Transfer should be less than a couple weeks away! I’m so excited☺️ I’ll be starting blood tests on my day 10, so this Friday. Between then and when I ovulate, I’ll be taking blood tests daily as well as having 1-2 ultrasounds to check on my uterin lining. Once I ovulate, we’ll book my flight out to my IPs fertility clinic for 4 days later. The way things look now, we should be doing the transfer on the 19th or so.
I’ve decided that instead of dragging my kids out there or making my sister come with me, I’m just going to take the time to relax and not have to worry about anything. A bit part of preparation for the transfer is making sure I’m not stressed. I’ll be going to a few acupuncture appointments over the next couple weeks, then a session just minutes before the transfer. I’m going to try to do some yoga and meditation to keep calm. I’ve been drinking quite a bit of juice(kale, lemon, pear, orange, grapefruit, ginger) each day to cleanse my system and keep healthy. Some things I’ve been eating to help with uterin lining are POM juice, sweet potatoes, avocados, and there are many more things that could help that I’ll probably eat as well.
Here’s a lemonade I made of lemon, pear, and ginger juice, maple syrup, and spirulina.
My IPs are getting so excited about the transfer, I can’t even imagine what it’s like for them. I’ve been in touch with everyone and done everything I need to to get ready for this, all that’s left is the contract. And yes, I know it’s cutting it a little close. Though, remember when we were going to transfer last month and how close that would have been? Glad we waited😖 I believe that my lawyer is just looking things over and they’ll get in contact with me. I know they have all the information they need to get started as well as the contract. It shouldn’t take too long since they’re the local expert on surrogacy law. And again, I’m not worried about what’s in the contract because my IPs have made sure that I’m covered for absolutely everything in the contract and they’ve been super open about everything. Of course I’ll still take a look at everything and make sure there’s nothing missing, but I still don’t believe this is going to be a lengthy process.
So that’s where I’m at right now! Trying to de-stress, keeping busy with pre transfer appointments, and trying to be healthy😁 My birthday’s coming up just before the transfer and I’m pretty excited that my husband will be home for that😘
