I’m sure you’re all saying "what?!?!?! I didn't even know you found a carrier?!?!?"
Well, we decided to keep our journey a complete secret up to this point (our parents didn't even know until last week!) for a few reasons. But mainly because this entire process is just so.... public. It’s not the private romantic story most parents have of how their child was conceived. With so many doctors, professionals, and participants involved we wanted to keep what little shred of privacy and “sacredness” we could in such a public process.
Now that we are comfortably 8 weeks pregnant we wanted to share our news with the world!!!
I’m sure you all have many many questions, and I’ll try to answer many as I can now.
How many attempts and where/when was the embryo transfer?
We had our first (and only) embyro transfer at John Hopkins on Sunday, January 18th, 2015 (MLK Jr weekend).
How many embryos did you transfer?
We transferred 1 embryo, and have one baby on the way.
Is it a body or girl?
We didn’t do any pre-genetic testing, so we don’t know the gender yet.
What’s the due date?
October 6, 2015
We have been video recording every step of our journey and once she/we do feel comfortable we will share it with you and then all of your questions (I hope!) will be answered.
