About Me

I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.

8 Weeks

Today marks 8 weeks and so far so good. I've actually been feeling pretty decent this past week. The fatigue isn't as bad and the queasiness has been minimal. There has been just enough to remind me that I'm preggo but nothing awful, so praying these babies are still growing as they should. Oh how I wish we could get a peek at them every week just to know for sure! My belly hasn't grown much yet. I know they are still just teeny tiny (about the size of a small grape now) but I thought with twins I'd be feeling a bit more "bloated" than I am. Maybe I won't be as big as I thought I might be in the first trimester after all. I have my maternity clothes on standby just in case though.

My first appointment with the OB is Wednesday. It should be a rather boring visit, just meeting with one of the nurses to review my chart, history, some lab work, etc. My IPs aren't coming out for this one but are hoping to make as many as possible.
