The HPTs...

OK, so I spared all of you the previous test results because there were times it was like trying to see Jesus in a tortilla with the blue and pink dye tests but these are conclusive, especially the "YES+" result. There's something comforting about seeing that YES and + in the same line because I have a really hard time reading those dye tests (I'm a visual learner....like "spell it out for me please")... Loving that our surro is obsessed with testing and we wake up to a fresh photo of the result. Thank you for being so THOROUGH!

...Sticky sticky sticky!!!

...deep breath...

...we can do this...

I'm finding it hard to believe that I'll make it until Feburary but I think this is the hardest part, waiting for something viable (someone agree with me, please).

Well here they are...


14 dpo (tough to see here but it's there I promise...) :-)

I couldn't help it...

One of the balls finally dropped.  The latest update is that we changed surrogates. We feel it was the best route to choose considering the negatives we had been getting after multiple tries with our previous candidate.  And well, here we are again!  Yes, it's EARLY.  But what I can say RIGHT NOW is that we have a positive HPT and our surro will keep testing daily to make sure it's moving in the right direction. Think good thoughts all.

Multiple Balls in the Air

We so so appreciate everyone's heartfelt advice and encouragement. There are so many people out there in so many different stages of this process -- and it's so good to know that we are all not alone as we navigate surrogacy, parenthood, adoption, imagining life with or without a child. For what it's worth we are still moving forward. No giving up here. No quitting. Just a pause in all the noise of this process. Let's just say we have multiple balls in the air and one of them we're hoping to drop...or two. I'll leave y'all with that. Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there.
