Soooo… long time no see.. here’s the update..

8 01 2014

I got nothin’ for ya.

I’m hoping we’ll somehow luck into a gestational carrier that doesn’t cost $60-80k (i.e. one not a stranger through an agency.) We’re happy to pay her, and thank goodness Texas is a very progressive state for GC arrangements. But otherwise, it’s not happening. We have two embryos left on ice, I’m 41, and there’s nothing left to try to quell my insane inflammation besides IVIg, and that on top of the neupogen and everything else is just probably too expensive for too small a hope that it might work. I’d rather put them into a healthy uterus.

Or… maybe just be the cool aunt.

I’m working my brain around that.

I love you… thanks for reading.

Glad to see you on here again, I hope something works out for you. We also had started looking into a GC, not inexpensive, that’s for sure! Hope 2014 is good to you! Hugs.

Glad to hear an update from you and that you still have two embryos on ice. Looking forward to hearing more about your GC process. It may not be the path to motherhood that you originally envisioned, but you have embryos to use, and it may be the missing piece to get you your family! Not sure if you follow Kharini over at My Fertility Blog, but her GC is pregnant with twins right now after a long road of 4 IVF’s of her own, and it might be worth checking out if you’re interested. Might be good to see the positives 🙂 Wishing you the best finding a proper GC you can afford and feel comfortable with!

Best of luck my friend, I’ve been thinking about you. We may travel down the GC path too.

Many prayers and hugs…I would carry for you for free if my body was not in worse shape than your immune wise…:(

Okay, so, it’s not like I think everything I say and do is so damn awesome that everyone should know about it. In a blog. It’s just that as if being blind, and a vegetarian, with anxiety/OCD, and having the ability to accidentally break almost anything, and not liking chocolate, would be enough. But no. I also have to have IVF. Could I be any more minority? So it’s like god is playing one big joke on me… and I am not going down without a fight. In fact, God, I’m going to tell your mum on you. Well I would if my knowledge of religion was good enough for me to figure out who your mum is. Eve? Is it Eve? Well, Eve, this is what your son has been up to, and God, I just got you grounded pretty much forever. In your face, God. Ha.
