Hi ladies, my name is Amber and I am so excited to be taking over today! @ambergraces2
I will be talking about IVF & egg donation.
My story is pretty unique but unfortunately a totally common one. I just wanted to share our story in hopes it could help any other mummas or mummas to be going through the same struggles and to let you know you are not alone!
When I was 23 I was told I had gone through menopause and our only chance of having a baby was to get my sister to donate her eggs. At 23 I really don't think I understood what laid ahead of us. For 6 months I was on clomid (a medication to make you ovulate) under went 2 operations and had my left fallopian tube removed before realising IVF was our only option. My fiance and I tried 2 rounds with my own eggs but due to having no folicles, both rounds were cancelled. With an arrange of emotions going through our heads we decided to take my sister up on egg donation. We underwent conselling, police checks and working with children's checks before getting the go ahead. Finally after months of planing and medications we made it to egg collection. My sister did an incredible job and we got 9 eggs! Unfortunately I didn't realise how fast they died. The day it came to implant the eggs I only had 2 eggs left. We implanted 1 egg but unfortunately our last egg didn't make it. 10 long days later and a negative test result I was a mess! Mentally, physically, emotionally and financially we were all drained! A few days later ( and so many tissues) we picked ourselfs up and decided to go one more round. By this stage we had no money left so this would be our last shot! Again we went through countless injections until egg collection. This time we got 13 eggs and by our day 3 transfer we had 4 left! We decided we wanted to put 2 in and freeze the last 2. 9 days later I started bleeding. I was absolutely devastated. Waking up the next morning I had to put myself out of my misery. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would see 2 lines!! I called my doctor and was sent in for an ultrasound. To our disbelief we were having twins 😍😍 I am currently now 30 weeks with boy girl twins. REST OF THE STORY IN COMMENTS xx ⬇️⬇️
