The Big Question…….. and it’s long winded answer #surrogacy101 “Sarah, how are you feeling…..?” Everyone asks, and I can hear the undertones of concern along with the question, as if everyone is thinking it but don’t want to say it out loud……… “How do you feel after carrying the twins and giving them back…” Now, I am not going to lie and say I feel nothing. Clearly hormonally and emotionally I have still given birth …

(if that’s something you’re looking into) So in Canada, there …

Why did you decided to be an egg donor? One day I was going through some news articles when I came across one that was written about a couple who was having fertility issues. I immediately felt compassion for them, and couldn’t imagine what they were going through. I’ve grown up in an extremely large family who are all extremely close to one another. That’s when I began doing more research on the struggles that …

Today has a lovely subject. Medications. Now before I start going into all the wonderful things you may be subject to take during your journey, let me just state, that it will sound like A LOT, but it really isn’t when you get your schedule. It’s a lot easier than it looks. (Coming from the girl who forgot a dose of estrogen last night. Im only 9 weeks and this pregnancy brain is killing me.) …

Guest Blogger Jessica Green: Where I Am At Today

jessblog2

I sit here and write, as I am unsure of how to start. Some weeks are good, and some are not. And this week was not, at least on a personal level. So it started where I had a little bit of bleeding.
