Surrogate Update #2

My client manager (and friend) Kim was able to speak with Dr. Shivani and find out what was going on with my surromomma.  Her diagnosis is Hyperemesis Gravidarum.  Its where you vomit everyday and can't take oral feedings so you need to be on an IV.  My surrogate and babies should be fine.  The main risk is dehydration; however, since she is in the hospital and staying hydrated all should be well.  Thanks Kim for finding this out!   I also received an email from SCI today. (I must say, SCI has been sending me daily updates on my surrogate while she is in the hospital and I appreciate that).  The most recent email advises that my surrogate is still in the hospital but it sounds like she is stable now and is not throwing up (but is suffered one or two episodes of "loose motions" yesterday.  They sent some more samples to the lab and are still keeping a close eye on her.  I hope she gets completely well soon; I'm sure she has to be tired of being in that hospital.  I will keep everyone updated on what is going on.


  1. When you said she was vomiting, I thought it might be what Kate Middleton had, but did not want to alarm you (stay away from Google, please). Hope that she continues to get better.

    1. Yeah it's exactly what Kate Middleton had. It's like an extreme version of morning sickness. Poor thing. She will be okay though.

  2. I am glad to hear that she is feeling better.

  3. Praying for a speedy recovery for surromomma!

  4. Thanks evereyone! I'm hoping she recovers soon too. From looking at google, this extreme type of morning sickness is no joke.
