Sorry it has taken awhile to get these up. We had some visitors and internet issues. Hopefully tomorrow we will be discharged and able to head back to the condo. I can't wait to get back into regular life!

Thanks very much from the bottom of our hearts for all the comments. It is just such a nice feeling to see so many people wanting good things for us. We wish you all the same luck in your journeys!!

So, here she is:

Shouldn't be long now!!

We Have a Fiver

Five, yes, I repeat five!! Slowly but surely!!

Sorry about the last post, that's what you get for auto correct and bad eyes! ;)

No Progress

Nothing new to report, except we are the ome delicious pizza for dinner. Sound familiar? ;)

Almost 4

Labor is going slowwwwwwwwww. She is almost 4. Water has been broken, but not much mor progress yet. Poor thing!

3 and Counting

BM is dilated to 3 cm already. She is on a pitocin drip and has the epidural in place. We are in a separate room and just found out that we get to spend the night!! Woooohooo! We were not aware of that earlier. Please check back here for updates throughout the day. Thanks for all the emails, texts, bbms, and messages on FB today. It is wonderful to feel soooo loved!

So Close...

Today is the day! Our BM is going to be admitted at 6am and we will arrive shortly after to pace the halls and keep her company. We had a fabulous lunch with her and her mom today. They told us a lot of their family history and funny stories we can share with our child when the time is right. After that, we spent the evening at he pool. We both got workouts in and are getting ready to try to sleep. I will update ASAP, I promise!!

Quickie Update

No big news yet, still planning on flying to Arizona on Sunday unless our little peanut decides to come earlier. Unlike surrogacy, you are less privy to information about the pregnancy and doctor reports. We are still waiting for an update from Tuesday's appointment, maybe we will get it tomorrow. However, we remain in good spirits and continue to surround ourselves with positive people.

Just want to say a big THANKS to all my loyal friends leaving comments. I was a little nervous how our news would be received in the surro community, but you guys never fail or cease to amaze. I wish you all the best of luck on your journeys, wherever they may lead you.

I will continue to update as I receive the information. We are excited about going to AZ, as I have been there once previously, but hubby has not. And the best part of all is... we get to meet Rhonda and her family! We have been friends and supporters of each other for a long, long time now. It is just wonderful that they live in the general area that we will be staying in. Talk about a small world.

Off to bed, dreams of baby days again! :)

We've Been Keeping a Secret ;)

Yes, we have been keeping a very, very big secret. We are ready to share because we are about to burst! We were matched with a birth mother (or expectant mother) a week after we received our completed home study. That was April 20th. It was the craziest day!!! My dad had just come into town to visit, Stephen's parents were here to have dinner with us and we were secretly completing paperwork and sending off our profile to be viewed by a birth mom. It all happened within 36 hours. Talk about craziness. It happened so fast, that we were scared it was too fast.

But, as the next few weeks turned into months, here we are, about WEEK away from a scheduled induction! We are so happy to share this news with our family and friends. Our birth mom will be induced on the 21st if she does not go into labor sooner. We will be flying to AZ next weekend or earlier.

We are on cloud nine, for months now. It is such a nice feeling to let our hearts open up to these emotions again. Please continue to pray for us and for our birth mom to continue with her adoption plan. Stay tuned! Exciting things are happening for us!!!!
