2 Down...7 to go!

Months that is... We are at 8 weeks today. It is going much faster then we thought.

Your Baby:

This week, your little tadpole is starting to look a little bit more human. Other exciting developments include:

Your baby's eyelids, ears, upper lip and the tip of his soon-to-be adorable button nose are forming.
Junior will also sprout webbed fingers and toes this week—which you'll be well aware of in a few months, as baby starts early gymnastics classes inside the tummy.

Baby's tiny heart has separated into four distinct chambers and is really ticking now—at a rate of 150 beats per minute. That's more than twice your resting heart rate (even when Brad Pitt is on the screen).

Your baby is now a little more than ½ inch long, about the size of the ro
ck in Eva Longoria's engagement ring, and is about as heavy as the check Tony Parker wrote to pay for it.

We are so blessed to be surrounded by such loving and caring friends and family. We received another unexpected baby gift this week via the postal service. My dear sister Tracy and her girls sent a beautiful baby scrapbook and a baby journal from Canada. They are absolutely perfect and they must have read our minds as we have been out looking for the perfect book to start writing all the little details down. I know you check our blog at least 10times a day for updates big Sister, so thanks once again for your thoughtful gift...we LOVE it.

We've been talking baby names constantly and 'window' shopping atBABIES''R''US

That keeps Gerry happy until I will let him actually get the check book out and start going crazy buying everything we need (and then some!!). After much research, and Gerry's extensive reading of the Baby Bargains book, we have chosen a stroller and an infant carrier/car seat and are almost settled on the furniture for the nursery. https://securepics.ebaystatic.com/aw/pics/logos/logoEbay_x45.gifhas become our best friend with scoping out great deals on some brand new baby stuff. Gerry keeps reminding me every chance he gets, 'once we hit 3 months Rhonda, time is going to fly by and we have SO much to do!'

February is going to be a very busy month for the Docs in India with so many clients there doing cycles, so we are glad that our next busy set of blood test and scans isn't until mid March. We hope that we will be able to hijack a little of their time on Skype during this special time.

We continue to receive numerous emails daily from couples and individuals from all over the world who are interested in surrogacy in India and happened upon our blog. It is so nice that they are able to have some of their questions answered through reading our blog and from personal emails exchanged back and forth. As we said since the beginning, if we are able to help just one person achieve the wonderful gift of a beautiful baby, then we have done what we set out to do, through telling the entire story of the ups and downs of our amazing journey.
