some news

January 31, 2012

We got some news. Our donor developed a cyst and once that is treated the oocyte stimulation can begin. Good fun for her :(

Quick Review of our Timeline so far:
April 2011---Decided to pursue surrogacy aggressively
May 2011--selected clinic in India and flew there for "donation"
July 2011--First retrieval and transfer. Negative.
September 2011--Second transfer (frozen embrys). Negative.
November 2011--Second retrieval/Third transfer (fresh). Negative
January 2012--Second Trip to India for donation when I decided my previous deposit was no good because I was going insane.
Feb 2012--Expected Third retrieval/Fourth transfer. Two Surrogates this time.

More details on process later but I know it always helps to see process laid out.


  1. Thanks for the nice comment on our blog and good luck with everything. This can be a tough road for some but now that we are where we are, everything we've done to get to this point really just melts away. The most important thing is to never give up. I know, I know, that's what everyone tells you, but it 's TRUE. Because everyone told us that and all I wanted to do was give them the middle finger when we had failed attempt after failed attempt. So give it your best shot, balls to the wall (sorry so graphic) and come out with your guns ablazing...

    OK, enough cliches. GOOD LUCK.

    1. We are definitely in it for the long haul. Thanks for the support and I love a good cliche!

  2. Many thanks for making the effort to discuss this, I feel strongly about this and love learning a great deal more on this matter. If feasible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your weblog with a great deal more info? It's extremely helpful for me.
