Transfer & 2WW version 2.0

We got the report on Tuesday that they have completed the transfer of the embryos into our new surrogate.  All of the embryos survived the thaw and most of the embryos made it to blastocyst.  We would have been happy with just one "ok" blastocyst, so we're thrilled to have three!  One of them is a grade 4AA - really can't get any better than that!

The other good news is that this 2WW is a bit shorter than last time because the embryos have already developed so far.  The pregnancy test is on next Thursday (watch this space).  We've also been doing a fantastic job at keeping ourselves distracted during this attempt because our lives are being turned upside down in other areas (all good things) and we're feeling really positive this time around.

Hope all is well for everyone else out in blogville.

Fathers Day

Happy Father's Day to all of the dads & "to-be" dads out there.  Even though Aussies celebrate in September, Happy Father's Day to you guys too!  (Fingers crossed that we'll be celebrating it slightly differently next year)

There isn't much going on over here - we're just waiting to transfer again, which will be in a couple of weeks, so I guess we're kind of in a 4WW.

If you're bored, check out this article written by a great dad:  A Father, a Son, and a Fighting Chance  He's the father of one of the guys who has directly helped push Proposition 8 in the direction of the Supreme Court.  It's a great story.

Wishing everyone out there good luck on their journeys!
