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!!!
