Their Lovin, My Oven

My Journey as a Gestational Surrogate

Worth the Wait May 21, 2013

I apologize for my absence – Instead of excuses, I’ll offer you up tons of pictures of what’s been going on in our world. I’m currently 38 weeks, 2 days along with sweet LT! I got to join in his Mama & Daddy’s wonderful baby shower celebration and now we are counting down the days. M&T will be arriving to Southern California on Monday (just 6 days!) to await the arrival of their sweet boy. As long as he stays put until they are here, he’s welcome to come anytime after that. I am very excited (and only a little nervous) about the birth. I’m confident the team of wonderful people we have, including our two doulas, will give us the perfect natural, unmedicated experience that I’m hoping for. *Fingers crossed*

 

Without further delay, here are some awesome pics from our family shoot with my IFs and the twins and our maternity shoot with M&T by the amazing CDC Photography and M&Ts baby shower ❤ I hope you enjoy them!

 

First up, pics from our AMAZING visit with Esteban, Michele, Davide & Gabriel in January. I’m SO thankful to have these photos and look forward to repeating the photo shoot annually when we get together <3<3<3

Until Next Time,

Lots of Love – Danielle & LT

    I love picture overload! I can’t believe your almost done! Crazy

  2. I love all the pictures. Your blog is really nice. You are doing a wonderful job. Surrogacy is a wonderful opportunity for women to share the gift of fertility with couples who are unable to achieve pregnancy on their own. There are many things to learn about surrogacy before deciding whether this is the path that’s right for you.
