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.
