Reality Check

So over the past few months I have been on all the medications needed for an IVF transfer, I've had multiple ultrasounds to make sure my uterine lining was right on track, I have went through many steps to be a surrogate. I know with all my heart that I want to be a surrogate more than anything. . . Even more so that I've met my IPs. They are the sweetest most deserving people I know. But today I went and bought my first bottle of prenatal vitamins and it made everything so real. I know  I know that might sound crazy and I know that our ending goal is a normal, healthy pregnancy but OMG we are getting so close and I am so excited that I can't even describe it.
So as I stand there yesterday in the vitamin isle trying to decide which prenatal vitamin to buy (there was ALOT of different ones) I was able to decrease my choice in half because I don't like gummy anything so those were off my list. My next thing was which one of these are NOT going to make me sick. So I went with these. They are gel capsule and have 800mcg of folic acid (which is VERY important). I ate dinner last night and took one. And NO nausea. YEAH looks like I picked the right one the first time.  So if anyone is looking for a prenatal vitamin this one gets two thumbs up from me :)

  1. New research suggests that early consumption of folic acid decreases the chances of autism. Early, as in, starting prenatal vitamins before pregnancy. Looks like you're on the right track! :D
