Contracts, meds, transfer date, oh my!

Holy smokes, there's actually stuff going on! Contracts came and were signed with no issues or changes. All of my medications came today and I should start my period tomorrow. Then blood work on Thursday morning and starting meds after that! 2 weeks of estrogen, then an ultrasound to check my uterine lining, and 5 days of progesterone, then the transfer! 

That's right friends, we have a transfer date! December 19th is the big day! And a lot of girls usually get a BFP (big fat positive/positive home pregnancy test) 5dp5dt (5 days post 5 day transfer). Count out the days people, go ahead. Yep, 5 days after transfer is Christmas Eve! What a great Christmas gift that would be for my IP's, right?! I don't want to get my hopes up but I would just melt if it all worked out the first try and I could give them that gift. 

I loved watching my IP's with their son while I was there visiting and I just love the kind of people they are. They have such an adorable relationship and I can tell how much love and caring there is in their family. They are so calm and laid back, so relaxed. I think they are going to be amazing parents to their new baby and their future baby, too.

I feel more frequent updates coming on, as there is more going on these days! Can't wait for the days when I get to post ultrasounds and belly pictures :)

Well, I went to meet my IP's in person on Saturday, after our Skype match meeting a couple weeks ago. It went SO WELL! It wasn't awkward at all (which I was a little worried about!) and just felt really comfortable and natural. They picked me up from the airport and we went to lunch, then to this really cool shop (www.glassybaby.com), and then back to their house. I got to meet their baby, nanny, and 2 dogs. We just relaxed and chatted and then I had to go back to the airport :( The 3 of us seem to get along so well, and have the same views on a lot of things. They are easygoing on the things I have strong feelings about and vice versa, which is great! No conflicts yet, and I hope it stays that way!

Now we are just waiting on our contract to show up so we can review and sign it. I have a phone conference with the reproductive endocrinologist today, and hopefully he will give me/us a better idea of a timeline for the transfer. We are ready to move forward as soon as contracts are signed so if the lawyers could get to it, that would be GREAT! :)
