A "normal" pregnant lady

Finally! I stopped the PIO on Friday and ripped that last patch off on Saturday and got blood work drawn this morning...and...my P4 was at 19.8 and my E2 was at 792 and I am officially released from CCRM and RE's and weekly bloodtests and shots and patches! I get nervous b/c my numbers went down from friday (p4 was 26.7 and e2 was 1018) but all they want to see is p4 at a good level (on the PIO, they like it over 20 but on my own steam, I think over 10 is safe) and E2 over 300....so I am free! Now to start up a tradition that I've been asked to start again...one that I left off after my miscarriage in the fall...


11 weeks - my baby is the size of...
A sugar packet! and she weighs approximately as much as 2 packets together! I know that seems tiny but you've seen her...she is the cutest thing already:-)
Besides all of that...I am doing great. Feeling much better. I still get a little sick at night but it isn't the all day overwhelming nausea with repeat dry heaving and vomiting all night. Yay! My body is undergoing some changes...um, can you say belly pooch? I'm loving every minute of it. I can't wait until it is HUGE and I can feel active kicks and movements. I have about 2 more weeks to go to make it through the first trimester, but we are getting into "safe" territory and I am starting to have fun dreaming and imagining...though I rely on that doppler almost daily to reassure me that she is growing and her little heart is getting stronger. What an amazing invention:-)

You're doing so well and you SO DESERVE to be able to enjoy, to dream and visualize, not just "hope". You will hold that baby girl so soon!

Love it! I also wonder if I'll ever feel like just a "normal" pregnant woman (though I'm quite a ways behind you). And I love the sugar packet comparison! So Sweet :) Ha!

I just read this post and noticed that you mention a doppler. Oh, please, do share!!! I am looking for one to ease my mind in the future (after our loss at 15 weeks) and need a recommendation.
Glad to see that all is progressing well with you and the baby. Peace to you and your pregnancy!!
