The grateful and the annoying
22 weeks 1 day
As we move further into this pregnancy, Mr. Duck and I are filled with a continuous feeling of gratitude.
Having any complications in a surrogacy pregnancy can be stressful to everyone, to the IPs who just want everyone to be healthy, and the surrogate, who have to suffer out the bed rest, and the surrogate’s family who have to pitch in to help out their mom.
I can not imagine that it is easy on anyone, and yet again it is one of the reasons that IPs are amazed at the women who carry our children. Imagine, our dreams get to come true, if it wasn’t for M and her family, we would not be waiting with great anticipation for our children.
We are, and always will be, eternally grateful.
And now for the annoying.
I can not go to the much anticipated, ever so very much looking forward to appointment on Feb 1 because the doctors have scheduled a meeting at the exact same time as the OB appointment.
While yes, I could tell them to go to hell and risk loosing my job, I also can’t do that because I simply can not afford to be unemployed in this recession.
So there it is, yet again, I have to go without experiencing the fun anticipated appointments so that I can keep bringing in my little family contribution.
I am comforted that Mr can go this time (he has juggled work stuff now for over a month planning on this appointment).
At least the high risk OB is right across the street from my work and I will be able to go to that, unless for some reason the doctors screw me again…
