They told us not to...

And really it wasn't us. But we knew going in that at-home pregnancy tests are not reliable, and the only thing that really counts is the blood test that's coming up on Friday. Can I tell you that I AM LOSING MY MIND?! Well-I mean, not really losing my mind. But I'm cautiously optimistic.  Our surrogate has a bit of an obsession with at-home pregnancy tests. She's been taking them, well, come to think of it...I don't know how soon she started taking them.  We do know she started seeing hints of a positive result starting on Saturday, 3 days after transfer day.  So here we are a week later and the lines on the tests are getting darker. We scheduled a video call for LIVE results. The 2 minute wait was CRAZY (its says YES+) We're staying cautiously optimistic.  In the meantime, we're waiting on our power to come back on after severe thunderstorms tore through Georgia, Tuesday night around 9pm.  We lost power about that time and the latest update for p

Transfer at Baby-lon

Here we are just about 36 hours from our transfer day. And I'm losing my mind. My mind is going crazy. I'm trying to stay right here. In the moment. AND IT'S FREAKING HARD!
