Today (well, I guess since it's 1:30 in the morning it was technically yesterday) I got Rachel an OPK, some Vitamin B6, Robitussin (to thin the cervical mucus) some of my leftover folic acid and low-dose aspirin (to prevent clots in the endometrial lining)... aaaand a scented candle! In a cute little paper bag. :)
Because, ya know, nothing says "here's hoping you get knocked up" like random bottles of pills, things to pee on and something to light on fire.
I can't just get her randome awkward crap. Like my last "present"? Two boxes of HPT's... and a cutesy balloon. I wonder what it's gonna be next time?
It probably seems stupid or lame, but I just want to express my absolute astonishment and love for her. That anyone, especially someone I have known so for such a short time, would be willing to try to do such an amazing, wonderful thing for Scott and me. She is an answer to so many, countless prayers.
And I dunno... I think this month is going to work. Strangely enough ALL of the surrogacy blogs I have read, the first time didn't work but the second try did. And there is something about THIS month... being the due date for my lost baby. And putting the due date in December... which is Scott's birthday. (He hates it, because it gets forgotten a lot because of the Holidays- but come on, wouldn't it be the best Christmas present ever???) It just seems like something is going to work. Has to work.
And when it does, there shall be much celebration.
