Where Has Time Gone

I wonder all the time where does the time go??!! It has been 13 weeks (and a few days) or 14 weeks on Friday and it doesn't seem possible!!!  My little surro baby is just the sweetest boy and is doing so well.  I couldn't be more proud.  I haven't seen him since he was around 6 weeks old so really hoping to see him again soon, but for now, I just admire his pics from his mama that I get weekly!!!!!!!!!!  It's so surreal that I had a baby just a few many weeks ago.  Sometimes it feels like it was years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday.  Not having a baby around to remind you every day that you gave birth is pretty surreal also.  It's like it never happened.  My friend was saying the other day "after that second kid" and I said "I've only had 1 kid"....and she had to remind me, no you've had 2 kids, you are only raising one kid.   But after 3 months, healing, time passing, work, hanging w/ my awesome daughter, staying busy and moving right along, I have to admit I can't wait to do this again!!!!  I would do it all over in a heart beat and I hope that I get to one day. I just feel so lucky to be able to produce kids with no problem, no sickness and feeling great the whole time that it would be a waste not to do it again.  I feel like this is my calling in life.  I feel amazing that I can create a little human inside of me not only for my own family and benefit but for other's benefit and their families.  That is pretty awesome I think!!!!!!!  So I'm not saying tomorrow that I will do this, but maybe next year!!!  First, I'll definitely wait to see if my IPs want a sibling because they are my number 1 but if they choose not to or whatever the case may be, then I will look at some other IPs.  I will say however, my next IPs will have some hard shoes to follow in because I'm pretty sure I have the BEST IPs around!!!  

I'm not sure how often I will update this blog since I don't have any real thing to talk about now. LOL  I am however, going to start working for the surrogacy agency that I went thru for my surrogacy.  They have asked that I become a mentor/consultant for other surrogates since my journey went so perfect.  I LOVE helping others and love talking and listening so I think this might be the perfect job for me and am so thankful they thought of  and asked me.    I can't wait to start training and take this new adventure on.  I won't be quitting my day job by any means, but will have this as a second "part time" job. 

So with that, Life is great, me and my daughter are healthy and busy all the time and I just thank God every day for all my blessings, my family, my friends and everyone's health and that it continues to stay that way for a very long time.     With that I'll leave you with a picture of my sweet little surro boy!

Cute pictures and thanks for sharing. Surrogates are amazing and I'm thrilled to hear that you had such a great experience that you'll be mentoring others.

I sometimes find myself thinking, "Surrogacy seems like such a neat thing...I should try that". It's almost like I forget that I've already done it, even though I get updates and pictures. It's just like my body forgets or something.


Your surrobub is gorgeous

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. What a lovely quote. Dedicated to all mothers. Thanks for the lovely post.

Hi,

I am a PhD Student in Paris, France and do a research on surrogate mothers. I was wondering if you might be interested to participate in my study? it would imply me sending you through email several questionnaires (3) and a consent form. It would be anonymous. I already have met with several surros but the more the better for the research. Let me know if you'd would be interested in that. I can answer all your questions about my study.

Take care !
