20 week update - Not what we were expecting

We have been waiting for the email to arrive from the Dr  regarding the 20 week scan for surrogate mum number two. Today marks the 20 week point. At about 9pm last light we received an email from Neha at the agency advising us that surrogate mum number 2 had been admitted to hospital the day before due to moderate bleeding. As you could imagine, the panic set in pretty much straight away. I eventually settled down and went to bed and tried to sleep however that was pretty much a pointless exercise. I left the computer on with the volume turned all the way up, hoping that we would hear any incoming email updates during the night. I kept on getting woken up by emails from ebay and trip advisor at 2 and 3 in the morning.

The surrogate mum will remain in hospital until the bleeding has stopped completely. Indications are that the bleeding is reducing however we haven't received a recent update as it is currently 1:30am in Delhi. The email from Neha said that the babies heartbeats were OK. So now the waiting game begins. I have been doing some research on the causes of bleeding during pregnancy and it appears as if it could be caused from something as simple intercourse to causes unknown. We can only hope that this is just a little bump in the road and that all will be well by the next time that I post. Peter.

  1. This is worrying news. I will tell you to not worry, but you will. get some sleep. There is nothing you can do but keep your rest up. This is very common and if you Dr Google potential causes for bleeding you will find the worst outcome, we all do it and most often things turn out just fine. Please get in touch with me if you need anything.
