Sorry we have been missing in action for sooo long! I intended to keep everyone updated, but it was so hard emotionally when surromom #1 was having problems that I had to take a break and just bury myself in my work. Then, once I managed to distract myself that way, I wasn't able to come back and pick up where I left off. I have occasionally taken a few quick peeks to see how our "friends" out there in surrogacyland are doing. It has clearly been an exciting time...lots of new babies, etc...
So, when we last posted things were looking bleak for surromom #1! She did in fact miscarry. We were very sad about the loss of the twins she was carrying. In the brief time that she was carrying them, we had already become "attached" (maybe not the best way to express it, but we were very excited about them and, of course, disappointed when we knew that they were gone).
At that point, I had to find distractions because I was obsessively worried about surromom #2. In fact, during the last few months, she has had several hospital admissions. During those admissions, I want to mention that Dr. Shivani's staff was fabulous and kept us fully informed about everything. But it was scary nonetheless!
I have been counting down the weeks to the point of viability (just in case) and, now, to 37 weeks.
Today, we have reached 30 weeks! YAY! So, we are finally starting to breathe. Even if the babies were born tomorrow (knock on wood - we don't want that to happen), they would probably be fine. They are actually due on January 2, 2012 (i.e. 37 weeks), but we hear many twins decide to make their entrance even earlier than that.
Now, it is time to make plans for our trip to Delhi! Is anyone planning to spend Christmas in Delhi?
