Finally...



We are here safe and sound and believe it or not this is the first we have been able to access the blog. We are in Jaipur, outside under the moonlight trying to get a wireless connection. The internet in our hotel in Mumbai wouldn't work, so this may be our last entry till we return to the States. Hopefully not, but just in case we don't come back on to share with you, you will all know why.

We are having a FABULOUS vacation get-away in the North East of India. We have done so much in 2 days it is unbelievable. Rode on elephants, camels and saw a snake charmer. We have sightseen, shopped, swam, eaten authentic Rajasthan food and so much more. We had a slight change of plans as Dr. Sudhir wanted to surprise us and instead of the palace we are now staying at Chokhi Dhani, a 5 star ethnic village resort in Jaipur. It is more then we could have ever imagined.

Our first scan on Sunday with Dr.Yashodhara went very well with many follicles. More on the left side and less on the right, but she said we are right on track for cycle day 6. We increased my dose to 750 units of Gonal F and I am doing GREAT! We saw Dr. Yash's clinic and were able to meet and visit with our surrogate and her family and meet 2 other surrogates awaiting their pregnancy results (which just so happen to be 2 of our fellow support group members). I even got a henna tattoo (Mehendi) on my hand from one of the surrogates and it was wonderful to be welcomed and treated so special.

Once again our trip to India is more then we could ever imagine and we have only just begun. After our little get-away here in Jaipur we are completely rested and full steam ahead for the rest of our baby making journey.

Lots of pictures and videos are to come. Please keep us in your hearts and prayers and keep your fingers crossed that we will be back here to update very soon.
