I just wanted to say hello!

I am brand new to this board and relatively new to this whole process. I have a teenage son (adopted as an older child), and we're expecting a baby boy (carried by my WONDERFUL little sister) in December! I'm 30 and have never had a baby nor breastfed, but I'm really excited for both.

I did the accelerated protocol and am about to start pumping this weekend. I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions, but for now I'm off to read as much as I can.

Good luck! I think this process is much easier for surrogacy, because you don't have to worry about a failed match if you start pumping ahead of time and you know your due date long in advance. Did you start pumping yet?

I started this weekend. It's a little earlier than originally planned, but the bc made me so sick, I decided 2 packs was all I could manage. I don't know that I really had as significant changes as I wished I had, but I'm hoping that constant pumping and Domperidone will make up the difference.
