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!!!
Advised Not to Get Pregnant: Circa 1994 or 1995 (I was FIFTEEN!!!)
Married: August 2010
Started Adoption Process: January 2013
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!!!
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!
