As time pressed onward, so did the pregnancy. Each week brought new excitement for us all. We spent the remainder of our summer weeks enjoying the outdoors, traveling, and allowing our hearts to grow along side our IF's precious baby girl!
Wait, what? Yes, a girl! I have now been pregnant 4 times, and each time it has been a darling, yet strong, little girl! Can you believe it? Me either! My jaw dropped when our dads told us transfer day that they chose a girl embryo!!!! I was so positive they were going to choose boy, (I also had thoughts my second daughter was a boy LOL), but here we are, girl number 4! Finish strong with GIRL POWER!
As the weeks went on, my belly stayed little, but she did not. She was growing just fine! With an incredibly strong heartbeat. Our dads were still holding their breath at this point though. With a late miscarriage happening for them the last time they were trying for baby #2, they were optimistic with caution. While I did everything I could to protect their precious darling, and build up their spirits, it was just going to need to be a successful pregnancy past their worry week. Almost there, and she is still holding strong for all of us. I'm fairly certain my daddy was watching over us, helping us all stay strong, and viable so there were no more heartaches. This sweet girl will be the new life given from my father's life taken. She will help me to fill that void. Providing her daddies with such joy and happiness in their hearts, will provide me with comfort, joy, and love for them to pursue their lives as a completed family.
Close to halfway through a second journey, and my final pregnancy, feelings of bittersweetness begin. I love having babies. I love, LOVE helping others fulfill their dreams of having a child. I also love that I was able to do it with The Surrogacy Experience backing me and my IPs. As I come closer to closing another chapter in my life, I reflect back on all the positive things that have come along for so many. This journey has been tough, emotionally, but has been a rewarding one none the less. I couldn't be happier knowing this precious angel will complete a family, and I was lucky enough to help ❤
Until next time readers. Stay tuned, as a new blog will come sooner rather than later.
The Surrogacy Experience (TSE) is a gestational surrogacy agency that was founded on personal experience. The founder of the agency, with the support of her fertility clinic, welcomed her first daughter into the world through IVF. She later went on to explore surrogacy and along with her surrogate mother, welcomed her second daughter. The Managing Director has been a surrogate mother twice herself. With this foundation, our surrogacy program is a boutique approach to bringing Intended Parents and Surrogate Mothers together on a surrogacy journey. Along with the support of our network partners we provide up-to-date information and education on such items as: what is surrogacy and the surrogacy process, becoming a surrogate mother / surrogate mother requirements, surrogate mother compensation, things to know as an intended parent, surrogacy medical process / medical procedures, how to find a surrogacy agency, surrogate laws / surrogacy laws, international surrogacy, and navigating gay surrogacy. Surrogacy information is out there, but finding the right gestational surrogate agency will help you decide if surrogacy is right for you. Let The Surrogacy Experience be your source of education and information.
