22 Weeks

Not a whole lot going on here. My hubby and kids arrived safely after a surprise knock on the door 1 day early. It was a blessed feeling to see their faces and hug on them. We've quickly settled into our place. It's a wonderful environment for the kids and they've loved going to the pool, riding their bikes and having responsibilities like taking out the trash. I was able to get a wheelchair and handicap placard last week so I have gone out a few times. We went to the store and the kids took turns pushing me in the wheelchair, it was really nice. I'm hoping we can take the kids to see a movie at the theater before things change for me. My contractions have been going alright. I have good days and bad days but I can't seem to relate it anything in particular. On a day I was more active and up I would have less contractions than on a day I stayed laying down all day...who knows! Although, I am grateful for the monitor, knowing I always have someone to call and I don't have to spend my time guessing. My IP's are arriving into town this weekend and we are thrilled. I can't wait to see the kids! They are going to be able to attend their first OB appointment with me on Tuesday and an ultrasound on Wednesday. I can't wait to see their reactions to seeing their babies for the first time! So, for now things (hopefully) will remain quiet. I'm hopeful I can stay out of the hospital for a long time to come and look forward to spending my time watching the kids play around the house and at the pool. Dr. E did say that spending time in the pool would be really good for my back and rib pain so, I come! Say a prayer for many more weeks of growth!


  1. Thank you for sharing your experiences of surrogacy!
    Help us to promote awareness of surrogacy through World Surrogacy Day on 4th November 2011...

  2. I hope you stay out of the hospital too. Is there any type of protocal with quads . . . like you'll have to go in at a certain time or will they let you stay home the whole time as long as things continue to go well?
