Another Milestone

Last night I gave my 21st and very last Hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection!  It feels so great to be passing this milestone and leaving this weekly routine behind.  Now all the muscle knots and bruises can slowly disappear, leaving little evidence that I ever had to give myself these shots.

But of course I will never forget.  Studies have shown that this medication helps reduce the risk of preterm delivery in high risk pregnancies.  Thankfully we have been able to take advantage of new research, twice.
