We've gained a month!

2 friends announced their pregnancies yesterday, which sent me spiraling into a baby rage-depression. After the crying, screaming, swearing, and snot filled sobbing had subsided, dh suggested that we move our big ttc date from July to June. It wasn't quite the January that I had been begging for, but after so many childless years, I will take what I can get! So, June it is. Around midnight I sent a text to M to share the exciting news & June works perfectly for her and her dh. They are ready and waiting on us so I'm sure a month sooner is a welcomed change.

June is 205 days away! I've planned vacations with a longer countdown than 205 days! I can do this. I can wait 205 days after waiting this long. I can do this...


  1. Sara,
    I too have gotten news of people getting pregnant in the last few days. Some I didn't even know were pregnant and got the news they were ready to deliver soon! I am happy for my friends who have struggled though, that news is fantastic. I too can't wait. I will be trying with my TS this month. I hope and pray that this is my month to make that fantastic announcement. I hope that soon it will be your month also!!

  2. Sara,

    I am so sorry. I wish I could make things better for you... keep the faith. I became a mom at 45 almost 46 and the Duo are my life...
    The DH said to me, when we were adopting "One and We're Done". I bet he would have said that during our journey too, it took so long and was so incredibly expensive.

    Instead, God created the Duo. I am so blessed. I love being an older mom.


    I can keep up just as well as the young'uns and have the wisdom and experience of an older person....

    In addition, I will never have empty nest symdrome, which all my HS friends seem to have right now as their kids either enter jr/senior year of HS or graduate.

    The DH will retire just as the kids graduate from HS. Which I LOVE! No empty nest syndrome....

    Hugs and blessings to you... and M.

  5. Sara - these next few months will fly by and it will be your time before you know it! I can't wait to share your journey!

  6. Thank you for this blog. It's so inspiring! I'm so happy for you! We should always fight for our dreams and goals no matter what. I also can't carry a baby by myself. I was born without an uterus. There is no chance for me to get pregnant and feel my baby pushing into my stomach. Still I'm grateful there are places and people who can help us with our problem. At the same time this is really hard to find good agency or clinic. There are so many scammers, who want to become rich, using poor people like us. There are even women, who pretend they want to be surrogates and then they get money and dissapear. Unfortunately our family faced such woman. Three years ago my dh and I decided to find sm by ourselves. We thought the procedure will be cheaper in this way. We met with her and discussed everything. She seemed so kind and lovely person. After our first payment she was gone. She didn't answer our phone calls or mails. It was so hard to get back to search of another place to go. I was seeing deception and a dirty tricks everywhere. After our experience we decided not to contact agencies and especially search sm by ourselves. We were looking for reliable clinic with professional doctors and high rate of successful treatments. We decided to concentrate mostly on Europe. As India was closed, we were choosing between Russia and Ukraine. Ultimately we chose Ukrainian clinic biotexcom. Reviews were mostly positive and this clinic has high success rates. Though we had some doubts about their medicine, we decided to go there and check everything. Our concerns faded away when we talk to our doctor and program coordinator. We saw fashionable design of the clinic and modern equipment. And the most important we saw so many couples there! People all over the world came to this clinic for surrogacy and de ivf programs. We have no regrets! We are so lucky we went straight to this clinic. Our daughter Kristine was born in May last year. We celebrated her first birthday 2 weeks ago. Dear, I wish you and your wonderful family all the best!
