already did the medical testing mental health testing and just met with my lawyer and just need to finish up the final draft for the legal. then next week I began the medication and hopefully by the end of may I am able to get the transfer. so excited didnt think I would get this far but really nervous going over the legal.

has anyone been a surrogate and can give me some advice over everything. the whole processes and to calm my nerves!

it varies. I get 3,200 a month but there are a lot of things I can be reimbursed for. like child care and clothes and travel etc. but I get about 35000 for the whole pregnancy

From the beginning tell yourself the child is not yours. After birth you will give the child back to its parents.

Will this be with your egg or the mothers egg?

Congrats!

I've carried 4 surrogate kids and plan to start the process again in 8 months or so:) Do you have any specific questions?

Don't start a mock cycle until contracts are in place. And don't compromise on things that are important to you in the contract. Everything is amplified once you are pregnant, believe me! Do you have an attorney who is experienced in surrogcy contracts and is representing just YOU?
