Hey Moxie,

so far no positive testing. This morning we made
our urine test.
We now are going to hike the day to get the head


The beta is tomorrow. I hoped, but to be honest this is what I expected. This was her last chance before moving on to egg donation. They have had their egg donor chosen since shortly after Dr. Sleepy first made the suggestion back in early April. It was of utmost importance that they had a completely open donor, one with whom they felt a visceral connection, one who would remain a close friend so that their child would always know. They have found that with the special woman who is their chosen donor, and they have made their peace. To me, this is what feels right for them. I now sense the proverbial light at the end of their tunnel, and though today I do feel the sadness of yet another negative, it is juxtaposed with renewed hope for Mia and Urs. And that, my friends, makes me very happy, indeed.

  1. Sucks, sucks, sucks. I had hoped and prayed that this would work for them. I’m glad they already have other options lined up and I hope and pray that path will lead them to the baby they’ve been dreaming of.

  2. Please pass along how terribly sorry I am, and yet, like you, how incredibly moved that they’ve already lined things up for the next step in the process. Takes great strength.

  3. You’re a wise woman Moxie. I am sad for them, but I’m hopeful in that they seem to have made peace with this and bravely embraced another option. I hope and pray for only happiness in their future!

  4. Oh, I was so hoping for Mia and Urs. I’m glad they’ve already found an ED that they can connect with so well. I will continue to keep them in my thoughts.

  5. Aw crap, as much as I *thought* this might happen I really did not want it to be like this – I hope and pray they get their baby one way or another…
    HUGS to Mia and Urs
