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.

16 weeks (& gender news!!!)

Sugar and Spice & Everything nice is all I've ever known so it is a little weird to me that this time I'm carrying a BOY!!!

The follow up appt went great. I thought it was gonna be just IM today but turned out IF was able to come after all so when the tech asked if they wanted to know the gender answer was YES! This lil guy wasn't shy at all, showed us all his goods a couple of times. Heart rate was 141 and he looked perfect. Twin A is reabsorbing some and the OB described it as a "scab" on the sac of Twin B. We still aren't 100% in the clear, it could pull away from the uterine lining and cause more bleeding but all is looking pretty good. I'll go back in another week for yet another u/s and if all looks good from there we'll get back on a regular OB schedule.

I think it is all becoming more and more real to IM. They still don't plan to tell anyone till Cmas but she did admit to doing some window shopping online the other night. Now that we know the gender maybe she'll be doing more than just window shopping. So excited for them!!!
