X Marx the Fox
Grey Fox is a data geek currently living in Seattle with her partner in crime, a cancer fighting superhero (a.k.a. pediatric oncologist). Her days are filled with healthcare data and her nights with wine and cats. Both the wine and the cats like to help with her writing. No, really. They do.
Grey has been actively trying to procure a tiny human for more than three years but the wee Fox embryos are in need of a miniscule GPS. The kits get a little lost and implant where they shouldn't. She has survived not one, but two, ectopic pregnancies. The likely reason for this, aside from the lack of miniscule GPSes available to aid implantation, is Adenomyosis. Throw in some Premature Ovarian Failure (POF) and Endometriosis and there is a wacky party going on that makes highly trained specialists scratch their heads and utter words like "anomalous", "wonky", "baffled" and "swiss cheese" when attempting to describe her reproductive organs. The docs have advised no more pregnancy attempts as the chance of a third ectopic is simply too high. Surrogacy may be around the corner since there are two frozen foxes left.
When she is not writing about infertility on Fertility Authority, you can find her blogging at Fox In The Henhouse, tweeting as @FurrowedFox or monitoring the Ectopic board on Fertile Thoughts as BC-foxinabox.

Have you moved? Have you changed fertility clinics? Are you thinking of moving? Are you worried about what happens to your embryos if you move?
It can be emotional to move your embryos. You worry that something will happen during transit. I cannot promise you that it won’t. But I can tell you what’s involved and how it’s done.
I’ve moved mine. Twice.

So… you think maybe you need a surrogate. How do you find a person willing to carry a baby for 9 months and then hand it over to you? I won’t lie - it’s not easy. Any of the following options will work:

So...you’re thinking about surrogacy or have decided to go ahead with it. You think you’ve got the buns covered but you need to find an oven for baking them. How do you do that?

This is the next lecture in this Surrogacy 101 series. To read the first one click here: Surrogacy 101 - What is surrogacy?
Most people get sticker shock when they read that surrogacy can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 or more (although it can be done for less). Below is a breakdown of costs associated with surrogacy and when you look at it line by line you can see where you can perhaps save money and also where you may not have any control over the cost. (Note: costs are estimates for the U.S. and may differ from state to state as do laws regulating surrogacy)
