Okay so I am 14 weeks 2 days today and just started my PIO shots back up. I will be heading to the lab sometime this week to get my progesterone levels redrawn. I feel more reassured (basically from everyone's comments) that everything should be okay even though I've been off PIO for about 2 1/2 weeks! (Yikes!)
My nausea is all gone...thank you second trimester! And thank you God for letting me get this far in my pregnancy. Every day is just amazing to me that I am here, right in this spot in my life, pregnant....again. What a blessing, and I literally say a big "thank you" to our Lord every day for this privilege.
Of course it's hard/impossible to know if things are going okay in there at this point. And I've been wavering on whether to buy a fetal heart doppler (found used ones for as cheap as $50 on craigslist, but I'm still too frugal to pay that!)...but I kept thinking any time now I could possibly start to feel some movement since this is not my first baby. And the last two days I feel almost totally sure that I have felt the baby move! No kicks.. it feels more like a rolling or turning inside. It seems so early, but I remember going to the OBGYN for an appointment while I was pregnant with Mary Grace at 12 weeks and the nurse asked if I had felt any movement yet, and I said, "seriously?" and she said it was possible! So I guess it can really start this early!
Feeling some movement is enough to give me a bit of peace of mind. My next OBGYN appointment is on the 15th and it really is just a week and a half away now. October is so busy for us...there is something going on every weekend, and so far we've been really busy during the weekdays as well, so I'm hoping the time will fly by to the 15th!
Oh and my crazy not-being-to-empty-my-bladder problem due to my stubborn uterus has finally resolved itself...haven't had any trouble in over a week!! Which is a huge praise! I guess it makes sense that my uterus has finally found it's correct position as my belly is starting to poke out a little bit more....so yay! :) I'll take another belly shot hopefully this Sunday at 15 weeks.
This has turned into a longer update than I intended! :) But I did take the plunge and check out a "new baby on the way" book from the library for Isabel...you know...trying to work her into the reality that we hope plays out come April. We got the Berenstain Bears and the New Baby...and to my surprise it is her favorite library book of the week. She has asked to read it every day during lunch since we've had it!
