Our Surrogate: M.I.A

OK, I tried being pateint really I did but I couldn't wait any longer.

I sent an email to our clinic two days ago just checking up on the final logistics and legalities prior to coming to Mumbai in 52 DAYS reply. I know from other IPs that the docs are really, really busy and both Darren and I are patient people but this was too much!

We are both so excited that our self imposed 'wait one week after sending an email' curfew went flying out the window, and just as well. We have just spoken with Dr S and our chosen surrogate, who we have had in our prayers and thoughts for months now is uncontactable, on extended holiday, M.I.A.

Many Indians enjoy vacation during the months of May and June and this is not uncommon or a first so I was a ready for the inevitable shock & disappointment.

BUGGER! We did not want to have to select another SM but, never mind. So again we find ourselves reading profiles and trying to select the best woman for the job (so to speak). How does one do this? Nevertheless we found a way to & again are happy with our choice. I am still mourning the loss of our first SM as I had played out our meeting a thousand times over in my head and we have her picture with us and talk about her and our ED regularly.

Dr S assures me that everything else is on schedule and our ED is ready for our arrival. I don't doubt him for one minute. Both Darren and I are very pleased with the service we have received from Surrogacy India and would recommend them in a heart beat.

Wow, the countdown to becoming parents has really begun!


  1. Wow! Who would have thought this was one of the things you'd have to worry about? Geeze.

    Good on you for remaining patient. Unfortunately it's one of the things we IPs have to get really good at.

    You must be getting excited! Not long to go now.

    Thanks for the lovely message you left on my blog. You're very sweet ;)

  2. Bugger. Yes, you do attached to surrogates. I wish I could take our surrogate to our new clinic. Anyway, you have a new one lined up, and time is belting by. Not long now!!

  3. The Docs are great about making sure the surrogates are committed and any issue such as this they DON'T take any chances. I know from our own personal experience. It is best that you go with another one even though you had her already in your hopes. You are both in great hands and I am very happy all things are progressing (even with a few bumps along the way).

  4. So stressful! It makes me worry about our surrogate and have followed up with SI as a result. Looking forward to seeing you in Mumbai!!!
