When You're a Surrogate4:02 PM
Newest picture of healthy baby B!
When you are a surrogate you take on a couple's hopes and dreams for a family. It is both an incredible honor and a huge responsibility. Sometimes, things don't always go as planned though and then you take on that couple's pain. My IF's have walked down the transfer road 7 times now. This time with me was the first time they had actually had a positive outcome at the first ultrasound. We found out it was twins and we were all ecstatic.
Unfortunately, at my last ultrasound on Monday, we found out that Baby A did not make it. Baby B is still healthy and looking great, but the pain of having to call and tell them the news was heartbreaking and I couldn't help but feel like I failed them somehow, although there is nothing I could have done. Surrogacy is an amazing thing that I am blessed to be able to do for someone else, but sometimes, it is a hard road to walk.
I want to thank everyone who continues to stop in here, even though my posting has been less than regular lately and hope to get back on track soon. Thank-you all for your support and here is hoping for a happy healthy rest of our journey.
