As promised... Surrogate Side

There is never a doubt in my mind that I was matched with the most perfect couple.  They are always so supportive and caring.  They are so deserving of having a child of their own.  I am so lucky to be able to help them reach that goal.  

When you come home from work and see that you have a package waiting for you on your doorstep, you immediately get excited (especially if you know you haven't ordered anything recently).  When you take that package inside to open it and see that it is chock-full of fun summer activities for your children and a nice comfy set of PJs for yourself, you get tears in your eyes as you watch the excitement on your children's faces as they squeal with delight.  When they ask who it's from and you say K&J and their response is "thank you so much!", your eyes begin to sting while you hold back the tears.  (Okay, maybe the crying part is just me and we can blame it on the pregnancy, but come on... these guys are simply awesome.)

From the most thoughtfully sweet IPs EVER!

Just as I promised, below is a belly pic!  Wowza!  And this is even before I've had lunch.  (I say that because my belly gets even larger with every morsel...)

17.5 weeks!

And take a look at this little cutie...

So precious...


  1. I think you should post a before and after lunch. I don't think people would believe how much bigger you get!

  2. How amazing you were matched with amazing IP's. I hope i get matched soon with some amazing people. Love watching your journey

  3. Hey Gina, I just realized you were doing such an amazing thing!! God bless you!!

  4. I can totally sympathize! Before I broke the news to my boss, I would leave the house lookin' fly, and by the time I got to work, my breakfast has pooched out my belly, straining the seams of my poor, non-maternity clothes.
