I forgot to tell my blogtastic friends--
I'm off the meds!!!!
Okay, that sounds like I'm off some sort of psych meds, which I was not on, for the record. I'm talking Progesterone, Prometrium and Estrogen.
Look, injections and "insertions" aren't the end of the world. They're just annoying. If I had to do them the entire pregnancy, I would.
But I'm so very happy I don't! My ars is thanking me already.
Also, I had my first OB visit today!! It was great!! Though I have been listening to the heartbeat at home, they still listen in the doc's office at every visit--and there "it" was, 172 beats per minute, sounding as beautiful as ever!
I think I've told you aobut my doc, but I'll say it again--he's awesome. I haven't seen him since my 6-week post partum visit after I had London in 2009 (my subsequent "girl stuff that needs to get done" appointments happened with 2 different RE's since then). I wasn't sure if he'd remember me or not. Well, when he walked into the exam room literally jamming out to Styx on his cell phone I knew I was golden.
(as you likely know, I'm a huge Styx fan)
Overall, it was a great appointment, though I've been warned that I'm at a higher risk for gestational diabetes because A)I've had it once before (with Emerson, the middle child) and B)apparently all risks are a little higher when you're carrying a child that's not really yours. So, he told me to lay off the bagels and pasta.
But hey, I'll do what I need to do. Besides my own family, this child I'm carrying is one of the most important things to me. I will do whatever needs to be done to ensure that both "it" and I are happy and healthy for the duration. If that means cutting out some things, that's what I'll do.
