A tentative plan is in place for Book 2 of this surrogacy story.
I received the legal paperwork from the clinic a couple of days ago. When all is signed, I have a blood test on the second day of my next period to see if my hCG level from the LT is back to normal, non-pregnant state.
We are doing another unmedicated FET cycle (frozen embryo transfer), which means that I have several blood tests beginning at day 8 of my period to check on my progesterone and estrogen levels to see when ovulation might happen, followed by one Ovidrel shot (essentially high level hCG injection which induces ovulation in 36 hours). Five days after that, transfer.
In other news, I have submitted my last MTeach assignment, obtained an interim casual number, and had two days of relief teaching last week. Also, I made it to the last round of DFAT grad recruitment program, and I have my interview on 28 July - provided I fill in the 50-page security clearance form, and manage to find paper evidence of just about everything that happened in my life in the last 10 years... Also have an approximate date of Damien's return home, 24 or 25 July - still haven't heard about postings, maybe next week. So all up, yay!
