So far my rainbow of hope hasn't been very easy, but is any pregnancy? I knew from the beginning that my doctor would be monitoring me closely with extra doctor visits and extra vaginal ultrasounds, which isn't so bad: I get to see Landon more. I work third shift, so these extra appointments cut into my beauty rest. After my last appointment I get one less weekly appointment.
My cervix is stable at 18mm, but since my cervix did get smaller the High Risk Specialty doctors decided I should discontinue my progesterone shots. I no longer have to go in every Tuesday for an injection. However, they have me on progesterone capsules that need to be inserted every night at bedtime, in my case every day.
The progesterone capsules are awkward and when I picked them up at the pharmacy the guy asked if I had any questions about the prescription, as if I could ask in front of the whole entire store! And it is pretty self explanatory...
I keep reminding myself that Landon is worth all of the annoyance and discomfort. Landon will be a huge blessing and a sign of hope for others. But I still wish that it would be a little easier. The storm of losing Allison is over but it's still sprinkling.
I wish you a very good luck. How far along are you? I am going to start my progesterone shots next week. As you said, everything that we are or will do is totally worth it. My best wishes are with you.
Hugs and love, Tamara. Rainbow pregnancies are fraught with worry ... i was a basket case. I hope that you and the baby sail smoothly to the finish line.
And I seriously LOL'd on the pharmacist comment.
I will be 29 weeks on Sunday
I'm glad that you are getting to see Landon more and you're so right about it all being worth it:) I hope you're resting those feet whenever you can. Congrats on 29 weeks tomorrow!!!
Congratulations on 29 weeks! That is awesome. I remember the capsules of progesterone...not fun. Hang in there, you are doing such an amazing job.
I am so happy that things are going in the right direction for you and Landon. I understand the worry though; I asked if Abbey was "ok" even though I could hear her crying when she was born. Wishing you an uneventful as possible 10 more weeks :)
Love and Hugs
sending hugs and lots of positive thoughts. and I think for us loss moms it will always sprinkle even though the storm has passed. Nicki
I'm glad to hear that Landon is doing well. I remember my pregnancy after my girls were born. It was stressful until our sweet boy was here safely. Hang in there, Momma!
Sending you many hugs Tamara. Hoping you're able to get some rest through all of this, I know it's not easy, but it's so worth it.
Getting closer! Hugs!
