Quoted perfectly from my surro-sister, Shannon:
"Want to read something AMAZING????? Every woman in this group is currently a Surrogate or has been a Surrogate. Some MORE than once!! I am not the ONLY crazy woman out there willing to share my body for approximately 40 weeks to help create a baby miracle!! In just these 15 woman alone, together we have created 23 babies, helping build 17 families!!! 7 of us are currently pregnant. 10 more babies are baking and adding on helping build 7 more families!!! Which leaves a GRAND total of 33 babies building 24 families.... How AWESOME to be a part of this!!! This group of woman are truly AMAZING!"
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending 2 surro get-togethers; one was coordinated by my agency and the other was put together by my surro support group on FB. Both were a great time and I'm so glad that I have these ladies in my life! There's nothing better than being able to talk about boobs hurting, lactating, stretchy skin, and dropping F-bombs in the delivery room and not feeling embarrassed! :-) I don't know what I'd do without them!
On another note, I'm taking a page out of my blog buddy Mark's book and have started juicing! I'm on day 3 and have already lost weight. It's not easy, by any means, but it's well worth it when I see results happening already. Yea, I wanted a sh*tload of non-sense on my 1st day, cookies, donuts, Snickers, chicken; you name it, I wanted it! BUT fighting that temptation is rewarding enough in itself even if I hadn't lost any weight. I just wanted to get a bit healthier before we started cycling for a transfer (those meds pack on the lbs) :\ I'm planning on doing this for 10 days....pray for me!! Eeekkk!
Anywho, that's all I have for now. Hopefully I'll be able to get the finalized contract soon and we'll be on our way to baby makin'!!
