Surrogacy = Hurry Up and Wait!

This is Jenn :)

A year ago, when I initially thought about being a GS, had someone told me, "You'll spend most of your surro journey waiting", I think I would have laughed and not taken them very seriously. But I was thinking about it today: Allison & I met almost a year ago, and I think 85% of the last 11 months has been waiting around...not on each other, but on something that we have no control over - and it hasn't just been 1 thing! Seriously...I waited until we were both certain we wanted to build a relationship together...we had to wait for my testing to be completed and to get the green light...we had to wait on the attorney and the contract...wait on the court date...wait on the PBO...wait for our calendars...wait for hormones to level out...wait for the "virus"...and now we are waiting on calendars again! Uuuggghhh!!!!!

And you know the best part about all of this? We are in such a hurry to get our calendars so that that we can...wait to get to the transfer, so that we can....wait to do a home pregnancy test because we are too impatient to...wait for BETA's (the blood test they do to see if you are pregnant), only to...wait for an U/S to see how many babies there are in my "rented womb"...then wait another 7-8 months to meet the baby or babies face to face!

Just shoot me now....

It's Jenn :)

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Thank you Jesus! We finally heard from the IVF clinic and Doug's blood work came back negative for the virus! We are finally cleared and ready to go again. Now we have to wait for our calendars, but hopefully those will be ready sooner than later :)

Thank you all for your prayers!!! These last 3 months have been an emotional roller coaster for all of us, but we knew that God had it all in His hands! God is Good, ALL THE TIME!!!

Get your prayers started up again.........

This is Allison ~

Doug's next lab draw is this Friday around noon. Please start sending up prayers for us.

I wanted to let everyone know that we read every comment on here and appreciate so much the prayers and thoughts and comments from everyone. It really makes me feel special that so many people care. And so many of you, I don't even know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Jenn or I one will post with the results mid week next week. Oh, I am so hoping for good news this time. :)
