Sorry I’m posting this a bit late, we’ve been on the road so I didn’t get a chance to update you all on our scan on Tuesday. MB is doing great and is getting so big! Heart rate was up to 170 bpm which Dr. said is fantastic. You could also see the arms, legs, umbilical cord, and the amniotic sac surrounding the baby. It is really amazing to me what a difference a week can make.
My body is however fighting the power with this whole progesterone thing. Had another blood draw and even with taking Crinone 2 times a day in addition to Prometirum twice a day, my progesterone level was only 20.67. Yes this is in the normal first trimester range, and there is also going to be a higher dosage near my uterus that does not register on a blood test but they still would like to see my blood work at least at 30. So now I get to do Crinone 3 times a day! Lucky me! But of course I only packed enough for twice a day so it is off to the pharmacy I go. I’ve been really lucky because my RE office has a ton of Crinone samples and they have basically supplied it all for me for free. So I shouldn’t be mad that I have to pay for a few doses. Well 12 really. But yeah.
I’m mostly just frustrated that my body is being so damn stubborn. I’m really grateful that I have a doctor that is watching this so closely and is doing whatever needs to be done to keep MB growing, it’s just aggravating that my body is not helping at all.
Stupid pregnant girl problems…I know.
Sorry about the whinny woe-is-me post. Just had to vent for a bit. In the mean time I am out-of-town but I’ll still try to post bumpdates and what not since really our only plans for this vacation is to sit around and be lazy.
I’ve gotta thank Kelly again for sending my some preggy pops. They seriously helped me on our car ride SO much. Thanks love!
