Pregnancy Post (the saga continues)
Well, it turns out my progesterone levels were a bit low (still in the "normal" range, but at the very low end), so I had to go in today for an injection (two actually- one in each hip). I was also prescribed some very strange-looking progesterone capsules (they are small pink balls) that I am to take twice a day. I am also supposed to go back for another injection in three days (I'm waiting to hear from the doctor about whether that will actually be Sunday or if I will just go into the office on Monday). It's looking more likely that I will be skipping the conference next week, since we were supposed to leave on Sunday- which is fine with me at this point. I'll feel better to talk to the doctor about more of the details, but I guess we are doing everything we can to make things hospitable for that tiny baby. Wow- I never knew pregnancy could be so stressful- I was really lucky with D and had problems. I'll keep you posted- thanks for all of the good wishes.
