10 Weeks - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
10 Weeks
As of today I am 10 weeks pregnant. This is important for two reasons. The first is that the embryo is now officially a fetus. The second is that the placenta should be fully formed by now, meaning that I can stop the progesterone in oil shots. I don't mind the shots so much, but it is a hassle needing to take a ten minute break from whatever every night, and by now there is no unbruised real estate on either my thighs or my bottom. Because I am paranoid I will be using suppositories left over from the days of IUI for the next week to make the drop-off in artificial progesterone less sudden. I am not interested in taking any risks with this.

In other news I am showing, kind of. I think that my belly looks pregnant instead of just fat, but I can only really see it when I'm undressed. When I'm wearing clothes the expansion on the northern frontier causes the fabric to drape in such a way that the subequatorial territory isn't very obvious.

I took my last PIO shot on Thanksgiving Day, and boy was I thankful! I was reacting to the oil (even after having switched to ethyl oleate). I wasn't very bruised, but I was covered in red itchy welts.

Congratulations and 10 times over Congratulations.

Now it is time to let the bruising heal and the other symptoms to take over.
