After we returned home from John Waters last night, we had some time to have a glass of bubbles, and a chat on the bed.
That's when it finally hit me ... we were over 8-weeks pregnant with "Baby R" ... almost at the end of our first trimester! Our second scan arrived last week, and it showed a very healthy pregnancy.
We had decided to use a small hospital for this pregnancy, instead of a clinic. It's nice to know that all the medical procedures are done under one roof, and supervised by the same doctor. Dr Shivani and Phoenix Hospital have been wonderful.
Our first surrogate had not "taken" (so no happy news for Christmas), but transferring less embryos carries this risk; but we were lucky enough to be able to have a second attempt, and we received the news early Feb that our second surrogate had returned a beta test in the high 180's ... a very positive sign!
Our collective fingers are crossed that everything proceeds along nicely ... and Evelyn and Gaia will have a little brother or sister later in the year!
