Support group dinner

Before I talk about the dinner, I'll do a quick update.
My IM's u/s yesterday went well, she said that she had more follicles than expected and was very happy about that! If you want to know what I'm talking about when I say "follicles" THIS WEBSITE will be very helpful. I talked to the nurse at the RE's office and she was optimistic as well, she even said that we might have the transfer sooner! That's cool, but I won't bank on anything. You know how this process is a roller coaster! I'm just glad everything seems to be going's kind of too good to be true!

So, on to dinner...

I had a nice dinner last night with a few girls that are with the same agency as me. The director of the agency and a "newly interviewed" potential surrogate was there as well. It was a little awkward at first because we (surrogates) had never met each other before, but that didn't last long.
It was also cool because we were able to bring our husbands along! I wish they would have been able to talk a little more about the husband's perspective on surrogacy, but the director kind of took over most of the conversations, which was a little annoying, but whatever.
Anyway, we went to Del Frisco's in Ft. Worth and it was gooooood! They have a few more locations in other states as well, you should check it out! (That is if you have a few hundred bucks to shell out!) Lol. But seriously, for a "special" occasion, I'd say it's worth it. I'm not a big steak eater, but man, that steak was good! And the sides were the best part!! All I have to say is their jalapeno-bacon mac 'n cheese and au gratin potatoes should be a sin!!
All-in-all, it was a pretty good time and I'm glad Kevin & I went!

Here's all of us! It's a little fuzzy b/c it was dim lighting.
Seriously....only 10 days until possible transfer??!! O.M.G.! :-)
