How do you make babies?

How do you make babies?
Simple, one baby step at a time. Ha ha ha. Especially when you're dealing with surrogacy.
There are lots of baby steps involved and they are all exciting and important.

There are multiple baby steps within the contract phase which is where we are now.
I was excited this morning because we were one step closer to signing contracts.
Then I started my period which is one of the next steps. Exciting little things.
I didn't expect to start my period for another week or two. It's been a little off kilter lately. 
The clinic had calculated that my next period would start today, January 28th. That was too precise. I thought yeah, good luck with that. That would be 28 days since my last period which was January 1st. My period is usually more like every 30 days or so when things aren't out of whack.

And yet somehow we're right on target. Which means a fast track to our embryo transfer. *hopefully*
The clinic started me on Estrace (Estradiol) and Baby Aspirin today. I started Prenatal Vitamins a few weeks ago. I think I mentioned that this time around we are doing a no shot protocol. It is so weird for me to do this without shots. But I'm not complaining.

I am super excited and full of happy, positive energy.
The only hold up is finalizing the contract. We are this close, but there are a few loose ends.
I am praying and keeping fingers crossed that everything keeps falling into place.

IF all goes well and quickly with contracts we are looking at February 18 as our earliest possible transfer date. We're talking just a few weeks. Oh my gosh! 

I have had lots of good signs lately from everything happening today to an awesome positive pregnancy dream the other night.
Wish us luck to get to the next baby step. 


  1. I thought I had you on my reader... problem fixed! It sounds like the countdown has begun!

    1. I'm glad you got it fixed. :)
      Yes it has. I can't wait to see what's in store for us.


Thank you for your comments! I'll try to return the favor.
