Good progesterone news!

Thanks for checking on me, TCIE! I'll post more later this week, but I thought I'd do a quick update now. Today, the weather is so hideous that we're holed up inside (it took Mr. X 2 1/2 hours to drive 15 miles home from work!) and I'm in a great mood! I've been feeling really overwhelmed between adoption training, childbirth classes (we're taking the Bradley method course), work deadlines, finding a new car, refinancing our house, remodeling the bathroom and kitchen, and general getting ready to be parents (trying to eat well and exercise, read up on parenting, shovel out the office-turned-babies' room, and figure out what stuff we have to buy!). The weather may be nasty today, but it gave me a reason to cancel everything and stay home to catch up on things.

So, I heard from PPVI this afternoon, and my 24-week progesterone level is in Zone 3! Woohoo! I get to stop the progesterone injections (at least until my 26-week progesterone test--depending on that level, I may have to start again). If it's good for the baby, I'm happy to have the injections right up to birth, but it's nice to see a good high level and know that I can skip a couple of needles!

Speaking of which, I have to get back to work, but I finally scanned in the latest ultrasound pictures, so I'll leave you with a picture of our little girl! She's on her side, facing the camera with her head on the right. This is a pretty good shot of her face, and she looks like she's smiling!

Beautiful girl!

It's nice that you can have a little needle free time!

And that dear friend is the face of God! :)

I am glad that you are keeping busy! ;) For so long things I sure seemed slow and barren. And now they are fast and fertile! ;)

It just goes to show that if you ask God for something you best prepare! :) I am going to tell TCIE that! :) I think she is on the right track! ;)

Thanks for the update! Wow, what a beautiful unborn child you have :) She's a looker! (And happy, too!)
Great news about the progesterone. I can't wait to see "our" little summer baby!! (Summer babies rule, and I'm not biased in the least.)

I am so happy to hear you're in zone 3. I have been stalking your blog since you found out you were pregnant (hope you don't mind) and it is so nice to hear things are going well. YEAH! I absolutely love the ultrasound picture by the way. Your baby girl is beautiful! What a blessing :)
Many prayers,
