#GestationalSurrogacy ~ Update...

I haven't posted about this pregnancy for awhile now, but I guess I need to post a quick update. Unfortunately last Wednesday at what was supposed to be our 10 1/2 week ultrasound we found out this little peanut had stopped developing not long after our 8w2d ultrasound 2 weeks prior... I don't even have any words to express my sadness and disappointment for my intended parents. My heart aches... after all they've been through - everything looked so great at our first two scans, and then bam... baby is gone. I keep wondering if there is something, ANYTHING I could have done differently...

The parents have opted to have genetic testing done, to make sure there isn't a reason they can use the remaining two embryos they have from the same donor. I should hear from the clinic tomorrow morning to get that finalized and scheduled, hopefully soon. I hate that I've known for almost a full week now that baby is gone, and yet I am still carrying the pregnancy and my body still thinks it is pregnant. I am staying on medications to help keep things stable so they can do the D&C procedure in the clinic.

I hope we get an answer, but I also know that often times genetic testing doesn't reveal anything wrong... I wish I could fix this somehow...

After the genetic testing results I should get an update on what the parent's would like to do next. Hopefully in another 2 - 3 months we will be able to cycle again, and try again with their remaining embryos and pray, pray, pray for a happier ending...
