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...

I'm here!

I realize that when I get "anonymous" messages telling me that I have been MIA, it must mean that it's way past time for an update from me!

I have no excuse. Just laziness.

Good news though! (see, no news IS good news!) Yes, I'm STILL pregnant :) (This is seriously the longest pregnancy ever...I'm sure I've been knocked up with this one for at least 527 days)

I'm 58 weeks 33w3d today and in all honesty, the days are dragging. I'm not sure if it's because this is my first pregnancy that I've been THIS pregnant during the summer months (IN TEXAS!) or if it's just because my uterus is old. Okay, so 30 isn't "old", but damn, this will be my 5th birth! I know some 30 year olds that still haven't decided what they want to be when they "grow up". My dear old "ute" has been workin' hard and I think she's telling me she needs a break!

So here's a quick(ish) update of all that's happened since I last posted:<-- --horrible="" horrible="" i="" know.="" nbsp="" p="">

  • I passed the glucose screening, so yay! No gestational diabetes. 
  • We had MaterniT21 testing done (rules out any chromosomal abnormalities) and everything came back perfectly! 
  • I started going to the chiropractor on a weekly/bi-weekly basis and it has made a world of difference! 
  • I also started sleeping in our recliner around 28 weeks. I did this with the last pregnancy and although I hate having that big ass recliner crowding up my room, man is it comfy! It also helps me not to have horrible acid reflux because I'm sleeping at an incline. 
  • I've gained a total of 18lbs (well, as of 3 weeks ago). I'm almost 100% certain that I've gained 50lbs since that appointment. (I go back this week)
  • The parents sent some recordings of them talking to "Snow", so he gets to listen to them and learn their voices. ♥
  • The dreaded "morning" AKA all day sickness finally subsided around 18 weeks BUT now I'm having digestive issues. (see, I'm old!) So, I'm going to try some probiotics.
I think that's really the rundown of what's been happening, in a nutshell. See, you didn't miss anything exciting. It's been quite an uneventful pregnancy, aside from my constant uncomfortableness. (Is that even a word? Whatever, it is now)

We have another (routine) OB appt this Thursday and the IPs are flying in, so afterward, we are going to the hospital so that they can take the grand tour. That's always exciting to me!

I'll leave you with all of my bump pics up 'til now. TTYL!
