30 Weeks

The time now become very fast. We received the report from Anjani today
The message is so nice "All is good with your surrogate and babies. Here’s the scan from 6th"
So we may have from 5 to 6 weeks from the delivery. We hope our babies will cooperate and stay there with D, our surrogate.

Here is some detail about them on the report:

The preparation at this time:
  - We received the Indian Medical Visa, so this will ease the FRRO process later to apply for Exit Permit for our twins.
  - These 2 Ted and Phil's Cocoons has arrived, we cleaned them up carefully to avoid any allergens
  - Two infant car seats also arrived, we tried to mount one in our van and did it successfully after struggling a bit with the manual.
  - Order the DNA kits from Genetica Lab in Ohio, they will send the kits around 20 April ( 1 month before babies delivery estimate date)
  - Thai send the introducing letter to Hyderabad Consulate to introduce ourselves and ask them to hold our DNA lit when it arrive to their post.
  - Thai research the consulate and FRRO processes and prepare all paperwork so we can quickly bring the babies back to US.
  - Thai  filled out applications for our children’s Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), US Passport and Social Security Card. He filled out everything and only leave the rest as  DOB, gender.
  - Ngan has prepared diapers, baby wipes, babies cloths, bottles, pacifier,…
  - For the formula, we decided to buy them later in India and do not bring any.
 
  We will nor book the flight and accommodation at this point and we will wait until hear the news from Dr. Samit or Anjani.

Ngan friends from QCV will have a baby shower for us on May 11
