Ready to go!

My mid-cycle scan (ultrasound) and labs came back great today! My uterine lining is measuring 11.8mm and with a triple stripe (yay!!). In the surrogacy world, it's ideal to have a uterine lining over 7-8mm and with a triple stripe. The "triple stripe" occurs 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. The image below that I found on Google shows a great triple stripe. You can see it in the center of the photo.



We have a week to go until transfer day; Saturday, November 15th. I'm feeling good. My uterus feels heavy, tender, and achy. I chalk it up to the thick uterine lining I've got going on. I'm proud of my body and how well it is responding to the medications.

Next Saturday also happens to be my Surro-babe's 1st birthday party; He turns one next Sunday. I'm so bummed that I'll be missing his 1st birthday but hope to make a trip up north to visit him and his daddies very soon.
