It's been a full year since I shared that I wanted to have a baby via surrogate... and it's been relatively smooth sailing, so I can't complain that we've hit a snag. After retrieving 18 eggs from my body, fertilizing 11 of them, we only have one left. None of the others made it to the next stage [and I blame Friday the 13th to be honest but guess it could be something else]. It's a brutal thing to hear.. but at least we have one.
You can hear all of my thoughts and reactions in my latest show - The HYPE! with elizabethany and Zac. [but please, if you're a member of our family, do us ALL a favor and stop listening after 6 minutes.] There are lots of other episodes covering the journey as well, if you aren't caught up via Instagram.
Also... Another thank you to everyone who has reached out to share their own stories. I know that I'm very much not alone, and that lots of women have it much harder than me. In fact, I'm trying to figure out how to go about helping everyone. Would a podcast sharing individual stories do anything? Start some sort of fund? Just keep doing what I'm doing? What do you want/feel like is missing in this world?
