On Sunday, our surrogate called us to tell us she had started her period. We were, of course, quite disappointed but did handle it better this go around, as we had determined to keep our hopes in check.
The next day, however, I got a call from our surrogate asking me to meet her. It turns out that the blood was implantation bleeding and she was testing positive with HPTs. The following day, our fertility specialist confirmed the positive result and today confirmed the appropriate increase in HCG. We’re early in our process, but we are officially pregnant! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Thanks to all of you for all of your well-wishes!
