Sorry for being a bad blogger...

However the last 5 months have been a wonderful blur!
We are all sleeping through the night now, (mostly) we have started the boys on some solids, and hopefully sitting will be mastered very shortly!  But onto the photos...

It's pitch black and you hear a baby cry (or maybe two at the same time if you are lucky)...what time is it you think to yourself.. I feel like I've been asleep for 10 hours..god I hope the baby hasn't been crying for that roll out of bed, your shoulder hits the wall as you try to get your balance you feel kind of sick and dizzy at the same time...the baby's cry is starting to get louder and more distressed, I'm coming sweet you yell run your hand along the table trying to find your phone or watch to get the time, things crash to the floor...gosh it's 3 am, I've only been asleep for an hour.

You change the nappy on auto pilot, make his bottle up (its 10 steps to the kitchen with your eyes closed), put it in his mouth then you experience those micro sleeps that people talk about when they are jerk yourself awake, thereby jerking the baby while he is trying to feed...WAKE UP! you tell yourself...5 minutes later you feel yourself drifting off to sleep again with baby in your think to yourself you'd better wake yourself up as the second baby starts crying for his bottle...OMG I never knew you could be this tired..

Then you look down into the little ones face and he's looking straight back at you, I'm awake now gorgeous I'm awake!

Little Kurt had to have an operation to fix two hernias he had in his groin, but that didnt stop his growth spurt. He is a little tiger! And there is no stopping Hudson either. They are just perfect!

                                   Are you freaking kidding me?  Nice outfit Joann? xo

                                                            Love that mobile Mum!

                                                    Kurt (he has a little conjunctivitis)

                            Heres Hudson, which reminds mummy she needs better photos of just Hudson!

We are outa here!

It's been ground hog day in our room at svelte! Our life has been broken down into beautiful 3 to 4 hour blocks...feeding, burping, changing nappies, putting to bed, cleaning up the storm that the unit turned into during last events, getting ready for it all again in a few hours.
The night feeds are now done on remote control..we have it set up so that not much thought has to go into the event.
I'm really looking forward to getting home and getting the boys into a routine and being able to utilise all the baby mod cons we have waiting for them a sterilising machine rather than steam bags just for starters!
Hudson has this eating thing down pat, Kurt is slowly getting used to it, it's actually quite a bit of work (nice work) making sure that he has had enough food every feed.

We lived through the getting out process! Just the flights left to go...we saw Poonam on the 11th feb and contracted her same day, we had all travel documents to leave by the 22nd, so 10 working days, not bad eh? The worst of the lot was the FRRO process. That was ugly, and not good with two new borns! How did you parents with triplets do it?

We met our beautiful surrogate which I will always remember, and said our good byes to all the girls at SCI. It's taken us two days to get all our gear together in our home away from home but we are SO ready to go home.

Good luck to all yet to get to this stage, the experience has definitely been worth it!


Don't make me go to the FRRO!

Bring lots of bibs & little face washers!

Together again

It has been a little scary with Kurt being so little and his feeding regime. However u tube has an abundance of training on bottle feeding premmies to give you some confidence.

It's really action packed here in our little indian home. I do not know how you couples do it with triplets!

We have only been in Delhi for..wait for it, just had to count off my fingers, then had to look up what day it was...yes Friday 5 days, is that all?
We have our most gorgeous little master Hudson, who has us just about under his control in his routine, today we pick up Kurt little master no 2. I have been holding my breath for Kurt, as he was so little, his feeding tube came out yesterday after the family trip to the doctor for the DNA tests. Aussies this is blood test not swab, so you can feed the babies before you go!
I have to say that ours was not a breeze thanks John for rubbing it in ;), due to some miscommunications it was horrific to say the least, but all done now and word is the samples have arrived back in Australia.
Poonam assistance has been great, if you only use her services to stay out of the Delhi traffic it is worth every penny!!!
The team at SCI have been very efficient, none of it could happen without Rahul and his team who will do all the driving as well as organise laundry, sim cards, money change you name it, and I do not have any complaints about svelte. Ps all you Ips on the way over, try and get a room on the mall side of the building to avoid the traffic noise and bring garbage bags...weird eh?

Now I have been having trouble with phones, cameras and Internet, so only one photo but more to follow soon now that we are's Hudson having a quick sponge bath, screamed the hotel down in the bath, so will stick to these for.a while.

And ps all you Ips considering this process....all the dramas, anxieties, sleepless nights, is soooo worth it!

Hospital again...

Our Lovely SM has been doing a great job, but the babies are still not playing nice. She was released after one week in hospital with abdominal pains, had a week out of hospital, and before I could update you all, she is back in again with the same. Im a lot calmer this time, I hope its not as bad for our SM...We are week 34...

Tough week? Not so tough after all...

I have been getting into trouble for not blogging...sorry about that.  Bit been going on...

I had all my beautiful friends and family over for a baby shower last Saturday. One special one missing was my little sister who lives too far away, but is saving to see us when babies arrive  My luck it must have been the hottest day of the year, I lost what I was drinking in champagne in sweat!  We received some beautiful thoughts and gifts and it was touching how genuinely excited and happy my nearest and dearest are for us.  As you guys know, as Ips who have been through the infertility ringer, it's hard to sit back and relax and truly believe this is all happening, so for our closest to acknowledge the extension of our family was a big thing for us!

But after a few champagnes on Saturday, Saturday night we received email from SCI, and I worked out why mums don't drink to much (it's in case they have to deal with a kiddy drama!). The email told us that our lovely sm was having contractions and stomach pain and she was admitted to hospital.

O oh, that's too early! Too early! We were 32 weeks at that stage, we had received a scan that morning and I had read (sometimes you don't need all that info from dr google) that scans have been heard to bring on labor.  No update on Sunday as SCI closed so next one was Monday night for us, babies going well but sm still in pain.  Scans for babies again on Tuesday, Tuesday night we received them and showed that babies have started powering on the weight.  We have had no further scans but have had daily updates with much the same information.  So babies sounds like they are having a great time in there and giving our poor sm trouble.  I hope that's not a sign of things to come!

So I haven't been the easiest person to live with the last week(again)  I have tried to relax about the situation, sent some crazy emails to margarida and meg as well as SCI, called my 'BFF' a few times to 'unload' and following advice started putting my energy into positive instead of negative.  Packing has started which brought on another mild reaction, as I thought I was well and truly organised....not
organised!  So that has kept me busy getting organised!

Reading blogs during the week has really brought it home as well as other ips I have been following are all getting ready for their impending births, so why wouldn't I be as well at this time?  I think it's been hard to imagine that after all this time it's actually happening!

We will not have another update until early next week as its a holiday in India as well (australia day holiday for us!) so will post if I have more information.

Congratulations to all those with beautiful babies in arms this week, and good luck to all those preparing and on their way to India.  Special good luck and thoughts to those that had an especially hard week gone, who after reading their blog put mine into perspective. Xo

Week 30

I had to check with baby headquarters what week we were in...I'd lost track.  Week 30 it only 5 to 7 weeks to go!!
That's putting things into perspective; I'm now madly downloading previously read lists of what to pack and what paperwork to start getting organised....
Nursery is finished...we are not due another update for another will post again then.

Well...just one more shelf to go in...

Best wishes to all xo
