14 Weeks!!

We have now reached week forteen of our pregnancy with our SM.
This week we had a full range of scans sent to us of the baby. AMAZING :)

It feels so strange looking at these pictures.
Feeling so removed from the whole process, and so far away makes it feel unreal. Can these pictures really be of OUR baby!!!

Although we are still pregnant, I find it hard to allow myself to accept that we are.
We have both wanted this for so long....I don't think I will accept that this is real until the baby is in my arms....even then, it will feel like a dream.

I am really struggling with the idea of telling people about the pregnancy. When is the right time?? Women undergoing a normal pregnancy would have announced it by now...they would be showing a bump and would have to let people in on their excitement.

When is the right time to announce our pregnancy to our boss and announce it to work colleagues??

I feel like I am carrying the BIGGEST secret around. I actually feel that our pregnancy will become more real when everyone knows about it!!

I know I must be sounding like a complete basket case at the moment!! But really I am travelling along OK.
We are so very happy with how lucky we have been so far, we are feeling very blessed to have come this far. I have precious moments when I feel completely overwhelmed with joy at the prospect of becoming a MUM!!


  1. Those are the things that we struggle with/feelings that we have as well (and we're not even pregnant yet :). I think if you follow your heart, you will know when it's the right will just have that feeling that it's time to announce your upcoming baby (and explain the details). I think pregnant women go through this as well, as some wait longer than others to make that announcement. We are so happy for you both - it's so exciting (especially to be past the 1st trimester)!

  2. LOL you have exactly the same feelings as I do. We besically told so far only my mom, my grandmother and Saul's dad (and ofcourse my surrogacy blog family). I feel like I want to let everybody know but something is holding me back. I always have that "mark" in mind. I will tell everyone at 12 weeks, but now that we are pass that I am waiting for something else. Maybe another scan or so and then ... but then I will still keep a secret. Sometimes I feel like I just should wait to come back with the twins and itroduce them to the rest of the world in person.
    14 weeks is a great mark and you can mention it to your trasted friends if you feel it's ok. Let them be excited with you.

  3. Oh Kerrie, you are so funny. Enjoy the moment and when the time is right you will feel it come out so naturally. Trust me, everyone will enojy this too with u, (because i met u and know u are a WONDERFUL couple) they will not care where this baby comes from.

    Enjoy hun! Tell Doug we said hello.
