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.

  6. I am just catching up and I am so sorry to read this. We lost one our babies at 12 weeks and it is such an awkward emotion to grieve the loss, to be grateful for what you still have, and to be angry that your "security" of an uneventful pregnancy has been diminished. Thinking of you guys. Big hugs.

  7. Hi guys, we too lost a twin around that age, it is awful, a tearful time, but like you we have a good single baby on the way. What is your due date ours is around the end of June.
    My partner Mark and myself have a gorgeous 6 month old daughter, Neha, believe me it is all worth it.
    Regards
