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.

Things are coming along

I had another monitoring appointment today. I was pleasantly surprised to run into IM at the office, we didn't have plans to meet this time but she had an appointment right before mine so we had some time to chit chat in the office while I waited my turn.

IM's check went well, she has 5 follicles right now and are hoping to see a few more pop up in the coming days, ideally 10 would be great.

My bloodwork and u/s went good too. Ovaries were clear and my lining was at 7.43mm, we want to see it get to at least 8mm so with a little less than two weeks to go that shouldn't be a problem. What is important is they see a triple stripe which indicates a good "landing pad for the embroys" and that is looking fine. Estradoil level was 387 which she said was great so my instructions are to continue with 5u Lupron daily and 2mg Estrace 3x a day.

IM's next monitoring appointment is Tuesday so I'll hear from the clinic then when my next appointment will be and soon we'll begin to get confirmed dates of when everything will take place.
