Just found out in the last few day that the lovely woman who we were hoping would be our surro next year had a C-section last month which means that our schedules are now probably not in synch. We have a meeting with RE this week and will find out when will be the safest time for her to carry another pregnancy.
We do have an alternate surro but although she seems friendly and cooperative, there were a few things that acted as a red flag for me.
1. She mentioned that her children's uncle (BTW - she has seven and no multiples, so fertility is definitely not an issue for her :)) had been shot in the last few weeks and had died. In fact DH remembered reading / hearing about it. Of course this revelation made me super nervous.
2. She complimented my husband on his JEANS..huh? I thought this was weird but maybe she was just being friendly.
3. She insists that IPs transfer no less than 3 embryos...even though I understand her argument which is, that the probability of implantation is higher with more embryos, I believe it is the IPs right to make the final determination regarding the numbers.
Praying that our preferred surro will recover nicely and assist in our journey to be parents. Meeting with the lawyer in Jan. She comes highly recommended and so we are very keen to work with her.
On a happier note, this weekend DH and I will host our annual Holiday Party!! Pics next week.
