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.

26 weeks

Well we are in a double digit countdown now. 99 days or less to go! I can hardly believe how quickly it has gone by.

As the 6th month ends and we approach the third trimester we've been working on getting some things organized. I think I mentioned already that the doula has been hired, the PBO is in the works, an appointment to do the hospital tour needs to be set, maybe even taking part in a crash course birthing class and before long we'll be scheduling those weekly appointments.

Really not much to report this week. Baby G is very active and I feel him all the time. He still has plenty of room to flip flop around which makes my whole belly shake. Still waiting for IM to feel these movements, hoping when we see one another in a couple weeks he'll perform for her. I've beginning to feel some Braxton Hicks contractions ... it's practice time!
