Next Scan

We received our next scan of our beautiful surrogate mother #2. She is stil currently carrying healthy twins with strong heat beats. Because of what happened with our beautiful surrogate mother #1, we know to just wait until 12 weeks ........ and that feels so very far away ........ Thank you all so much for your support, thoughts and kind words. I feel so blessed to have people that understand what you are going through without having to explain in great detail. I hope that for everyone 2012 will be an amazing year full of happiness, joy and good health.

Another bump in our road

Well we received our next scan tonight from our clinic of our surrogate mother#1. Unfortuantely she has miscarried one of the twins she was carrying in our last scan. At 11 weeks, we still have a singleton with a very healthy heart beat. All tests for any nuerological abnormailties have come back negitive, which is somewhat good news out of this devastating bump in our road to becoming parents. The hardest thing is that last Friday a very close friend and workmate of mine passed way suddenly and unexpectedly. She was only 42 years old. We flew together for years. She was like an Aunty to me. The devastation it has cause to our close circle of friends, the family and all the other pilots and cabin crew has just been horrible. Heaven has definitely gained one of the most amazing angels it could have ever hoped for. So I would have to say, it's not the most amazing start to 2012 but we are staying positive ....... This process is full of emotions, ups and downs, highs and lows - you just have to take one day at a time and remember it will all be worth it when you have them in your arms.

The New Year

Firstly, I would like to apologise for my lazy blogging. So much has happened since my last blog. As you could imagine, being in the aviation industry, over the Christmas and New Year period the airline does not stop and it is one of the busiest times of our year. 

6th December 2011

Our Surrogate Mother #1 had a scan revealing 2 pregnancy sacs. We were both very excited. Looking forward to next scan.

13th December 2011

Our Surrogate Mother #1 had a heartbeat test. It revealed healthy heartbeats. 

15th December 2011

Our third cycle embryos (from the genetic material that was not successful from the second cycle) were cultured to day 6 and were transferred. 

4 embryos were transferred. 

The BHCG results are due on 23 December 2011.  So fingers crossed.

20th December 2011

Our Surrogate Mother #1 was admitted to hospital with bleeding. 

The next 7 days were full of emotions and daily updates from the clinic advising us of her status.

23rd December 2011

After a long anticipated day of checking emails, we were finally informed our Surrogate Mother #2 was pregnant with a BHCG of 360.15. Talk about the best Christmas present.

27th December 2011

Our Surrogate Mother #1 was discharged from hospital. We were informed everything was going OK with her pregnancy. 

28th December 2011

Our Surrogate Mother #1's scan still showed positive heartbeats. This obviously put out minds at ease after the last 8 days.

9th January 2012

Our Surrogate Mother #2's heartbeat test showed 2 healthy heartbeats.  

Our Surrogate Mother #1's scan showed she was still carrying twins with healthy heartbeats.

We are both very excited. Bring on the 12 weeks green zone!!!
