2003 - 2 miscarriages, 2nd MC I was at 21 weeks
2004 - 2 miscarriages
2005 - 1 miscarriage2005 - after receiving no answers as to why I kept having miscarriages (all my tests were normal) I had a partial hysterectomy to repair the prolapses
2007 - Divorced
2011 - my new spouse has no children of his own, we met with Genesis to start the surrogacy process. Found out when we met our RE that my ex husband had a chromosome deficiency and this was the reason for the miscarriages.
2013 - we have a great GS and are ready to start the process
DH and I both are 43
July 8/13 - I started BCP, my GS started Synarel
July18/13 - My GS starts Estrace
July 30/113 - I started Menopur and Bravelle injections
Aug 6/13 - Follicles growing nicely, ER date changed to Aug 10th or 11th.
Aug 11/13 - retrieved 7 eggs, procedure went well
Aug 12/13 - 6 eggs fertilized
Aug 14/13 - transferred 3 - day 3 embryos into my GS. Fingers crossed!!
Aug 22/13 - HPT BFP!!!
Aug 27/13 - Beta 476 SO HAPPY!!!!<p>

Sept 12/13 -U/S 6 weeks 2 days. Everything is perfect. 1 little bean in there due to join our family May 5/14.
Sept 26/13 -U/S showed the babe stopped growing about a week ago, no heart beat found
Sept 29/13 - Miscarriage
Cycle # 2
Dec 31/13 - GS started BCP
Jan 1/14 - I started BCP, my GS started Synarel
Jan 9/14 - GS started Estrace
Jan 16/14 - GS had her lining checked. It's 10.5 mm. I stop BCP
Jan 21/14 - Start Menopur and Bravelle
Feb/14 - transferred 4 - 2 days embryos.
Cycle # 3 Here we go again!!! Fingers crossed!
May 12/14 I started BCP, my GS started Synarel
May 29/14 - GS lining is over 8 mm, I stop BCP
Jun 3/14 - I start injections.
This cycle ended up being a FET due to my GS having some breakthrough bleeding prior to transfer. It was a blessing in disguise. On day 5 we had 2 perfect embryos and 2 not so good. They told us they would freeze them on day 6. On day 6 they had all arrested. . On to doing an FET with our one and only frozen embryo.
August 26/14 - Transferred a 6 day embryo
September 5/14 - very faint BFP on HPT. Fingers crossed this one works out!
Oct 10/14 - U/S shows 1 8w5d fetus!!! due date is May 17/15.

Best guidance is to meet with a fertility specialist to review your specific situation and go from there.
