Hi Ladies,

Anyone else bitten all their nails down during 2ww? We are 3dpt5dt (my sister is being our host surrogate - shes amazing I know halo ) and im going through waves of optimism and despair! Shes much more laid back than me and Im finding it harder to distract myself even though Im not the one physically experiencing anything! sad Our beta is 25th May but atm I feel like its impossible to make it until then!!!!! Would love to hear some positive stories!!

My background:

Me: 27 with MRKH
DH: 54 (2 children from previous marriage)
Transferred a 5 day Blast

Wishing you all lots of luck!! smile xx

Gosh I'm so excited for you! What a wonderful story! I have everything crossed for you and will be following along to hopefully see your bfp!! 🤞🏻

Cakelaur and Bubblegum89 - thanks for your kind words grin

We think we may test at 6dpt5dt which will be Sunday - realistic that it may still be early but we will be at my sister's that day and will be nice for the 3 of us to do one HPT together! smile

I think that’s amazing. How brave of you all. I always considered being a surrogate myself and it still isn’t off the cards as long as I’ve had all the children I want by then.
It’s the most incredible gift you can ever give and your sister is inspirational. How lucky you are to have each other.
Good luck. Keeping everything crossed for you x x x

Thank you MagicalCreatures smile. She really is - we were originally going to go with an agency because I would have never have asked her, it needed to be something she felt strongly enough about to come to me about it. When we went through our first cycle of IVF last year we retrieved 2 eggs from me which was pretty low considering my age. It was an emotional journey but we ended up with both little eggs making it to blasts! I think it was the excitement felt by us and our family that made her feel like she wanted to be part of our story smile. She has been amazing so far and we are all praying that we get a BFP on 25th!

Thats amazing that you would consider it! I know its not for everyone but being on the brutal side of infertility and knowing what it can mean for someone trying to have a baby, if I could then I would!

Thanks for your well wishes xx

What a wonderful story and experience for you.
I really hope I get the chance to give that gift one day.
More people need to see it that way. As giving the most precious gift.
Let us know how it goes. X x x x
