An Egg-cellent Brunch!

My husband and I attended a nice brunch with Robbie and Allen, Robbie's parents, and the egg donor and her boyfriend this past Saturday. It was so nice meeting the rest of the "baby making" team! Not many surrogates have the opportunity to meet the "other woman" (in a surrogacy with two dads anyway), so I feel very fortunate to have met their egg donor. She has asked to remain anonymous, so out of respect I have covered her face appropriately with an egg head.



The hardest part about brunch was keeping the transfer details from Robbie's parents!! I was so nervous I'd be the one to spill the beans by accident! I'm not good at keeping secrets and/or telling fibs. My facial expression always gives it away. Luckily, they didn't ask specific questions, so we're in the clear. Robbie and Allen have something special planned to announce the BIG news once we're officially pregnant, so the secret remains for a while longer.

Meds are coming along nicely. I'm starting to get that heavy feeling in my uterus, so I know the Delestrogen injections are working as they should be. I go in Friday for my mid-cycle scan and more blood work (story of a surrogate's life!). Fingers crossed everything looks perfect!!

Transfer in 9 days!!! Omg.
