Earlier I posted that we did not receive the best response from some of our gay friends when we told them we were going to move ahead with surrogacy. Well as it turns out after the initial shock those people are completely supportive and happy for us, even if they do not understand why we want to be parents. And as an added bonus now that we have come completely “out of the closet”, so to speak, we are surrounded by more love, support, and advice than we could have ever imagined! We are so grateful for the people in our lives, especially our family and our friends that are also family.
On a different note I have been having the WORST nightmares. The other night I dreamt that I was changing the baby and I had only one wipe. The more I wiped the little tushy, the more poop that appeared. Until the next thing I knew the baby was completely covered in POOP! Then last night I dreamt that our baby was a super tiny (the size of an egg) fully formed baby. This wasn’t the scary part and in my dream that seemed natural. The scary part was that I put the baby down and could not remember where! I looked all over the place and could hear it crying, but could not find it anywhere!
I woke up covered in sweat. I wonder if it would be appropriate to have one of those little clapper things attached to the baby. You know the thing in the 80’s that you put on your key ring so if you lost your keys you could just clap and find them? Just in case.
