Information Overload ??

I have been reading so many great blogs and I now feel that I am getting more nervous the more I read.
I know this may sound silly, but you start to question your decisions.

I suppose sometimes you do have to go with your gut feeling on things, I may live to regret this comment who knows.......but the deeper I look into things the more frightened I become.

I think I need to stop worrying and just concentrate at the job at hand...i.e sorting out our passports. Both our photos were duds...Doug's was too dark and I was smiling with my teeth showing. So I am having to get our photos redone and re-signed.....DAMN!!

Once we have our passports, time to send off our enrollment forms, enrollment fee, copy of passports, copy of marriage certificate, and a photo of us both to SI.

Need also to get all blood tests and semen analysis completed in November.
Have sent an email to SI to find out the number of egg donars and surrogates we will have to choose form around our time in India in February, I await to hear their response.
I have also asked about embryo transfer, amount of...and on what day.... they transfer. Also asked about freezing costs of sperm and embryos. Just wanting to know a few bits of info before we jump head on in with our I say...nervous now after reading so many great blogs....really you can never have too much information...and I think the closer we get the more nervous I become.

Let's hope this nervous feelin turns back to excitement soon !!


  1. Dont worry i freaked myself out many times any questioned EVERYTHING i did, because i was really the one making the decisions while hubby went along with yeah its a BIG responsibility and teh only person to blame (you would think and its NOT TRUE) is yourself, but really no one is to blame, its just a luck and chance thing.....hunny you'll be fine, concentrate on your paperwork and i'll see you in Feb.!!!

  2. Thanks so much for your support Mandy. Lets hope we are both preggo in FEB!!

  3. Hi Kerry,
    First of all, I hope that everything is going well for you at this phase of the surrogacy process. My name is Abby Rabinowitz, and I'm spending the year in Mumbai on a Fulbright researching a book on Indian surrogacy. My hope is to interview parents like you and surrogate mothers (as well as doctors and egg donors) to paint a complete portrait of the industry. I was wondering if I might be able to ask you about your experiences, either via e-mail or over the phone. Please let me know if you have any questions about my background or project.

    Thanks so much,
    Abby Rabinowitz
