About Me

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.

We Have An Overachiever

Well time to share the news - we have a BFP! K and I had agreed that I'd test Tuesday morning. I was totally preparing myself for a negative since we wouldn't even be 5dpt yet - having an afternoon transfer threw everything off but - to our surprise it was POSITIVE at only 4.5dp5dt.

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about a positive this time after the downward spiral of last cycle. Initially I thought I'd be a little guarded but, I honestly can't help but be excited and I'm feeling very optimistic. I love how K, despite all the disappointment she's faced over the last few years, is still as excited as if this were the first time and doesn't let the past keep her down. Can I just say what an amazingly strong woman she is! For now we are happy for the good news but remain cautious too as we realize how quickly things can change.

I'll leave you with a view of yesterdays tests. The 4.5dp5dt line is light, but totally there without having to strain your eyes (enlarge for best view). I didn't even get a positive test this early with Baby G, at 4.5dpt with that pregnancy the HPT was stark white and as you may know that pregnancy started out as twins. ;) Very hopeful of what is to come.

Congratulations K&S!!! Let's pray this one sticks!!!! Beta is scheduled for Monday (2/6).

Early AM test @ 4.5dp5dt a faint line.
Digi says PREGNANT @ 4.75dp5dt

Same test as above - 4.5dp5dt @ 5:00 AM - and - official 5dp5dt @ 1:00 PM. What a difference already!
