Well it's official. We are off to make a baby in India this summer! (I'm already imagining making a "Made in India" one-see.) Plane and train tickets purchased; doctor appts are set and confirmed.
There is a surprisingly great and diverse blog community that have traveled the same route (ie. surrogacy in India.) If you are interested, you can look at my blog links and see the current ones I am reading. Lots of on the edge stuff for ya. Be forewarned: one blog will lead you to 20 more. Eventually you will loop back around, but come prepared with tissues.
It's our first IVF cycle and I'm trying to do everything possible to make sure it is a success. Cut out all alcohol (I miss you dear wine...), cut waaaayyyyyy back on the caffeine (= need for naps), showers instead of baths (this makes me very sad) and tons of other stuff I probably don't need to worry about but am anyway. I even forwent oysters the other night. Amazing how many things we take for-granted. Hopefully it will pay off. I'm taking prenatal vitamins and baby aspirin. Next month I start acupuncture.
Here we go. 1,2,3 JUMP!
