I had a second ultrasound today to check in on the small bleed and to see if Bat #2 was coming along at all.
Ultrasound confirmed (to the doctors at least) that Bat #2 will be absorbed by my body. Bat #1 is nice and strong with a heartbeat of 164!
We are ecstatic! We would have loved twins, but in the end, having one is such a blessing. This will be one loved little kid!
I am measuring on time - tomorrow I hit 8 weeks! Seems like we have come so far, yet we still have so far to go!
I am still banned from working out. Walking at a easy pace is my M.O for a while, but that's fine with me. Anything to get through this trimester into the second with the most success. I will get into shape later.
The doctors are starting to slowly wean me off the progesterone and estrogen! YAY! I am now down to 1cc a day of PIO (shot), moving from 3 suppositories to 2 of progesterone and backing off of 4 patches every other day to 3 patches. I have to give more blood on Friday to check out my levels to see if the weaning isn't affecting things too much. Each week they will back off a bit more, check my blood and hopefully my body kicks in to fill in the gaps.
I am battling some nausea, but mostly at night, along with a little indigestion and heartburn. BRING IT ON! I am not really fatigued at all, but I do get 10+ a night, so again, no complaints.
There is still a small bleed around Bat #1, where the sac is separated from the uterine wall. It is very slight so the doctors are not necessarily concerned. They say is can be very common.
I have my first visit to my perinatologist tomorrow, so more paperwork to be filled out. YAY!
Again, no complaints here. 34, 2012 - these are my years.
