I am on:
-200mg PIO shots 2 times a week
-one super fun suppository pill at night
-and now since my last draw was lower than they'd like to see (33.2 @ 16 weeks) I'm now on an additional 2 more oral pills throughout the day.
Seeing as I started at out only 6, I'm definitely glad that I'm going up and not down. But man oh man, today, day 2 of taking it all, it has really caused me to be extra tired!
The nurse at PPVI said that they weren't nervous about anything bad happening, just that they want it higher (apparently its low zone 2) and I'm just grateful they are there watching and helping me throughout this process.
It absolutely amazes me that this little girl of ours has thrived and done so well given my less than stellar progesterone reads.
Speaking of little girl...we are still, slowly taking it all in that we are having a daughter.
We seriously had probably over 90% of family and friends guessing boy, especially seeing as my dh's family, going back many generations, has only ever had a boy first and a lot if times, only boys. Both his brothers have 3 boys each, no girls. Everyone thought it was a given.
But little girl proved them wrong and DH and I are over the moon.
The day we found out she was a she is def up there with our most incredible days ever.
I cannot believe that I am a mother to a daughter.
Still soaking it all in and counting my blessings.
And something else, while we were experiencing such joy, my heart was breaking at the same time for sweet JBTC. It truly made us more aware of just how fragile and precious life is. So in the middle of our celebrating, we were mourning the loss of her sweet one and praying that the Lord will give peace and comfort to her and her family. If you haven't already done so, please take a moment and offer up a prayer (or 10) for this beautiful blogger!
Life is precious.
Don't forget to count those blessings.
