Today marks the first day of my 10th week of pregnancy. I am 1/4 of the way finished gestation. I just finished taking my morning course of medication. A morning routine I have had for 8 weeks, and a routine that will be ending after tomorrow.
See, as part of being an infertility momma, there are certain medications that I am still on. The Estradiol and Prometrium I will be stopping Tuesday is very important. It provides me with hormones that my body doesn't produce enough of. These hormones prevent me from rejecting the baby and having a miscarriage. But at some point in the 9th week the placenta is supposed to take over that role and begin pumping out these needed hormones. Which is why I am due to take my last pills now.
This is not an easy thing to go thru. I am kinda attached to the idea that I will really be a mom this time around. I am terrified that something will go wrong. Yes, the placenta is supposed to be doing it's job. . .but what if it's not? My nurse from SGF has assured me that everything will be fine and that they stop everyone at this point. But only time will tell. I am nervous as hell.
