Holiday Memories

There are a ton of memories from the holidays that I could share....a lot of heart warming stories of family and full bellies....

But this year, my memory of the holidays will be different.....this year, I will have to remember that not only is it the day of the Birth of Christ.....but it is also the day of death of my sister.

December 25th is changed forever for me now. I will always have great memories and good times on Christmas Day....but they will be a little more bittersweet now...


I miss you so much everyday...and because we hadn't seen each other in so long before you passed, I can almost imagine that you're still just in North Bay, doing your thing, living your life. But then I snap back to reality and remember that I will never, ever answer the phone again and hear you answering back, "Hey, Brat!".

I hope that you have a great Christmas this year....the best you ever had. I will be thinking about you all day...and I will visit you and Dad at the cemetary at some point just to say hi...I know you're not really there but it gives me a place to go in private and talk to "nothing". I know you're both there listening and that brings me more comfort than you know.

Wherever you are.....Merry Christmas big sister....we all love and miss you so very much.

Love, Brat.

I'm ready

I finished all my Christmas shopping in TWO days this year! It sucked, but it's done. Now, on with the holiday, the sooner, the better. I like Christmas but hate the seems like everything has to be done NOW...there is no time to breathe!

In other news, I'm 11 weeks and 2 days pregnant now...just a short 5 days from the 2nd Trimester already! WOO! It's gone by fairly quickly too...thank God for that!

I totally don't have much else to say....sadly, I'm boring these days. :(

I put it out there before, if you want to know something, leave me a comment....I'd be happy to answer/comment about it if it gives me something to write about!! Hopefully, I'll be more interesting after the holidays otherwise!

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate....Happy Whatever-You-Celebrate to those of you who don't!

Sunday Scribblings

Did you "mis-spend" your youth? Absolutely!
What kind of kid were you? I was a good kid, but I was headstrong and independent, my parents and I butted heads all the lead to me moving out at 16.
Worriesome to your folks? To say the least....
Mature beyond your years? I would have to say yes and no....I was mature enough that I felt like I was being treated like a baby at home but I was immature in thinking that my OWN baby would make that stop...I had him when I was 17...WAY too young....
Wild? Not so much, I didn't go all out with everything, I was more like cattle, part of the herd just to fit in...
Shy? To and extent yes, I had very low self esteem
How did you spend your time? Mostly smoking pot...all my friends did it, so I did it too...even though I hated the way it made me feel...other than that, I spent my time staying up all night and sleeping all day
Out of curiosity, how many of you knew "what you wanted to be when you grew up" and accomplished it? I didn't know then, I barely know now and I'm not "anything" yet lol...not to say I haven't accomplished anything yet, I just don't have a career...
How many times did you change your mind? About a million...when I was really little, I wanted to be a nurse...and I wanted to be a nurse until I realized that I would have to deal with people who vomit from time to time...I'm an emetophobe, so, me and vommiting, dont' get along very well! Then I wanted to be a veterinarian...then discovered I have allergies to just about any animal with hair/, not so much anymore. When I had my son, I started watching A Baby Story and discovered Midwifery...and wanted to do that until I discovered that some women throw up while they're in labour....see above. Right now, I'm playing around with the idea of something surrounding weddings....a dress shop or a consultant or renting out centrepieces and making crystal bouquets and favours.....who knows.
Wow....I made that answer really long!
Do you think your kid self would approve of you now? I would definitely approve of myself now, however, two years ago? Not so much. Glad things have changed!

I have a new banner!!

Thanks so much to BohoMom for creating my AWESOME new banner!!!

Sunday, November 18, 2007

Thank you!

Thank you to all those who commented on my Sunday Scribblings. It was very nice to read all the wonderful things you all posted!

I have a great friend who posted an entry about my and my surrogacy can read it here. And for the most part, the responses were much like they were on my own posts about my journey.

However, there are a couple of comments posted about surrogates and "selling babies".

It's SO hard to hear that kind of thing when you know the joy it's bringing to the parents of the babies you're bringing into this world.

There were also comments about adoption and how that's the better option for those who can't have children.

While adoption is a WONDERFUL option for some, it is NOT so wonderful for others. Which is why people seek out egg donors or surrogates. Some people (myself included) aren't totally sure that they could care for a child who is not their own in the same way they would if that child WAS their own.

There are tons of loving, caring people out there who have been waiting YEARS to adopt...and that's wonderful...but this world will never have a shortage of children waiting to be adopted, even if everyone waiting was given TWO children as soon as they asked.

It is not the be all and end all answer for those with fertility issues to adopt.

Anyway, instead of getting on a soap box on my friends blog comments, I figured I should bring it over here!

Apparently Social Services is the same everywhere...

What a HORRIBLE thing to do to a baby!!!

So sad...I feel for that mom and baby.

12 inches of skirt

Really? Are they really arguing about how long a skirt is?

I generally have to side with the employer on this one. They would not issue a uniform that is provocative...I would assume that it's pretty tasteful being the business that it is.

Living in Canada, and being employed in Canada...I really think that she should put on the uniform as it has been issued and go to work, or, quit and get another job that allows her to dress as her religion requires her to.

If I said that my religion requires that I wear jeans and a t-shirt would I get away with wearing it to work if there was a uniform? Probably not.

That article talks about how this woman has racked up debt on her credit card and that she's applied for unemployment but they've denied her request because she's not technically unemployed...she can go back to work, if she puts on the shorter skirt or the pants that are part of the uniform...I can't feel bad for someone that CAN go to work but chooses not to because "God says her skirt should be longer" *rolling eyes*

Sunday Scribblings (just a little early? lol)

The topic: I carry

What do I carry? Precious cargo. Snuggled in to the moist, warm fluffy lining of my uterus. I carry a very much wanted baby for two people who would have been unable to be parents otherwise. It is a very important task. It is something I take very seriously....

I carry someone so loved by their parents...they have no idea what is about to occur for them. Carrying out this task makes my heart swell with joy for everyone involved....I can't describe the happiness that surrounds this little baby who is no bigger than the head of a pin at the moment! How incredible that I'm able to do this......

I had my first ultrasound today to determine if there were one or two babies in there...and:

My intended parents are expecting ONE BABY!!!!!

I have another ultrasound on the 23rd at 2pm...I can't wait! We should be able to see a heartbeat by then (there wasn't one today because it's too early).

I'll update again soon!!

Had my blood test...

and my number was 219! Which is awesome for those of you who aren't really familiar with beta numbers :) Last year when I was pregnant with the twins (my first surrogacy) my number was 1750!!! So I'm thinking I'm just pregnant with one this time *wipes brow* WHEW!

How is everyone?

I've not seen anything in the news lately that's pissed me off so much that I felt the need to write here so I'm now asking you...

What would you like to see me write about? Any burning questions you would like to know the answer to??? Let's hear em!!!

Ready? GO!!!!!!!!!!!

Mercy Killing/Right-to-Die

Inspired by

Do we have the right to end our lives if the quality has be severely compromised?

Should someone else be held legally responsible if we've asked them to end or help end our life?

This is a subject that I tend to sit on the fence about really but I want to know how others feel about it.

Watching my father suffer with Lung Cancer for months and knowing that the treatments that they were giving him were not really helping, I had thought about this....especially after my cousins son, upon learning that is Great Uncle Bill was really sick and going to die relatively soon, asked her, "Mom, are they going to put Uncle Bill down?"

Such a heavy statement from an 8 year old. When she told him that we don't do that to other humans, just to animals, he was apalled. I can't remember the exact words he used but he said something along the lines of 'we won't let our animals suffer but we let each other suffer?'...and it made perfect sense to me!

Why is ok for us to not let our animals suffer any terminal illness or compromised quality of life due to old age, but not our loved ones??

Why is it so horrible to want them to rest in peace rather than suffer in life? Especially when they've expressed that they would rather not be alive anymore because they are in pain...why is it so surprising that they would feel this way?

I really feel that our own selfishness of not wanting to let a loved one go is the reason we can't imagine doing this to our loved ones.

What do you think? Should terminally ill and geratric patients with no quality of life left be able to make a decision like this? And if they are mentally incapacitated, should their immediate loved ones and sole caregivers be able to make this decision for them?

And if so, where do we draw the line?

Survey Says?

Well, they've decided. We will see how the 3 little follies look in the morning...if there aren't anymore to join those 3 lonely follies, we will cancel this cycle and move on to the next one...hopefully it will yeild more eggs. If not and the same thing happens, we will move on to donor eggs. Send lots of eggly thoughts please!!!

Kinda sad news

Well, as you know we're in the middle of cycling for IVF transfer. My intended mother (aka IM) started her medications a few days ago to make her produce a bunch of eggs...only it hasn't really worked all that well. There are only 3 mature follicles, and for those of you that don't know much about cycling, just because there are follicles, doesn't mean there are eggs.

So, it looks like we will be using an egg donor and if that's the case, we are definitely delayed by a month or more :(

I was hoping to be peeing on pregnancy tests in 2.5 weeks! I don't think that will be happening now...IM was going to talk to her husband about what they were going to do, either chance it with her three follicles and get nothing or just wait and use a donor.

At this point I think they will choose a donor...but I'll come and update when I know more!

Friday, October 12, 2007

Sorry it's been a few...

But I bring you this...I will post more about my thoughts on it later....but it's pretty eye opening and really not that far fetched.

How much is 2% of barely anything?

As a former Ontario Works recipient, I still feel the need to soapbox about stuff like this.

In December 2007, the Ontario government will increase OW recipients monthly income by 2%. This is a joke to most, really, because they barely get anything as it is, and then they add 2%....for example, while on OW I received the following for myself and my two boys:

Basic Allowance: 559
+Maximum Shelter: 583
Total: 1142
-Child tax benefit clawback 122
-Support I never recieved 50 (I was supposed to be recieving it but never did and OW took it off my cheque anyway)
Total OW income $970

$970.00 x 2% = $19.40

Nineteen dollars and forty cents. That's how much extra I would recieve on my cheque per month were I still on OW.

A single person on OW receives $548.

$548.00 x 2% = $10.96

A whopping eleven dollars per month. Two bags of milk. 2 or 3 bus rides. A box of cereal and 1 litre of milk.

It's just ridiculous that they've increased it by TWO percent!

Yet their pays have been increased by 25%.

I don't know how they sleep at night. I invite them all to live for just ONE month on the income of an OW recipient. They'd cry! They wouldn't make it to the end of the month and still have money left.....

A case of America laying the blame?

I agree with Stephen Harper that of course the problem does require a solution....but do we REALLY have more terrorist organizations than any other countries in the world??? Or is America looking for somewhere to place the blame???

Hello my name is Amie, and I am a surrogate mother.

So, when BoMom introduced me on her blog, she mentioned that I am a surrogate mom. So, I thought I should introduce that part of my life and mention it here on my own blog.

I gave birth to twin girls in November 2006 for friends of mine. Though we had some rough spots during the pregnancy (with bleeding and LOTS of contractions) and ultimately and to my dismay, a c-section at the end cuz the little buggers were breech, it truly was an incredible and amazing experience and I am proud and happy that I was able to complete a family just by lending my uterus.

In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I am doing it again!

So right now, I am on a drug called Lupron (which puts me in temporary menopause, and happens to make me incredibly bitchy :S) and am waiting for my cycle day one to start my estrogen pill. My intended mother (the lady whom will have her eggs harvested, fertilized and placed into my uterus because she no longer has one) will be starting her follicle stimulating drug in about 10 days or so...this will make her ovaries work over time and produce lots of eggs at once so that when they go in to retrieve them, there won't be just one.
Once retrieved, the eggs will be put into a petrie dish with my Intended Father's sperm to fertilize. Then we receive the "fertility report", meaning how many eggs fertilized and ultimately how many embryo's we have to work with. Three days after retrieval, we will transfer two of those little embryo's right into my warm, fluffy uterus. :)

So that transfer, we're hoping, should take place somewhere around October 20th...and if you're all interested, I will keep you up to date with what's going on and let you know for sure when they've been transferred, my first positive pregnancy test (because I test like a mad woman!), ultrasound confirmation, etc. and so on.

Let me know if you're not interested in reading about that and would rather I stick to my soapy boxes. :D

Good for you Mike!!

I just LOVE it when real people get to have their say!! Way to go, Mike! I am sending lots of recovery prayers to you!!

In light of the upcoming election, I think it's important that we see things like this in the news. I think it's important for people to make an informed decision when voting and more so even that they actually get out there and vote. If you don't vote, you don't have a say in who runs our country!

Thank you all for the wonderful Welcome!!

And thank you to for introducing me to all her wonderful friends!! I really appreciate the warm welcome :D

Speaking Out Against Poverty!

WHAT A GREAT ARTICLE!!! It's about TIME someone speaks out about the disgusting state that the social assistance recipients are in. It is horrible to know that you will not pay the bills in full on time, and not be able to go to the grocery store and just put "whatever" into the carts without adding up totals before you get to the check out. Hopefully, with this election, SOMETHING will change..........

From: The Welland Tribune

Speaking out about poverty

"For the record, we are not social assistance losers." With those words, Corinne O'Hara drew an explosive and supportive round of applause from a market square crowd of some 300 people attending yesterday's kNOw Poverty rally.
"We did not make a career choice to be poor or to collect social assistance," O'Hara said. "Nobody chooses to be hungry or struggle to provide the basic necessities of life for themselves and their children."
For a woman with bipolar disorder once afraid to leave her own home, O'Hara was very forthcoming in telling young and old that the plight of the poor has for too long been overlooked, and that it's time for change.
"Poverty means never having enough money to make it to the end of the month," she said.
"Whether this is to buy groceries or to deal with emergencies, it doesn't matter. The money isn't there for either," O'Hara added.
"Poverty means sleepless nights and anxiety attacks, wondering how you can ever continue to cope.
"It means being exhausted trying to juggle paying bills, buying food and making sure both you and your family have the necessities of life."
O'Hara said it also means living with a stigma attached to social assistance recipients or poor people.
"Children of poor people are still singled out and treated with contempt," she said.
"Poverty means having to deal with the embarrassment of going to the teacher and asking for more time to pay for a school agenda or school photos or something else your child needs, such as new gym shoes or items for school projects.
"Poverty means hearing yourself say over and over to your children, 'I'm sorry, but we can't afford that right now. Maybe later,' knowing that you are lying to them because later never comes."
RenLacourse, who scrapes by to afford medication for diabetes, let alone daily meals, said, "You have to be a survivor in this world."
A back injury forced him out of work. Once collecting $666 a month in disability support, that figure today has dropped to $520.
Linda Parker, also on disability support, too, knows what it's like to be poor.
"I'm lucky if I have $30 left to buy my personal stuff," she said of her monthly allowance.
Once a health-care aide and foster parent, Kim Mino told of how "I sit in fear not knowing where our next meal will come from."
She, too, spoke of the stigma she carries.
"I have been put down, frowned upon, ignored because I am a single mom."
"People are suffering and change must be done," said Nancy Hagar, who also relies on food banks and other means of support to live day to day.
Yesterday's parade of speakers demonstrated courage, a courage buoyed by the support of their neighbours, said Hope Centre executive director Sylvia Berkhout.
"I think the more support they get, the more they're taken seriously," she said.
"They (the poor) are the ones who need to be educating us."
Still, she said, there are some so afraid to speak out, fearing reprisal or being cut off of their government support, that they remain in the shadows.
"I've been blessed, but I've seen a lot of welfare, a lot of poverty," said Bianca Bruni, among demonstrators gathered at market square.
"Everyone should have the same quality of life opportunities."
Bruni was among dozens of people who wrote up questions for provincial election candidates in the Welland riding taking part in debate specifically focused on poverty. It's set for Wednesday night at Notre Dame College School.
"We want poverty to be at the top of their political agenda," said teacher and kNOw Poverty founding member Paul Turner.
The next step, he said, will be for his organization to sit down with the winner of the Oct. 10 vote and talk strategy.
"We have a huge struggle ahead of us."

Catholic Board Defeats Move To Ban HPV Vaccine


Ok, I get the whole "don't be a whore" movement or whatever...however THIS doesn't make ANY sense at all!

Basically they're saying,

"We don't want to promote promiscuity, so we will try to ban this HPV vaccine, because the only way you can get HPV is through sexual activity."

What if a girl is raped? Oh, well, too bad for her, she'll possibly get genital warts and have a higher risk of getting cerivical cancer. *rolling eyes here*

My point of view:

Teens are going to have sex ANYWAY. Whether you give them this shot or not. If they are choosing to have sex or not, the decision most likely won't be swayed by whether or not they're protected from HPV. Just like those teens who decided to have sex anyway and got pregnant...the fact that they COULD get pregnant, didn't sway their decision to get pregnant.

Give them the shot, at least they'll be protected from a virus that could be LIFE ALTERING if they were to get CERVICAL CANCER in the future. It makes no sense to me that the Catholic Board would choose for their girls to have a higher risk of cancer and other illnesses just so they can say they didn't promote promiscuity. They have a lot of other ways they could be premoting abstinance until marriage. This world is a very scary place now and I know if I was a teenager still, I'd be getting the shot. You never know who's lurking in the dark waiting to give you genital warts and cervical cancer just to get their rocks off....withOUT your permission.


Just to introduce! In this blog, I will be "venting" alot of my strong opinions on some contraversial subjects. I invite comments (conflicting views and otherwise) but will not tolerate being disrespected....I am entitled to my own opinion and intend to voice it here where I can remove myself from a heated conversation.

I'm a 27 year-old office assistant with two deliciously yummy little boys aged almost 10 and 3 years. I'm a surrogate mom who gave birth to twins in November and am just about to come up on my second IVF transfer in October. I'm obsessed with weddings and babies and although I'm not engaged, I will probably quite often post new things I've found for my own wedding which I'm hoping will be in Jan 2010.

So enough about me for now, I have to go to work this morning...but I will leave you with this and will come back to write about my opinion a little later on!

Happy SoapBoxing!!
