I'm a wife, mom, and gestational surrogate. I've been blessed to be able to have 2 beautiful daughters of my own and 2 cute little surro babes for IPs. With the support of my WONDERFUL family and friends, I'm doing it again!! Follow me on my journey...

Whoa Momma!!

I was getting in the shower the other night and my 5 year old daughter barges in (as usual), but this time she kinda paused when she opened the door and proceeded to say "WHOA MOMMA! You're tummy is HUGE!"....I couldn't do anything but laugh. You should have seen the look on her face, it was priceless. I wonder what she'll say when it really gets big!? She's about the only person I'd take that comment from; she's never been one to hold back exactly what she thinks!
Anywho, I just wanted to share that, since it made me chuckle.
Here's a pic of my "Little Princess"

And just because, here's a pic of my "Big Princess" ☺

On the surro front, our NT scan was good, no sign of Downs! So hooray for that!! Although, my IP's and I were a little less than enthused by our u/s tech's lack of interest. My IPs and my IM's parents were all at the appointment, so it was obvious that everyone was excited for the chance to see the baby. Well apparently, "Little Miss Sunshine" didn't pick up on that because she came in, put the probe on my tummy, did the measurement, and that was it. Literally. There was no "here's the head, here's the arms...", just a 2 second comment that the measurement was good, printed out a couple "pictures" that looked more like blobs and then she left. My IM's mom was so funny; she was like "well, that was lame!" Lol! Thankfully, the Dr came in and did another u/s and we were able to see more of the baby and even got to see the profile. And baby was moving all around!
We all went to dinner afterward at a yummy Mexican restaurant! Mmmmm!! Baby likes enchiladas!  It was nice to be able to meet my IM's parents and get to chill with everyone. I wish Kevin would have been able to go though. :-(

Anyway, I'll leave you with my 12 week belly shot...I don't think there's any difference from 11 weeks. TTYL!
