Talking woOt! WoOt! I'm 12 weeks today!

I've been waiting for this milestone since the blood test confirmed pregnancy at 6 weeks (been knowing I was pregnant since 4)! Because my progesterone levels were considered on the low side and due to a previous miscarriage my MW wanted to supplement. After much consideration I decided not to supplement but instead do it via eating stuff like tumeric powder in my meals and a few other things. Subsequent blood work showed increase in progesterone and whether my new supplementation diet worked or not my progesterone levels kept rising! While they were still not at the level my MW would've like them to be they were still going up at a level she was comfortable with so she dropped the topic.

The goal for her was just for me to get to 12 weeks because supposedly that's when the placenta kicks in with the progesterone production. SO ! She said we would've stopped medical supplementation at this point because too much progesterone can be harmful.

So I'm doing a happy dance, hopefully everything continuous uneventfully for all of us.
