So today I went in for the ultrasound, mock transfer, blood draw, and estrodial check. I also got to meet the doctor. He was amazing and a joy. That's a big deal coming from me, as I am usually anti-male vagina doctors. He's an endocrinologist though, so maybe that's the difference!?!
As for the tests, everything looks great. In fact, the doctor said that I am a perfect candidate for the process! When I get home I will take off the FOUR estrogen patches I have on, replace them with two new ones and take my first Provera. I really won't know much more schedule wise until I start my period after the Provera is gone. We're kinda looking towards the end of next month to early January from what I can tell. How EXCITING!
I wrote an email to the intended mother [IM from now on, IP for intended parents, and IF for intended father (this works so much better than initials)] and let her know how it went. She wrote back a lovely email and suggested that we swap family photo's. One of them for my daughter's and one of us for their son, so he can see his sibling's "tummy mommy." I think that is such a sweet term and apparently it is often used in adoption situations.
Well, I believe that is it for now. Please feel free to write comments with your thoughts, feelings, and questions and I will try to respond quickly! All my love.
