Checking in with Star Shine on her natural cycle can be frustrating. Her journey to help someone have a baby has been a long and winding path. And now it has yet another road block.
The natural cycle is still on plan, and still coming soon. But due to egg donor blackout dates, her timeline has had to be pushed back.
What this means, in a nutshell, is that the woman the IP has chosen to be the biological mother can't travel or be on cycle during ideal times for Star. So instead, they're retrieving her eggs this week and will do a frozen egg transfer later.
Star is back to the back burner, letting her patience continue to gain in strength. She will find out in a few more weeks exactly when they plan to do the transfer. At that time her natural cycle will start over. At that point, so long as her body responds the way it did during mock cycle, it's full speed ahead!
In the meantime, Star has her plate full of other life activities and obligations to keep her distracted. This is still good news. Things are still moving forward. Just at the speed of surrogacy.
