An update...we had arranged for two surrogates in our last transfer, however a last minute issue with one surrogate meant only one transfer....so at this point we started our 2WW with one surrogate..but the lovely Dr. swung into gear and quickly arranged another surrogate for us, and while we were on our 2WW we had another surrogate being prepped for a transfer. This second transfer successfully occurred yesterday.
So how did we go with surrogate no. 1? Well, we have a beta of 129.49. I have been going through all of your old posts trying to find someone that has a baby on the way that had a beta of that value but to no avail! Seems a bit low..
This has turned into a step by step recipe for success and at this stage the only emotion that has entered the equation is hope...
Step 1 - choose donor...check
Step 2 - wait for prep and pick up, get egg pick up results...check
Step 3 - choose surrogates ...check
This is boring for all you IPs as I know, you know these steps (unfortunately) SO WELL!
Jumping to....Step 6 - pregnancy test positive?...check
Now the wait for step 7 the scan and of course following that the remaining 8 steps to a successful birth!
However I am still only on step 6 for surrogate no. 2
Congratulations to all those on steps 6 to 14! It's very reassurring for us ips on 1 to 5, to see someone half way or almost to the top of that mountain (gosh the metaphors this morning!)
Have a great week all
