Estrace and ASSets

So I've been living on little sleep and going back and forth to the city but, all for the cause.
I've met with my lawyer and have signed the contracts. So now the journey really begins. Was at the clinic yesterday as it was my day two with AF. They took my bloods and did the extra fun kind of u/s if you know what I mean...and I'm sure you all do. Then had a quick meet with the RE and I am now taking estrace...lots of it. H and I then spent part of the day shopping and eating. I have a hard time shopping for pants because I'm short and I have a nice ROUND butt. I like to think of my butt as an ASSet lol. Whenever I buy pants they always fit my waist fine but by the time they curve around my ass there seems to be this leftover gap of material. I've always joked my whole life on how I'm a white girl with a "black"ass I don't mean this in a prejudicial way at all. But all my coloured friends know what I mean about the gap in the pants above our butts. Its hard to look smashing in an outfit when the legs are 5 inches too long and the top of the butt gathers in the back. I mean it if you stand behind me you could probably see right down my pants with the gap that's there. I also bought a couple of new bras which I really needed. When I finally got home I took the time to read the side effects on the estrace and they said Boobs May Get Bigger....BIGGER? GULP. Trust me my boobs are big enough I'm talking 40D how much bigger can they get? Bras are expensive when your my size. They never seem to have sales on bras once you cross the 36C line. I don't know how I'll cover the girls if they get bigger. Already I don't have the option on buying bras in the nice lingerie shops cause they never have my size and if they do they have to make a big production over going into the back storage room for each and every bra I may want to try on, and really who needs that kind of hassle. You know before I had my kids I was a nice small 34A and at times I wished my boobs were a little bit bigger, ever since having my kids and breast feeding I've been stuck at a 40D and I wish my boobs were a little bit smaller. Even when I loose weight I can't seem to loose my boobs. Anyways that's my rant, thanks for reading. So on the surrogacy front things are moving along smoothly. I go back to the Dr's on the 27th and then he says implant will be anywhere from 1-4 days after that. I'm so excited about the whole process (except maybe the boobs bigger part). Will keep you all updated.


  1. Hey, you know what you said yesterday about us being of similar mind!!! lol, nice post you...I am so grateful for you and all we've gotten through this week.
    G. signed today on the way to work and I think feels alittle less out of the loop...
    I can't wait for what is to follow!!!!!
    BTW, you def have good ASSets...And I will find you the cadilac of bras for when the hormones kick in, promise (it's in the contract I think!!!)
    ;) xoxoxLove and Peace.

  2. Wow I didn't know that was a side effect of Estrace...sure didn't work on me!! I wouldn't worry about it too much. Things are moving right along for you both and I wish you all the best with the cycle. GL!!

  3. Hi . . . I found your blog (and H's) through some complicated trail that even I can't follow anymore. Anyway - just wanted to share with you the wonder that is Lane Bryant Right Fit pants. I am also blessed with some fabulous ASSets and those are the only pants that fit me exactly right!

    Good luck on your journey.

  4. Congrats on completing the contract phase! Fingers crossed for a great lining and wonderful transfer!


  5. Estrace causes bigger boobs???? Ummmm, not fair that didn't happen to me. Funny how some of us would like some of those side effects while others find it not so good. I do have and know what you mean by the ASSets though...though I would like a little less ASSet in my back side and a little more on top.

    Good luck on the cycle...estrace has way better side effects that big on!

  6. My boobs got bigger after having my son too. They were always a 36B/C and now I am a 38D. Too funny! Aren't they usually supposed to get smaller after having kids?!? LOL!

  7. Hey there - I know you mentioned that transfer would be around now so I wanted to pop by and wish you the very best. GL!!
