Please let me make it :(

So today is day 2 of the master cleanse. I have been tempted with glazed doughnuts, mcdonalds nuggets and fries and now I am cooking baked spagehtti for dinner, just shoot me now !!! I really want to lose weight but I think this is harder than me just exercising :( I got the uniodized salt today so I could help emilinate more and guzzled 1 tsp of the salt in a 1 liter bottle of water. It wanted to come back up and some succeeded, and after all that I still havent had a BM !!! This is so frustrating. I am so tempted to quit but I want/need to lose weight. I hope I see some weight lose fast or I might just give up?

Baby weight B-gone !!!!!!

Not sure if this is really related to my surro blog but I feel like it is ? I mean if it wasn't for me doing the Surro I wouldn't have this weight right, lol. So as you know I just had the babies Oct 13th so I'am not being too hard on myself  b/c I mean its only been 3 months. The problem is I am planning on doing another surro in April and don't wanna go into another pregnancy with 20lbs extra weight. Therefore b/c of my smart friend Dana I am doing a Master Cleanse, shes the one that told me about it !! Today is the 1st day and so far so good. I mixed 1 gallon of the lemonade drink last night which consist of Cayenne Pepper , lemon juice, and Grade B maple syrup mixed into water. I had the powder Cayenne pepper which was ok at first but then the more and more I drank it the pepper was settling at the bottom of the glass, can you say Yuck!!! So after making myself guzzle 4 glasses I finally had to go back to the store and get the liquid Cayenne Pepper. I must say much much better!!!! So my starting weight of the master cleanse was 156lbs, 37 inches in the waist. I would like to get down to 140 realistically but am going to try to get down to 125-130? We shall see.I went to the store earlier and my D/H wanted some Reese's cup candy it was so hard not to eat one,then of course had to cook dinner tonight which was soooooo hard. I cooked hamburgers and baked potatoes. MAN did it smell so good!!! I am being strong though and not going to give in. So I shall keep you updated if you care, lol. I am also you tubing my experience if you wanna watch them also :) Heres the link if you're interested   http://mastercleansesecrets.com/book2.php?hop=4barb

Going to visit.............

So excited! I spoke with my IFs from my first surro and I am planning on hopefully going for a visit within the next couple months . I am so over the moon right now!!! I cant wait to be able to see the guys and the babies again. I found some cheap rates on air fair but now just worried about were we will stay, I checked on prices of hotels/motels around the area and the cheapest thing I found was $125.00 a night! Theres no way I can afford that :(  Anyone no someone that'll let me sleep on their couch? lol. Well just wanted to tell yall about my great news.

Starting Journey #2 !!!

On Jan 3rd I emailed my contact at Reproductive Possibilites about going ahead and feeling out another applicatin to begin my 2nd journey. She gave me the okay and now I am just patiently awaiting a call about possible matches. I so cant wait to start again and experience another surrogancy. As the process gets further I will blog more and more:)

In the Beginning.................

So my journey began in 2009 when I decided I wanted to become a surrogate mother. I was matched with a wonderful male couple out of NY.After all the meet and greets and making sure I was mentally sound we were signing contracts.Shortly after that the shots began, man I dont think I knew what to expect but I knew it'd be worth it. We did the 1st transfer in Oct with unfortuatley failed. After my IFs found another egg donor shots began again. I went through some trying times this time with the shots. My husband was doing them and he was doing great at first but then he or I was doing something wrong and the shots started hurting so bad! We fnally did another transfer Feb 24th. My best friend went with me and had to give me my shots while we were there. I was kinda nervous seeing she'd never done anything like this before but she did great!!!

I knew we were going to be successful with this transfer. It was my nieces birthday, my little sister had went into labor with her second baby and one of the Fathers, G was able to make it to the transfer this time :) Above is a picture of him and I right before the transfer and below him getting ready to go in for transfer.

 So at 4DP a 5DT I started peeing on the sticks, lol!
Low and behold they were POSITIVE!! My husband was scared that I was getting my hopes up too quickly because the line as you can see was light? But I knew it was there and not going anywhere!!!

So on March 17th we had our 1st u/s, not for the reason we wanted but we got it. It was TWINS !!!!!!!!

I had started bleeding the night before and thought the worse. When they did the scan they saw that everyone was ok. I ended up having 2 more episodes of the bleeding through the pregnancy . It was the worst thing through the whole process. Zoom fast forward and on Oct 13, 2010 at 2 am I woke up to a wet bed. I at first thought I was peeing on my self b/c it wasn't like the show in the movies like this big gush. Anywho we got up I called the doctor then called the guys. Headed to the hospital and by 3:00pm I was ready to start pushing out the babies:)

This is G , J and I after such an easy delivery....Down below are the wonderful babies that resulted from such a wonderful experience.
