Surrogacy By The Numbers

Surrogacy at the early stages is about the numbers.

How many follicles.

How many eggs.

How many mature eggs.

How many fertilized.

How many embryos.

How many embryos are healthy.

Every stage the numbers go down. Day by Day the numbers get lower and you odds go down with them each step of the way.

So much about Surrogacy is managing expectations so that you can stay positive throughout the process.

We beat expectations in the number of eggs. We got 6 when we expected to have 5.

We now have 4 fertilized embryos. That means we have 4 potential babies.

The next stage is to find out how many of them are healthy.

Based on our expectations we are still expecting to have 1 that is healthy and viable.

We expect to have good answers be the end of this week.

Our history with Austin was 6 eggs, 4 mature, 3 fertilized embryos, one healthy child. 

Let's hope for a repeat.
