No, I haven't fallen off the wagon...

Well, It has been a long time since I've posted on the message boards or written a blog entry. Today I'm ready to tell you why:
I'm pregnant again - and this time I've made it successfully past the end of the first trimester!
In January I dedicated myself to Boot Camp. I made fantastic progress, but at the end of the month I was really starting to get tired out. I soon figured out that I was pregnant and got in touch with my doctor at the fertility clinic. I was given a prescription for daily progesterone supplements until I reached the 10 week mark. My hormone levels were checked at least once each week. I became quite a regular customer at the blood lab!
When it came time to stop the medication I was nervous as could be, but everything went perfectly. I've had three ultrasounds and baby is looking great! I'm over the moon about it and so is hubby - although I think it took him a while to believe that it is really happening!
I've still been checking in on my Spark friends a few times a week and I plan to continue to do so. During my pregnancy my doctor would like me to aim for a moderate weight gain of about 15 pounds, so I'm still using the nutrition tracker to make sure that I'm getting a good range of nutrients and not going overboard on the sodium. I'm also using the BabyFit site but Spark has better trackers and a much more active community so I plan to stick around here too.
Big hugs to all of you. I hope you're doing well and enjoying these lovely early spring days.
