Ultra Sound Results, Our Blog Needs A New Name!

This blog post written by Tiffany, Surrogate Mother

So I guess we need to change our blog name to "A Belly For Me, BABIES For You."   James and Natalie are having twins!

Last night I did not sleep a wink.  I kept thinking, there must be more than one baby in there, right?  No, I just have really high HCG levels.  It has to be one big healthy baby.  Then of course I was up for over three hours on a fertility site reading other women's HCG levels and comparing them to mine.  I was right in the norm of having twins or even triplets.    There were a few that showed I could have been still having one baby.  By the time I was so sleepy and could no longer count ovulation dates and beta numbers (I am going to do this now instead of counting sheep at night), I was able to drift off around 2.A.M.

This morning, we made it to Seattle Reproductive Medicine to see some of our favorites people from our team.  When the nurse first started the scan, she knew right away there were two sacs.   We were able to see the little heart beats of each one and we were all instantly crying.  My favorite part was watching James and Natalie's faces as they got to see their babies' hearts beat for the first time ever.  What a beautiful thing to witness and be a part of.  I am excited and nervous to carry twins.  I really just cannot wait to feel the movement of a baby,  now babies, inside my belly.  What a beautiful joy I am a part of.

Here are some photos from the day.   I have had pretty bad morning sickness since my last blog last week.  I spent the car trip with a bag in my hand and my bean breakfast making an entrance into it. I did attempt to put makeup on, but had sweated and cried it off during my puking.  So the washed out look is what's in this week, feel free to copy the look!  :)

I just want to say how amazing my husband is. I think often times he gets forgotten in our situation.  He is seriously so wonderful.  This past week I have been in bed or on the bathroom floor.  He has been taking care of me, both our boys, the house, working and of course, filming the documentary for this movie.  Someone buy this guy a bottle of wine, I really big bottle, in the shape of a winery.   Thank you to my husband, you are a wonderful strong man and I appreciate all you do, I genuinely do.  I could not do this without you.


Thank you everyone for reading and all your support.  We appreciate you all.  Thank you for reading and sharing our story.
Warmly,
Tiffany



James and Natalie seeing a heart beat!


James and Natalie seeing TWO heartbeats!


Both are healthy and beautiful, we all start crying.





This blog post written by Natalie, Intended Mother

Where do I begin...WOW. So excited to see a healthy little heartbeat, but OVERWHELMED with joy to see TWO!! Two Healthy heartbeats, two healthy babies. Baby A with a heartbeat of 116 and Baby B with a heart beat of 119!!  Both measuring perfectly at 6 weeks and 1 day. I cannot seem to fathom the fact that we are being so overly blessed right now. We are having TWO BABIES!!! A year ago if someone told me this what was in store for us, I would have never believed it. They always say God has a greater plan than you could ever imagine, well He has far surpassed that. James and I couldnt be happier....well maybe if you could fast forward the next 8 months :) We are so excited for Hunter to be a big brother, so excited to start planning the babies' rooms...wow we can officially say BABIES!!! yahoo!
Looking over and seeing the excitement on Tiffan'y face just confirmed how incredibly blessed and greatful we are. Knowing how how excited she is and how badly she wants to bring these babies to our family is such a blessing. Being greatful for her would be the largest understatement.

Thank you for reading, please share our story with other women (and men too!).

Love,
Natalie, Intended Mother

  1. I was just telling my fiancé about this and he stops me saying. "Wait.. who is this?"
    My reply: "I dunno.. some people I don't know. But I am SO excited for them! You don't understand! She almost DIED when she had her first son.. she lost her UTERUS! And her freaking sister-in-law offered to let them use her uterus. It's amazing. They're awesome. I wish I DID know them!"

    So, yeah.. there you have it. I'm on the east coast and am very excited for you guys out there!

  7. The last picture is priceless. You can just see the love the two of you have for each other. It does take a very special man to be deal with his wife being pregnant, I'm not sure there are words for the kind of man it takes to deal with his wife having her brother's baby. Speechless.

  9. I did the same exact thing with my beta numbers! I drove myself insane trying to figure it out. The difference is mine were lower and most likely just one. I was so surprised when we saw 2 babies:)
