Land of Hope and Glory

When you go to a graduation ceremony, you here the same march played. You can hum it right now, if you want. It's from a piece called Pomp and Circumstance and that particular march is called "Land of Hope and Glory". I thought about the title as I left the RE's office today, a happy "graduate".

The ultrasound was wonderful. As the technician stuck the wand in, I was laying down and couldn't see the screen. M burst out laughing. The baby was waving his/her arms around. I don't know if M expected that, but his laughter was a good sound to hear.

Everything measured well. The size is right on target, heart rate was good and the placenta is forming where it's supposed to be forming. The best part is, I get to stop taking the progesterone in one week!

While Dr. Fast examined me, she said that I needed to have my prolactin tested when I stopped breastfeeding because it may be the reason my progesterone was thrown off. Since they weren't able to complete the initial blood work, there is no way of knowing, until the next time, what was going on. I'm ok with that for now, I guess.

Anyway, I feel so relieved. I am going to call my parents tonight and let them know. When I spoke to my mom on Sunday she gave me a pep talk about how she just knew I was going to get pregnant soon. I almost told her then, but I just wanted to make sure everything was ok first. I don't think she'll be too mad when she finds out.

Go and give Oscar a big "Yay!!" Also, keep Sticky Bun in your thoughts as they deal with some very sad family news.

CONGRATS!! I'm glad to have graduated too! It makes you feel a little more normal to be seeing the OB. Plus, I find it easier to get in contact with the OB's office than the RE's office and I have already had to call 3 times with questions or issues.
