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.

36 weeks

Ok ok as "good" as I am at being pregnant and regardless of how smooth the last several months have gone I think I'm ready to be done. During my own pregnancies by this point there was no doubt but it's a little bittersweet this time around. I'll be totally honest though, I'm getting uncomfortable and ready to have the "old me" back and ready to refocus and renew myself and I can't forget to mention how excited I am for A&T to have their baby boy in their arms!! OMG that moment we have been waiting for is just weeks away!

I'm looking forward to spending time with IPs this weekend. They'll be celebrating the impending arrival of their son with two baby showers and I am so honored to have been invited. Jason and I are staying overnight instead of making two trips into the city, I can't wait to just hang out with IM for a bit, hoping Lil G is cooperative and lets her see/feel how wiggly he is during the evening hours.

I'm also beginning to get anxious and excited about delivery day. It's hard to imagine it is only 3 to 4 weeks away. We've decided to let nature lead the way and wait for labor to come on it's own so it will be a surprise to see when it finally all happens. I've been having frequent Braxton Hicks contractions. They've been a bit more intense too, to the point Saturday night that I almost started watching the clock. After I got up and walked around they tapered off though. Won't be to long and it will be the real deal!
