Care Package

The countdown to our third ultrasound on Thursday is on and I'm starting to get extra nervous again. I hate this. I am praying that we don't have zero heartbeats and also sort of hoping there aren't three either, ugh. We will be having a too-lengthy discussion with the MFM doctor who will be doing the S/R in a few weeks if there are still three.

In the meantime, I have been keeping myself busy by buying things. Of course, I'm not buying any baby stuff. I've found two books on Amazon for little kids about gestational surrogacy! The first one I bought came on Friday and I love it. I'm going to give it to Gabby to read to her kids.

The story and the illustrations are absolutely adorable. I almost teared up reading it.

I also decided to put together a care package for Gabby. Since she's always starving, I basically bought out Trader Joe's last night with all sorts of healthy snacks for her to eat. And some chocolate. If she had been craving something, I would have bought that, but so far, she says she's just eating everything in sight.

I bought trail mix, peanut butter-filled pretzels, dried fruit, luna bars, lollipops, ginger candies, and Toblerone. I totally grabbed that Toblerone like Ross did in Friends, it was hilarious. Everyone needs a Toblerone!

Anyway, hope she likes it! I'll put the two books in there as well. Now let's just hope there is good news on Thursday.


  1. That is such a sweet gesture! I especially love the books. I'm sure she will be thrilled!

    I will be thinking of you on Thursday and praying for peace and comfort in whatever happens.

  2. That is an amazing care package- I'm sure she'll love it!

    Really hoping for good news on Thursday. Still keeping you in my thoughts.

  3. The book is absolutely too cute! I will be thinking of you this Thursday and hoping somehow things work out :)

  4. Love the books and the care package was sweet of you!
    I really hope the appt goes okay. I will be thinking about you and the babies:)
