Today, for the first time, at 23 weeks and two days I made contact with my daughter. I held my hand against Morgan's (our surrogate's) tummy and I felt the tiniest little kick from our 1.5 pound daughter who lives on Morgan's left side! Our daughter enjoys motion; she flips and kicks often. Our 1.6 pound son who lives on Morgan's right side is more calm and enjoys his slumber, but Morgan said when he wants to move - he moves with intent.
Morgan informed me that we are in trouble, because the babies wake up around 2:00 AM or 3:00 AM each night. She thinks they get hungry. I told her she has 13 to 15 more weeks to get them in line. I often have to tell our 6 month old Frenchie, Matt Damon, that night time is for sleeping. Maybe she needs to tell our son and daughter that night time is for sleeping.
I asked Morgan if she was anxious about carrying twins. She said no. She said she would be anxious if she was bring two babies home in a few weeks.
We're bringing two babies home in a few weeks!
