Ugh...testing is so expensive...

It is really a humbling experience to receive the billings in the mail for some of the various testing required to be a surrogate.  The reproductive clinic requires quite the battery of tests to make sure that any person who will be acting as a surrogate is fit to do so.  While these tests are all important, this is only the first and minor component of surrogacy ... and even here before we make a plan to get pregnant, the costs mount up really quickly.  It saddens me to think about how expensive it all is.

As a woman, the ability to get pregnant and have a baby seems like a "right".. something that should just be able to happen ... but sadly that is not reality for all :-(

Humbling is a good word for it. I looked at the yellow slip I turned in after seeing the RE and holy wow the last time I spent thirty minutes in the RE's office getting my uterus checked out and a blood draw it cost my IP's a grand and that was nothing compared to what is to come. Humbling for sure.
