Wonderful Trip

My kids and I just got back late last night from our trip to NY/CT. We had a wonderful time. Being able to see the babies again was great...being able to see their daddies again was even better! The babies are now 5.5 months old and I think that was a great age to interact with and be around them. They are really happy, smiley babies which is just perfect!

We had a lot of fun going to the Central Park Zoo, eating at the restaurant Mars 2112, swimming at their pool in CT, and just hanging out and relaxing. D & W told me that they think they are done having children because they are so happy with the twins. D says that he would be so jealous if I ever did a surrogacy for someone else which leads me to my next thought.

If you haven't already gathered, by reading this blog, I am probably the most indecisive person in the world and so I know in my last post I said I was going to pursue another journey, but now I don't think that's the case anymore. I just don't think I have the energy and patience for another journey right now. Maybe if I didn't have to start from the very beginning, I would, but I am so content with what I have done up until now that I already feel like now would be a good time to quit...while I'm ahead! For some ladies, they just feel the urge to keep going (and some seem to have a hard time stopping altogether), but for me I just don't seem to have as strong a passion as I did in the beginning. There are times though, when I get a pang of jealousy when I hear about others highlights in their journeys. With that said, I am happy where I am right now and we'll see what the future has in store for me. I'm not getting any younger so who knows what will happen!

You sound just like me!! I can't make up my mind about a 2nd journey. I go back and forth way too much... in a way, I am satisfied with what I did and I fulfilled my dream. But on the other hand, it made me feel so amazing and hearing about other surrogacys makes me want to do it all over again. For me, only time will tell.

this is a great post and like you said only time will tell. I think it's best to stop when you're ahead, but that's my opinion. I'm scared my 2nd journey wouldn't be as good as my first....but you never know...good luck

I know for a fact that you are not THE most indecisive person...I am. I wrote a blog entry waxing poetic about being retired and not a week later matched with IFs. So yeah...we surrogates are a flaky bunch but we sure do know how to grow babies. :)
