My lining is thick. How thick is yours? 🙂
Well today was the big appointment where we found out if all of the medication was working its magic.
I am not going to lie, I was a tad but nervous. I mean I have been following the specific directions of the doctor but I guess I have just read so many other blogs where people talk about their body not responding to them and I was just hoping that wasn’t going to be our case.
The hubs and I got up nice and early and got ready to head out. The kids stayed at the hotel and slept in. Little did we know, the IVF center was 7 miles from the La Costa resort where we were staying. It was pretty awesome. It only took us about 10 minutes to get there.
We arrived right on time, as we waited in the lobby I begun to think that after all of this we were going to get bad news. We went to out ultrasound room, I got undressed and in came the doctor and her nurse. The doctor is somewhat dry but her nurse is such a sweet heart. They performed the vaginal ultrasound and Dr. Arnold was very pleased with my progress. I measured in at 14.6 which is very good from what I understand. Yeaaaahhhh then they drew blood 😦 never fun being poked. The labs came back perfect as well which was double good news.
This is a picture of the uterus lining which is looking just as it is supposed to 🙂
Blood Draws are never fun… But it is what it is and during this process it happens a lot…
What a relief. As soon as we got back in the car I immediately texted the IP’s to deliver the great news. They were just as excited as we were :-).
We headed back to the resort to pick up the kiddos and got ready to go to breakfast and head to our next stop on our mini vacation.
Breakfast was at an awesome place called the Broken Yolk. Wow this food was the best so far. Definitely going back sometime.
After breakfast we headed to the next resort called Paradise Point Resort. This place is amazing. It is located next to Sea World on Mission Bay. We got an amazing room right on the bay with a fire pit outside. It was perfect for a weekend getaway. We went swimming for a few hours then headed back to our room to prepare for our fancy dinner at “Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse”. I absolutely love this place and the kids do now as well. If you haven’t ever been and love good food it’s must!
This is the beautiful view from our resort room… Yes it is amazing…
We went for a little walk before our dinner to check out all of the cool ships on the dock…
A beautiful sunset never gets old……
This was such a fun time eating dinner watching the sunset…
The kids had an awesome time and even got dessert at the end of the night 🙂
Our next step in our surrogacy journey is a follow up ultrasound next Friday. The transfer day is coming soooo fast.
Until next time.
