Surrogacy | Another Journey?

One of the main questions that I was asked during my surrogacy pregnancy was "Will you go again?" and my answer was always "No". After the scare we had at seven weeks, I didn't feel secure or safe enough with my own body to risk it. Plus, I had my own girls to think about too.

Surrogacy Update | The Birth

 I can't quite believe that I am sat here writing out my labour story this soon; I was pretty adamant that I would go overdue like my last pregnancy. Although ever since we had the false early labour scare at 37 weeks, we have been on rather high alert in case the little one made an early appearance.
Before I delve straight into it, I just wanted to make a note of saying that I will not be including any photographs or the name of the surrogate baby in this post - that information is not mine to share and I do hope that you are understanding in that.

Take The Trauma Out Of Bath Time With These Decor Ideas

Bathtime with kids is the worst time. If you don't set aside at least an hour to the cause, it just won't happen. Your kids will do anything possible to avoid washing. they'll distract you, put it off, and even outright run away. Even if you get hold of them, getting them in the water is like getting a cat in a box. When you do finally get them in the water, it's cold, and noone can be bothered anyway.
In reality, there's no reason why bathtime has to be this traumatic. Wouldn't you love a life in which your kids are more than happy to get in the bath? Or, if that's not possible, wouldn't you at least like to halve the effort required? If you answered yes, then you've come to the right place.
While we can't ensure that your kids start washing without complaint, focusing on your bathroom could help. With a few alterations, you may be able to put an end to the trauma. If that sounds good to you, keep reading to find out how.

How on earth am I already posting about my third trimester of this pregnancy?! It only seems like yesterday when the fertility treatment was underway and we were all patiently waiting on two blue lines during the dreaded two week wait.
