27 Weeks (Hospital - 28 days)

We have made it to 27 weeks with one week to go until we reach our current goal of 28 weeks!   Momo is doing great.  We had a little scare Sunday night as "Ursula" (Morgan's name for her uterus) got a little angry and started acting up.  Seems Ursula was contracting on regular intervals and, where Morgan hadn't felt any contractions since being admitted, she was feeling contractions this time.  The Dr ordered her Magnesium increased from 2.5 to 3.0 (which is the highest it can go).   After an uncomfortable night Sunday,  Ursula calmed down and the contractions have all but stopped again.  Whew!   They say this is going to be a roller coaster from here on out, and they are Right!   After having such a great ultrasound on Sunday, we were all very excited about the progress we were making and then Ursula let us all know that SHE is in charge here....!

Morgan took it all in stride (natch) and is back on her regular schedule.   Cora/Maria from Modern Family had to reschedule their weekly Movie Night with Morgan due to Ursula's temper tantrum but they are back on for Thursday night.  The Hospital food is still terrible.  When you have three babies to feed, you need up to 4000 calories a day....and Momo isn't getting that so we now have people signing up to take Morgan food on a daily basis so she has something to look forward to!

Thank you to those that have reached out to Momo by email ( !.   Keep them coming.  Although she can't respond (it's really uncomfortable to email while on your side/back), she reads every one and they have really brightened up her days/weeks in the hospital.  

This Monday is Labor Day or, in our case "No Labor Day", and we will be celebrating with Morgan in San Diego.   Hope you all have a safe/happy holiday.


  1. Great to hear things are going well.
    Do you know the arizona triplet tales? Take a look the babies are "huge" and so cute.
    Waiting for week 28 to come and go.

  2. Love your blog... I just read the entire thing, I laughed, smiled and teared up. I am a surrogate for a same sex couple. I am 18 1/2 weeks pregnant with twins. It is fun reading your side of the story. My experience has been nothing short of amazing. Good luck with everything and I look forward to reading more. Gooooo MOMO!!
