Hormone updates...

I didn't post these the other day as I didn't want to take away my big news, but we had other good news as well on Friday. My E2 came back pretty high at 2026. Big improvement from the last measurement (199). They let me decrease down 1 Vivelle patch. Therefore, on Saturday I only had to put on 3 patches-yippee! Also, my P4 came back pretty high as well at 55.7, so I was able to choose either to decrease PIO to every other day or take 1 Prometrium out of the mix. Umm...my butt could really use a break so that was an easy choice! I skipped my first dose on Saturday night. It felt so good! Both levels getting re-checked tomorrow morning, so hoping all has gone well with my decreases.

To answer a couple of your questions, up until just a few days ago, I really haven't had many symptoms other than extreme fatigue. Lately, I've had some lovely heartburn and indigestion issues to deal with along with an increased appetite. I can eat and then be hungry again in an hour. Hope that one is really short lived, otherwise I'm gonna gain a lot of weight.

A quick due date explanation: my singleton gestational due date is Aug. 16, 2009. My twin due date by average gestation is July 26, 2009. Hope that clears up any confusion.

Good news! DH will have to start doing PIO shots in a couple of days, and the trigger shot (the first shot he'll ever administer) in, uh, 10 minutes. He asked how long he'll have to keep doing the injections. I told him that if it works, probably a couple of months. He was shocked.

Good luck with the checks tomorrow!

yay, glad the E2 is skyrocketing. That seems like such a huge number!

The hungry thing...mine didn't go away until 2nd trimester. I have a lot of poundage to thank for that. Not that you'll be the same or anything. Just, the hungry thing seems to be common.

I don't think you have a choice on the weight gain with twins, but who cares?! Great news, congratulations!
