The kids and I were able to drive over to visit my girlies and George, Menaka and Logi (Cousin/Grandma) both were at their birth . . . however, Sanj was being a Yoga Hottie in India, so I missed him this visit.
You can find some several pictures of the last five years, including pics from this weekend on my Facebook Album for my Surrogacy Journey #1 Here . . . . it is set to public, so everyone should be able to see it.
Can't wait for the next several years!
A reminder of their birth story can be found here:

And when the Girls Went Home
They are sooooo very smart and beautiful and a joy to be around. George and Sanj have done such a wonderful job raising these two and I know they will continue to be stellar parents.

Now, before I proceed . . . a reminder of the last few years:
Also a quick Shout Out to Stacie's husband Paul who always does a great job taking my ideas and making them into shirts for us . . . and he doesn't charge me ;)

Now back to our adventure . . . since we were able to celebrate near LA a few other Surrogates came along for the ride. Andrea who is preggo and Laura who is preggo, both for Gay dads joined us. Also, Amy, a Surrogate friend who flew all the way from Minnesota joined us too! She gave birth to 8 pound twins (yes 8 pounds each) for two dads about six months ago. She was in town re-screening for Growing Generations for her second journey that will start in the next few months. Talk about great timing!
We all had a wonderful time and Stacie and I were even able to stop by and hang out with Gideon and Harper for a few hours on Sunday before we flew back. They are getting sooo big and are just a load of fun! Wish I could share a picture, but you know the drill.
We all discussed Chicago Pride for 2013 but after the Parade, Vegas may be a contender as well. You'll just have to wait and see!

We're 25 and a half weeks along, doing great. People are still telling me how small I look. I think they forget the last two times I was carrying twins. I also lost some weight at the beginning of the pregnancy, so that's probably it too.

Feeling good and doing well. Little Man is moving around a lot and even has had hiccups a few times. Even after being pregnant so many times, it's funny when they get hiccups.
It looks as if I'm going to change my OB and delivery hospital. I think I mentioned earlier that my OB's wife is sick, so he's leaving the practice and moving away. Paradise is a far drive and even farther for all my friends in Sacramento, so I think I'll be changing to Sutter Roseville. I'm still waiting to see if the OB I chose can take me on, but I'm hoping for the best. Will keep you all posted of course.

Here are some photos from the 20 week ultrasound. The Tech said everything looks great and he's measuring on target for his gestation . . . except that he has long legs. Apparently his femur measured 35 weeks! How tall was that egg donor? :) Oh and yes, there was a penis confirmation- BOY it is. :)
In this video, the tech was getting his lips (top center) and trying to make it look like he was squishing them on a glass mirror!

So I'm feeling good and Little man is doing great. Had an OB appointment Monday and it went well. He's growing right on target and heartbeat sounded great.
Last night, while I was hanging out and watching TV with my friend, I felt him move. I kept feeling him over and over again. It's always so great for peace of mind when you feel them move. I also bought a Doppler from a Surrogacy friend who just delivered so I can keep tabs in between appointments and let the IPs hear them when we Skype.
We have the big ultrasound scan set for 2 weeks from now, so I should have lots of great pictures.
