Prematurity Awareness Month Fact #26:
In 2003, two studies found that treatment with the hormone progesterone reduced the incidence of premature birth in women who had already had a preterm birth.

During the first twelve weeks of my pregnancy with Morgan Kate I took progesterone suppositories. And my OB has talked with me some about using progesterone in any future pregnancies. I know that progesterone can be given orally, as a suppository or even through an injection.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I have so, so much to be thankful for. I am thankful for God and how He has blessed my life immensely. I am so thankful for my husband and the marriage we have. I am so, so thankful for my beautiful baby girl and the fact that this year, we get to spend Thanksgiving at home. How nice! I am also very thankful for all of my fabulous family, my fantastic friends, MK's doctors and nurses and therapists and for each one of you that visits our blog. Thank you!

I remember putting that outfit on her that night. This just brought tears to my eyes. I remember being so happy that we could actually put clothes on her then. Happy Thanksgiving and congrats on a wonderful child!
