In 2009, I learned that there was no realistic way my best friend would ever be able to become a father -- his greatest desire in life. I decided then that I would offer to be a surrogate for him (which didn’t sound realistic at the time). A year later, I made that offer. He accepted, and in Nov. 2011 I got pregnant.

I’m writing this blog because I’m not the typical surrogate. For one, in the terms of the trade, I’m an altruistic traditional surrogate (I’m unpaid and the egg is mine) with a totally open arrangement with the dads. Most importantly, though, this is my first pregnancy (NO ONE thinks this is a good idea; most surrogates already have their own kids).

Also, we’re all gay, so this is going to be the gayest baby ever.*

What belly??

So, I intended to post this:

I'm at that unfortunate stage of development where people have begun to expect that I'll be showing, though I haven't actually started to show. This results in people exclaiming "OH! Look! You're getting a belly!!" and me begrudgingly responding with "oh... no... that's always been there..." 

But now enough people have said this that I'm beginning to doubt myself. Shouldn't I know my belly best?!?! I guess I know which of my friends pay too much attention to my body!
