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.

Meds have arrived

The meds have arrived and cycling will officially begin in just a few days time. The first step is BCP which will start when AF shows next week. I'll be putting a call into the clinic then to find out when Estrace starts and monitoring appointments begin. When reviewing my meds list with the pharmacy I found out we'll be doing PIO this time....oh my! I actually enjoy the injections (strange I know) but up to this point I've only done sub-q ones which are a piece of cake. Those inter muscular ones can be a b**** from what I hear and the needles are quite intimidating. It looks like the RE is only doing a 10 day regimen though and then weaning on to suppositories or doing some kind of combo so at least it isn't weeks and weeks of arse poking.

I haven't seen our calendar/protocol yet but according to the IVF coord all is on track. The retrieval should be between Aug 10th-12th putting transfer the 15th - 17th. I risk sounding like a total country bumpkin saying this but our dates fall right over the Boone County Fair weekend and I'll be disappointed to have to miss watching my brother in the demo derby. It is all for a good cause though. We'll just have to wait and see.

Still no word yet about contracts, we should be reviewing those very very soon so hopefully I'll hear something in the next week or so.
