An infertile woman's empty basket gets filled with hope from donor eggs.
Ha! I still have some too that I need to get rid of!
I still have my follistim pen. I'm not sure why...That's a beautiful girl!!!!
See, for a moment I actually thought she said that... She's adorable!
She is so darling. Good to do some early spring cleaning :)
Ha ha. When I went through my "bag-o-meds" to prepare for the IVF cycle I just did I found a couple of bottles of progesterone and del estrogen left over from when I did IVF to get my daughter (who is 19 months old). At first I was excited to be saving money on meds, but sadly they were expired. It's funny what we hold on to.
Amen to that! Look at that beauty. :)
So beautiful! Baby model material!
Let's see, hideous sharps canister, or radiating joy everywhere and looking mighty fine in her puffy coat BABY? Hmm, hmmm... I'm going with the baby. Very happy you got to have that symbolic moment. (Sort of thinking about making shirt with the biohazard symbol for my babies, though...)
I like your blog! My congrats with your successful de ivf. Your daughter is super cute) I think every mom has such thoughts) I'm not an exception!) But we should control ourselves. To be honest, at first I was completely against de ivf. I thought it’s unnatural and I won’t be able to love a baby of another woman. How stupid I was! This procedure was my only chance to become a mother so I persuaded myself to do it. Now I have no regrets. I look at Sammy and I consider him as my son and no one else's. We had an opportunity to give our doctor list of features we want to see in our donor. We mentioned hair color, nose and face shape, eyes, lips, etc. I should say everyone tells me my son looks like me! We told everyone, even our family, that we had simple ivf. No one can ever tell we used egg donor. Of course I’m grateful to our doctor and that girl, who donated her eggs. I will never forget what they’ve done for us! But I really have no feelings like my son is not genetically related to me or I feel differently toward him. Absolutely no! I love him with my whole heart! As soon as I knew I’m pregnant all my doubts faded away. I carried him, I felt him inside my stomach, I had toxicosis, I sang for him and read fairytales for him, I gave birth to him! He’s my son and only my! We decided we’ll not tell Sammy about egg donor. I think he doesn’t need to know that. I’m his mom and I’ll do everything for him so there will be no need for him to look for donor. We had de ivf in Ukrainian BioTexCom. We had 2 attempts in general. I’ve got pregnant from the first one. The clinic also offers «packages» with 1 or 5 attempts. So we’ve just chosen «package», which suited us the most. Hun, I wish you and your little princes all the best!
