So far so good!

The test results seem encouraging! My hCG level is 30.5 (at 10dpo), and apparently anything over 5 means pregnant. I have to have another blood test on Saturday though, to confirm that the level is rising - it should double in two days.

I definitely feel pregnant, sick as a dog! :) However, that could be due to the side effects of progesterone, which I am taking twice a day now to support the little life. Also, the hCG could be a left-over of an injection of Ovidrel, which I was given 12 days ago. But that is unlikely.

Grow little one, grow!

Is the progesterone a tablet or injection? I would love to know your side of the story to how you got here. I know the IP's need to do IVF, but what do you need to do to prepare for surrogacy? I am interested in becoming a surrogate myself one day, so would love to know the ins and outs... ezpecially injection/tablet wise :)

Hi Ashlea - neither, it is a suppository (I know, yuck :). Surrogacy can be a long and rather complicated journey before you actually get to the business end of it. If you want more info, I recommend that you join the surroaustralia group at Yahoo groups. It's a very valuable place where you can get heaps of info and support.
