Well, it has been a looooooong 3 weeks. I hate these horrid things and can't wait to get them off. I can already say that there is no way in heck I am going to wear them for 2 years. On days where I talk a lot, my mouth feels like I have razor blades in it. Regardless of how bad they feel, I love how they are providing quick results. My top teeth look so much better. The one tooth on the top right in the photo, has almost completely tucked into where it belongs. That was fast! Look at how crooked my wire was at the beginning and how straight it is now. My bottom teeth don't seem to be doing anything though. Hmmmm... I will see the ortho next week and I hope he will reassure me that those teeth will indeed move. They are crowded upfront.

Ok, so I totally changed my mind on ceramic Clarity braces at the last minute. I was already in the chair and they had the box of ceramics on the table next to me when I began drilling them with lots of questions. The answers didn't make me happy so I chose to go with metal. The reasons were:
Some people pay more for ceramic but my ortho charges the same either way. I really wish that the ceramics didn't have so many cons because I really wanted them, but I am happy with the metal. Since I have metal, it was easy for me to go with colorful ligatures since there is no way to hide the fact that I am in braces.
The only bad thing is that I cannot eat properly. My molars are so sore that biting isn't something that I can do as of yet. It has been weird eating soft foods all the time. Oh well, it will all be worth it in the end. Heck, I was having a hard time eating before braces because my molars had just enough space between them that they caught food every time I ate. It was terribly painful and the main reason that I opted for braces in the first place.

3. Leota Haylee Abstract Chevron Print Swing Skirt-This skirt is incredibly comfortable. Lovely colors and pretty design. It has a stretchy waistband, making it a great piece for pregnancy.
4. Pomelo Corinna Striped Heather Dolman Top- I already have this top in blue/black, but I was still thrilled to see this one in my box. It is so soft and comfy. The cut is flattering on everyone that I have seen on the web. It's a perfect top.
5. 41Hawthorn Montgomery Chevron Cross-Fit Top- This top is super soft and the color is beautiful. The only thing I don't like about it is the fabric can move rather easily to show off more skin than I want to. It needs a snap in the chest area to hold it closed.

I have a little secret to reveal. I know I have been absent from my blog for a long time now but I will soon be updating regularly again thanks to surrogacy journey #4. Yep, you read that right. If you are a Facebook friend, you have known about this for several months. I didn't want to announce it on my blog until I knew for sure it was going to happen. Why am I pursuing this again? I am totally insane, I guess, lol. To be honest, I am trying to end my surrogacy life on the best note possible. My last surrogacy was very stressful and hard to deal with (hence the reason that there are very few posts on my blog for journey #3). Even though that journey was rough, I made amends with the mother and I miss her muchly after all has been said and done. The conversations that we had after the birth should have happened early in the pregnancy. I had no idea how many life struggles she was dealing with during the IVF cycle. If had known then, what I know now, things would have been very different and I hate that.
Anyway, I am working with a wonderful agency this time around and they have made everything go so smoothly. All of my previous journeys were independent so it is nice letting someone else do all the work. I am matched with an international couple and they are going to be awesome. I begin meds on 6/27 and we are looking at transferring around 8/9.
