Unfortunately our last donor has had to pull put due to relationship problems and we are now back to searching for that special donor angel.....can you help us?
I’m Natalie (34) my husband is Braulio (31) we meet in 2000 when Braulio was in the US Marines. We tried and survived a long distance relationship and married in 2002. Braulio still had some time left in the Marines so after our wedding he flew back to where he was stationed, finally joining me in Dec 2002. I thought this time apart would be the hardest part of our relationship, however, this was a piece of cake compared to what we both would endure trying to bring a child into our lives. After our time apart, we spent our first year enjoying each other and decided to seriously start trying in Dec 2003, after all we were young, and surely we had time on our side?
In 2004, I had a cervical cancer scare that required surgery as well as putting TTC on hold. Once we were given the all clear, we were back to trying, but when still no baby by the end of 2005, we decided to seek help. We saw our fertility specialist in Jan 06 when I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure. The first IVF opening was for Sept that year, so in the wait time, we completed 4 rounds of IUI and even more attempts at well time intercourse, all with no success.
We have since attempted 9 rounds of IVF, each time getting only 1 or 2 viable eggs, so never enough for a frozen transfer at a later date. Sadly, none of our fertilised eggs resulted in a successful pregnancy. In our downtimes from IVF I have tried everything imaginable to improve our chances of a viable pregnancy, herbs, weight loss, acupuncture, all to no avail.
So the time had come to accept that the premature ovarian failure was holding us back from the family we are so desperate for. My friend offered to donate her eggs so she cycled for us in Feb 2009 and gave us 3 chances at becoming parents unfortunately we got 2 BFN and an Ectopic pg which totally devastated all of us, I took awhile to recover from this as it was a very unpleasant ,drawn out experience . My friend then decided to cycle for us again Dec 2010 which turned into a total disaster no thanks to our clinic. I will always be grateful for what my friend has done for us she is a true angel in my eyes. Basically after this cycle we decided to take a 1 year break. In the middle of this year we decided to start looking for another angel so we could get the ball rolling to cycle at the beginning of next year. Since then we have found 2 donors but both of them have pulled out for their own reasons. So my husband and I are back to looking for that 1 special lady who might want to help us.
Therefore, we are asking for the help of a wonderfully generous angel to donate eggs to help us achieve our dream. I ask you to remember the first time you looked into your child’s eyes and knew you life would never be the same again, the first time they put their arms up for you to gather them in your embrace, watching those first unsteady steps towards you… these are the things we want in our lives. We are even desperate for the morning sickness, sleepless nights and poopy nappies… we just want a child to love and adore. The only question remaining now is, are you the angel we are looking for?

Hi there :-)
I am very sorry to hear your donor did not work out, my best friend is going through a similar circumstance, fortunately she has found an angel bless them both! Listening to her and her partners heart ache has made me think long and hard about donor eggs, I'm 28 with three wonderful naturally conceived children 5yr boy 4yr girl and 9month boy, we are well and truly finished extending our family now and are looking to meet people who have donated eggs and who are in need of a donor, I am a honest genuine person who is a lil curvy and hates things that go to waste. I have had a scare with cervical cancer myself with a very close call and so grateful with our blessed 2nd son. I do hope you find your angel 3rd time lucky they always say it happens in 3's May God Bless You!

Thanks for stopping in It would be a wonderful gift you would be giving if you decide to go down the donor path If you would like more info on donating I would be happy to tell you as much as I know The cervical cancer scare was horrid I must say and it took years before I was fully cleared as you would probably know :| My mother always says things happen for a reason so I will go along with that and hope our 3rd go at finding another angel will be a successful one PM me if you want anymore info
