wish me luck!

Hello everyone! Recently we have been looking for a new clinic abroad, searching advices on the internet. And now as we have contacted them, we are going to Ukraine for our first appointment. I am really nervous, and to ease it I've decided to do this little update. Wish us luck! :)

PS. I am infertile due to pcos and to have a baby we're going to use a surrogacy option.

Thank you! I'm going to, definitely! I'm not sure whether I should write it here or not, but I'm thinking of making some kind of a diary, to make it an easier experience..

You definitely should! There are a lot of women who need advices and need to be encouraged! I, for example, have found my clinic by reading about it on a forum like this, just one woman decided to share her story with everyone. :)

That's nice! I for example was searching on the internet for clinics abroad and decided also to write on the forum to know what people think. I was advised to read more about one ukrainian clinic and I am contacting them rn.

And I totally agree with you that we have to share our experience with each other. Someday it may help somebody..:)

I know a lot of examples when someone’s success story has helped a lot of people, when you read about such a positive thing you are getting more encouraged. Doctors usually recommend this when you are getting some treatment to stay positive.

What is your progress right now? How do you feel? xx

Oh, I'm fine but a bit nervous. We are having our first trip in Kiev nest week for the appts and the contract signing. Yes-yes, I'm totally with you on this. But also it's even better when you talk to someone who wishes you all the best and you do not feel lonely at all. :)

Hi!!! Thanks for all of the good words! :)

I'm going to Kiev next week for our first appt with the dr and for the contract signing. We chose the economy package. As it's a surrogacy program with DE for us it's easier I think. We were told that we have to prepare our test certificates and have blood tests in the clinic. My dh will be donating his sperm but I do not have to do anything as I can't be stimulated and produce my oe because my pcos has gotten worse.

Our manager said all those basic things of what not to do before the tests etc. My dh isn't nervous at all, he says that if we are paying the clinic for a surrogacy program it definitely will work. I don't know why he is that sure as I'm really nervous. What if it's going to be a failure again?

I'm praying for the bfp, but we have to wait for so long. I'll definitely post here when I know the results of my fertility journey. xx

Please, update us when you are home! I'll congratulate you then! ahaha
