After 3 c-sections (Anonymous)

July 30, 2007

I just want to start off by saying how much I LOVE this site! I had my son in June of 2003, and a little over 18 mo. later had my daughter. I had to have an emergancy c-section with my son, because his heart rate dropped. They were going to put me under, but my epidural was so strong they performed the c-section with out putting me under. We chose to have a scheduled c-section with our daughter, because it was easier to know when (to have arrangements for our son). I also did not want any surprise either. After my daughter was born I looked into becomming a gestational surrogate. My kids meant so much to me I wanted to help another couple. I gave birth to twins (a boy and girl) at 34 weeks 4 days via c-section. Now I’m trying to get back into shape, and have about 12 pounds to lose, after gaining 55 pounds. Seems I always gain that :o ) The picture is of me nine weeks post partum after the twins.

    You look fabulous! Your kids are lucky to have such a great mom. I think its fabulous what you’ve done to help infertile couples. God bless you.

    Wow! How courageous and giving of you to become a gestational surrogate. I’m probably not the only reader who would love to read more about your thoughts, feelings, and reactions—and those of your partner, if you have one. Your story about your experiences might make a good article in a parenting magazine.

    You look terrific, you are a lucky woman I can’t see a stretch mark!! It took us 15 months, lots of testing and procedures to concieve our baby so I want to thank you for every infertile couple for doing what you did.
