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...
My Dr appt on Friday was quick and easy (which we like). My belly is measuring right on track, BP is good and I've gained a total of 20 lbs so far. The Dr seems pleased with the way everything is going, so that's great! Dr. Brown was so sweet at our appointment, he told us how excited he was to be a part of this journey and how much he looks forward to seeing us at our appointments. It's really nice to have a Dr that feels this way and is genuinely happy for M&P.
As for how I'm feeling...not to bad. Still having lots of lower back pain, but that's to be expected when you're carrying around an extra 20 lbs! The back pain has seemed to intensify lately though, so I've been using a heating pad, taking warm baths and using lots of pillows while I'm sleeping. I slept in our recliner last night with about 4 pillows, that helped, but it sucks trying to change positions!
Our next appointment is March 21st; I'll be 32 weeks. I think I'll start having more frequent OB visits after that one.
Oh! And my IPs talked about getting a 4-D ultrasound done, so hopefully we will get that scheduled soon. I've never had one, so this will be a 1st for all of us! ☺
