Should we stay or should we go?

Wow, times are a changing!
I received an email from SCI that my surrogate is having mild contractions and is being admitted in the hospital. Me and the family are on the edge of our seats. I told myself that I will not pack until I officially hear that they are born (if earlier than my originally scheduled flight). I currently have everything that will be packed in their crib. FYI, if you are having twins, I would schedule your flight around week 36 (not week 38.5 as instructed). Through all of the research I have done, I haven’t heard of any twins being born after week 37 through surrogacy in India. Just my opinion, take it or leave it.

Update as I am writing this post:
Just got word from Dr. Shivani that the labor has not progressed and that we are in the clear for now. Wow, I am so happy and grateful that they will stay longer in the womb and grow as big as possible. I believe the scare was to inform my surrogate (and everyone else) to get ready for these babies! THEY ARE A COMIN’!

Let’s ROCK!


  1. Totally agree with you on the timing of twins!! Not long now - how many weeks are you? If you have any questions or anything feel free to email! We are so excited for you :-)

    1. I am about 34.5 weeks. Thanks so much for offer to help in any way. I really do appreciate it. =)

  2. You are absolutely right, Anwar. I have read majority of twins are born in weeks 36-37! Best wishes xoxo
