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.

35 weeks

Today was another appointment day and it was uneventful and quick. Hoping baby went through a lil growth spurt because I was up a few pounds ... I'd feel better knowing we shared the gain. ;) Everything else looked good, his heart rate was 144 bpm and the doctor reminded us that in two weeks we'll be full term (37wks) so after that if I go into labor the show is on! Wow, when did we get so close?!?! Today I also had the Group B Step test done...oh joy! Although I've been negative in all my previous pregnancies that could change so once results come back we'll know if antibiotics are necessary before delivery. We'll be doing a final u/s for growth and a cervical check at our upcoming appointment second week of April. The baby showers are just days before that so hoping he stays put till then so A&T have some time to organize and prepare all the new things for his arrival and to ensure he is fully "baked".

Yesterday a few of my closest friends, my mom & sis and IM enjoyed brunch together in "Celebration of Motherhood". It was so nice for those that have been my support system throughout this journey to have the opportunity to meet her and share their excitement and best wishes. Thanks again to all you special ladies, you mean the world to me.

Just weeks to go!
