Quick Update

Just a quick note - I'm happy to report that I called for my PAP results and everything is normal!! I'm officially healthy and ready to cycle for an ED or our next GS attempt. :)

I talked to my IM on Friday night, she sounded so tired, but good! They are having Miss Fiona's christening soon and Tom's mother is coming and it will be a very special event for them all! They sent some more pictures - and OH MY GOSH is she getting SO super chubby! She's adorable!! I showed Kent the pictures and he was so sweet, he said he would really like it if we get to see her again some day... awww. :) I know I'll get to see her when I go up for transfer, and maybe someday we'll make a family trek up there to visit!

I'm looking forward to talking with my IPs more about their hopeful timeline, I'm kind of hoping we end up more in the March/April range - I think we all need a little more time. I want to make sure they are fully settled and rested up and ready to start on a new journey! I don't want to rush anything just for the sake of doing it! It is fun to think about the future and all the planning and events to come, but I'm not quite ready to jump all the way back into it just yet! ;-) Still looking for EDIPs first! :)

Addictive, I Tell You!

I swear all I can think about lately is either getting matched to do an ED or desperately wanting January to get here so we can cycle again!! I've heard so many say it, but now I'm experiencing it first hand - being a part of the surrogacy community is definitely a special thing, and makes you feel SO great!

I haven't heard from my IPs too much lately, about once a week. It sounds like they are still doing well, just busy, busy with Miss Fiona!

Kent and I just got back from a great trip to Washington state to visit with my family which I really enjoyed! I had a really good time.

I guess I don't have much to ad really, I'm just anxious to get the ball rolling in one direction or another. I had originally signed up with 2 agencies (as an ED), and had 2 more contact me which I filled out paperwork for... I feel kind of weird being listed with 4 agencies and don't think I would have done that if I wasn't on a "timeline"... I keep hoping someone out there is looking for me!! :) Although right now, I think I'm only actively listed on 1 site, the others are still creating my profile...

I will keep updating when I hear anything!!

All Cleared by the OB!

I had my 6 week post partum check up on Friday and he said everything looks great!! I just have to wait a couple weeks to get my PAP results back.

I asked if he had any problems with me getting pregnant again, and he said no reason I couldn't be a surrogate again; they just like to see 18 months between deliveries which would mean cycling 8-9 months post delivery (February/March 2008). We are considering cycling a little earlier (maybe January), but I really want to do an ED first, so as long as I can donate no later than December (though I'm hoping for November) we can still cycle within that 9 month time frame!

I am signed up with a couple different agencies, but no news yet - its only been a couple weeks though!

Today is Labor Day and we have lunch with Kenneth's family. He's still in California - but he'll be home in about 2.5 more weeks!! Yay!! Kent and I are off to Washington for a very brief visit with my family over the weekend - we leave Thursday night. I think we'll start packing today, I know Tuesday through Thursday is going to fly by with work!

Miss Fiona is doing great, I talked to my IPs a few days ago and got some more adorable pictures of her. She's getting big! I guess that's my little update for now!
