It's been very bitter sweet for me lately. A handful of my most closest surro-sisters have gone through transfers, got that "positive" pee stick, delivered their surro-babies, or are about to deliver. I am so overwhelmed with joy for them, but also a little sad that I am still here and waiting for my turn. There is a girl in one of my Facebook groups that transferred the same week that I was supposed to back in October. We were "transfer buddies". My transfer was canceled and hers was successful. She is now pregnant and I am so happy for her and her IPs!! But, I'm not going to lie.....it's a little sad seeing her posts and thinking to myself that I too could have been where she is at today. I could have been 11 weeks pregnant this week. That makes me sad. It makes me sad that my IPs are still waiting too.
I'm ready to go!! I'm excited to get through the holidays and start fresh with a successful transfer in the new year. I want this so badly. My IPs want this so badly. I know this will happen for us...when the timing is right. But damn it...can't the timing be NOW! I feel like a little girl pouting. I'm allowed to pout just a little, right? ;)
Anyhow, that's about it for me. I met up with a few of my lovely surro-sisters who were in town for their transfer this past month. So, i'll leave you with a few neat pictures of some awesome ladies that I am happy to call my friends. Oh, and by the way...all three of them who transferred are now PREGNANT!!! Yay for surro-babies and more families created!! #ilovesurrogacy!
