Baby is the size of a sweet pea! So yesterday marked the 6 week mark for this pregnancy of E&M’s little baby. This is also the start of a new blog! Anyone interested can read the follow up weeks/months at my old blog: http://www.aeonity.com/happybeginnings/ I enjoyed writing in that blog but the site wasn’t too user friendly for readers so I decided to switch! If you don’t feel like reading those old posts I’ll try and summarize everything in afew sentences for you. I’m a happily married mom with 2 amazing sons and a wonderful husband. We’ve been married for 8 years and had known eachother since grade school. We were highschool sweethearts. The surrogacy bug hit me back years and years ago but it wasn’t the right time. Fastforward 2 babies later and I was ready. My husband is very supportive and we started the journey back in August 2012. We are very fortunate to be matched with an INCREDIBLE couple E&M who are just a joy to know and who are going to make the most wonderful parents! Paperwork, contract, Dr’s appointments, shots, medication and all that jazz we are finally pregnant!
We had a little scare yesterday. I was at work and I started bleeding. Not gushes, but enough to wear a pad and be concerned. I went to see my Dr (who is just AMAZING!) She confirmed that it wasn’t a miscarriage. My cervix was still closed and the prgnancy was right on track. We couldn’t hear a heart beat but she said it was super early and not uncommon that we couldn’t hear anything. The baby is only 3mm! I took it easy for the rest of the day. The bleeding stopped and I am back to feeling sick again (which is good.) I have a follow up appointment next Wednesday (the week is going to DRAG!) but all we can do is hope and pray.
I did take my first set of belly shots though which I will post later on 🙂 and E send me a bunch of recipes and articles on morning sickness which will be great to read about.
Andrew Baby Week 6: Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet- still webbed like paddles- might wiggle by week’s end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.
