I feel like we've been waiting so long to post this result, and we know it's early, but we are pregnant! This Sunday it will be about five weeks every day is super important and makes this all more viable. We are extremely thankful to our willing surrogate, and for the speed at which this has happened, after only TWO tries. I still am scratching my head a bit and can't believe we are at this point...when it was just a little over a month ago that we were trying to figure it all out.

All I can say is that this at-home turkey baster method worked and for now we are heading down the road we've wished to be on for some time now. I know it's going to be a whole new set of worries -- getting through the first trimester (something to really look forward to around Christmas time!), and then the next six months after, and the delivery, the emotions, it's all going to be something we'll never forget and something to (hopefully) ponder in coming entries. For now, though, we can say it, we're PREGNANT!!!...and loving every minute of it so far. Really hoping this all sticks.

Thanks to all for their support and encouragement. This blog experience has been so helpful. :-) THANK YOU THANK YOU...

1 day late

well "we" are one day late and that's a good sign, we think...especially since she's usually, as she said herself, "like clockwork." So we'll probably test some time this week, if her period hasn't arrived.

Or maybe we'll just test today!! ;-)

Our surrogate mentioned that she was getting a little anxious and used one of the digital tests a few days ago and she actually peed too much on the stick and it said "ERROR", and when she looked up "error" in the pamphlet it said "call this 800 number"...we all laughed because I'm not sure a customer service person 2500 miles away is going to know if she was pregnant or not. Unless it was the Fortune Teller brand of early pregnancy tests. Deep breath. More news to time.
