Their Hearts will go on… My heart be still…

The email I got this morning:

Dear Anwar,


We hope you are doing fine.

We would like to inform you that as per our schedule we have done USG scan for L to check the heartbeats.

Kindly find the enclosed report for the same.

We are very happy to inform you that two heartbeats have been seen during the scan.

Dr. Shivani has reviewed the reports and found everything fine with her scan reports.

L is doing fine & everything is moving perfectly ahead.

Please note that her next scan will be done within two weeks.

We will keep you updated with her further progress & new status.

Amazing. The heart beats are 132 and 136 BPM, well within the normal range. We are currently 6 weeks old.
I am in awe. This morning I cried.
I’m well on my way to becoming a father.

P.S. The doctor says the two sacs are very distinct but I only see one in each scan. I believe there are two scans of A and two scans of B.


  1. Hey buddy congrats but hey you need to fix your post and take you surrogates name out and just call her by her first namen for her privicy. Just use the first letter of it. We all learn that through the process just like I was told when I first had mine

  2. yay congrats on the heartbeats! super news

  3. My heart skipped a beat reading this! The excitement just continues to grow.

  4. !!!! 2 heart beats! As it was was envisioned so it will be xo
    love you more than you know... this is gonna be an amazing journey I cannot wait to be a part of! These are gonna be some amazing kids xoxo

    1. Thanks Nicole for your kind words. The journey has been amazing. I can't wait to continue on this amazing path!

  5. Congratulations!!! My first scan was like yours - I kept looking for the side by side picture of two sacs. I only saw one and kept emailing Neha asking if she was sure that there were two in there ;-) Yes she was sure that there were two - and just passed week 33 yesterday - soon you will be there. Also understand about your GMA - my mom told everyone when we first found out (despite being told to keep it a secret) oh well!

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words. Congrats on your milestone! So excited for you!
