Half Baked!

Not only only of my favorite flavors of ice cream, but also the mark we hit today! This pregnancy is officially 20 weeks today, and no one has any idea where the time has gone, except for my parents. Sabrina is doing very well and says that Cletus is a very active little one, which I am hoping is not a sign of things to come. The husband and I are making our way up to Sabrina's for the BIG ultra sound on June 7th! So let me know what you believe, are we have a Cletus or Cletusette? I hate to let you know that I already know. In fact, I have been keeping this semi-quiet for a good long while now.


In a journey where there is so very little you get to have to yourself, knowing this has really been a wonderful thing. We never had that moment when we were the only two people in the world that knew we were having a baby. Really, we did not with the gender either, but for some wonderful moments we have been able to pretend.

When we first began looking at surrogacy it was very difficult for me to wrap my head around sharing all these moments with someone else. To my surprise it has been much easier than I could have ever imagined. Most of this is due to the fact that we have an amazing surrogate who lets us know everything that is happening and really does everything she can to make us feel like we are going through this with her. The other part is that there are little things we know that we are not telling others and we are so happy to have these little things that we really do not worry about the bigger ones. In about 20 weeks, we will have millions of moments that just the three of us share, and really that is all that matters.

This is absolutely lovely Jaymee! Congrats on hitting the midpoint--where has the time gone is right!! I'm guessing he's still Cletus--boy!

halfway! WOW so exciting.

Having someone who is so willing to share with you really does make a difference, it made a huge difference for me, that and keeping the info between myself and my husband for a long time made it feel like our special little secret that we alone were sharing...

Looking forward to the next scan!

Hooray! I am so happy that everything is going so well. You are a little sneak knowing the gender and not divulging. ;) I think it is a boy.

I am glad you are able to find things along this journey that are just between the three of you. This has been such an amazing adventure, and I am so glad Sabrina is in your life.

Can't wait to hear what you're having!
