This will be the place to read about my 4 journeys as a gestational surrogate and my hectic life with 2 kiddos. I may even share some recipes from time to time. Check it out frequently for the latest happenings. :)
I was severely worried about being able to lose the weight from this last pregnancy. The past 4 pregnancies were a breeze when it came to transitioning back to my normal size but I had a feeling this one would be tough (I am older, my metabolism is slower, and I am lazier). Thank the Lord, I was wrong. I know pumping increases my metabolism but it is amazing how quickly I lost the belly yet again. I can eat whatever I want and my body still burns off all the extra calories. I may just ride this out for a while since the fun will end once I dry up my milk. When I end production, I have to go back to counting calories and exercising to maintain my weight. Ugh. That sounds terrible right now as I am about to devour a Twix bar (my constant craving along with Wendy's frosties), lol.
I am a stay-at-home Mom to 2 crazy boys and married to the best hubby ever. I went to NC State, I love to cook and I am a 3X gestational carrier/surrogate. My first surro journey was completed in 2007 (baby boy born 12/27/07), the second journey was completed in 2009 (baby girl born 03-06-09), and the third journey in 2013 (baby girl born 03-15-13). The surrogirls are sisters. I am now working on my 4th and final journey with an international couple. :)
