Progress Update

Well the positive news in we are nearing week 10 .... Woo Hoo!
I can't believe how quickly the time is going.

I really want the next 2 weeks to be over. Reduction will occur during week 11. I am very nervous about the procedure but remaining positive about the outcome. It is out of our hands and what will be will be.

Life in general is very hectic. I am preparing for my 30th birthday (This is where we plan to tell everyone our news) I have also been given a promotion at work. So in general lufe is full on but very exciting.

So hard to keep this under wraps. I am sure people are starting to cotton on, my latest response is that things are going well and we now have frozen embryos..... this is not a fib.
We have been very upfront with family and friend around the journey we are taking but at times this can backfire. Everytime we talk to someone we haven't seen for a few weeks the first question is "How's the Surrogacy going"
I am sure I have a guilty look on my face :)

Anyhow, please keep your fingers crossed for us for a positive outcome in the next few weeks and I hope to have more news to share soon.

We are definately Very Pregnant

Finally we have our awaited first scan.

Now we new there was a chance of multiple pregancy but imagine our disbelief we report shows 4 viable featus with Heartbeats detected.

My first thought was how could we be so stupid to transfer this many but when faced with decisions when trying to get pregnant you do what ever you think will increase the chances.

I trust our Dr and know she will do everything to support us with the challenges that are ahead but for now I feel very overwhelmed.

The report also shows a very small blood clot so SM is on complete bed rest.

Results from scan below.

7 weeks
142 HB

6 weeks 6 days
143 HB

6 weeks 1 day
126 HB

7 weeks
141 HB

Next scan will not be 4 weeks. Time to keep myself very, very busy.
