10 weeks 1 day and still pregnant!

In fact, we saw little hands and feet moving! It was amazing. There are lots of thoughts going through my head, but I want to keep this short so here is some quick bullet items. Later I will post details of this visit so those interested can compare the OB experience with the midwife experience.
  • Yes, I thought about the baby being the product of DE while watching him move. Yet the overwhelming feeling was that she was our baby! Moving!!
  • I always imagined that Ernest never moved so it was very comforting to see movement
  • I know lots can still go wrong, but we seem to fear most what we have already personally experienced.
  • I feel very, very fortunate to be this far along with a huge support system both in the blogosphere and in real life.
  • Did I mention we saw the baby move? Just like this (imagine me laying on my back kicking my hands and feet)!
  • We are done with progesterone shots and estrace! Maybe I will start to feel like a normal pregnant lady. Yeah, right.
Thanks again to all your wonderful support. I hope that I didn't make anyone feel sad for herself tonight. I know that may be impossible, but please know I am thinking about you.

Ok, I have a vivid imagination...So...with that visual in mind, I want you to do this when you are say...7 months pregnant...and see if you can still do it then :)

Oh, better make sure the hubby is home so he can help you roll back over.

WOO HOO 10 weeks, no more progesterone! You go girl!!!
