If you are shocked by this post and feel like you are missing something, you may want to check out this post about me deciding to be a surrogate. I am matched with an amazing couple as I have mentioned in the past and we finally got date for our first and hopefully only transfer! Our transfer is set for the 24th or 26th of October, depending on whether we go with a 3 or 5 day transfer. My medicine arrived in the mail yesterday and feast your eyes on what is the surrogacy cocktail. Is wrong that I am really excited to see these needles? It means we are that much closer.
I start the Lupron shots on the 26th which are little insulin shots off to the right in the picture that go in your stomach once a day. I add in Delestrogen shots every three days on the 3rd which I already showed you a picture of a month or so ago. They are the larger needles on the far left in the picture. They are intramuscular and go in the upper outer quadrant of your booty. Last, I add in daily Progesterone in oil (PIO) shots around the 21st of Oct. and if everything goes well and I get a positive pregnancy test, those will continue until about 10 weeks pregnant. I have a screening appointment on the 3rd of Oct and also on the 17th to check my lining and levels and if all looks good, it is off to bake a baby!
If you have any questions about surrogacy, always feel free to ask. I am happy to answer them.
