Other Options

After watching Guiliana & Bill, the idea of using a Gestational Carrier is of interest if this next round of IVF doesn't take. I have a few friends that have offered to be a Gestational Carrier but when they are done with having kids. Both have one or two more kids before they would be ready. I then have a SIL that is done having kids, she had two healthy pregnancies, easy deliveries and is in good health. I am thinking of asking her and my brother if they would be interested in being a Gestational Carrier for me if this next round doesn't work.
I have also started looking into the various adoption options. Mr. Explorer Bud is open to looking into the process now and the other options. So that pretty much opens the flood gates of my researching craze that I oh so love. I am going to call and get appointments for the two agencies in my area and then go and talk to two attorneys that deal with private adoptions. That way we will have all our other options explored so we will be able to make an educated decision on what to do if and when we decide to stop doing IVF. I feel much calmer when I have all my ducks in a row!

You and Mr. EB know your own situation enough where you can make this sort of decision... I think it's a great option!!! In the meantime, just think positive, though :)

I felt the same exact way. I did some light searching on adoption as well.

In the meantime, I'm still rooting for you!

Thanks, it is fun/comforting to search our other options just in case.

One of my neices is here via a gestational surrogate. I've seen the joy it can bring and I think it's wonderful you're open to it and that you've got potential volunteers.
