"I'm a childfree surrogate - I wanted to be pregnant without the "tie" of a baby"

OK so here's the belly. This week is the 25 week bump update. Last week was the 1st update, 24 weeks and hopefully the first of many. So here we are. I don't know how many changes you can really see weekly, but I have felt quite a few changes myself. I can go from looking really pregnant to not so pregnant. Here we are at 26 weeks or 6 1/2 months. Here we go at 27 weeks. I have now officially tipped the scales at 10 kilos heavier than when I wasn't pregnant. So. But here we are at 28 weeks. I think I might have said 27 weeks. That's pregnancy brain for you. Like, I visibly look pregnant from the front. Now I've got a dip here. Suppose where my hip bones are. So where I've been looking pregnant from the side for quite some time, I actually do look pregnant from the front. So here we are at 29 weeks, growing aplenty. Nice little side view. People have started asking quite frequently now when I'm due, so I'm sort of taking that as a sign that I'm getting quite big and you know, it's kind of starting to get close to the end. 3/4 of the way cooked. 30 weeks. 10 weeks to go. Not doing too bad, eh? Getting quite a bit bigger. I looked back at some of the previous videos like 24 weeks and stuff. I was tiny. I am 31 weeks. I mean you can see how big the bump is getting by how big it's getting. I'm 32 weeks and ta da it's my birthday. My birthday aside, I am 8 months pregnant. Checking along nicely. Getting rather huge 33 weeks surrogacy bump update. He's a growing the little passenger. The little baby on board is starting to take over. I'm 8 1/2 months, 34 weeks. The baby is sitting very high up. He's right here, which is a handy tea shelf. It's actually so funny looking back on the six month pregnant video now because I thought I had a bump and I look back now and it's like that love. You just had a big dinner. So without further ado, nuts. Let's get the big bump out. I do feel like I'm starting to get more rounded than just being all upfront. Yeah, so here we are. Sometimes my uterus ends up like almost digging into my sternum and my ribs and yeah, it's it's not great. 35 week surrogacy update. There we go. So getting bigger now, feeling kicks here and I was feeling them here. So I think he's flipped over and he's ran this way. So I'm kind of protrude protruding here a little bit more. This week is my 36 week update. I'm nine months pregnant. So for those of you who don't know, pregnancy is actually 10 months. So the first four gestational weeks kind of don't really count because they count it from the first day of your last. Then it's two weeks until you ovulate, and then it's two weeks until you actually find out you're pregnant. This is my 37 week update. I'm so excited. We're now full term. So here is a la bump. I would say that's one cooked baby. I'm now 38 weeks pregnant carrying a little boy for someone who can't have kids. I'm well and truly ready to pop in my favorite jumper dress again. This one served me very well during pregnancy and here we are largely in charge. Eh? I had some henna belly, henna belly done at the weekend just to make the most of the bump. It's quite monumental. Today there are 10 days until the due date. 39 week bump day. Here we are. But here we are 40 weeks plus three days and feeling rather large, yes. So I can kind of still hold it quite high up but when I relax because it's dropped quite a bit as I'm midwife LED there's been no complications. I'm considered low risk. They induce 12 days after the due date instead. So if I am still pregnant I will be induced on the 3rd of April. Babies can then take 48 hours to come after induction. Doesn't normally take that long, but yeah, worst case scenario he'll he'll be born by the 5th of April. Oh, it's the 25th of March. I really hope I'm not going to be pregnant for that much longer. You're coming tonight.
