1 Down, 20 To Go

Today I got my first progesterone shot.  The shots are supposed to help prevent pre-term labor and since I'm at a high risk for pre-term labor I will be getting one every week.  The shot wasn't as bad as I was worried it might be so I'm less worried about the 20 or so I have left :)

We also scheduled our anatomy ultrasound for May 24, so in one month we will know for sure if this is Emily or a little boy whose name we have yet to pick. 

I would have to say that today's appointment has been the best one we've had yet and the most reassuring for me.  You see, at my last two appointments my doctor tried to listen to the heartbeat with the dopplar and both times we searched and searched to only hear 2 or 3 beats.  This time we heard the heartbeat almost as soon as she put the dopplar on my tummy.

I also felt the baby move for the first time on Sunday night which has me really excited.  I am really looking forward to feeling the baby move on a more regular schedule because there is nothing more reassuring than feeling movement!


  1. I am so glad to hear all that is going on! I can't wait to find out if it is an Emily or boy! I have some really cute things to make for an Emily, I'll have to keep searching for things to make a boy! Anyway keep me posted!

  2. Good stuff! I'm so glad to hear you've gotten to feel baby moving. That's exciting! Also thrilled to hear about the good strong heartbeat. Just wanted to let you know that I think about and pray for you almost every day!
