Thank goodness!

I cannot believe that I forgot to mention this!  Over the holidays the placenta finally formed, which means I do not have to take progesterone shots anymore.  Yay!!!!  Since they had to be intra- muscular, there was no way I could do them to myself.  Josh, and a few other poor souls, had to be my nurses. And I had to endure ore, numb butt for the past two months.  I am just really glad they are over with.  So I thought I would share.  Yay for placentas!!

I'm so glad to hear that. I didn't realize that you only had to get them til the placenta formed. I had assumed it was for the duration of the pregnancy! Now I can sleep without thinking you are at home getting stabbed! Yay!

Yeah, Jenni! So awesome. I still can't believe you are pregnant!

So glad to hear that Jen! I too thought you had to take them throughout the pregnancy, so congratulations on your newly formed placenta!

Hooray! I did similar shots when we were doing fertility treatments and I cannot imagine having to do them for very long. You brave Mommy! Glad that is over with! Yippie for the placenta! Watch out, though, as placentas (and breastmilk) are made from brain cells, hence the mind fog you mentioned feeling. ;)
