After matching with the couple, there were many tests I had to complete - the first being a Psych evaluation. I went CRAZY waiting to find out whether or not I was...crazy (not really)...funny how that works.

The psych evaluation consisted of a Skype interview with me, Phil and a psychologist - general questions about every day life and why I want to be a surrogate. At the end of the conversation, I was told I passed!

After passing the psych evaluation, I my next step was to go to the fertility clinic for a medical screening. At the medical screening, I got to spend the afternoon meeting the intended parents in person. It was amazing how comfortable we all felt around each other!

...I also passed the medical screening.

November 2014

Phil and I met a couple via Skype and felt completely comfortable talking to them - like we've known them for a long time.  Funny how that works.

We all said yes.

Life as a surrogate in waiting...

Being a surrogate in waiting is very interesting.  

You start out by doing a ton of paper work and interviewing.  You have surrogacy on your mind all of the time.  Then, there comes a point in time where you wait.  

You wait to find those intended parents who have the same values as you.  You wait to find those intended parents who want to work with you.  You wait to find those intended parents you want to work with.  You wait to find those intended parents you're compatible with.  

You wait to be matched.

During this waiting process, a lot of times you forget you're a surrogate in waiting.  You work, you raise your kids, you fix up your house - you simply live life.

Then, without much notice, you get a call that intended parents have viewed your profile and want to meet you.  Now, you're back to constantly having surrogacy on your mind again...but you realize you didn't find *those* intended parents and you go back to waiting.

Phil and I have always had the mindset of, "if it works out, great but if it doesn't, that's okay" and I think that mindset is what has gotten us this far in the process.

...til next time.

For rent


One womb.  Fully functional.  28 years of age.  

Inquire within.

I'm thinking about matching independently.  How does one go about marketing/promoting their womb?  

Time to do more research!

Back from a long break

Hi, all - remember me?

This summer was SO busy.  I didn't even have a minute to sit back and think about the fact that I haven't been matched with intended parents yet.

Now that things have settled down, I have sought the support from fellow surrogates.  They are all in shock that it's been 10 months and I haven't been matched.  They have suggested I look into other agencies.

SO, that's what I'm doing.  Researching and talking with other agencies.  Wish me luck!

Hello again.

Hi guys - remember me?  I'm back!  The winter has been long so far.  From November - January, I was completely booked with baking and now that we're into February, I am ordering my bees for the summer but will be keeping it low-key with only one hive (unless my other hives survived the polar vortex).

On to this whole surrogacy thing.  I have been waiting...very patiently to have activity on my profile.  I figure if it happens, great and if it doesn't then it wasn't meant to be.  

A couple from another country checked out my profile last week and liked what they read but they have additional questions and concerns at this point so I have yet to see their profile.  Things seem to be moving along...slowly but surely.  I don't mind at all.  The longer I wait, the older my kids get, resulting in a better understanding of the process.

I will keep you all updated in the next couple of weeks.  For now, enjoy the double digits, MN!
