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...
