My "Perfect" uterus

     Today we had the SIS (AKA Sonohysterogram or Saline Ultrasound) at ORM. It was a odd experience to say the least.
     The actual procedure did not last long at all they put a catheter through my cervix and filled my uterus with saline while using a internal ultrasound to make sure that there was nothing abnormal in my uterus.
     Everything went as planned and I was told I have a "Perfect Uterus"
     I do have to go back next week for two more tests plus I have to make an appointment to get my blood work done, and the husband and I still have to do our Psych Evaluations.

     All of that should be done within the next week or so though! We are moving forward at full speed! Lots of updates to come!

Testing moving forward

     I think anyone who has been reading this blog has realized that Surrogacy such a "hurry up and wait" process. I have turned in my paper work multiple times (3rd time was the charm), I called doctor offices multiple times to make sure they actually sent my medical records, spent more time on the phone with insurance companies than anyone ever should have to. BUT it is finally time to move forward!

    We have been working on contract points and this month I will FINALLY get my testing done! This means if we get contracts done soon like expected we could start medication for the transfer in JULY! I have to say I am so excited that this is happening!

   Who knew I would be excited to give myself shots.

I may or may not be giveaway addict...

     When planning our wedding I got a little caught up in giveaways. I have won more giveaways than I can count. I have gotten everything from A wedding dress, and invitations, to a $195.00 Diaper bag, to playdough and prenatal vitamins.
      I get asked all the time how do you win so many giveaways. The answer is pretty simple I enter a LOT of them. It is really a numbers game I enter so many that I am bound to win something. Even when the odds are stacked against you just remember someone has to win it. How many do I enter? Well I try to enter a minimum of 10 a day. I actually entered two four different ones while writing this post. What can I say I am easily distracted...
     I enter just about everyone I come across. If I can't use it I know that one of my friends or family members will be able to!

    Now let me tell you how you can giveaway! Well first off search on twitter I do (insert keyword here) giveaway. And a HUGE list (sometimes) will show up. Click on the link and follow the instructions of the giveaway! Then wait and see if you won... Easy as that!

     Would you be interested in me hosting giveaways on my blog? I have came across the opportunity to team up and promote some giveaways! Would anyone be interested in me doing that?

Chalk it up

     One of our favorite things do is draw with chalk. I buy so much chalk every summer I should probably try out some of those "make your own chalk" pins on pinterest.

AND I got to help Emma practicing writing her name! 
She is getting a lot better.

     We have been trying to find many cheap or free activities to do with the girls. We wish we could go and play today but they sprayed for weeds that means no playing outside for us today...

And we ride....

      One of the things we have been trying to do as a family is become more active. A easy way to do that is chase the girls as they ride bikes. This was our first bike ride of the "season" we have had a extra kid with us most days but not a extra bike so we haven't been able to do bike rides. Well yesterday we didn't have an extra so we took advantage of that and rode bikes!

This was my view for most of the ride Ellie is a much faster bike rider than Emma.

     I have seen LOTS of children riding bikes without helmets and it drives me insane PLEASE have your child wear a helmet for their safety!

Pizza Time!

     My girls all time favorite dinner is pizza. No if ands or buts if you ask them what they want for dinner 9 times out of 10 they will say Pizza. Tonight was a pizza night! The only thing they like better than eating pizza is making their own pizza and tonight they got to! 

      They were so proud of their Pizzas and they actually ate every last bite, and part of my salad.
