  1. 2nd transfer

    Hi everyone, How are you all doing? Hope you will be fine. Wanted to update that our GC is coming to the clinic today and will be doing an ultrasound and maybe a blood work, (this we are not sure yet), and we got her transfer calendar. If everything looks good today, we will go on with it and our second transfer will be on August, 31st. Regarding the next embryo, we have finally decided to transfer only one, we had a very good talk wit our DR and she encouraged us to go on with the plan so, we have planned to transfer 1 5dBB, this is not expanded, as it was that one on first attempt, but our DR says we have the same percentage than the first time, (about 65% pregnancy). So that are our exciting updates, we are so so excited and nervous to try it next but keeping as calm and taking it easy as much as possible. Does anyone know if there's something concerning about the fact that this embryo is nos "expanded"? Our doctor told us not to worry about and we need to trust her but we would be very thanked if someone could tell us their experience or knowledge about this. Many thanks and fingers crossed!! d&j
  2. 2nd transfer

    Thank you so much. we have been told by our local agency here and by their broker. It looks that for international IP’s is no longer possible to set up a policy for the newborn because all the companies ask for a price of residence and that’s not possible of course for us. We have submitted that two options to our agency and they already know about Artrisk, so we will wait for hopefully good news because we just want to have the possibility of purchasing a good one in case of necessity. Let’s wait what happens to that and enjoy seeing our little baby’s pictures, we loooove her. Of course, our GC is the best in the world ahahah she is adorable. You all are! Making our dreams come true and real. Big hugs d&j
  3. 2nd transfer

    Hello to everyone How are you all doing? Hope your processes are being good. We wanted to update that we had our 20th week US last week and everything went great! We had a very nice pictures of our little baby girl and was so exciting!. We are really thanked also to our GC who sent them to us and recorded her heartbeat, was amazing to hear her again. Tomorrow we are reaching 22 week and our journey is going very quick, we are so happy for that. If everything goes as planned, our GC will have an induction on May, 12th so this will be one week prior to due date. We already booked our flights tickets and the apartment where to stay there so, exciting update!! What it made us a little sad is the fact that we were told that from 2018 it is not possible to enroll any health coverage for newborn if you aren’t living in the USA, so we just don’t know how we will manage that because we are not from USA. Hope everything goes fine and she gets it good and we just have to negotiate a little bit with the hospital financial service. Any advice for us regarding this? Big hugs to everyone d&j
  4. beachalice update

    Thank you! We are doing fine, today we are 18W3D and everything is looking good, the belly is starting bumping up but our GC is not gaining so much weight, (it looks all of her pregnancies have been like that so we are not concerned at all), but would love to see if someone else has had that. In fact she is still with morning sickness, nausea and so on so that’s why she is not gaining so much weight. We have our mid pregnancy US on January, 4th and we are so excited about that, fingers crossed everything goes fine. We had PGS to the embryos so hopefully everything will be good. What about you all? How are your process going? Hugs d&j

  6. 14th weeks update

    Hi to everyone! How is everybody doing? Hope all your process will be good and going ahead. We wanted to update how our process is going. This week we reached 14th week and our GC is feeling still a little bit sick and she is having some cravings ahaha, and she also started feeling our little baby inside, so exciting. She told us her belly is sometimes there but sometimes she doesn’t see it so maybe this will appear firmly soon. She is definitely so loving. Her first OB appt was 2 weeks ago, when she was 12w+5d and went great, they didn’t do her any US nor blood test but she heard the heartbeat of the little girl and sent it to us, simply amazing ahahaha Everything went simply fine and she has her next appt on December 7th, so we are looking forward to her next appt. She will be then 16w+5d. Even lots of people has told us everything looks normal, we are a little bit worried because we expected to have had an US in her first visit, our GC of course told that looks normal as she has been under lot of controls during the fertility clinic time. We did PGS to all embryos and are so happy because we see our GC is feeling quite good but, as we have not idea of that, due this is our first process. We just wanted to hear about some other people who could explain if that’s is normal or how their experience is going. Sorry for the extension of the text. hugs d&j
  7. 14th weeks update

    Thank you so much for your comments! Hope everything will be fine as we have our next appt on Thursday. This will be our 16w+5d and our GC is feeling out little baby girl a lot and her belly is starting to grow a little up. Fingers crossed and hoping for a good update by then. D&J
  8. D&J update

    Thank you for your comments. Ww spoke yesterday to our GC and told us the bleeding had stopped and the pain was sore but said normal, so we are so happy to see that both look like are in good conditions. Lets cross our fingers for a good rest of pregnancy. Thanks a lot for your help, always. d&j
  9. D&J update

    Hi to everyone. Just few lines to update our process, Yesterday our GC had some bleeding spots and some uncomfortable pain and came in to our fertility clinic, though she had been graduated last week, (she asked us if we wanted to first, and of course we agreed). They did her an ultrasound and our little baby was really good, we were 9w6d and she measured 3cm and her heartbeat was 178bpm. They didn’t find out any rest of blood inside her uterus and everything looked just normal. Our Dr told her just to take this weekend easy and, if the bleeding didn’t stop then come back to the progesterone injections, but they said everything was looking normal, just our baby was starting moving a lot and also told us that movements were just good signal and normal. We were so worried about this, as most of you know, we are international IP and we are so far from where our GC lives, but we want to thank her not only for all her accurate care of our little baby but also because she is really involved and giving us all the information, thanks to God we found her because is the best mate ever wanted. Now we will try to keep calm and breath deep and take it easy but would like to ask you if someone has had that situation along their process. Today we are starting 10week. Thank you so much for your help always. Take care, d&j
  10. 2nd transfer

    Hi! How are you doing? We had our 9th week US today and went perfect! Our little baby girl is growing a lot, she measures now 2.2cm and her heartbeat is 185bpm, so the DR told us everything looked great. At this point they “graduated” us from the clinic and our GC is going to find her OB/GYN for prenatal care. We are so happy and excited at this time! Just wanted to update, how are you all doing? d&j
  11. Hello to everyone, I would need your help once again this time the question is about health plans. Our GC is actually living in ID and our plan is that the delivery will be in Ontario, OR just because is quite near from where she lives now, Boise. We are setting her up a new health plan, due to she has moved from another state and now she is able to purchase a new health plan but we would like to ask if someone know if PacificSource’s plans there (ID/OR), have allowed the surrogacy or if, on the contrary it is considered as an exclusion. We have been looking for information but didn’t find anything so, any help will be already welcomed. Also if someone knew about some other plans in which both states would be in the same network, that would be very helpful for us. Thank you so much in advance for all your help, any information will be very useful for sure. d&j

Our GC said us she was feeling so good, way different than the first transfer so hope this time it sticks... fingers crossed. Do you know if that good feeling is something normal?

Have a very good weekend! Hugs d&j
  22. 2nd transfer

    Hello to everyone, how are you all doing? Hope everything fine. Mikey, is everything going fine? Think it is. We had our transfer on 31st August, we could see it in live and it was amazing, so easy and quick but we felt so happy and loved stay with our GC during that process. Due to we are from Spain, we saw it by Skype but all iur DR helped us and explained us everything while doing... Finally we transferred the hatched embryo, it survived to the thaw and our DR said it had a very good form and colour, she said it looked so nice. Our GC lining was fine and her hormones was also good so everything went good. Now we have to wait until September 11st for the pregnancy test and see if this time we got it! We are so excited!!! DR gave us 60/65% pregnancy and looked very positive. Now is tlwhen nature has to do its part and our little embryo needs to stick into the lining so fingers crossed. Our GC feels good, still taking it easy and getting relaxed and spending a good time with her family. Fingers crossed this time we get it. I will update you once I have more news. Big hugs d&j
  23. 2nd transfer

    Thanks Mikey, Hope your process is going fine and your dreams getting closer. Today she had her linning check and the clinic told us it was 14.5mm, thick and trilaminar!! At first we thought it was too thick but they told us it was a great number so we are so happy. let's see what happens this time, fingers crossed! Have a nice day, D&J
  24. 2nd transfer

  25. 2nd transfer

    Wow!! Let's wait until it will be thawed, hope it survives and yes that was what our DR said, we only knew it was a 5dHBBB Well fingers crossed until the transfer and hope we will be lucky this time. Hope this survive to the thaw! d&j
