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...

37 weeks!

That's it, I'm officially a whale.
Much to my dismay, I'm STILL outgrowing my maternity clothes. Most of my shirts look like crop tops at this point...good thing it's springtime, crop tops are in this season. No? I tried.
I'm having serious trouble getting a good night’s sleep thanks my larger than usual size (my limbs keep falling asleep under my body’s crushing weight), Miss B's jolt-you-awake-caliber kicks, bladder calls (I swear 36 times a night!) & good ol' Braxton-Hicks contractions.

I woke up Tuesday morning with a bad headache and my right hand was so swollen that I couldn't even make a fist. No bueno. I've had a slight headache for past few days, but Tuesday was the worst. I'll make sure to mention this to my Dr at our appt on Friday, I know these can be signs of pre-eclampsia; hopefully it's not though. We're almost done, let's get there complication free!

Anywho, here's my 37 week "bump" AKA mountain. (Which my dog, Sasha loves to lie on)

I'll update after Friday's appointment!

Oh...sorry to hear it's getting tough. Hang in there. You're doing great and you know it'll be worth it all when you see the baby with her IPs.
