And So it Begins

One week from today I will be heading to LA for my screenings. I am excited to get the ball rolling and at the same time thrilled that I will have some alone time (I have only had a few hours alone from my kids in the past six months - maybe this will get me caught up. I need to miss them again). I am most looking forward to finding out a potential time line for the rest of this journey. I'm still pretty sure I will transfer in August, but I'd like to hear that from the Dr. Anyway, can't wait!!!!

Back to the Good Old Waiting Game

Oh how I don't miss the waiting... But I do savor the anticipation of what's to come. Right now I am waiting for my cycle (period) to come and then we can finally begin. It's looking like mid-June that I will fly out to LA for screenings (ugh) and then some more waiting before the match meeting - which I can't wait for. And then, of course, even more waiting before the transfer. I have been told that the Dr. wants 6 months between birth and next transfer so I'm thinking it won't be until August until we will transfer. Now all of this is if everything goes according to plan. Hopefully I will pass my screening (you never know) and hopefully the match meeting results in a match or else there will be no transfer. I am really looking forward to everything and have to say that this is just one of the numerous reasons I love being a surrogate!
