We are in search of an Egg Donor Angel in Canberra. Here’s our story:
I’m a 39 year old who married 2 years ago. My husband and I were blessed to find out we were pregnant on our first try, straight after getting married. Unfortunately, we miscarried at 7.5 weeks. We’ve been trying to start our family ever since, but without any luck. We started IVF in January this year, but after 3 failed cycles where we didn’t even make it to the egg pick up stage, our fertility specialist recommended we consider donor eggs. We recently did our 4th IVF cycle, where only 1 egg was found and unfortunately failed to fertilise. Again, our fertility specialist suggested we look at donor eggs. So, we are back to stage 1 again and will start another IVF cycle hopefully in February or March 2014 (if all goes to plan), just to give it 1 last try. We are giving it the best possible chance by also doing acupuncture and taking herbal medicines, which is supposed to optimise hormone production for pregnancy. Although we are trying to stay positive, our medical history suggests that our future IVF cycle may not work either. So, we are hoping that there is an Egg Donor Angel out there who will consider giving us the gift of life.
We are looking forward to having a little boy or girl who will be so loved and cherished by us, and spoiled rotten by Grandparents. My husband comes from a large family, so our child will have lots of cousins to play with, and we will have brothers and sisters who are experienced mothers and fathers to ask for advice.
More than anything, we want to be able to see the innocence through our child’s eyes as they do and see things for the first time. Their smile as they take their first steps, as well as their first stumble, all the way through to their first girlfriend or boyfriend and children of their own.
When I was pregnant last time, we didn’t get through the first trimester, so I’m really looking forward to getting past the 3 month stage of the pregnancy when I can finally tell family and friends that we’re pregnant, go out and buy baby clothes, pram, toys, bedding, cot, onesies, everything that will make our baby comfortable.
My husband will make such a great Dad. He’s loving, fun and energetic. He’ll teach him/her how to play AFL, cricket, soccer, basketball, swimming (he may have to learn netball if it’s a girl), whereas I’ll be the one that will comfort our child when s/he hurts themself. I’m absolutely looking forward to being a mother.
Both my husband and I are well educated and I am blessed to have a good job with generous maternity benefits. I’m able to access part time work when the time comes to spend time with our baby, and a very supportive boss, who has already had another colleague go through IVF successfully (thanks so much for paving the way).
You may wonder why we are seeking a Donor Angel before our last chance to conceive on our own. We don’t want to go through our last chance at IVF and think that it is our very last chance to fall pregnant. We would like the support of a Donor Angel so that we know that if IVF fails again, we still have another option. I hope this will take the pressure off during a time when stress only works against our goals.
I’m hoping that our Donor Angel will allow our child to know her and her family. So if you are willing to consider being an egg donor, please contact me at Eblyss01@yahoo.com.au and we can chat about a way forward.
