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.

Counting Down Now!

I had my final monitoring appointment today. My lining is in the 12+ range and "perfect". Tonight is my last dose of lupron than PIO in the AM - counting down now!

I talked to IM and the clinic and we've decided to thaw two embies, assess quality, and thaw the third if either of the first two aren't looking favorable. If we do move forward with thawing the third they will all be transferred - assuming they are all considered viable - to increase the likelihood a pregnancy will occur.

Since my IF will be out of town I'm not dragging my husband along so, Daisy - my BFF and fellow surro - gets to be my transfer companion again - and IM will be there of course too. I'm not sure any of us are ready for the rollercoaster of testing but, at the same time excited to be here again too. Yay - just 6 more days!
