For the last time!

Yesterday was our beautiful little prince 3 months! Imagine 3 months have passed since we got him into our lives!

3 months with a warm heart to a little child who came to the world in a special way.

Sebastian Leon has given me something to live for, a reason to get up in the morning, a reason to go to bed at night. He is my heart.

Leon Sebastian facts:

He is almost 7 kg heavy and the whole 64 cm long, a big boy.

He is a real mom boy, arms and legs are like drumsticks as soon as he hears my voice.

He likes to be in the playpen  and watch the Mummies moving over him, then he laughed as he gasp!

He sleeps in his bed from 21:00 until 08:30 almost every night. He eats, sleeps and does in my pants! He is a perfect child of elderly parents.

I want to thank everyone who has followed me on my blog, this is the last update from me.

Just want to say one thing in the end

Here are some last photos:

In place in Delhi!

Now we have been a few days in India and had lowered our shoulders a bit and bought what we need so now we just have to wait a couple of more days and the child will be with us! We have got the date and time so now we just have to be patience until our lives finally enters a new phase.

We are currently living in a hotel for a stiff price and if we will stay here for another 30-40 days it's going to cost money, but it is not easy to move to another location when you  know about such paradise .... We count our money and se what we got, purhaps we need to cut down on som christmaspresent and so.... We will however look at apartments today.

Yesterday I washed bottles and put things into a bag that we will bing to the hospital!

Gifts are purchased and shall be packed in a few days. It's amazing what we have with us ... ..

Updates will come  as soon we know more!

Last day at work!

Today I had my last day at my job. I have worked here for 1.5 years but have really a different job that I might go back too after maternity leave in January 2012. I would prefer to go back where I stopped today and perhaps I should, but it is still a long time before I have to diside!

We have had some very hectic weeks and we now can see that the room will not be finished before we go down to meet our baby. Our parents want to work a bit with the room before we get home. Regardless, it is not normal in Norway that the baby is in a separate room until they are 4-6 months so we have a lot of time.

We are heading to India on Thursday and lands in New Delhi on Friday morning! I looking forward to it and I am afraid, but most of all, I look forward to meeting this little person who has been in the belly of our dear surrogate.

Who are you, how do you look, would you feel comfortable with us? The questions are many and I can not answer some of them. I look forward to see this little person


Tomorrow we will buy the last things for the trip and we will pack and make the apartment ready for us to be long gone and I reckon that there are several friends and family who want to stay here while we are away.

So long.....

Less liquid!

Tomorrow we are 33 weeks, so now it's not long before we get to meet our little miracle!

Yesterday, we received notification from Laxmi who told us that our dear surrogate mother had less liquid!

I must say that I really sat morning coffee in the throat (well I do not drink coffee, but I was afraid).

I luckily got help from a friend explained that this could happen and that it generally went well and that I had to try to breathe in and breathe out .....

A whole hurricane of emotions appeared with panic. I cried  for over 4 hours yesterday with joy, panic, grief and loss the whole spectrum of emotions.

On top of it all is my husband in Dubai and I miss him so, I find it very hard that he is gone when we have so much to do here at home before we can welcome the baby in our home.

Since there is so little trip from Dubai to India, he has chosen to take a trip there tomorrow to see our beloved surrogate mother, and Dr. S and her team. I do not understand quite what he want to too there, we travel to New Delhi in less than 4 weeks! So if you see a handsome Norwegian man wandering about the corridors of the Phoenix then say hi and greet him from his wife in Norway!

Because of the incident yesterday and that babyeb is so big (it is already 2.2 kg), we choose to go down to New Delhi on October 21 istendfor October 27. I can not sit at home here in the north to wait I want down to the country where our baby is! I want down to greet the Surrogates and watch her belly and give her my smile and show my gratitude.
Stay put little one....

Leaving New York is never easy :-(

Here are some photos from our trip to NYC. We had a great time and we spend a lot of money but as long as we spend it with love it is ok! We have bougth something for the baby too, but it is difficult to buy clothes in colors like white and yellow, so yes i bougth some in pink and blue. If we get a boy he will definitiv be wearing pink dresses the first tree months :-)

Leaving for New York!

Tomorrow me  and my husband are going on our last trip before the baby comes.

We are going to New York, our favorite city!

Today we are 29 weeks and it's not so long before we are holding our baby in our arms and we look forward to that. I do smile more often now, even my friends says so. You are finally smiling and ar showing everybody your feelings about the baby. And yes i am so happy and greateful for our surrogatemother S and Dr. Shivani and her team. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Last weekend I was on a trip to my two brothers to see if they had something cloths for the baby, one has not had the baby in the house for 18 years, but I found many cute clothes. If I think about it,  much of this fabric may be up to 30 years old! But after a little cleaning, they are as good as new.
The second of  my brothers has three grandchildren and there I got a bag of clothes for boy and a bag of clothes for girls. It is not easy when we don't know the gender of the baby, but that you know already!

It is moving slovlig forward with the baby's room. We will probably be finished until we travel to India, but I do not think it will be very long before. We really struggling to get hold of the Rock Star Baby furniture, so now we look for something else. I reckon we're going to check a little when we're in New York. I do like the American furniture to children's room. The Norwegian is so boring.

The days goes by with work and finding all the papers to be filled out in connection with leav from work  with pay in connection with childbirth. In Norway you can be gone for 9 months or 12 months and the father must take 2.5 months of this. We are not as lucky as Sweden, but seems in fact it is a very good deal. Of course it is not so easy with children born of surrogate, but I will get leave without pay, before I can begin my months of  leave with pay from my job.

Now it's time to pack and make me ready for the Big Apple.

Take care everyone
