2 1/2 Weeks Until Egg Retrieval!

I know, I know, I know... I've been slacking... But there really ins't THAT much new to update everyone on...

At this point, we have 2 1/2 weeks left until the egg retrieval, insemination, and transfer. Suzie and Jane have been on their medications for a couple of weeks now. Suzie's drugs are stimulating fresh eggs for retrieval, while Jane's drugs are focused on making her eggs dormant and stimulating the lining of her uterus for pregnancy. Everyone is doing great, and seems to be "on track." Once Suzie's eggs are retrieved, they are inseminated, and "grown out" 3-5 days. The folks at the Clinic will determine when they are at ready for transfer to Jane. After two weeks (and several monitoring visits) we will know if the pregnancy "takes." Two to three weeks later, we should know how many heartbeats there are, and since we are hoping for twins, there should be two!!

Its amazing to think that we could be pregnant within 5 weeks - isn't technology just amazing?!?

Woo0Hoo!! :)


  1. Yippee! That is so exciting! I can't wait to hear the fertilization report in 3 weeks!

  2. Keeping our fingers crossed!

  3. Technology is extremely amazing! Congrats on getting this far potatos! We have our meeting with the surrogacy agency coming up soon. Any helpful advice on what to expect?
