A Quick Update

A Quick Update

Hey there! It has been a while since I gave an update so here we go! First and foremost I would like to share that I recently created a Pinterest for MWTS to try and drive more traffic to this site. If you would like to follow along please use this link to go to my Pinterest account. I am mostly pinning pins from other pinners mostly due to the fact I don’t have a lot of content to promote. I am not…

A Change

A Change

Ok so this time around this post is more about me than my wife but first I will give you all an update on my wife and the pregnancy. So far so good! Pregnancy is tracking right where it should be and no complications have arisen. Mandy was a bit under the weather starting Thursday and continuing through Mother’s day but by Saturday she improved greatly. We are thinking since there is a norovirus outbreak close to the area we…

The Pursuit

The Pursuit

Isn’t the pursuit of things something almost everyone loves to do? It can be the pursuit of happiness, or the pursuit of wealth, active lifestyle, or many other things. We love the chase and we tend to work hard for the desires of our hearts. Those of us that don’t like pursuit I believe haven’t found something that means anything significant to themselves.

Pregnancy Confirmation

Pregnancy Confirmation

So a few days after the transfer Mandy started to take at home pregnancy tests because we don’t have patience and we want to know if the transfer is successful as soon as we can.

I am the Outlier

I am the Outlier

So here I am. Watching all that is going around me. I am set apart from everyone else. Being an outlier is such a surreal feeling. It is surreal for the fact that I am an outlier in my own life. Yes, I am included in this surrogacy because I am the husband, and I do provide a good amount of support to my wife as she goes on this wonderful journey as a surrogate. What I am eluding to when…

Thoughts on transfer day.

Thoughts on transfer day.

Hello, everyone! I just wanted to dive a little deeper on what I was feeling and thinking on my wife’s transfer day. I explained what we did on the day before and the day of the transfer but I didn’t quite touch on my experience of it all. So let’s start with morning breakfast. Patrick, Damien, Mandy, and I were sitting at a table in the restaurant eating breakfast and Patrick and Damien wanted to take us on the tram…
