Well month 8 has been interesting to say the least! The intended fathers and I had a “maternity” photoshoot, and when I posted some of those photos on TikTok, it went viral. Then it got picked up on other social media platforms and let’s just say that a lot of people don’t understand what surrogacy is. However, overall, the reception was overwhelmingly positive!

With just a couple weeks left before I deliver, baby girl is putting a lot of pressure on my pelvis. Most days I’m fairly uncomfortable, although a support band does help a bit. Sleep can be hard to come by: I wake up at 4am most days and sit up to relieve some of the hip discomfort. Sometimes I can get back to sleep, sometimes I can’t and take a nap later in the day.

But it’s all worth it, and I can’t believe that by the time I write my next blog, baby girl will be born!
