Only 3 more weeks

Can it really be only 3 weeks left until we finally meet Miss Kamryn? I was feeling a bit nostalgic a few weeks back so I went back and read some of my first posts. The one announcing that I met a great family to carry for. Then having to wait for paperwork, test results, etc. The post about our transfer and then getting a positive pregnancy test. Remembering back on the first trimester and how on edge we were just trying to make it into the "safe" zone. The beginning seems so far away and yet when Kamryn arrives we will have only been on this journey for a year. I am so glad that I decided to start a blog because I never want to forget this.

The hours are seeming to pass slow but the days fly by. This has been such an amazing experience but my body is feeling very ready to be done. I do remember that the last few weeks are the hardest. Everything aches, sleep becomes scarce, visiting the bathroom becomes a constant activity, bending down is near impossible and finding energy to do anything is hard to do. But I would do it all over again in a second. A surrogacy journey is something that you can't fully explain in words and unless you've done it it is hard to grasp the full extent of everything that goes into it. And we haven't even gotten to the best part yet.

I go back to the doctor tomorrow and then weekly after that. Hopefully he will start checking to see if there are any changes so we can have a better idea if we can count on her hanging out until the 20th or if we need to expect her to come earlier. This week I am trying to get things finalized and ready so I can feel prepared when she decides to come. Kamryn has yet to do anything on schedule so we need to be ready.

T, F and I have started guessing the size and length of Kamryn. If you would like to join in on the fun, put your guess in the comments section of this post. It will be fun to see who gets the closest. Also, remember that she will be coming at 39 weeks or sooner. Happy guessing!

  4. Johanna, I seen ur latest pregnancy update on facebook and had to take a look at your blog. I started from the begining and I'm so touched by this wonderful journey you and your husband decided to take. I'm sure T & F are so very gratful that God brought you all together, I'm so happy and excited for both of your families. May God continue to bless you through the rest of your pregnancy and hopefully you're not to tired after Kamryn gets here to keep up your blog, I'm so anxious to find out how it all ends up (whatever Kamryn decides) :)
