Me as a Gestational Carrier!!

** A moment in my Tummy, forever in my heart**

Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm not the best writer so bare with me as I try to tell about my experience :) I am a mom of 4 ranging from ages 13-3. About 12 years ago I decided that one day I would help a family bring a child into this world. In 2011 I met my first Intended family and delivered a baby boy on Aprils fools Day 2012. I now am matched with my second family and I look forward to what this journey brings to us.

Patriotic baby

Wednesday when I went into the clinic we did not see my egg in my ovary anymore,  I had ovulated. Then we knew transfer date would be July 24th.  If there is a baby in my belly we will have a patriotic baby. My Period started on July 4th then we transferred on July 24th (Utah's Birthday) This baby likes
As sunday came along I was so busy I didn't have much time to think about Transfer which was awesome. It didn't even hit me till we were driving to the clinic. 

We had our appointment at 1 and I needed to have a full bladder but of course I needed to pee at 12:30 so I then started loading up on the fluids again. When we got there my cute IP"S were there ready to get the show on the road. I could tell my Intended daddy was excited but very nervous. It was very sweet! They gave me Valium then we headed back to change. Into our Hot and sexy Transfer outfits. My Ip's were just as cute in their yellow gowns and blue hats and shoe covers. My Intended mom had high heels under her blue shoe covers, I wondered how she could walk. I would fall flat on my face!! 

So after we got our photo shoot out of the way (which Im mad I didn't put my flash on :( ) we went into the OR. They wanted to start but my bladder was not full yet so the Dr. went and did another surgery by the time the were ready to come back I had to PEE! I really thought I would pee on the Dr. especially with an Ultrasound wand on my belly. So I had to pee just a little bit then come back to the stirrups.  Then it was time KNOCK ME UP!!!  The embryologist came in to tell us about the embryos and Im thinking due to Valium and holding pee in I only heard one embryo completely hatched.  I had to call my IM and ask her the rest after I was not loopy. She said " 1 hatched completely and one was hatching as we transferred." Then when we were done my husband had to ask the Dr. How he felt about him knocking up his wife.  Leave it to my handsome dork to make everyone laugh. After I came home after and laid in bed and now Im still being very lazy!  So now the dreaded wait till pee on stick time :)!!! Oh i'm nervous!!!!
