“How will you give it up” – The answer to this question, my friends, is simple…. It’s not my baby and I am not “giving up” anything, I am simply giving.
11 weeks and counting! Well two weeks has gone by, and it has been a rough two weeks. The first week karma decided that if I took two days off work it would bite me with a stomach virus. I ended up in the hospital and two bags of fluid later I was released to go and spent 16 hrs asleep.
Well, just like that 6 months have gone by. It took 4 transfers to finally get a little one to stick…as of today I am officially off all hormones! Yahoo!
So in 2008 my mother, father, brother, and myself all picked up and moved to Vermont. To a hotel of all places. Well it wasn’t that bad. I made friends with the night clerk and swam all the time, got my own room. So it really wasn’t all bad. I had a few dates with some guys.
Very happy to announce surrobaby girl!!! She arrived Tuesday May 14, 2019 at 1:51pm. She was 7 lbs 9oz and 21 inches. By far my largest. It was one of my more complicated labors even though it was only 17 minutes. Let's just say when I thought she was out, she actually wasn't, so two contractions worth of pushing.
39.1 weeks today wow! I was supposed to have a membrane sweep yesterday to hopefully bring on labor as it worked so well with my two little girls. In addition, I was already having 10 min contractions but all fake labor.
Ok, so it has been a while since I have been able to write. It may seem like there is all the time in the world for being able to write a three minute paragraph, but over the last couple of months it has been one type or busy on top of another type of busy.
So I am at 28 weeks, it's getting closer and closer to due date. Nerves are setting in of course, not so much about giving baby to her family, but the labor part. I get flashbacks of labors from my previous ones, and with family eh no problem. With the intended mother, even though she has been through the labor pains before, I feel like I may be embarrassed, but if you have ever gave birth. That may fly out the window when it comes time.
Half way there! Yay 20 weeks, I'm half way there. Just had the ultrasound and baby girl is growing well. Weighing in about 10 oz and the size of a mango (6.5 inches). The baby likes to beat me up, and my hips and ligaments are stretching, so those are sore, but in general doing well.
Happy Turkey Day! Its Thanksgiving day, it's crazy to think that this surro journey started a year ago! After three failed transfers finally the last little embryo that was left took, now as of tomorrow I'll be 15 weeks pregnant! I'm finally sporting a baby bump.
