About Me

Caledonia, Northern Illinois, United States
I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.

Face to Face

Well we got to meet with the RE yesterday...can't say that things are gonna move along any faster now though. He didn't make things any more clear for us so we still feel a bit helpless when dealing with the clinic and the pace in which things are moving. Of course as I've mentioned before our big hitch right now is IM's most recent test results so we are awaiting more news. We did get some great news though that her FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels looked good this time around, these are very important in regards to the ER (egg retreival) so we were excited to hear that.

IM and I both had our injections training, at least that was a proactive step in making this all happen. My meds should be rather simple, just a few oral ones (estrogen, antibiotics) and Lupron will be the only injectable. No dreaded PIO for me...we will be doing suppositories. My bum is gonna be thankful for that. IM however has several injectables, I believe four, so the heating pad will become her friend for sure.

The highlight of the visit to Chicago of course was that "A" and I were able to enjoy a very nice lunch together. It was so nice to sit down and talk face to face has been so long. Keeping fingers crossed that we will be seeing one another more and more frequently over the coming month or so.
