So, back to me. I honestly despise AF (also affectionately referred to as Aunt Flo) and would rather not have a period again in my life. However, when it signifies the start of something beautiful, a journey and cycle to create a human life ~ it can truly put a smile on my face! So here I am, walking around with cramps that buckle me over, a small headache and bloating... but secretly, on the inside, I am excited for the next two months and all that this signifies!! The huge smile on my face is surely indicative of great secrets and lots of success in our future!!
On one of the support groups I belong to I posted the following:
We interrupt this regularly scheduled program to bring you a quick update on rarejule....
AF came a visiting today, she emailed the clinic, and starts BCP's on Sunday! Hanne is going in this week for blood work to verify ovulation calendar. Slow and steady...
Now, back to your regularly scheduled program!
to which a male friend writes:
My friends think I am insane for getting excited about you pre-pregnoids getting your period. But I am! LOL!
Gotta love it!!
So for those of you reading along and learning about surrogacy, you'll have lots of interesting and new acronyms and things to share with your friends soon! Are you keeping track?
