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.

First Beta

As I shared this morning we had our first of three blood draws today.  The clinic is happy with a number of 25 or higher as confirmation of a positive pregnancy - our number today at 12dp3dt/15dpo is 61.

I'll be honest, I was anticipating a higher number seeing as we had the faintest positive nearly a week ago already.  However, it's not so much about the number as it is the doubling time so, we wait for the repeat labs which will be either Thursday or Friday and keep fingers crossed we see a nice increase.

Grow bean grow!!
