first dates are nerve wrecking!

and by first dates i mean a skype date with a new set of prospective ip's. once again they live abroad, but on the plus side they speak english so no translator necessary! we skyped with my coordinator from the agency and for some reason the video part of the chat wasn't working. it was nice to chat with a total stranger, but it would have been super nice to have seen her! on paper we make a good match, but things can always be different when you "meet" the person. we'll skype again (hopefully with the updated version and video!) wednesday evening.

after another trip to the ivf clinic and my bazillionth blood draw, i am STILL legally pregnant! my beta is down to 10 (horray!), but less than 5 is considered negative. i am still also anticipating, looking forward to, waiting for aunt flo to make her appearance. then we can move this process along. if this is the family for me we kinda have to start back at square one meaning psych testing, contracts and lawyers, and meds. they have frozen embryos up in l.a. so i'll be making a few trips up north. so cross your fingers and legs, whisper a prayer, send some good ju-ju, and/or dance naked under the full moon that i find my perfect match and we can get a family growing again!
