Hello again!

Hey Everyone!

Life has been pretty crazy this last month that I haven't had the chance to write much. Nothing new on the foster update except that we go to our orientation on the 25th of this month. As for the other side of my life, it has been getting close to recital at the dance studio so we have been doing costume checks, private lesson, makeup lessons ect. I started watching my newest nephew during the day! All I can say he is super sweet and cuddly and it makes me yearn for my own little one even more. As for right now my life is pretty darn good! I have many more adventures to come and I will keep you all posted :)

A crazy week!

Oh boy! What a week we have had. Found out Jen has a cyst on her ovary (very common) which means we have to put our transfer off a month, had to make a really big decision, had our house broken into and to top it off had to clean up my nephew who got sick everywhere! What can I say? I love every bit of my crazy little life ;).

Okay, here's the really big decision we had to make, we have decided to put our transfer off for more than one month. The summer seems to be a busy schedule for everyone with all the vacations and fun we have which makes it really hard to make the drive to Seattle all the time for appointments and the transfer. When we transfer the embryos, we have no idea what day it will be until the last minute. We want to be fair to everyone, we are putting our transfer off until August and discuss it again then. Emotionally I am excited for a break too!

My husband and I have also been looking into foster to adopt. We will attend an orientation in June. I'm very excited! We will be posting our foster to adopt journey here too. If anyone has any insight on foster to adopt I'd love to hear from you! We have a long journey ahead of us but I am ready for "motherhood".

Here we go again!

We are officially onto the next (and last) cycle! We are now waiting for the clinic to call to schedule an early cycle ultrasound to make sure everything looks good. Nothing exciting happens for a few more weeks but we have reached the beginning again :)

I feel as if my head is spinning in many different directions right now. I'm excited to be doing it all over again but also nervous because I know this will be our final try to become parents via surrogacy. Please be thinking positive thoughts with me as we try again on this crazy journey.

Stay tuned!!!

nothing exciting yet ;)

Hey everyone!
Just a quick little update so I don't keep you guys hanging too long, Jen got her period last week so that's good! Now we wait until next month when she gets it again and we can go off of that for the transfer. Yay!! In the meantime I get to enjoy my new little nephew that was born last week. So cute and cuddly. I also had my first post-cancer check up and everything looked good but we still have to wait for the results to come back. Hang with us for some exciting action coming soon! Hopefully!

On to the next round!

As you know we had our phone consult to discuss the next transfer. Everything is ready to go! Since we've done this before, I felt as it was much easier to pick our embryos. Out of the six choices we had, we decided to go with AE166. Now that that the embryos are picked we wait for Jen to start her cycle again and go with a "very little med" cycle which should put us down for an early to mid May transfer with two embryos again!!!  We are excited to do it again but I think we may take this cycle with a more cautious attitude.

Now I will leave you an adorable picture of the cutest kids ever! I'm so lucky to have such an awesome job taking care of these cuties. Jennifer does produce some pretty wonderful kiddos (but I'm sure they take after their really cool auntie :p)!

Hey there!

So Jennifer is slacking again ;) she was supposed to update you all on everything. That's ok, I have her back! So yesterday Jennifer went in for an ultrasound to determine if she has successfully passed all of the pregnancy. Everything looked good and nothing was left and her blood work was back at 0. Jen is doing good and said it wasn't as bad as she had thought is was going to be.

So what happens next you ask? Well it just so happens that we have a phone meeting tomorrow morning to discuss the next cycle. We already know that we will be doing donated embryos and hopefully another natural cycle. Not too sure about the time line yet but I guess we will be finding out tomorrow! I will update sometime tomorrow to let you all know the details :) Hopefully we still have some readers out there!

Well the ultrasound today went as expected and the pregnancy is not viable. The sack did not show anymore growth. Jennifer will let it pass naturally. We were disappointed but not surprised since we had a feeling it wasn't going to go our way this time. We do plan on doing it again with just donor embryos as soon as we get the green light so please hang with us to soon read up on our next adventure that will hopefully turn out to be our final and successful time with all of this craziness! Hey, we like to look on the bright side and say our life is never boring ;) Thank you for all of your support. We love our readers!
