Hey, I've been meaning to ask you how the milk issue has been. Is it gone yet? How long did it take? I think it would make me really sad. But then, I don't think I could be a surrogate in the first place.

OK - he's not your son, and it's his fathers decisions...but really...if the baby grew in your abdomen, is it really "donor" milk? Try not to get a communicable disease between hospital discharge and getting home to pump! They crazy.

You make a point but the Father's chose to feed formula and if I were to pump it would have truely been a donation for other NICU babies.

I have decided to continue to pump and currently I am storing and freezing. I am also looking into a donor program. If that does not work out, I will find someone else to donate too. I know quite a few people who know people, ya know?

That makes more sense after you clarified. Thank you for sharing your pregnancy and your birth story. It's a cool story.
