Feeling like I am closer

So I feel like I may be closer to having someone help me find a match. I just hope to hear something soon and that I will then be on my way.

This sat. is Katy's baby-shower. I have so much to still do. i hope it's a great day for her and Chason. Not much longer until my little Khloe is her to grace us with her cuteness.lol
It's really nice to see her crib all put together and it set up waiting for her to come home to.
The carseat cover was shipped today. Can't wait to see how it turned out.

Had a good Easter. Tristen had the best time finding eggs.

feeling down

So when I started my search I didn't think it would be this hard and this long. I mean when I first decided to do it again after having baby Tai. I was basically found by my last IP's. Seriously it wasn't even from my add. It was seeing me on smo in my siggy. I got an email and the rest was history. Well until the chose to stop after things didn't got as good as we wished.
So since then I have basically been told I will be very hard to match. Most Ip's want you to have insurance (I understand that but I have since found some to use). I have been told because I had 3 csec, ok well my peri oked me. Since I had GD before, ok but it was controlled by diet not insulin, that my age turns some down, well it's just a year and half older than my last delivery and well heck I can't get younger lol, and my weight, this is not as easy to loose. UGH. After all the meds and babies it's sticking to me like glue. I have tried really I have. I did loose a few but there is more I could loose. The thing is I have been this weight or there about for a few years now and it's never been an issue with the REs they have oked me it's not caused me not to get pg.
I know I am not the "best option" but I'm not the worst either. I know I once they got a chance to know me they would like me. I am am dependable, loyal, loving, funny (ok maybe not to all.lol) caring and giving. I stick by you and give you hope when your feeling down. I lend an ear when you just need to vent. I hold your hand when your scared of what is to come and I jump for joy when you get the best news ever. I am a great surrogate to have. Just need someone to have the chance to know me.

On another note. My TS babe is not a babe anymore. He turns 15 next week!! I just can't even believe how time has flown by since becoming a surrogate.

It's official!

No match for me. I knew it was coming already and so it's not a surprise but still to finally here back from them still stings a little.
Maybe they had talked to the RE's nurse and she told them the RE may not approve me? This could be the reason why I haven't heard from them in days. Why when I did get a reply last week sometime it was very short and nothing informative? I don't know.
Either way their RE said no as she things having 7 babies is too many. This sucks as my own Peri says I am ok and the last RE (Dr. Sher and Dr. Fisch) said I was ok and even did my testing to show it. It is what it is and I can't fix it. I am proud of it. Five of the seven are babies are from surrogacy.
So here I am again looking. I know I will find another couple just wish it wasn't so hard. Hopefully my next post will be of good news.

So I am still waiting to find out if I am officially matched or not. I really like this couple but there have been a few things that I thought were worked out and ok but are now back in the talks and not so ok.
Working on insurance isn't the most fun part of being a surrogate. I sure wish that insurance co. Would be more open to surrogacy and understand these couples have been through so much all ready to have a baby that adding these stresses isn't right.
We should all be able have coverage no matter who is keeping the baby at the end. Even an adoption is covered but because we planned on having one then it's not.
So until we hear more I guess we are in limbo and I may have to keep looking too. I am not even sure if their clinic will approve me yet. Waiting for the RE to get back in town and review my records.

In other news. My daughter's baby shower in April 30th. I have lots to do and plan but I just have to wait to do most of it in a couple weeks. My co Host is so busy right now with her grandpa in in the hospital with a broken hip, now replaced.

So will see what my next update brings. lol
