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.

18 weeks

So not to much to report, things have been quiet which is great. We had yet another follow up visit today, Baby Boy looked great. His heartrate was 141 and he was moving about and appeared comfy and cozy all snuggled in. The other news is that the bleed has reabsorbed but the undeveloped embryo still lingers. The doctor told me since everything looked good I could get back to normal life; time for my hubby, exercise (with in limits of course) and just enjoy the rest of the second trimester.

My weight gain came up, ugh ... I've put on something like 12lbs in just the last 8 weeks. So glad that she ok'd some more activity, hopefully getting back to the gym will keep me from gaining much more to quickly.

IM and I got to chit chat for a bit at a coffee shop after the appointment. I always love spending time with her, our relationship has really blossomed over the past several months and I feel like I can really be myself and enjoy what has become an very special friendship.
