ah so you are doing traditional surrogacy vs gestational?

I didnt test today, I was so busy w outdoor work and enjoying the sun... but no spotting and the cramping subsided so I am guess this baby is here to stay. dont even feel pregnant. maybe a little more tired and my brain is mush.

looking forward to weekely chat

Re: February 2012

I think I'm out mamas. I'm ok with it. I had alot of time to think this whole week and I have been pressing on as I was not pregnant anyway - which is NOT like me. I really enjoy preparing, taking belly pics. I was just caught off guard. plus I kept thinking of my littlest baby who really needs her mama, and my milk. she would only be 17 month when baby would be here and that was breaking my heart. w out a baby I see me carrying her in the beco and nursing till shes 2. with a baby I see me missing alot of her milestones cause I am busy w a new baby AND I see her weaned and not being doted on as much and THAT broke my heart :'(

anyway this is what happened: I didnt test last 2 days.
but when I did today, which should be 15dpo the test was barely + by 1 minute. (not normal for me) and although at 15 minutes a very definite positive, its not even as dark as the control by now. my cervix is low and slightly open and I am going #2 often. I think I may see a tad pink/yellow mucus too.
Ive not had nausea or any sore boobs in 2 days, plus dont need to pee as often. whereas 2 days after the +, I had full sore tender boobs. I was also quite tired and now I am full of energy.

here are the tests today
at one minute



3 minutes


12 minutes


with my other pregnancies, the test line would be positive before the pee even hit the control UNLESS its these new tests. I may go get one test from walmart today.

here are the tests from earlier this week. the bottom pink is from Thursday.

Sara--yes, gorgeous dipes!

hmm, belly pics. I guess I should have taken some before I got all bloated! I mean no baby belly yet, but it's nice to have a before shot to compare to!
agreed, there is no way I would consider this a before baby belly now, since the reason I took the test was I was feeling bloated and I just wanted to know if it was AF or a baby

I think I'd have such a hard time if I were due at the end of the month and had to "watch" everyone post birth stories while I sat like a ticking time bomb. Is that horrible to say? LOL
it is nicer to be toward the begining of the month for the reasons everyone already said. My last one was born on the 18th and even though that was in the middle, the group already felt sort of empty.
