Halfway - At last

I have to say that I just haven't been much into blogging lately. I was never good at keeping a diary and just the same not good at keeping up to date on my blog.

Things with the surrogacy have quieted quite a bit. Last Thursday I had my 20 week U/S and the Dr. said everything looks great. I hope that my IF's are at ease knowing this after everything we have gone through. The baby is moving like crazy which is good. I've already gained 14 lbs. which I hope will slow down a bit over the next few months. I figure I'm halfway there and gained half of what I need to gain sooooo...hopefully I'm right on track (I'm pretty sure this is how it was with my daughter as well). My IF's are thinking they want me to meet with a new Dr. just to see how he is and still keep our options open. I'm okay with it, I am nervous about how far away it is though. With my daughter I was only in labor from first contraction to delivery for 2 hours and 44 minutes and had I stayed home any longer I probably would have had her at home. Thank God that the hopspital was only 5 minutes away. This new hospital is about 30-40 minutes away depending on traffic. I really don't want to be induced unless medically necessary.

I know my IF's want to do a 3D or 4D U/S so we may be doing that soon. They are also planning a trip out to take my husband and I downtown to stay in a hotel and have dinner. That will be really nice - a night away from the kids. It's been a long time.

This has been a super busy month so far and I don't see it lettin up in the near future. If anything happens I will post.

Lastly, here's a pic of my 20 week belly.
