Hi everyone. Just thought I'd come over and delurk. I'm now just over 8 weeks pregnant and finally accepting that there is a wee one (as if the ultrasound wasn't enough, for some reason I don't believe it until I can feel my uterus popping out a bit).

I am a mama of three, wife to one but this babe isn't mine. I am doing a surrogacy for good friends of mine. I am done having my own babies (very done ), but I love being pregnant.

Just thought I'd say hi!

Welcome!

How utterly fantastic to be a surrogate. That's true friendship, to be sure. here's hoping your wee one goes easy on you!

"if that's okay?" Of COURSE it's okay! Why wouldn't it be? You're no less pregnant than anyone else here!

I've told myself that, if I really, REALLY want to be pregnant ever again after this one (which will be our last child), I can always surrogate. ;-) We know at least one couple who might very well be interested.

Welcome and congratulations. How wonderful that you have chosen to be a surrogate.

As miserable as I'm feeling right now, being a surrogate seems like an even more wonderfully selfless, kind thing to do than it usually does. I mean, all the m/s and you don't even get to keep the baby!
