About Me

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.

Good News ???

I drove into the Highland Park FCI clinic bright and early - my nurse coordinator wanted the u/s tech there to take a look and see first hand what's going on. He asked how I was doing, I said could be better - feeling a little frustrated since in my previous three cycles all went well and now this. He commented that if all the RE had to do was give us meds and then say, "Come back for transfer" he'd be out of a job. Cycles change, responses change - makes sense but still - GAH! Anyway, he didn't say much while scanning me besides, "Doesn't look like much to write home about". I asked if he could still see the fluid and he said yes, but my lining was a nice and he saw "just a drop" of fluid. I could even tell by the u/s image that today looked different than yesterday - so good news???

The clinic called and said they reviewed the blood work and u/s and instructions are to continue my meds and they will contact me Monday to let me know if further monitoring is needed before transfer. Her tone was very "unconcerned" so I guess I'll go with that for now and try not to worry either. Staying positive that K&S's totsicles will be moving in soon.
