Our two little girls were born early this morning ( late afternoon Delhi time ).
Welcome to the world Lara Eileen & Amy Sarah.
Our wonderful surrogate mother is doing well and resting after a natural birth which came swiftly as a surprise to all of us. We are eternally thankful and grateful to her for helping us become the family we have wished to be for so long.
We are still in shock and are vaguely wandering around planning our departure for as soon as possible. Our little girls are in the high dependency hospital, but are doing well with good vital signs, breathing on their own, with not even an oxygen tent required, and have tried their first feed. We look forward to see how they tolerate that, and axiously wait to see how they go with the upcoming body weight loss which occurs after birth. They were born at 1.2kg & 1.5kg which is tiny, but within the normal limits for preemie babies, being born a day off 31 weeks of age. We expect our little ladies to be in the hospital for 2-3 weeks.
WE ARE FINALLY PARENTS!!!
