Well, I had my first (unfortunately of many, but that comes along with surrogacy and IVF) ultrasound yesterday. I have been more than scared because my beta levels were seriously off the chart for even triplets and quads!

Turns out that I did get pregnant with 3 babies. One of which stopped growing last week. So, I'm pregnant with twins! They both looked beautiful and just perfect! And the parents are both over the moon happy!

We go next week for another u/s to see heartbeats and then I'll get to switch up my medicines that I'm on, thank goodness!

(The morning sickness & amount of tiredness is insane that I'm having.)

Another crappy thing is that with twins, I'm scared that I'll be fighting for the birth that I want the whole end of the pregnancy.

Eee! How exciting... I hope it's not too much of a fight to have the birth you want. Can you find someone who isn't going to push a C and let your body birth naturally?

Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.
