Ready...Set...Go!!!

Well, here we go again. Just got confirmation from Dr. Yashodhara as to how this cycle will go. When we start our meds., when we go for our ultra sounds and blood work, etc. etc. It's starting to become a reality and August will be here before we know it! We are still searching for our meds. They are gonna cost us a bundle this time. Triple the dose for 11 days (WHOA!) We almost feel like old pros now going to India. It certainly will feel a lot less stressful with all the knowledge we have gained.

Some really exciting news! I added our Surrogacy Support Group
so we can help others and answer some of their questions, share our struggles, hopes and successes.

I think I finally got Gerry to work on some 'tips' for our BLOG for others embarking on their own India adventure's to read. So stay tuned for that.

Some great couples we have met through the common bond of surrogacy are headed to India in the next 2 months to visit our Docs and we wish them the best of luck in their own journeys and hopes for some very happy endings. We send our love and prayers to these very special individuals who have been here for us every step of the way.

Happy Birthday to ME!

Yep, today was the BIG day one year older and my clock is ticking louder then ever....

Actually, I really had a nice Birthday. Frankie woke me up with plenty of kisses (that's the best!) I arrived at work to find my office, yet again full of decorations. I work with some great girls! My cell phone didn't stop ringing all day, from my Sweetheart wanting to be the 1st one to wish me a special day at 0630 (Trust me Honey, you were definitely the 1st! ) to Mom and Dad, to friends in Florida and family in Canada. Then to arrive home from work to many emails, Facebook messages, phone messages and e-cards coming as far away from as India. I barely made it through dinner with Jackie (my BFF) when my phone rang some more.
It truly was a special day and it makes me realize how blessed I am to be surrounded by such wonderful people who fill my life with love, support and pure happiness.

Thank you all, you made my big '38' a day to remember!

Starting back up again...

Well trying very hard to get back in the swing of things. Looking for some cheap (as in inexpensive) Gonal F since it appears we are going to be using a pretty high dose at 900iu's for 11 days. Trying to figure out the days that will work out best for us to travel after Gerry returns from Texas. Just simply trying to get my head in the game again. I have to apply for my U.S passport now and then reapply for my Indian travel visa, talk to my boss about time off, find medications and set up ultrasound dates, pick a new surrogate, coordinate with the Docs....

UGH... I need to slow down take a deep breathe and believe it will all be okay.
