Pills... The verdict

Well, I called my Ob's office again today to inquire about my new drug protocol. I am a little uncomfortable giving up my pills as they have been my security blanket (even if at first i didn't want to take them)

I have 4 days left of m.etfo.rmi.n and (long sigh) I still do not mind giving up the progesterone. I am slightly more uncomfortable giving up the Met.

As for the, I am going to be weaned off this. I am taking 1 tablet for the next 5 days (til 12/25). Then I am taking 1/2 tablet for 5 days (til 12/30). Then 1/2 tablet every other day for 5 days(til 01/04).

After this I will just be doing lovenox (until 30 weeks) and a baby aspirin. (unless the MFM dr says differently). I will be visiting a MFM Dr. in January. My next appointment with my OB is Jan 11th. and after that appointment, they will make an appointment to see the MFM(Perinatologist).

Our family is having our Christmas Saturday night in St., G.A. I have alot of laundry, packing, shopping and wrapping to do before we leave tomorrow. AND i need to come into work for a few hours ( hopefully 8 - so i don't have to use leave). Everyone have a very blessed and safe merry christmas.

My friend, Trying2007, got 2 lines today (after a long and tiring journey of 4 IVF's). She has a beta tomorrow. Go and send her off with lots of positive vibes!

I'm glad you called and double checked about that last one...looks like you were right to question their judgment (again/as usual)!

I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip!!!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!

So you're seeing the Peri? I had a preconceptual visit with mine due to my UU - unicornuate uterus. I found it really helpful because they are so complete in taking your history, etc. Have a great holiday!

I know what you mean about not wanting to stop the meds. My OB told me that we would continue the Met throughout most of the pregnancy but I know some doctors like to stop it sooner. If I don't talk to you before then, Merry Christmas and thank you for being such a source of comfort for me!

i am supposed to be stopping my injections in two weeks and i'm terrified. i hate the PIO and delestrogen, the shots hurt so bad, but i'm so scared to beleive in this body that was too broken to get pregnant on its own.
