Half way!

Not many people read this blog anymore, but a few do (hi, J!) so I wanted to update...

Even though I don't believe it's accurate to say 20 weeks is halfway through a pregnancy (since transfer is just before 3 weeks in), we have hit that milestone! In fact, we're 21 weeks tomorrow.

We had our anatomy scan a week ago and everything looks great. Our surrogate is feeling good, and hasn't had any issues.

I'm in my third month of taking the pill, in preparation for inducing lactation. I'll start pumping in September, about 6 weeks before the baby is due.  In late May, I realized it was 5 months to the baby, and 3 months until I start pumping., which feel like a long time. But with a surrogate, the time passes quickly, and we have a busy summer ahead.

DH and I took a nice trip to Europe, without C, and it was nice to be able to drink wine. (I have to take those silver linings wherever I can, man...) It'll be our last trip solo for quite awhile, though we have travel plans with C this summer.

And now we wait!


  1. 20 weeks is amazing! Baby will be here before you know it :)

  3. Yay for 20 weeks!! I'm 18.5 so right behind you guys :-)
