Levels latest

My progesterone was in the 70s yesterday! This is great! Next week they plan to start weening me off the progesterone until I a taking zip. When you are at 12 weeks your placenta should produce the amounts you need.
Today marks 8 weeks! I am very excited to get this far. I still worry about every little pain or weird feeling I have. I know though that I have to just give all that up to God.
I went today to buy some maternity clothes. Yes, I already had to buy new clothes. I weigh once a week, and (no, I am not lying) I have not gained any weight. (That said, I must say that I gained 5 pounds before the embryos were transferred.) However, all the extra fat I had (which was a lot) migrated to my already large mid section. It's like everything softened and settled right around my middle, and it's a lot like I am bloated every day. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I am thankful and loving every minute of it. Plus, my wonderful friend Raynie is bringing down some of her cute stuff to borrow. What a blessing that is!
I hope all is going well with everyone.
James and I (well James is and I am telling) are cleaning out closets upstairs. I am trying to get rid of the clutter and organize. I need to have a garage sale, but it's going to Good Will.
I am still not going to the football games. It brought me both joy and pain to know that I would not be going to the A&M game next weekend. It is bitter sweet but definately more sweet that I can not go.
That is all my ramblings for now.
