The best thing...

The best thing about my surrogacy journey so far is that no one has asked me to step on a scale.

No one.

Not NEFI, not my local monitoring clinic, not my IPs and definitely, not my husband.

Clearly, that is not the best thing about the surrogacy journey, but it's a nice perk. I was expecting to be weighed, measured, poked and prodded. Basically, all of the prior stated is standard and routine EXCEPT weighing in.

I think that will end today. I see my personal OBGYN and I think the first order of business, besides paperwork, will be a weigh in.

I've got an idea of what my starting weight was... so we will see if there has been much of a change. If my feelings get hurt, there may be a stop for ice cream on my way back to work.


  1. My monitoring clinic weighed me every time I went in and after three cycles and it just going up and up with all the meds I was so scared to start off this pregnancy at a higher weight. Thankfully I haven't put on too many pounds since actually getting pregnant so that's relief. I gained 12 on meds and lost some of that before gaining 4 so far with this pregnancy. I hope the scale is leaning your way :)

  2. LOL about the ice cream! It always makes me feel better too. :)
