2nd Beta!

We have just got the report of our surrogates 2nd B-hcg test and at 14 days of gestation by ET our beta is 1029, more then doubled in 2 days and things are looking good.

On our last cycle when we lost our baby at 12 weeks our 2nd beta was only 24 and did not double, To have a great number like 1029 makes us feel so good.

Next beta in a few days!

The Numbers Are In!

2:30 am this morning we got an email that said “ Your surrogate has tested positive for pregnancy, The B-hcg levels are good at 419”

I say it again 419, Michael and I are overjoyed, Yes Yes Yes Yes !!! We are pregnant!

I know its very early and there is a long way to go but for now we are more then happy.

Thank you all for your comments and support, it really means a great deal.

Thanks to our lovely surrogate and egg donor, without them none of this would be possible.

Not long to go now!!!!

The B-hcg test will be done tomorrow and we will get the results on Tuesday by 2pm Indian time.

So in just over 48 hours we will know if we are pregnant or not!

We are both calm at the moment and feeling positive.

I (Will) keep looking at the photos of our surrogate, egg donor and embryos and talking to them (I must be going mad).

Fingers crossed for a good result.

Good thoughts to our lovely surrogate.

8 days to go!!!!

Our 2ww ends on a Sunday our clinic don’t do B-hcg tests on Sundays so it will be done Monday and we get the result a week Tuesday!

I guess at the moment I am ‘comfortably numb’ I am wary of getting too excited really just protecting myself for the possibility of a negative. I am trying to be positive and putting good vibes out there in the hope of this having any affect on the outcome. Every now and then I do think what if (either good or bad) but quickly push those thoughts to the back of my mind.

We had a twenty-first birthday party here yesterday for our eldest nephew, it was just a family affair but was a great time for all my (Michael’s) family to be together. It is amazing to think of him being 21 my eldest sister is 8 years older than me and had him at 21 and I was 13 so he was a big part of my teenage years. Really is a reminder of how quickly time flies. That was a great distraction but throughout I could not help thinking I would love to have a celebration like this for ‘our’ child.

We have tickets next weekend to see the Merchant’s of Bollywood, an attempt for us to be closer to India and also a well timed distraction, we bought the tickets a month or two ago but it has timed perfectly with awaiting news.

We are keeping anything anatomically possible crossed and trying to accept what will be will be, but hoping this will be our time!!!!

Loads of positive thoughts of health and happiness to our Surrogate!!!!

5 Grade A embryos have been transferred into our surrogate today and the 2ww begins!

Egg retrieval was on Sunday, we egg shared so we only got 11 eggs. 9 of them fertilised and turned into embryos, 5 grade A, 3 grade B and 1 Grade C, because we transferred all the grade A embryos there is none left for freezing, Talk about all your eggs in one basket(surrogate) but we are ok with that.

All we can do now is hope for the best and stay positive.

Thank you all for your comments and words of wisdom over the last few posts, it means so much to know we are not going through this alone, all of your support means a great deal.

For now we are happy with our progress and things are looking good.
