The Big Week
I have a lot going on this week. I have my first OB appt. tomorrow which I am glad, but I think it will be weird as well. I need to tell them about these awful headaches I have been having. I am having them all the time. Migraines and just regular (painful) headaches. The weird part will be telling them that I am a surrogate, pregnant with three babies, but the next time they see me, I will only be pregnant with one. My husband and I leave on Thursday afternoon to fly out to LA and the procedure will be performed on Friday morning. One thing that really helped was that I found a forum that had posts from ladies that had fertility problems and had undergone IVF. They were either facing a reduction or had already gone through the procedure. I can only imagine how much more tough a decision it was for these ladies because these were their own children. I just want to say that I don't feel as guilty as I have recently. I truly am looking forward to moving on. I got to hold a sweet sweet baby at a friends baby shower yesterday and I can't wait until I can provide this baby to his/her new parents. And I also can't wait to hold the little one. I am so glad that I won't be taking the baby home and having to breastfeed and wake up at all hours of the night to feed him/her. Exciting times!!!
