The ups and downs...

It's back! The morning sickness took a little holiday but has returned with full force. On one hand, this is a miserable feeling but on the other, it's a good sign that everything is going as planned. I hate to complain because I think it shows weakness but this is a blog of my progress and this is where I currently stand. Don't get me wrong, I do not at all regret my decision to be a surrogate! I just wish I could take something to get rid of this nausea. I do have some medication but it isn't helping much these days.

So here we are at 8 weeks! The little beans are actually the size of kidney beans. They are working on growing their limbs and their fingers and toes. How cute is that?!? Also, their facial features are forming.

As for me physically, I am not changing too much yet but when I press gently on my belly I can feel the swelling starting. I am curious as to how big I will get. I am not concerned about gaining too much weight. What does cross my mind is how much room will be available toward the end of this pregnancy. With my other pregnancies, it seems there was absolutely no more room to grow. I do know this... I am gonna be big :)
