Week 28 - The Start of Our Third Trimester

No news is good news and truer words were never spoken. Especially when it comes to how we, as soon to be parents worry about so many things.
Our surrogate and her family, are they well and in good health?
The Drs at Surrogacy India, are they well and in good health?
The political situation in India. Are there tensions about to boil over?
Is Noddy growing well and is everything 'normal'?

And the list goes on and on and on and on. Many of you reading this will agree and be nodding your heads when reading the above. This week we are 28 weeks into or pregnancy and this means we really are on the home stretch. Blessings have been abundant for us during the past six months and then some. We have been so fortunate to have a great support network of parents and parents to be, all in the same boat travelling the same river as us. Dr Sudhir and Yash from SI have been our rock when it has come to the medical side of things and always there to listen and help us.

We are going to start the nursery this weekend. Sunday has been put aside so that we can strip the walls of the wallpaper there and then we will undercoat and prime the wall ready for painting. We will then still have the timber moulding to install and paint and then we can set to decorating and preparing for when Noddy joins us.

On a quick side note, so as not to give this person too much precious air time. A BIG POO POO to blogger ibnzayd. You are the hideous, disgusting and filthy person not us. How dare you judge us when you do not know what is involved between our surrogate and us.

Fetal size: crown-rump 25cm (10 inches), total length 37cm (15.75 inches). Fetal weight 1.1kg (2.4 pounds).

This week the amount of tissue in your babys brain increases, and the surface of your babys brain starts to change from being smooth, to forming grooves, ridges and indentations. Your baby continues to fill out, becoming plumper and rounder in appearance.


  1. Congrats on this milestone. And have fun doing the nursery. How are deciding colors? Maybe toile!? :-) LOL (I love that you guys have the same toile pattern as us on the other side of the earth.) Enjoy the last trimaster which will probably feel faster than the 2 prior!!!

  2. YAY!!! So Happy for you guys! We leave for Mumbai in 55 days. I can't wait to see pictures of the finished baby's room. It is so funny how time consuming things are getting. We have spent 3 weeks trying to figure out daycare. We are so busy getting things done and working and planning our trip. Congrats on 28 weeks!! We will all be in India before we know it.
