4.5 months later


This cutie is 4.5 months old now! Sometimes it seems a little surreal that I carried him, although I'm still trying to shed the last few extra pounds of baby weight. I also was on steroids for about a month and a half, so I think that had some to do with why I weighed the most I ever have!
I still text with K pretty often, and am hoping we can get together again in the next few weeks.
Here's a few pics from our previous get-togethers.

This was mid-June, the last day I pumped milk. Glad I did it, but it was a lot of work (much more than nursing in my opinion), and I'm amazed at the women who keep it up for much longer!

(And yes, Conner attends these get-togethers too, but he's too busy running around with B's older siblings to take a pic!)

  1. Dear Julie
    My name is Miss.Masako Watanabe. I am a graduate student at Doshisha
    University in Japan. I am in the school of American Studies and
    specialize in bioethics. I am researching surrogacy in the U.S.
    For my research I would like to provide the public with a new
    perspective on surrogate mothers. To do this, I am wondering if it is
    possible for you to answer some questions for me. These are
    1) What motivated you to decide to become a surrogate mother?
    2) When you decided to become a surrogate mother, did anyone oppose
    decision? If so, could you tell me why they opposed your decision?
    3) Before and after delivering a baby for someone, have you changed
    opinion toward surrogacy?

    If possible, I would like you to answer those questions,but If you feel you are unable to assist me with this research, I certainly understand.
    If you can help my research, please contact me anytime.

    Thank you.
