  1. WOW, I CANNOT believe they lost your 2 frozen embryos while shipping them to your new clinic! Incompetence at its best (or is it worst?). Makes my blood boil.

  2. I could cry over your lost embryos. Seriously! Not cool!

  3. I can't believe they lost your embies!! That is atrocious I am sorry.

  4. There are no two ways that India is the world leader in attracting patients from across the borders for medical treatment in India like shipping frozen embryos to india, surrogacy cost in india, Surrogate mothers India, Surrogacy in India, Indian surrogacy, gamma knife, brain surgery at best hospitals in India.

  5. Oh holy jeezum I can't believe your embryos were lost in transit. That is horrific. Was there any consequence to the shipping company? I am so sorry for that devastating loss. And the chemical pregnancies as well, which are further devastating losses. Good luck to you on this incredibly difficult journey!

  6. Wow they lost your embryos, just speechless on that one for sure. I am so sorry for that terrible loss and the chemicals as well. Wishing you the best of luck and I'm looking forward to following your journey.

  7. Hey--congratulations! I missed this new development... I am excited for you and will be thinking of you as you grow that baby!
