First monitoring appointment
Next week I go and have my lady bits inspected by the evil Dr. G. to make sure that the lupron has succeeded in putting me into menopause and quieting my ovaries. If it has, then I will lower my lupron and start enormous amounts of estrogen. I hate my monitoring doctor. This is the glorious jerk that told me after my last transfer that my uterus was thin and would rupture and I would die. Completely freaked me out until I realized he really just doesn't like surrogates. (How can you be a RE and not like surrogates...seriously?) Anywho, I can't wait to see him and tell him that my poor thin uterus carried an almost 8 pound baby to 41 weeks and endured hours of senseless labor before being cut again. He thinks I'm only in surrogacy for the money, in spite of the fact that he knows that I'm a chemist and make more in six months at my job than I do in a year of surrogacy. Oh well. To each his own. I am prepared for his doom and gloom this time. If he gets snotty and says I'll die at any moment, I will tell him that that's fine, my funeral is fully planned and I have scads of life insurance for my family and my IFs.
