Welcome,welcome! This is by far my favorite time of the month!

What is happening here:

October 28th: First possible egg retrieval for our egg donor
Wait for PGD results to come back. We are doing PGD to avoid testing once pregnant.
November 2nd: First possible transfer date for our amazing surrogate and single superstar embryo!

Basically, just in a holding pattern and waiting for all those medications to kick in. As I said in my last post I am pretty much shut off emotionally from the whole process, and I am really okay with that. This baby making has been many, many years in the making and I see no reason to get my hopes up now.

If you want to read story of how we got to this point it lives here!

Thank you for stopping by. I promise to get a better post up soon.

Happy ICLW. I don't think that anyone who has been on this IF journey would not understand the feeling of being shut off emotionally from a cycle - sometimes it is hard to feel positive and excited when you have had so many knock downs. I am off to Thailand for a donor egg cycle and am trying not to think about the cycle - the thought of going to such huge lengths and it not working - well, it is too much for me to think about.

All the best with your journey!!

Wow, congratulations on your upcoming e/r and e/t!

I can understand not wanting to get your hopes, but I really hope you have reason to let go of all that and celebrate VERY soon.

Best Wishes.

Awesome Jaymee!!! YAY. I was so happy when I read this post. It's coming up so soon. The waiting is so hard, I know. But I have everything crossed for you and am so hoping it turns out wonderfully.

So you guys are transfering 1? Just wondering if I was reading that right. :)

Congrats for having possible dates girl!!!

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. It's kind of nice/not good to know that 9 adoptions aren't that big of a deal in the social worker world. lol I think our adoption worker has foster cases, too, since our branch of Lutheran is so short staffed. I'm not sure.

Good luck on your surrogate adventure!
