I've been feeling a lot of discomfort in my legs and Girly bits (tmi I know). I am also getting all kinds of twingy uterine pains, more like stretching than cramping.

My doctor sent me for an hcg test and they said I tested fine and for 3 weeks gestation.
congrats! my edd is the 4th too. although I usually go over. welcome!

Same here :-( I lost the weight, but I was still working on the tummy fat and skin. I want to lose another 20lbs before our vacation next year...now we will NOT be going to Mexico in February, lol.

I matched through an agency but its been more of a headache then I expected. So, if i do it again, I will likely go independent.

I remember thinking that with my last pregnancy, and my husband assured me I am "always" that crampy!

I'm not ready to gain weight either. I just lost quite a few pounds, but not where I'd like to be. I don't want to loose too much before the transfer though.

Re: Jan 2013 DDC

yeah agencies are such pains in the arses, lol. I used the same one for both of my journeys, though there was one in between the two wher eI matched through another agency, it did not go well. I got lied to by omission and almost had a panic attack when I met the IM ("intended mom" for non surros reading) She had severe anorexia, and I had no idea. I met her face to face, and I did not know what she had, some form of cancer, or something. She looked 80 years old. Only later in the evening did my husband and I put it all together. You think it would have been obvious, but I had never seen anyone is real like with severe anorexia. I had to decline working with them because I felt so lied to about that.... anyway, I would still use my same agency, I just really like having a large company to "back me" and back the IPs as well. They even paid for my husband and I to go to Italy, it was only for a day, and we went to speak about working with our Italian IPs and being a surrogate, spread the word basically. But I wouldn't have gotten to do that if I hadn't worked with them. so where are you in your cycle? and whats your med protocol?

Well I tested yesterday on a dollar tree test and got a very faint line. Tested again this am on a generic first response and found myself with another faint line. Period is due in 2 days so it should darken some.

For me, the dollar tree test was a darker line than the FRER (taken a few hours later). I was surprised.

Yes, not sure why I bought those ones. The cheaper ones are always better! Bought an .88 cent test from Walmart and it, too, was darker than the generic FRER.
