Sibling Journey?

Yesterday afternoon I received an email and some new pics of Baby D.  Oh, chunkiness galore!!  Just as G stated, "meals are not an issue."  LOL.  He really looks like his daddy.  He's just over 4 months old now.  G made my day by telling me that the more they talk about it, they for sure want to try again...and try with US!!  I was/am so happy!  I texted Brad the news.  He thought it was great.  When I got home from work, he asked if I was able to drive home okay with being so freakin excited.  LOL, he knows me so well.  So, yes, July 2014 may be the beginnings of a sibling journey!!  Yay!

As a side note, we went shopping last weekend.  There were 3 pregnant ladies right inside the door.  I made some comment about all the prego bellies.  Brad just looked at me and jokingly said, "Really?"  Uh, you do know who you're talking to right?  LOL!  I replied, "Really?  Do you even have to question me?  Of course I'm going to be jealous of the bellies!"  :)  I just had to share!  Have a great day!

Been awhile

I haven't posted for awhile.  Lots has happened in the almost 2 months since posting.  My daughter had heart surgery the middle of June, had a complication and was placed back in the hospital for a few days.  That period of time was so crazy.  I'm so very happy to say she's recovered extremely well now, 6 weeks post surgery.  Her doc even said she can bump a volleyball a bit, according to her comfort.  She LOVES volleyball, so this made her happy!  Practice starts in just a month at school!

Baby D is growing nice and chunky!  He's so adorable.  G sends me pics/texts here and there and I'm so thankful for that.  He is almost 4 months old!!  Wow!  I had spoken with G awhile ago about the possibility of getting a new tattoo.  There is an FDA regulation that you must wait one year after a tattoo/piercing to do any embryo transfer stuff.  I asked her what their timeline was for considering taking this journey again.  If it was sooner than the one year, I wouldn't get the tattoo.  I know they have more frozen embies and she wasn't sure if they had to "use" them in a certain timeframe or not.  They checked and it was all good with her clinic to store the embies for awhile more and still have them be okay.  She said they thought spring babies were fantastic, so they would love to try again in July 2014!  They said it was okay with them if I went ahead with my tattoo.  Deep down, I really wanted to get the tattoo to help force myself to wait a year before getting prego again.  I feel great right now, so I know I would have jumped right in again.  I had wanted another tattoo, so it's not like I got it only for that reason though.  So anyway, all is well here, just slow going in the surrogacy world while we wait to see if they really do want to try again next year...talk at you all later!
