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.

The belly

I really haven't known what to think about this belly.  I really woke up and it was there one day and its getting bigger. I am only 7 weeks pregnant on tuesday. I am not very fond of it.  Non of my clothes fit, it's embarrassing to tell people, ya Im only 6 weeks after they notice on their own there is a belly on me.  I've been looking at a few maternity clothes or bigger clothes but bigger clothes won't fit long and maternity clothes, I haven't even seen a heartbeat I don't want to move to fast.  I am also am a volunteer photographer for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. We take pictures of Infant or child loss. The other day I could not find a photographer for two Angels.  So I tried on everything I had to hide it so I could go. I don't own a lot of bigger clothes I like tighter less clothing especially in summer.   It was the one day in my life I wanted people to think I was fat not pregnant.  I can't take pictures for these moms that just lost their  baby while I am flaunting my pregnant belly. Its just not fair to them and the pain they are going through.   As I tried to hide it I walked into the hospital and a nurse I knew said "Jen are you?" as she looked at my belly. She had no idea I was doing Surrogacy. So I think I'll be taking a brake from my Angels :( Which I am so sad about!!!

Today is my first Ultrasound hopefully we see great heartbeat(s). I am really excited! I might start really liking the belly after.
