Breaking the Ice with a Gestational Surrogate

The Next Family

By: Kelly Rummelhart

I’ve been blogging about being a gestational surrogate for three years now and still I have no idea how to get started this time around. Should I introduce myself? Share a belly picture? Jump into a series of posts that lead you through my very first journey as a surrogate mother? Start at Present Day and work backwards? Go get pregnant really quick so I have more to write about?

It makes me think about various ice breakers I’ve participated in over the years and how maybe it might work here. So here we go . . .

Two Truths and a Lie

I have given birth to 7 children, 4 of which aren’t mine.

I have “retired” my uterus and won’t carry any more babies for anyone, ever.

I have been a surrogate for a “Celebrity Couple”.

Have You Ever?

Have you ever been a surrogate for a straight couple?
No.

Have you ever had a failed transfer?
No.

Have you ever breastfed your surrogate babies?
Yes.

Have you ever wanted to keep one of your surrogate babies?
No.

Is it working? Are you relaxed? Quickly getting to know me? Energized and ready to read my blog every week? Yes? Perfect! I know it’s just the beginning and in no time, you’ll know me, maybe even love me . . . too soon? Oh, okay. But I bet you will because I can already feel a connection. Hell, by the end of this, I may carry your baby.

Oh, and P.S. – the second one was the lie.
