34 Weeks!!!

Yes…34 Weeks.  It is amazing that I am at 34 weeks.  I still cannot wrap my brain around the fact that I will be on a plane, returning to India, in less than three weeks.  

As an update on my surrogate and the twins, I am happy to report that they are both doing quite well.  I received a USG report and scan last Saturday thatI will attach below.  If you remember from my previous post, Twin I weighed 1894grms (4.17lbs) and Twin II weighed 1923grms (4.23lbs).  On Saturday (33 week gestation), Twin I weighed 2503grms (approx. 5.5lbs) and Twin II weighed 2270grms (5lbs).  It’s unbelievable that both babies are now over 5lbs at 34 weeks.  I am hoping they decide to stay put until I get there on August 5th.  I can’t wait to see them, hold them, hug them, and kiss them.  I already love them! The USG report said that there was excessive liquor but SCI (and my own research) shows that it is normal with a twin pregnancy. Sometimes, it could mean that the fetus is not digesting enough of the fluid but that would be rare.


In other news, my office threw me a baby shower which was very nice.  Between the baby shower I had with friends and my office shower, I received almost everything I need for my trip to India and more.  My family wants to have a baby shower once I’m home with the babies.  This way, they will know the gender and can get gender – specific items and colors.


Well, I just wanted to do a quick update on what’s going on with me.  I hope everyone is doing well.  Please keep your fingers crossed that the little ones will stay put until I get to India.  By this time next month, you all would have met the two new additions to my life.  Talk to you later.




  1. Wow Fred, you are almost there. Can't wait to see your little ones (hopefully in 3 weeks?) Enjoy the moment :)
