How many different ways can I title an “update” or “Next steps” post 😆
I didn’t realize it had been almost a month since I posted an update, oops! Honestly there hasn’t been a lot going on the last few days. Our clinic coordinator was out of the office so it was over a week before she got back to me and then it took a few days of messages/emails back and forth to move things along. I had hoped for an end of March or early April transfer, but I think we’ll be lucky if we get one by the end of April.
I still haven’t started CD1 yet after the failed transfer. That’s not really abnormal for me as my cycles off of birth control pills are erratic and unpredictable. In order for the clinic to prescribe me meds to jump start my cycle I have to have an ultrasound and blood work done (scheduled for the day after tomorrow). Once they get the results from that (they’re making sure I’m not pregnant and to see if maybe I’m close to starting my cycle on my own) we can hopefully move things forward a bit.
I have a phone appointment with the clinic’s genetic counselor on Friday. She said it was scheduled for an hour, but I can’t imagine it will actually take that long. I’m thinking that it’s the standard time for all counseling appointments and isn’t taking into account that I’m not an IPs and this isn’t my personal embryo.
So a couple things are getting checked off the list this week. It would be really great if we could get things moving along a little faster after this, but surrogacy is a hurry up and wait game so I will have to be patient (not my strong suit!)
