So...we finally get a call from our attorney informing us that the final draft of the contract is ready for our signatures. Oh, happy day!!! I quickly send my aunt a text letting her know of the wondrous news. And it turns out she has news for me: WE AREN'T CYCLING UNTIL SEPTEMBER.
Say what?! Ugh.
But at least we have something solid to look forward to now.
I don't know if I mentioned this in my last post, but I've been seeing a therapist to help prepare for the surrogacy. She helps me to handle daily stresses (a.k.a. my husband and daughter) effectively so that I can concentrate on having a healthy pregnancy if we are lucky enough to be blessed with a successful transfer.I had an appointment with her today and we discussed the possible reactions of my husband's family when they learn about the surrogacy. We had decided from day one that we wouldn't tell them unless it was a viable pregnancy. We're not very confident that our decision to do a surrogacy will be very well received. I sincerely hope that this is not the case, but experience tells us that this won't go down easy. Even my husband's parents (his dad is the IF's brother) aren't on board. They wouldn't dream of letting my aunt and uncle know that they disapprove, but apparently, those rules don't apply to me. Snide comments and that I-can't-believe-you-guys-are doing-something-so-crazy head shake, abound. Grrrrrr. There hasn't even been an embryo transfer and already so much negativity. *sigh*
