I have never been more excited, but I finally started my period two days ago and I have an appointment for Tuesday for the SSG exam. This is it, this is it, this is the final home stretch to being cleared. My emotions are all over the place, I am calm from the outside but on the inside I am having swings from excitement to nervousness. I am not nervous about my decision to be a Gestational Carrier, but rather my ability to carry another child given my age and nearly 9 years since being pregnant. What an odd place emotionally to be in, makes me think about the Intended Parents and all the testing and prodding they have had and emotional ups and downs.
I met up with my bestie for coffee today, and after listening to what was new in her life I sprung the news on her. She wasn’t surprised, but rather excited and emotional and extremely happy for me. After keeping this so close to the chest, it was nice to finally share the news with someone close to me.
