About Me

Caledonia, Northern Illinois, United States
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.

We have heartbeats !!

At 6w3d babies are looking great. Baby A measured 6w1d with a heartbeat of 124 and Baby B measured 6w3d, right on track, with a heartbeat of 111. The RE assured us that all was fine and even released me to my OB with instructions to continue meds till week 10. So now my appointments will be out here in the Rockford area, woohoo!!! My IPs are interested in making as many appointments as possible so they'll be heading out this way now. Looking forward to them finally meeting all the girls and visiting our home too.

In other news, I started my aqua aerobics class last night, it was nice and I'm sure I'll enjoy it a lot come December or so when I start to feel huge.

As of now I have most of the typical symptoms, fatigue, queasiness, sore boobs and bloating. I was honest with IM when she asked how I was feeling and she apologized for making me feel so icky. I told her it was my pleasure.
