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.

Moving Right Along (Again)

Well AF made her appearance on Monday so I called the clinic to relay all my cycle dates. They wanted me to come in for a baseline u/s and bloodwork so I made the trek into Chicago today for a quick appointment. All went well and later this afternoon I got a call from our IVF coordinator, my tests came back "ok", but I did have elevated E2 (Estrodial) and a 15mm follicle on my left ovary. Honestly I don't know what all that means but from what I understand I'm still ovulating on the BCP. ?!?!?! DH is "snipped" so I'm not worried about that but I'm a little baffled why that would be since I've been religious about taking my pills but didn't ask any questions. So, the RE changed my bcp regimen and wanted me to start a new pack right away today so I ran out to the pharmacy pronto to refill my RX to get going on that.

After Dr. reviews everything with IM and gets all her cycle info we'll be rolling and hopefully getting that coveted cycling calendar we've been waiting so long for.
