Round TWO in 5..4..3..2.....

Just days away from the transfer now!! My guys flew in last night and will be staying until the transfer. The egg retrieval and sperm deposit is happening.....probably as I type this!! The egg donor has produced great follicles, so that's super duper exciting.

I had my final monitoring appointment this morning and everything looks amazing--GO ME!! My uterine lining is 16.27mm and I've got that precious triple stripe that us surrogates all strive for (when the two uterine walls are so thick that they touch in the middle, creating an image on the ultrasound that looks like three stripes. See photo below.). Some say my oven is over heating with my uterine lining measurement, LOL.....I just say that I'm an over achiever. ;) Everything will be fine with that cushy lining and baby will be nice and snuggled in for a good 9 months.

I got this off the internet, but you can see the triple stripes in the very middle

I'm no longer cautiously excited.....I'm full blown ecstatic about our upcoming transfer!!!!! It's really, really going to happen this time!!! I shared a few good/happy/proud tears with myself this morning while driving home from the clinic. I've come so far with my journey, and now my IPs and my path is merging together perfectly to make this wonderful miracle happen. Such a beautiful thing!!

This time next week i'll probably be peeing on a stick and looking for that POSITIVE!!!

I'll leave you with a bit of cuteness......
I caught my daughter giving herself a "shot" with a left over sucker stick. She started with the belly shot and worked her way to the butt shot. "Look Mom, it doesn't hurt!"
That's what I tell her when she watches me do my shots.
Future surrogate, maybe?? We shall see....
