Even better, I finally got to talk to a doctor who has some serious knowledge about my auto-immune treatment. He was able to cite research and has done the most to convince me that after the first trimester, now that the pregnancy is well established, I no longer have to inject myself with Lovenox. I do not have an identified thrombophilia problem (blood clotting issue). And although no one has yet to disagree that my eczema from the last pregnancy was a sign of an auto-immune problem, Lovenox is not going to affect that--the prednisone did. He did say I could continue on with the Lovenox injections for the rest of the pregnancy if I wanted, but he did not think it was necessary.
In any case, I am seriously considering stopping the Lovenox.
And tonight is our last progesterone in oil shot and my last dose of estrogen tablets. I am so psyched!!! My husband will no longer be a literal pain in the butt!!
I am also pretty sure that I've already felt both babies move. I am twelve weeks along, folks. Women who have already had children seem to quickly forget how incredibly early that is to feel something. (indeed, I just felt a little butterfly squiggle when I wrote that) I didn't feel Conor until February of our pregnancy, at about 17 or 18 weeks. I'm a full 6 weeks earlier with these babies. And my belly is HUGE. And it's just going to get bigger!
It just feels crazy. Twins are crazy. And we're crazy about them already.
