10/28/09

The date of our pregnancy test.

One week from Wednesday, 11 days, 12 nights.

We transferred 4 Grade A embryos to our surrogate today. Steve is convinced this is 'our time'. I'm not sure what to think. I know we've 'stacked the deck' - we have used a proven egg donor who is 22 years old and we have a surrogate with the most positive aura I could imagine. We transferred 4 Grade A's! Odds are very much in our favor, but the thing with odds is that there are no perfect odds...

Truth be told, I am feeling pretty positive about the outcome myself. The reality is this: you worry about getting a positive, then you worry about the hCG blood test rising, then you worry about getting to 12 weeks, then you worry about the triple marker, then you worry about.....

And you worry when you send them off to college. We've embarked on a lifetime of worries and that's the reality. My mother called me this morning to make sure I made it to Washington DC safely - yes, another biz trip. She was, yes, worried. I am, yes, 41. Whether we are pregnant this round or the next or the time after that, the worries will never stop - they've only begun. So, I will vow to stay off Dr Google, focus on productive activities and let nature have her way.

Until 10/28...happy thoughts.

Just the best. We have been to San Diego and L.A. a few weeks ago but we thought this would have been the worst moment for you guys to visit you and bother you with our stuff. It is great to read that you are moving on. Just our best wishes from Germany. Axel

THANK YOU ALL! Our surrogate's blood test is happening at 6pm Delhi time today - about 1 1/2 hours from now. So, the results will not be available until tomorrow morning. Dr S has promised to phone me as soon as she gets the results - which will probably be around 9pm tonight, our time - about 16 hours from now. Tick, tock. LOL.
