Milestone Passed

11 weeks is when my last baby stopped growing.  Passing that point in this pregnancy, and with my next ultrasound scheduled for 11 weeks and 4 days, I was very anxious for a few days.

I'm happy to report that Pistachio is still going strong.  S/he was measuring 4 days ahead, and had a beautiful heart rate of 159 beats per minute.

I'm still taking everything one day at a time, but passing this point is a big deal.  I have 3 more days on progesterone and then I'm done.  I'm trying not to drive myself crazy wondering if being off of it will cause any problems.  There was never anything to suggest that my progesterone was low, but it's reassuring being on it, all the same.

I've decided to go ahead and start weekly bump pictures, and maybe even weekly posts like I did with Betty.  I want this baby to have the same things to look back at as Betty does.  Jinxes be damned.


  1. I'm so glad to read this! Woo!

  2. Yay! It's so nice to see a post from you, and such a great one at that! I'm looking forward to following along with this pregnancy and cheering you along.
