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.
We started the cycling process again just after the Christmas holiday. Things are coming along and so far so good. My first monitoring appointment after doing Lupron injections for a week, the baseline, was to make sure we were at a good starting point for the rest of the process. All looked good and I got instructions to continue with the protocol. A week ago I started adding in estrogen patches (E2)- 2 every other day. Today, before sunrise, I made the snowy trek to the monitoring clinic and all looks great. My lining was measured at 9.67mm and "looking pretty". Ideal is anything over 8mm. I'll hear from FCI this afternoon to confirm the b/w and u/s results and go over the next steps but with a little less than two weeks till transfer, things are looking good.
