Back to back 2WW..really?

An update...we had arranged for two surrogates in our last transfer, however a last minute issue with one surrogate meant only one 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


  1. Fabulous news re:SM1 and hopefully more to come with SM2 !!

    There have definitely been other IPs with betas of a lower value than yours who have gone onto baby pick up or are pregnant now. I went back and checked 2 I could clearly recall and they were both around 95 but there are definitely others, so 129 is awesome !!

    Best wishes for your second 2ww and your first scan for SM1 !!
    Cheering squad in action : )

  2. Agreed, 129 is awesome! Best with your second 2ww.

  3. Fab news on surro number 1, fingers and toes crossed on surro number 2, exciting times ahead, lots of baby dust ur way x

  4. Congratulations for Surro number 1 and we are crossing our fingers for Surro number 2! xxxxx I agree with the others 129 is a really good number!! Our first transfer occurred Wednesday so here is hoping we meet up next year!!

  5. Congratulations - your pregnant, so delighted for you. Our beta was only 74 and we got Hari so yes 129 is fab.

  6. 129 is just perfect!!! Been thinking of you! xoxoxo

  8. Our 2nd surrogate beta was only 64 and we ended up with Oliver.... so definitely a good number :)
