32 weeks pregnant!

When I started this blog back in the spring, I had high hopes of updating it regularly as a space dedicated entirely to donor egg stuff. Then I got pregnant, stayed pregnant, got excited, stayed excited, and focused on my main blog.

I am 32 weeks pregnant, carrying donor egg bank twin girls who look perfect and healthy. There appears to be no sign (knock on wood) of pre-term labor or any other problems. We are counting our blessings every day and hoping we get to 35 weeks, which is when we're told we probably won't need a NICU stay and can deliver at the local hospital rather than one further away that has a NICU.

This has been a thrilling experience but the one thing I will mention is that NOT ONCE have I wished I was carrying non-DE babies. I love that we made the decision to go with donor eggs. I love that it worked. I love my daughters. There will be bumps in the road and things we'll have to deal with that DNA-linked moms won't have to deal with, but we'll deal with them in stride. We're not scared of them and we don't think about them. Right now, all we dwell on is that we are pregnant and over-the-moon excited.

  4. Your blog is amazing! I'm so happy for you! I'm sure you're inspiring many women out there! Personally I had de ivf in Ukraine. I can’t have kids without medical help. I was diagnosed with Turner syndrome. So my husband and I decided to try de ivf. When we were looking for clinic, the main criteria for us were positive reviews, professional doctors and good service. We've chosen Ukrainian clinic. Our neighbors tried donation there and the procedure was successful. They shared their reviews and thoughts about the clinic and the process with us. Also we've read some reviews of other couples, who were their clients, about good specialists, high rates of successful treatments and fertilization procedures. The clinic has good specialists and high rates of successful treatments and fertilization procedures. I’ve got pregnant from 2nd attempt. Now I have my precious girl. The clinic was just great, much to our relief! Everyone was friendly and helpful. All staff was professional. We had an English interpreter from the clinic with us at all times. She was a lovely girl and any questions were answered fully, no matter how silly you think they are to ask! Communication via email and phone was fantastic. All answers were received straight away. I couldn't hope for more caring and friendly people in so stressful time. I would recommend it to anybody. Now I have my daughter and I'm the happiest mom in the world! Speaking about price, we chose a 'Double' package for €6 900. It includes guarantees up to two attempts. They also have 'Economy' package for €4 900 with one attempt and a package for €9 900 with 5 attempts. In case of last package, the clinic promises to refund money in case of 5 failures. I have no regrets! My daughter is my little copy. The clinic controlled the whole procedure. Our program coordinator was supporting us during whole process and answered all our questions. My biggest dream came true and finally I have a family I was dreaming about for so long time. I wish you and your girls all the best! xx

  5. We just completed our DE IVF treatment at BioTexCom after three unsuccessful attempts at another clinic. We had the most positive experience. We highly recommend this clinic. On our initial consultation, we were impressed straight away when we walked into the clinic. It is very modern and all the staff that we met where extremely pleasant and friendly. We were initially greeted by a very nice lady at the main desk who took our details. Next we met with our coordinator who we had exchanged numerous emails with prior to coming to the clinic. She then introduced us to the doctor who would be performing the procedure. We were put at ease straight away by the doctor who was extremely personable and gentle. She took her time explaining the entire process in great detail. She didn’t rush at all. We left that initial consultation feeling so confident and optimistic about our decision to move to this clinic. Following that, we started the process. All communication with our coordinator was very clear and any questions that we had were answered quickly. The procedure went smoothly. Unlike our previous experiences, communication continued with the coordinator in the weeks following the procedure. She was always willing to answer any questions or concerns that we had. We are so delighted to say that our dream came through at BioTexCom. We got a positive pregnancy result!
