Hello,

 

I'm new here (and this is my first post).  My husband and I are hoping to have a baby through a donated embryo and surrogate.  After a long search, we found a surrogate and she had her transfer this month.  We don't know the results yet, but we are keeping our fingers crossed!!! :)

Started Researching Surrogacy: August 2016

Found Embryos: November 2016

Matched with Surrogate: April 2017, all adoption put on hold (never matched with a child)

Surrogate's First Transfer: July 2017 (one FET) - BFP, but m/c or chemical (unsure, since second beta rose more than 60%, but third beta dropped)

Surrogate's  Second Transfer: October 2017 (one FET) - BFN

Surrogate's Third Transfer: December 2017 (double transfer) - BFN

 

Moving on to donor eggs...

 

New donor embryos available!!! Trying with them

 

Surrogate's Fourth Transfer:  February 2018 - was to be a double transfer, but one did not survive thawing, so single transfer; First beta - 685!!!!!; Beta #2 - 1594!!!  eusa_dance.gif yahoo.gif

First ultrasound (at 7 weeks, 2 days): Heart rate of 154 bpm, measuring slightly behind (just under 7 weeks)

Second ultrasound (9 weeks, 1 day):  Heart rate of 170 bpm, measuring small (again) at a little under 9 weeks.  Basically, it is growing at a good pace, just small - UPDATE:  heart rate is 175 bpm according to an email from the clinic!

Welcome Writegal. Hope you find great support here. 

I`m just starting down the path of surrogacy. May I ask how or where you found your surrogate?

Hi Elle22,

We used a consultancy.  We were lucky to be matched fairly quickly.  Message me if you want to discuss this privately.

Thanks!
