I can not believe that I am already halfway through this pregnancy and now already 22 weeks. I am finally at the point where it is obvious that I am pregnant and I get to share the story of my surrogacy often. Other than a few round ligament pains I am feeling great and still able to do everything as usual.
Earlier in the week we visited my darling new nephew Bennett how is the second son to Billy’s youngest sister Andrea and brother-in-law Joel. I often take their son Wesley and now can’t wait to have two ‘littles’ to hang out with.
After leaving their house, we forgot Billy’s phone so they dropped it off on their way to run a few errands along with another wonderful surprise – a body pillow. Has anyone tried one of these? It is HUGE, how will this fit in our bed? How will I get in an out of it? So I tried this glorious pillow for a few nights and surprisingly I didn’t like it, in fact I returned it last night to Andrea. She swears I will be back in a few months when I am bigger and will love it. The issues I had with it was that once it was in the bed and under the sheets, I felt like I had to hurdle over the side to get into it. Then once I wrapped my arm under it and put it between my legs I was fine. Of course then it was time to roll to the next side and in doing so it was hard to get my arm out, you can just slip it over the top like a long body pillow. Lastly, I am pregnant so I obviously have to use the restroom 2x a night. It was too hard to get out of the pillow each time that I nearly wet myself trying to heave my body out of bed. But she says I will be back for the pillow, we will see.
Last night we headed to Joel and Andrea’s house again for their son’s 2 year birthday party. I can’t believe it has already been 2 years since Wesley was born. Recently Billy introduced Wesley to the Star Wars movies and now he is obsessed. Not a surprise to our family, so are we. Will has so many Star Wars figurines, guns, light sabers and Lego sets that it was time to pass them along to Wesley. Of course he is too small for all of it, so we wrapped up the Storm Trooper Mr. Potato Head we purchased along with a few key toys Will wanted to pass on. They were a hit! I mean look at this adorable face, how can you not spoil him?
