I got my new calendar from my nurse. You know, the kind of calendar that picks up after beta #2 and continues until you stop meds toward the end of the 1st trimester! 🙂 Here’s the list of meds that I’m continuing daily:
- Dexamethasone, .75mg
- Progesterone in Oil, 50mg
- E2v/Progesterone suppository, 50mg
- Folgard, 2.2,g
- Prenatal (CitraNatal)
- Baby aspirin
I will continue all of the above through January 15th (11w1d). On January 16th, I’ll stop the PIO and suppositories and I will start to ween off Dexamethasone (every other day for one week). I’ll continue the prenatal, Folgard and baby aspirin through to delivery. Yes, I received actual paper work that references a “delivery” in the future. Holy crap! This is really happening!
How am I supposed to make it to next Friday? How do you stay distracted?
I am actually feeling zen at the moment but I’m expecting anxiety to set in sometime soon — or at least before next Friday. I am still feeling very bloated although it’s less uncomfortable than it was. Same bloat though that gets worse as the day goes on. I’m thirsty and I have to eat snacks more often. Other than that, I honestly feel totally normal. I know it’s early to feel anything else, but the bloat is definitely reassuring. I’ve decided to continue acupuncture for a while to support this pregnancy and my sanity. (I think I’ll buy the Circle + Bloom pregnancy mediation series to support my sanity as well. I really enjoyed the IVF one.) Although like I said, I’m feeling zen. Something’s different this time around. I haven’t had much anxiety this entire cycle and I must admit, it feels good for a change. I’m just gonna stick with my positive attitude and assume that everything is moving along like it should. There’s nothing to worry about. I am pregnant and I am going to enjoy it goshdarnit!
[P.S. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments over the last few days! Xoxo!]
