We are on day 8 after our second transfer attempt with our surrogate. On our first transfer many months ago, our surrogate took a pregnancy test exactly one week after the transfer. She peed on a stick and then called us on the phone. I remember feeling so nervous and excited thinking it had to be positive!
She was very confident about testing one week past the transfer. She had always gotten positive results with her prior pregnancies, two with other intended parents. So she followed the same protocol from experience. But, not surprising to us, considering the luck we have regarding family building, it was negative. She went for her beta a week later, and to our surprise yet again, it was positive! Well, the beta was a measly 10 and a few days later was still 10 and it wasn't viable after that.
So this time we told our surrogate that we didn't want to know if she was going to pee on a stick (POAS) this time. We couldn't bare the roller coaster. We would prefer to wait for the blood beta HCG result. So that will be on Monday.
I have no idea if she took a test or not this time. I'm assuming she has. I would if I were her! It's killing me! I can't gauge from our conversations if she did take a test and even if she did, if it is either negative or positive.
Could we be pregnant? Could it be twins? Or was it another failed cycle?
We have waited this long, been through so much and now we are days away from knowing. We are praying it works this time...the final chance for us in this journey.
