Yesterday’s appointment

So yesterday I had my second ultrasound and blood draw. Everything is going wonderful. The dr said my lining was at a 8 so that’s good. I counted and only 19 days with today until transfer! All my meds will be the same but I’m going to start taking extra estrogen pills 2x in the morning and 2x at night starting on Monday! Hello extra hormones! J and I are getting soooo excited about transfer day! I told her I can’t wait to have her baby. My next appointment for ultrasound and blood work is now next Thursday at 10:30. I need to remember to tell them to take the blood from my left arm because now my right one is sore and bruised. I’m still taking belly shots every night. These are the easy ones I do myself. Soon enough ricky will be taking over with the awful butt shots… They hurt and bleed. I think he enjoys doing them sometimes, I bet he thinks of all the times I annoy him, make him mad or start nagging and then bam he’s ready to hurt me lol. Let’s keep praying everything continues to go this well and that we get to transfer day with no issues!

Better late then never!

Sorry guys! I know this is super late! So after my first doctor appointment here, things are still going good. I’m still on my Lupron that makes me moody, but I’m also now on estrogen patches. Woohoo that makes the headaches go away! I now do the Lupron every night and two patches of estrogen every other day! Then I’ll also start Estrace two times a day on Wednesday! I’m honestly not exactly sure what that does, as I’ve never had to take that with my other two transfers. So as of now, everything is going well. I have another appointment for an ultrasound and blood work this Thursday! I’ll try to update a bit sooner then this last time.

First blood work and ultrasound appointment!

I’ve been taking my nightly shots of Lupron every night and took my last birth control pill last Friday! Funny story the other night I gave myself the shot only to realize I never got the medication in there… So I stabbed my self twice that night lol. Anyhow I had to wait for my period to start before they would set up my first ultrasound and blood work appointment! I finally started bleeding this morning. Gross I know but I was super excited about getting to the next step and so was J! I will have a appointment on Thursday at 11:00. After that they will send all the info to the dr in Florida. They will then call me with further medication instructions and hopefully more ultrasound appointments. I’ll hopefully be able to update more after Thursday’s appointment!


Tonight was my first shot! It hurt a bit more then I remembered lol. These are at least the easy ones I can do! It won’t be long now before I’m all crazy and mean from my body being put into menopause. Hello hot flashes lol. As long as things keep going perfect and the transfer works I’ll be taking shots for the next three and a half months!!! So for a little fun info I’ll be doing Lupron shots then I should get estrogen patches and maybe pills too as well as moving to Progesterone shots.

Guess who’s back…!!!

So I’ve been thinking of doing another journey for awhile now. You all know I’m crazy and just LOVE being pregnant. It’s been a year and a half since I had Grace! It’s crazy it’s been that long already. She’s absolutely a doll and crazy and adventurous. I’m still very close to Molly and talk to her often. I love getting pictures of the girls and face timing with them. I’m sure you are all wondering if I could be doing this for Molly and Jon again. Sadly no they are done still. Believe me I asked! It was hard for me to decide if I could be a surrogate again. Only because I was so worried about finding a couple that I felt like we/I would connect with and like. Things had been so great with my previous two journey’s I didn’t want to jeopardize or tarnish that experience in anyway. It was scary chatting with new couples and looking at profiles trying to decide if everyone liked each other and the important things lined up. I can absolutely confidently say I have found an incredible couple who are so sweet, funny and kind! They will be wonderful parents and I feel so blessed that they like and trust me to help them! They have no children yet and I think it’s safe to say we’re all very eager to change that! This couple is a bit more private as far as sharing names and pictures go. So of course I’ll be respectful of that. They are from Florida the sunshine state! Oh how I wish I was there now! In the blog I’ll be referring to them by their initials so (mom/IM/baby mamma) will be J and (dad/IF/baby daddy) will be K. We are actually all set up and ready to go! My medical clearance has been done as well as contracts! Now I will be starting meds on Monday!!!! Shots shots shots… (not the fun ones) as long as all goes well I will be back in Florida for the embryo transfer February 13/14/15. The dr will pick one of those days to put the baby in! I’m secretly hoping for a Valentine’s Day transfer. How sweet would that be! I will say I’m not super excited about all the shots again the hormones really make me crazy! As we all know transfers are never a guarantee so please keep us In your thoughts and prayers that this sweet baby will want to dig in deep and hang out with me for 10 months! I’ve been so blessed that both of my previous transfers have worked the first times and I’m definitely hoping I can keep that track record going. I’ll go ahead and add some pictures of a few things, and I’ll update more as I start meds and things start to move forward. Thanks as always to all my family and friends who support me and my crazy life decision’s I truly appreciate you all!
