WOOOHOOO AF came early this morning and I am just so happy about that..LOL who would have thought I would be happy my period came. I have heard so many stories that surrogate are supposed to get their period and I don't know if it is nerves or excitement but their period is late and throws off the transfer dates... So i was very happy when she came just 1 day after I expected her to.. So I have my VERY FIRST official cycle appointment tomorrow with Dr. Trout!! I met her last October when Marisa came out here. She was VERY nice and warm not like most Dr's now a days. Tomorrows appointment is so they can check my lining and make sure it is doing what it is supposed to do so my fingers are still crossed for that. If all goes well I start Lupron tomorrow night!! and then Estrace on Friday! I am so excited...

So Marisa and her hubby went to St. Martins for a week long vacation which they DESPERATELY needed. She had become almost like a sister to me. We talk about 3-4 time per week and it is very nice that we have built this bond. Well she said she got me a turtle charm for good luck for the transfer!! She is such a doll it is just crazy. She is going through some things that I am very worried about for her with her journey. I just think that people see an opportunity to take advantage of her in such a time of desperation and heartache and it makes me sick to my stomach. All I can do is pray she makes the right decision and that God protects her no matter what decision she does make.......

Well here's to getting the OK tomorrow and actually really getting this ball rolling!!

OK I am so OVER THE MOON HAPPY it is crazy I just got my meds and I am happy. I never in my life would have thought that I would be happy to to get a box full of needles and medicine that may just make me cranky....LOL I have also thought about bringing my puppy Zeus with me to the transfer. I think I am going to be staying with the guys so I have asked them and am just waiting to hear back from them. FINGERS crossed!!

Transfer dates!!!!!

Well I finally heard from the clinic last week and I now have a estimated transfer date of July 3-5th!! I am so excited but at the same time a little disappointed because K may not be able to go with me, so I most likely will be traveling by myself....I am sure that the guys will be very nice and accommodating but I just wanted a travel buddy..

CONTRACTS are signed and done!!! I mailed them out on Tuesday to M&M and their lawyer. I am so happy and excited that it is done and we are now moving on to transfer time!!! I am still holding out immense hope that our transfer will be in June! I spoke with Marisa this week and she is working on contracts right now!! She actually let me look at the contract! I know we have become pretty close friends over these past few months but I think that just solidified it.. They are planning on a July transfer and I just think it would so COOL if I and she ( her GC) were preggo at the same time!!!

Well as for my teeth i go to the dentist on the 20th to get my tooth pulled AND some more cavaties filled!

Friday, May 1, 2009

Well this has been a crazy week!! It started out very normal except for my tooth so I HAD to get an appointment and went to the dentist on Wednesday and now the tooth that I tried to save 2 yrs. ago needs to be taken out because of the dentist that did all the work on it, turns out he perforated my root and now I have an infection in my BONE. The new dentist wants to charge me 2200 for everything including pulling my tooth, sedation and filling 5 cavities.. I know 5 cavities is ridiculous but whatever. Kaleva was needless to say PISSED that after we spent 1700 last time for my teeth and this is with insurance..LOL So he wanted me to call the other dentist and tell him what is happening and see if he is willing to cover some of these costs... GOOD news is he is willing to cover some of the costs but I will not find out exactly how much until I go in on Monday to see him and get more x-rays taken.. It is feeling much better since I have started the antibiotics but I still have some pain. OK now on to Taylor's speech appointment which went very well and then I had the insurance guy come today so I can get that ball on the road. i am very happy to say I HAVE THE FINAL contract in my hands!! All we have to do is sign and send it back to the lawyers!!! So happy! I emailed Tiffany from the clinic again to get some more details since I cannot walk around not knowing anything..LOL I just HAVE to know when I will start meds, what kind of protocol the RE wants me on ect.... I am just so excited I can hardly wait to start poking myself with needles.. CRAZY right?? Well that is actually part of the JOY of being a surrogate mother!! LOL
