A Little Bit Pregnant in Mexico

I have been told that you can't be a little bit pregnant - either you are pregnant or you are not pregnant - there is no in between. Well I am here to tell you that we are a little bit pregnant. Mexico IVF worked for us in the first try and we were the first couple to go there where neither of us spoke any Spanish. We had a translator from the clinic with us every step of the way. Her name was Sofia and she was great.

Anyway, we have about a weeks worth of at home pregnancy tests that are showing that we are pregnant.

Everyone is pushing us for our Beta numbers and we are simply not interested in them. We would prefer to wait until the first ultrasound to found out how many have stuck around and are healthy.

We think that less is more this time around and that we will be fully pregnant when we enter week 38.

I can certainly understand the statement, 'we will be fully pregnant in week 38'. I am pretty sure my IM did not really 'breathe' until the babes were delivered.
There's nothing wrong with being cautious. Thanks for sharing the news though. Lots of positive thoughts can't hurt.

Do we have a date for this 'ultrasound' and does it get done in Mexico or in the US?

We don't have the date set for the ultrasound yet. Our doctor does want one Beta so we will be getting one done on Jan. 4th.

While we did the IVF in Mexico our surrogate lives in the US. She spent 4 days in Mexico for the transfer.

The Pregnancy will be monitored and the baby will be born in the US the entire time.

We will only go back to Mexico for surrogate number two.

It has been an exciting adventure. Your stories about going to India opened our eyes to the possibilities of going to other countries.

We will follow your lead and share our story about Mexico.

Once we sorted everything out and did our research it was really very easy.
