We are sharing the donor's generous gift with one other party, and were the first couple in the match. So now we wait for another couple* to select her. We're back to the waiting place
|From Dr. Seuss' "Oh! The places you'll go!"|
Tomorrow will be 1 year since Sattva's egg retrieval, and from then on, I get to revisit all the important dates of the pregnancy. I flinch a little when people talk about April 2. It was the day we saw the positive pregnancy tests. At the same time, I know my work is to keep looking ahead and putting one foot in front of the other. I am guessing we will be going south in May for the embryo transfer. I am trying to focus on that, knowing that there will be sadness in the months ahead, but knowing that life is asking me to look forward to what's ahead, to our next attempt at becoming parents.
*I use couple, but am aware that it could also be a single woman, or any other arrangement of a family grouping as long as there is a uterus involved.
