Me as a Gestational Carrier!!

** A moment in my Tummy, forever in my heart**

Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm not the best writer so bare with me as I try to tell about my experience :) I am a mom of 4 ranging from ages 13-3. About 12 years ago I decided that one day I would help a family bring a child into this world. In 2011 I met my first Intended family and delivered a baby boy on Aprils fools Day 2012. I now am matched with my second family and I look forward to what this journey brings to us.

6 Weeks

This post is a tad late, I am 6 weeks and 3 days now. I wrote this the other day but I wanted to post a belly pic with it but I am not feeling so photogenic this week. I will get one up soon because I'm looking preggo. I have been nauseous and so sleepy. Wow I fall asleep looking at the computer. Today has been a little rough I woke up with a little old blood. I have never bleed in any of my pregnancies so it a little nerve racking.  Its since gone away but I have had kind of a crampy feeling. So hopefully all is well and we will see heartbeats on Monday.

*This week's major developments: 

*The nose, mouth, and ears are beginning to take shape.

*Baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. 

*The ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. 

*His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute

 *Blood is beginning to course through his body. 

*The intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. 

*The pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones. 

*K and J's baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil.
