Motivated

Firstly thanks so much to you all for your kind words and making our blog roll counter climb to unprecedented numbers over the past few days. Having an online community support us is just amazing and we quite often speak of how geneorus you all are with your words. We feel blessed to have each of you follow our journey, and equally blessed to be part of yours.
The call from the docs was a hard one, for us and the docs. The solemn voices of the doctors as they delivered the news...our hearts pounding and bodies shaking. It is quite an experience. We have been with SI for a very long time now and have so much confidence in the docs and our relationship with them.
The docs know Mark and I well enough now and that we are people of action. We are not the kind to wallow in our sorrows. We take our lumps and start planning next steps immediately. After the delivery of the negative news we were onto planning next steps. For us...why wait? It just did not work this time and that is ok. We need to move forward! We cannot greive for lost embryos. We can only plan for the next transfer, bigger, better...GREAT!!
So, the stress of shipping gets to start over again! We have 8 embryos here of which 5 are very good quality. I will see the clinic on Thursday to make these arrangements and I have contacted Greg at Core to initiate shipping conversations. See...all action!! You may remember that we have three embryos in India now so why ship more? We plan to transfer our max embryos and Dr Yash wants to also transfer blasts (5 day embies). This is a great plan for us! Action action, move forward, make adjustments and get rolling!!

  6. You might be down right now, but you're definitely not out. Working on your next plan will help focus your minds on the positive outcome surely to come. Actions lead to results and those are only possible if you try, try again. Best wishes on your next cycle!

  8. Kerrie and Mark, as someone said on one of the boards/blogs...the only people who son't become parents through surrogacy are those that give up. I admire you for moving forward so quickly and am so sorry that your first transfer wasn't the positive we were all hoping for.

  9. I am very happy for you that your are moving ahead so quickly. SI's IVF partner has great success with FET, and I'm sure they and the SI docs are going to do everything possible to make this next cycle work out positive for you.

  10. See, there was no need for me to ring - you've worked out (and kicked off) the next plans already. Go for it guys!!! You WILL have success and we WILL be holidaying somewhere warm with our kiddos in five years time. Considering the costs of shipping, is it worth doing another cycle in the meanwhile so you've got more embies to use??

  12. You guys are amazing and resilient. I know it is going to work for you. I also think your idea of transferring blastocysts is a really good one.
