googling "miscarriage" and "IVIG", and I just wanted to tell you that I'm so very sorry for all of your losses, especially your most recent one. I hope that the new year brings you health and happiness, and success at last. Best of luck.
