Flyin' High

Just a quick update because I can't contain my excitement!!!! I just booked my flight for the transfer!!!! I booked one that will potentially let me meet up with Baby Mama and Baby Daddy on our connecting flights! And they asked if I wanted to fly in a few days before transfer, so we can have some breathing room before the big day. I'm so pumped. This is home for IM, so I'm going to get a totally backstage tour. It has to be serendipity that we're transferring her little embryo in her home state, and I'm hoping to birth him or her in Baby Daddy's home state! It's totally meant to be.




And I just can't hide it. Wooohoooooo!!!

I start my jibby jab injections in two days. Holy crap. Holy crap.

It's so real!!!!! I'm so pumped!!!

Baby dust is in the air!!

As we speak my cousin is at the doctor's office awaiting her blood test results. She and her hubs have been trying for years to get pregnant with no luck. After battling PCOS and a host of other issues, they decided to try IUI. And I just have the best feeling.

She said she was making dinner last night and almost barfed. Win.

I'll let you know how my first injections go Saturday. After a whole lot of freaking out because I didn't know what the heck I was doing, I went back through my emails and found the step by step instructions for the teeny weeny needles I have to use for the Lupron. So now I feel like a nerdo for freaking out. It's really not that big of a deal at all.

Except that it IS a big deal because....INJECTIONS MEAN TRANSFER IS NIGH!!!

Plus to add to my squealing, Baby Mama is talking about coming for a visit next week! I'm planning an elaborate girl's day hopefully featuring a junk food screening of Baby Mama with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Watching a ridiculous movie about surrogacy seems like the proper thing to do.

She may decide to back out of the whole thing after watching it with me. But it's a chance I'm willing to take. I'm hoping she'll decide we need to have a Wii Karaeoke jam session instead.


And sorry for all the exclamation marks and capital letters. My journalism professors are rolling over in their barstools.

The Journey Begins

I think my love of pregnancy stems from my mother. She always talked about her pregnancy with me as the most beautiful time in her life. She was always so positive and uplifting when describing her pregnancies that I think she partially brainwashed me into thinking pregnancy was magical and wonderful. 
My own pregnancies were every bit as amazing as I imagined they would be. I was plagued with morning sickness before I even got my first positive pregnancy test. I had severe backaches and my cankles were glorious. My acne flared up, and my hair got so thick it seemed greasy. People kindly told me I was "all belly", but I think they actually meant that my entire body looked like a swollen gut.
But none of it distracted me from the fascination I felt the first time I took a foot to the ribcage. The entire process of growing a human being inside my body completely blows my mind to this day. 
I was the crazy pregnant lady who knew what day my baby would grow fingernails or when s…

The Birth

Sorry I've been a bit quiet. I've been a little busy. ;)

Hmmm..where to start? Well Monday was our midwife appointment, and it was also a very important birthday. My Sweet Pea and Hubs of course!

So we went into the midwife, and really the only info I was interested in was if all my witchcraft and yoga poses had worked. Was the baby's head engaged correctly?

I was running a bit late because I'd taken Sweet Pea to a big giant inflatable indoor playground with her best buddy for her bday. I went in and immediately got my vitals. The nurse weighed me, and lo and behold the scale finally hit 180! That's my magical birthing weight. Weeks ago when I had my first run of prodromal labor I was at 182. Too much. Then the following two weeks I was 178. Too little.

But yesterday I was right at 180. See when I hit 180 lbs, a baby falls out of me. I started my pregnancy with Sunshine at 155. At 180 lbs, she came out. I started my pregnancy with Sweet Pea at 135. When I hit 180, …

Mommy and Me

I've been meaning to update since our group psych meeting last week, but I was in crunch mode since we decided on a last-minute trip to visit my in-laws to celebrate our nation's freedom. The irony is not lost on me.

So last week we had our group psych evaluation, which I was told about three hundred times is "an industry standard" by the lady doing our psych evaluation. I'm not sure any of us were super opposed to the meeting, so I don't know why she felt the need to assure us that EVERYTHING IS NORMAL!!! lol Umm it made me feel a bit like maybe everything was not normal. But that's psych evaluations for you.

I was a little nervous that I was going to have verbal diarrhea and just blurt out all kinds of craziness all over these people, so I made the Hubs meet me there so he could grab a muzzle if need be.
I just had so many questions and things I wanted to say to my IM since we have the weird no contact thing going. I just felt so in the dark about how t…
