Sweet Relief.

24 Weeks 1 Day

It was great to be able to see M and the babies today and I was very impressed with the staff openenss to Surrogacy.

I got to go into the room and watch the ENTIRE ultra sound, the admin assistant asked who I was (we explained) and she chatted about how great it was – so did the nurse practitioner AND the doctor! Totally surrogacy positive.

The babies were measured, the placentas were viewed and heartbeats recorded.

They were all fabulous.

And the little girls Complete Placenta Previa?

Was it Marginal Placenta Previa?


Was it Low Lying Placenta?


Her placenta was totally 100% normal. NO issues.

The stats (as I remember them – M please correct me!).

Baby A (girl) – 1 pound 4 ounces

Baby B (boy) – 1 pound 5 ounces

Cervix – 3.8cm! Totally fine.

We met the OB for all of 3 minutes. The conversation went something like this:

Doctor: You were referred for complete placenta previa, and the placenta is absolutely fine, the babies are growing on target, the fluid is great the cervix is long, we have no concerns. Do you want to do shared care so that you can continue to be monitored by us and have an emergency to come to in case of pre-term labour (of course! We don’t want to be in the situation where M is helicoptered to the states – yes that DOES happen).

So the next appointment at the twin clinic is March 23 at 30 weeks.
