The countdown begins...20 weeks

Here we are. 20 weeks. Its the halfway point. The journey is 1/2 over but the ride is coming faster and faster.

Don't forget too, we have an post of surrogacy FAQs

We're starting to think more about the nursery.  We're almost done with the kitchen. I have to wire the oven and get a few more things put together and then full on to the nursery.

The kitchen after the 1-day renovation; however, the oven needs to be rewired to the panel. Change out aluminum to copper.
So a few things left to make the kitchen great, but its basically on the wrap.

I told Dustin today that if he wants to start removing the sheet rock from the INTERIOR walls in the future nursery, he can. He was SUPER stoked about that.

OH! Did I tell you!? I didn't! (I just looked at my last posts) Friends of ours who adopted a newborn (now 19-20 months) wanted to off-load a bunch of their baby stuff and offered it to us. Like a massive amount of gender neutral clothes, some toys and some really clutch items that we won't have to put on the registry now.  I mean it was A LOT of stuff. So absolutely generous of them. Though they did say, "Baby stuff is like an infection. Eventually you just need to get rid of it."

I can only imagine.

As we've been going through the last few weeks. We've gotten some sobering updates. I say sobering, because now, we're showing!

We've got 18ish weeks on the left and 19 weeks on the right.

I can't believe it. Its one of those moments when you go. OH. This IS real.

This past weekend, we got together with some friends from work. Two couples who are also pregnant. We're all within 3 months of each other. So we've already got this pretty sweet support group going on.
This is going to be a nice crew of meteorologist babies. We're all going to have hurricane season babies!!

National Coming Out Day

I totally didn't even realize today was national coming out day! We took a picture to mark the occasion.  A lot of people post and share their stories today.  Sharing their struggles and their triumphs over the hurdles, or even walls, surrounding the ability to live their truths.  Dustin and I have very different stories of our coming outs.  He's been living his truth for just about a decade before I came out to my family and more importantly to myself.  Coming out is not for everyone and today is certainly not meant to give you anxiety about coming out or not. You might find yourself in a variety of situations; from being a public personality, a conservative family, your own fears and so many other possibilities. Its not always easy.  For some, yes, its easy, you grow up in a family where you know without a shadow of a doubt that you'll be accepted for who you are.  We know, better than most, that its different for everyone.  Most of all, you do you, we'll be her

Week 24: Viability...

A lot has happened in the last month...seriously A LOT. "So why did you wait so long to post, Ryan?? "  Because I was busy!  Schedule changes at work, pushing hard to get our renovations finished, baby showers, renovations, much happening. Let's start with travel....I don't want to bury the lead story here. We went up to Wisconsin for our 21 week anatomy scan.  Dustin flew up on a Wednesday for the Thursday morning appointment. Unfortunately July is a big vacation month for my department, and save for asking co-workers to change their vacation plans with their families...I stayed behind. It was going to be hard, but I kept telling myself that its just pictures. I will have the REST of my life to spend with Beastie.  This is a cool appointment, but its just an internal photo shoot.  What really sucked was that they wouldn't be able to shoot any pictures or video in the ultrasound room.       Fast forward to the morning of the appointment.  I tex
