First of all, I have to say congratulations to Tonya over at www.babydreams2011.blogspot.com on her BFP!!! I'm soo very happy for her and her amazing SIL who is her surrogate. Tonya and I get to induce lactation together so at least I'll have someone to commiserate with.
Yes, I get to induce lactation which means we had a great Dr appointment today. Our midwife said baby bean is right on track and the heart beat was perfect. Our estimated due date is Oct. 25th. We're so excited, it's all really so real now. Until I saw that heart beat I kinda hadn't fully wrapped my head around it. Now I'm like damn I only have 32 weeks to prepare. So little time, so much to do...
First we need to tell our families. I've decided on something I saw on pinterest and I've modified it to our situation. I'm taking a picture of Emma holding todays US picture wearing her Big Sister shirt. To make it even funner I've blown out a few eggs and I'm going to paint them all cute and put a little tag saying open me on them. I'm going to photocopy the picture and roll it up all tiny and put it into the blown out egg. Then I'll carefully package up the egg in a cute hand made box full of tissue paper and send one to Ash's mom and deliver the other to my mom. I think it will be fun, I'm hoping we can skype with Ashley's mom while she opens it. I think she may have a suspicion though, we were skyping a week or so ago and my grand baby spilled the beans but we were able to say she just knew that we were trying. I know bad daughter in law, I didn't want to lie to her but we didn't want family to know until we had confirmation of heartbeat so I consider it just a omission of truth instead of a lie.
Any ways, I would upload a pic of the cashew US but all of you know what that looks like so I'll spare you all for now but know that I will be uploading cute ones just as soon as it no longer looks like a cashew and starts looking like a baby. Who wants to venture a guess as to the sex of this one???
