I'll take OMG for $1,000 Please!!

Completely unexpected I came home this evening, went through the mail pile and there it was. A calendar of events from the doctors office!! We have a date.... December 12!!!

This has instantly become so real to me and mom today. I don't have the calendar in front of me right this second, but i think my shots begin like the 2nd week in November.

Time to get these contracts signed!

I see a light!

No call from the doctors office today, BUT a call from mom! She said she was at the "doctors office" this morning to finalize the egg donor. I'm so happy for her with this step. She said our doctor told her that we would be looking at December for our transfer and that she is finalizing dates and cycles, then would get me a calendar. You know what this means....back to waiting ; )
I have visuals and thoughts of giving her the best Christmas present EVER!!!

Monday, October 10, 2011's here!

I got my period last Wednesday night. Too late to call the "doctors office", so i waited til morning. Left a message for my doctor pretty early, as she was on her way between offices. Waited all day for a call backi, hoping I was getting a transfer date and no call. So around 4:15, i decided to try them back. They were closed.

Friday morning I called back again. Come to find out, my Doctor is out of the office all day. Lovely.
Got a call back later that day with instructions to start my birth control Sunday night and I will hear from her Monday or Tuesday. Monday has come and gone, no call. Crossing fingers my anxiety (good anxiety) is put to rest tomorrow with a phone call telling me whats next, the suspense is KILLING ME!

So close, I can feel it!

I know that even once we actually get to transfer day there are still tons of possibilities and still a very long journey ahead to get to to our goal..But our journey in surrogacy thus far has been just as long. So, to be at the point where we are today - I can't help but feel so anxious and very positive.

I went to my ultrasound appointment last Tuesday and my lining from my "mock" was 8.4 and it needs to be at least 7.5. This means I finally passed the "mock" and we start the real deal!!!

We are working on bringing on my period now and on day one I need to call my doctor to tell her.
I'm really not sure what happens next but i know in a few days I will.

I have lots of unknowns at this time. The main one is wondering when our transfer date will be.

For now..i leave with this final note "COME ON PERIOD"    (this may be the first and last time I ever write that)
