Here We Go Again!

I’ve been trying to decide what post I should share on Facebook as my “Hey just in case you’re wondering I’m working on being a gestational carrier again!” post. Last time I made a special post when I was ready to share that I was in the process that had lots of info in one place. This time around I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I decided to just do a short post that will quickly get people up to date.

So….I’m in the process of being a gestational carrier again! The hubs and I talked about me doing this again before Colette was born last September (Oh my gosh she’s almost a year old already!). We both agreed that we were okay with me doing this again. We had a wonderful experience with my last IFs and I really wanted to help another couple (I would have loved a sibling journey, but they were one and done). Originally we decided I wouldn’t transfer until Jan 2020, but come this spring I was itching to get started and we decided that I could transfer in Aug, Sept, or mid Oct and that would work in our schedule.

Here’s where we’re at:

  1. I’m using the same agency I used the last go around because I loved working with them
  2. I have matched with international intended fathers again who I refer to as A & O here
  3. The clinic I’ll be using is in Portland which is nice and close to home.
  4. I’ve been medically cleared and we’re hopefully wrapping up contracts in the next 10 days or so.
  5. We have a tentative transfer date of Sept 24th, if everything goes smoothly between now and then we will be transferring 1 embryo. Fingers crossed!

Now you’re all caught up! As always, I’m open to any and all questions you may have about surrogacy. If you don’t feel comfortable asking here please feel free to contact me 🙂 The goal of this blog is to educate and normalize third party reproduction.

Thanks for reading!
