I am officially off the loveno/x today. One down a serious number of others to go. My progesterone is 17 which Dr J is not happy with - she wants it at 25. So, for now I am still on the pills and injections. Oh well. My DH gave me my PIO shot the other night and was really shocked at the bruises. Then I rolled over to do the Loveno.x and he nearly fainted! My belly is worse than my back. At least I got some sympathy ;-) Ironic that DH is more concerned about the bruises but has no idea what the morning sickness or side effects are like.
Oh and the news of the day.... I walked 5 blocks in 15 mins today. Whooo hooooooooooo. I was psyched. I have hiked serious trails, peaks and snow capped and I can honestly say, that 15 minute walk was way more amazing. I kept going and passed that road, that marker, this place, that place. Oh it was so great. I kept thinking "holy shyte and onions keep going Eb". Tomorrow I am going to try to walk to work - 12 blocks.
My back doctor gave me a prognosis of 70% full recovery rate. That is not too shabby! I am being signed up for prenatal yoga, prenatal swimming, prenatal stretching and massage. Seriously folks, I have a full time job but I am gonna be one of the obnoxiously over busy pregnant women that goes to something everyday ....EVERYDAY... in order to strengthen my back. For real, I am kinda excited about the activity. I got my gym bag out, looked online for maternity swimming costumes and workout gear. It feels normal to me, to be thinking about exercising so this has given me something to look forward to.
