That’s basically all that’s going on right now with the surrogacy. It’s very important stuff, don’t get me wrong. It’s just appearing a little too static to be happening, know what I mean? But my weekly appointments at the local fertility clinic really do help as they slam me with a little “Booyah! In yo’ face!” action to show me that yeah, stuff’s happening alright.
At the moment I am taking 3 Estrace pills a day and doing my delestrogen shots once every 3 days and still doing daily Lupron injections as well. In addition I’m taking 5 prenatals a day (3 different types). It’s funny watching me take these. I have to drink TONS of water to take just one pill regularly so taking 5 is killing me. LOL I’m such a drama queen, I swear. I’m sitting there with my 5 pills whining the whole time about how full my belly is. Being around me when I’m old is going to be SO much fun for Kenny.
Starting a couple of weeks ago I started to go in for weekly bloodwork and ultrasound appointments. This is where they check my estrogen level and my uterine lining. Gotta get some nice, pretty numbers to be sure I’m ready to grab hold of those awesome embryos to grow my IF a beautiful baby. So far I’ve had great numbers. This past Tuesday my lining was already at 14. Yay! Great estrogen number as well.
Transfer is still set for the 8th or 10th of August (hoping for the 10th for that nice 5day transfer) and I’m feeling more anxious with each day. Eeeek, how exciting! Thankfully I’ve had to get back into the routine of being home to keep me busy. Clara starts school in a couple of weeks so getting her ready and appointments for myself and the kiddos has kept my mind busy as well. Plus I have started doing a new yoga routine that is supposed to help with fertility. Now, granted, these are meant to help those trying to conceive but the basic principles for doing them definitely applies. I’m a big dork, I know. Less than two weeks, ladies and gentlemen. Yay!
