About Me

My photo
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.

I Wasn't Convinced ...

... nor was I making any predictions but guess my labs were indicating a lil more than just a solid pregnancy.
TWINS!!


We are 5w5d today and did not see any cardiac activity but are hopeful to see heartbeats at the follow up next Thursday. They are smooshed in there pretty tightly together so the u/s tech was having a lil difficulting getting a good image of the yolk sacs/fetal poles but she assured us the gestational sacs are measuring on target and all looks great.

We are all very excited but still cautious, my IPs have experienced loses and as many of you that followed along with my previous journey know, I lost a twin 8 weeks into my last pregnancy so ... not quite ready to start buying doubles of everything but, we are all very excited and pray both continue to develop. K&S are expecting not one but TWO babies this fall!!! Our due date is October 13th.

Congrats! I have recently found your blog. I transferred the day after you and too am pregnant. My first beta was 349 and 2nd beta was 1200. I dont have an ultrasound until the 28th though and it is killing me to know how many are in there! What are your symptoms? Sometimes I feel pregnant and sometimes I don't and it worries me. Just wondered what you are feeling being that we are the same amount pregnant!

Woo-hoo. Good news. Let's hope for more good news soon. :-)

(And just for fun my two words to "prove I'm not a robot" are "utrierc" which reminds me of uterus and "committed" which is what you are!)
