The Graduate

Guess who has two thumbs, is officially graduated from her infertility clinic, AND weaned from her meds?


No more 5:30 am wake-up calls for progesterone shots. No more sticky estrogen patches that no amount of scrubbing completely remove. More than anything I'm thrilled that my body seems to be doing what it is supposed to: producing the hormones needed to sustain a pregnancy and grow this sweet baby.

We are just a few short days from hitting the 12 week milestone and 6 days from our first appointment with our OB and another ultrasound to see our little one (now the size of a fig!). To say we are excited would be an understatement. Stay cozy Embry!


  1. Congratulations! I hope everything goes well at your OB appointment and you get to see your little fig!

  2. Woo to graduating and NO MEDS! Agreed, those patches are made from some kind of adhesive that could keep stuff together IN SPACE. It took me weeks to get the goo off my tummy. And now... NO GOO! No PIO! Nada, zip, but your body doing what it's supposed to for little Embry Fig! It must be so weird to have to wait so long for your next glimpse at the little nugget, but how exciting to see him/her at the OB/GYN. You're almost out of your first trimester! I am so thrilled for you.
