Stop looking at those surrogate classified ads woman! You have no business looking at those right now. There. I just thought saying it (well, typing it) would help reinforce it in my mind! It's a compulsion, I swear. I even looked at them sometimes while pregnant. It's usually a pretty even 2:1 ratio of surrogates to IP's. Way more in need of a surrogate than the other way around. Have I mentioned my agency has already contacted me about another journey as well? I told them that we still need to wrap up surrogacy number 1 before thinking of a second (A few unpaid hospital bills still floating around, etc..).
Other than my marathon postpartum bleed (10 weeks with only a sporadic week of non bleeding), things are good. Totally done with the perinatologists office and Lord help me, if I never have to step foot in that place again, I'll be one happy woman! My gynecologist was very happy to see me though. Gave me a good once over, beamed looking at my delivery record and sent me on my way with some birth control pills (for the bleeding). Dang! I was kind of hoping to be done with hormones for a while. But then I dug out, and threw away some of my old progesterone in oil needles and decided the bcp's weren't so bad ;-)
