First time surrogate

I've been talking with a couple in CA for awhile. They want a gestational surrogacy, which is what I want also. The process is really starting to get serious, and I'm freakin' excited! :) But I just want to know any advice from experienced SM's, about things that you didn't know of but found out the hard way? Any details I should be aware of, that I may not already know? Any kind of advice for me? :) Thanks in advance!

  • I don't either but you are awesome for doing this! I wish I had the strength and guts to do it! Are you gonna move near the couple during the pregnancy?

  • Thank you all!
    @ June_Mama09: No, I will not be moving near them, I live in Ohio. But they have offered to pay all traveling expenses, if they want me to see a doctor in CA, or just to visit, showers, whatever. :)
    @Heidikans: I did not go through an agency either. I met my IP's on We came to an agreement on all the details. They hired a lawyer to come up with a contract, & it's a done deal. :)
