Anyway, I have not been good at keeping the people the care and read informed. I just have lost my urge to blog. I’ve been overwhelmed by how behind I am and it makes blogging less enjoyable. And I primarily do this to be a brain dump of everything going on so I can look back later and be like “oh yeah!”
Maybe I’ll get better at posting. Maybe not. But at a minimum I should let you all know where things are with Growing Asian Babies part 2 or GAB for short. I totally just spent 3 minutes trying to think of a fun acronym and GAB is all you got…I’m sorry I have failed you. By my next blog maybe I’ll come up with a better name. Or just forget that I made up a lame acronym…that is far more likely.
SOOO as I was saying – or not saying and just rambling and getting easily distracted – things are moving with my next surrogacy!
Tonight Justin will stick a medium sized needle into my rump…hopefully his months of practice from a year ago will kick in and it will go well. I have Dr. L again (I actually requested that whatever Intended Parents (IP) I match with I wanted to work with Dr. L). The medications are pretty much the same except no progesterone suppositories, instead injections twice a day instead of once a day. Sad Day. But in the end Dr. L says the results are better this way and it will be worth it to help those babies stick and grow! I'll need a new heating pad to warm my rear end to reduce the pain (1 for home, 1 for work).
The schedule is below if you want to see the details and you can go here to see what all the drugs are if you are interested.
The summary is:
· March 5th I’ll go in for an ultrasound to check the “triple lining”…in other words my uterus is ready to catch some babies
· March 12th I’ll have 2 embryos transferred via IVF. I’m not sure the gender yet.
· March 14th I’ll start my 10 day countdown with blogs about all the random crap I’m thinking about or doing in those 10 days (it helps me not stress)
· March 24th I’ll have a blood test done to see if I’m pregnant
For those of you that are new to my blog, or new to me (HI! I’m Rachael, nice to meet you). During my last surrogacy there was some drama. Drama from people who didn’t understand what I was doing. And for that reason I’ve decided that at the bottom of each Surrogacy Blog I will provide a little disclaimer.
