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...

36 weeks ((apparently this never posted))

So, the hospital tour went well, the IPs got their questions answered and got to see where their precious little boy will be born ☺

My Dr's appointment also went well. BP was good, weight was good (I've gained a total of 19 lbs so far). I swear that scale is broken because I feel like I've gained 653 lbs :\

I'm ready to have this baby!! This has been one of THE hardest pregnancy for me. I was sick for a million years and I still get sick occasionally, even now. I can't sleep, but I always feel sleepy!! (go figure!) I just feel TIRED, physically and mentally. I guess my body is saying "no more babies, Krystal!"....which kind of makes me sad, but I know I have to hang up the ol' uterus one day lol.
I think I'll try to find a way to still remain a part of the surrogacy community even though I will no longer be a carrier. I just love every aspect of surrogacy and I enjoy the friendships that I've been able to make along the way as well.

Anywho, my next appointment was supposed to be this week but my doc is on vacay, so I don't go back until August 11th. I'll have a sonogram to check the baby's position and I'll also have my GBS (Group Beta Strep) test done. If I test positive, they'll just treat me with antibiotics once I go into labor, no biggie.

PS. I got to see my 2nd little surro baby this weekend!! Ms. B is getting so big and she's super smart!! She said my name and told me "Happy Birthday".  Melted my heart!!!

I'll let cha know how next week goes. TTYL!!
