It's Official!

I am now a surrogate!  Well, as of October 26th I was.  That's when all of the contracts were signed, sealed and delivered.  That is crazy...  Next Friday, one week from today, I start taking shots.  This will be a whole new experience for me and I can't wait.  I am sure after a few days, I will be over it, but for now it seems exciting.

Getting to this point has taken a while, but I know in the end it will be worth it.  The day I got the contracts I was super excited.  But I knew that this was a HUGE life changing decision.  I mean, I am using my body to give someone else a baby!  So of course I had to reflect on it a bit.  My wise friend, ElleBee, said something that made it very easy: "This is an opportunity for you to make a difference in this jacked up world of ours.  No question about it that you should do it." That's why I love her.

I printed two copies.  Me and the hubs signed and initialled about ONE BILLION pages and sent them to our lawyer.  Now all is set.  I am ready for all this adventure has to bring.... I think. 

So next Friday I start Lupron shots.  Not sure what this does.... suppresses estrogen maybe???  That link back there says but it's still very confusing to me.  I bet in 3 months I will be an expert.  Anyway, those go into my stomach.  EVERYDAY.

Feel free to join me on this journey.  From shots to morning sickness to hand delivering a baby to the Intended Father, I have a feeling this is going to be a fun and probably bumpy ride!
