Well there's just not a lot going on here right now .. I am on week 2 of my birth control pills and so far no major headaches ! Woot! In the past (many many years in the past, when I actually used these silly things), I had a very hard time finding a bcp that didn't give me horrible headaches. One relief at least!
We are still at a standstill - waiting on my Nov. 1st appointment to finally get here. Patience is not my strong suit.. LoL!
The only progress that I can report at this time is that Patricia* and I have been hashing out the details of the contracts. Normally, we wouldn't start contracts until after medical screening - to save $$ just in case something came back disqualifying me from being a surrogate .. However, we have little patience and have to do something ! We figured we can go thru an old contract and see what we agree and disagree with ourselves - so when the time comes we just hand it to the attorney and tell her to write it up! We do only have a window of roughly 15days to get the contract done and signed (between my medical screening & when we would start meds if we want to make a transfer yet this year), so any little bit helps.
For now- things are very boring here! Don't worry, soon enough I will have lots of fun updates and pictures to share.. We all know I babble endlessly so I'm trying my best not to just babble meaningless stuff over here! :) That's best saved for the regular blog.. HA!
*A side note -- Surrogacy is illegal in many European countries. Due to this, many international Intended Parents come to the United States to find a surrogate. My IPs are from Spain- where surrogacy is illegal, and due to this there will be no identifying pictures of them & their loved ones. Also - I'm just going to say it here : the names used are not their real names. IM picked out cute fake names for me to use so I wasn't constantly calling them IM/IF ect! I am thankful to her for that and hey she's better at renaming people than I am because if I had to do it who knows what she might have gotten.
And so I introduce you to my IM - Patricia , my IF - Jaime and Patricia's sister in law (who is also reading along and will be visiting during the pregnancy) Leny !
Hi LENY !!
Until next time,
