Getting off the Meds

Getting off the Meds

Back again with some fantastic news! I won the lottery! I told my boss off and quit my job and I’m now sitting at the Lamborghini dealership signing the paperwork on my new Aventador SV Coupe so I can race around the bay area in style! Not really, I didn’t win the lottery and I’m actually sitting behind a computer typing this wishing that I could drive something better than mom car. Now for the real news, after my wife’s…

Timely Thoughts

Timely Thoughts

Everything so far has been Timely. This is something that can easily be taken for granted. Everything is running like clockwork, even my wife’s body is following suit. The baby inside her is progressing perfectly, right on time. All the events behind us have been executed in a timely fashion. We haven’t had a need to reschedule or change anything from our initial plans with the exception of the whole polyp scare which brought a slight reconfiguration of flight schedules and an…

Pregnancy Confirmation

Pregnancy Confirmation

So a few days after the transfer Mandy started to take at home pregnancy tests because we don’t have patience and we want to know if the transfer is successful as soon as we can. I know that the home tests can be inaccurate and the only official test is a blood test from the clinic but they are still pretty accurate.  She took tests after 3, 4, 5, and 6 days after the transfer and the results were gradually…

Yes, I am included in this surrogacy because I am the husband, and I do provide a good amount of support to my wife as she goes on this wonderful journey as a surrogate. What I am eluding to when…

Needles and Pills

Needles and Pills

Okay, so Mandy and I have signed all the legal paperwork and the next step is her first trip to Portland OR. This is only a day trip, and really the procedure was only about 15 minutes long. The procedure that was performed was a sonohystergram, or where the OB/GYN inserts a catheter in your cervix, adds either a salt solution(NACL) or sugar solution (sorbitol) to expand the uterus so they can check for any abnormalities or polyps on the…

Going back to the Start

Going back to the Start

Okay, so I jumped around a little bit but let’s get back on track! So from a chronological standpoint, the last thing I posted about was me explaining the beginning steps of the surrogacy process and how we came to have a child of our own after deciding to wait and how the love of being pregnant, as well as other motivators, led Mandy to want to be a surrogate. That post can be found here and if you want to know…

Thoughts on transfer day.

Thoughts on transfer day.

Hello, everyone! I just wanted to dive a little deeper on what I was feeling and thinking on my wife’s transfer day. I explained what we did on the day before and the day of the transfer but I didn’t quite touch on my experience of it all. So let’s start with morning breakfast. Patrick, Damien, Mandy, and I were sitting at a table in the restaurant eating breakfast and Patrick and Damien wanted to take us on the tram…
