Yes, you! Out there in internet land, you miss me!? I know you do! I haven't been blogging this week because I have felt like poo- yet again! I have been coughing since Monday and it is rather unpleasant. I'm pretty sure I have bronchitis because, well, my mom has the same symptoms so I sent her to the doctor and he said she has bronchitis. Good enough for me. I'm feeling better but still coughing. I think I have inferior lungs.
Anyway, I thought I would give a quick surrogacy update for all you that missed me :) A week ago, we found out that the judge would not waive the home study. It has been ordered, assigned to an investigator, and the paperwork, on our part, has been completed. Now, we wait. We're hoping this all gets done SOON, but there are no guarantees. However since we were not able to skip it (we must seem seedy?), we will not make our original March 3rd egg retrieval. IF the home study is done in time, we are looking at an April 1st egg retrieval and transfer on either the 4th or 6th. Dawn and I had our teaching visit with the IVF nurse on Monday. It was a lot of "stick the syringe in this bottle" and "pull it out to here" and "stick it straight into your fat, flabby stomach" (okay I added the "fat, flabby" part). We are hoping, once again dependent on the great state of Texas, that we will start our injections on March 10. I really hope I remember everything when it gets here (note to self: ginkgo biloba). It's exciting! I just wish it wasn't so much hurry up and wait.
Well, that's all I've got for now. Behave yourselves and I'll be back soon. I promise.
