First Trimester Over!

Phew! We made it!

We had our 12 week scan the other day and the result: normal, normal, normal, normal, normal! What a relief.

So we decided it was time to tell our friends and families and anyone else who cares to listen. We're going to be dads!

After we had spoken to our closest friends and family we were beaming with the enthusiasm our news was greeted with. And then, just before we headed out to dinner to celebrate, Adam and I updated our Facebook pages. We must have looked a right pair, sitting at the dinner table with our mobiles in front of us as we enjoyed each and every message that came back. Everyone's support is so gratefully received - and really affirming.

Buoyed by all this enthusiasm, we're moving into phase two of saving for the big day. We're in lock-down now!


  1. Congratulations!! SO happy to hear all is normal. We are a week ahead of you guys- SHHH we didnt tell anyone yet in blogland, lol...becausde i just need time to let the dust of our past settle :)

  6. I'm a little late on the blog reading but wanted to shout out a huge congrats! I am kind of dying to leak stuff on facebook but I've been holding back -- and we're almost 26 weeks! Soon, soon...

    Way to go guys!!!

  7. We have similar issues as you guys. I'm US citizen and my partner is UK citizen so our plan is to use my donation and get US citizenship first. Good luck.

  8. For those who are interested in pregnancy and surrogate motherhood, there is a good blog. My daughter was born thanks to a surrogate mother we found at the Feskov Human Reproduction Group. We liked our acquaintance with her very much, there is a wide choice of surrogate mothers, all proven and healthy, both physically and mentally. In addition, the price is very good and there are no problems with traveling home and documents. I suggest you also check out their YouTube channel, there are a lot of interesting information.
