Surro Files - We Have A Date!!!!!!

Eeeeeeeeeek!!!!!!!  Ok, I know I just wrote you all yesterday, but I just had to let you all know the great news!  After I posted yesterday I got word of a tentative embryo transfer schedule.  Today I got word that the schedule was approved by both myself and the egg donor.  We are a go!!!!!  Of course the 1st person I e-mailed was the soon to be mommy, Belle.  I wish she was here so we could jump up and down in excitement together.  I know we're both jumping for joy across the seas though.  Eeeeeeeeek!!!!!! That's all I can say.  So this is how it's all going to go down.

Surrogacy Transfer DateMay 4th - I will start my new pack of birth control pills.

May 19th - I will start my Lupron injections.  This will suppress my ovaries and make sure I don't ovulate.

May 25th - I will take my last birth control pill.

May 29th - I will go in for a monitoring checkup to check my uterus lining.

May 30th - I will most likely start taking Estradiol if all looks well.  This is a pregnancy hormone that helps to grow the lining of the uterus and maintain a pregnancy.  This is needed since the doctors are trying to kick start a pregnancy that was not started on it's own in my body.

June 5th - I will go in for another monitoring checkup.

June 13th - I will go in for another monitoring checkup.  If all looks well then we are a go for the transfer.

Week of June 17th - Transfer Week !!!!  We will fly out to Connecticut for the transfer.  This trip will take about 5 days to include monitoring, the transfer, and some rest time before we fly back home.

Eeeeeeeek!!!!!!!  It's all so exciting!
