Chapter 3 (+)


Today was the day of our pregnancy test, but given that today is Republic Day in India, a national holiday, the lab was closed.  Dr S had emailed with me yesterday that she could not perform the blood test until Wed, rather than today, Tues.  I was so bummed, so she said that she would do a urine test today.  She just phoned (around 5am LA time) and said 'Good News - Strong Positive'!  YAY!  The blood test results with the actual beta level will be available this time tomorrow morning.

We are now 3 for 3 - 3 attempts, 3 pregnancies.  Interesting statistics in this crazy ride called surrogacy.  Now, here's praying that the third one is THE ONE!  We are very excited, but with two miscarriages under our belt, cautious at best.

Thanks everyone for all the emails and comments - means so much to have the support of so many.  Dr S is having a really strong 'run' right now with positives!  We are equally happy for her and her growing clientele of which she is so very deserving.  She is our hero.

More tomorrow...
