I can’t believe this!

Finally I have been able to call myself pregnant haha! Ok, my name is Amelia! I live in Dubai, we moved here because of my husband’s work..

I am very happy and joyful because it has been our 12 week of my pregnancy! I mean, this treatment was SUCCESSFUL!!! Finally! You can’t imagine how happy I am. I have been smiling without a stop for hours. Yaaaay. We made it to 12 week! Finally I can calm down and enjoy my life even though there are months and months before me. But we made it!

We made it even after all of the fails we have experienced. It is an incredible feeling truly. When you get to 12 week of the pregnancy and even before that when you get your positive test result, your HCG is more than 5k and TWINS. We had egg donor ivf treatment, it was collected 12 eggs from the donor and after the fertilization 8 of them were AA+ quality. Can you imagine? I have never got something like that. My 3 previous tx on my own eggs ended up transferring 1 or 2 embryos on the 3 day because all of them were like B quality or worse and they couldn’t survive till the 5 th day when the transfer is actually performed.

My clinic had transferred 3 embryos on the blastocyst stage and 2 of them survived! I mean, can you believe that? It’s just… something unbelievable and undeniably awesome!!!

If not this I wouldn’t be able to travel to another country again for the tx, I would just be sure that it is fate, that I won’t be mother in this life at least.

  • Wow!!! Congrats!

    Did you want twins? Were you opting for having them? Or it was a grand surprise for you and your hubby? xx

  • No, of course we didn’t plan that at all, we were praying for just one embryo to stick and survive but we were blessed with two! Twins, it is amazing. The best news I have ever had honestly. I don’t think that there is something better that could make me even happier than this. Yes yes it was huge surprise to both of us, we as I sad didn’t expect something like this at all.

  • Congratulations honey!!! It is amazing! I mean, you have been through a lot and finally you made it! Congratulations!!

    PS they have transferred 3 embryos? I mean, I have never heard of such a thing, is it fine, isn’t it too much?

  • Thank you!! No, it is not a lot, I have read the laws and it is stated that in Ukraine it is legal to transfer up to 3 embryos and I’d loved it if they transferred more than 3 to have greater chances to conceive but it was enough to transfer just 3 of them so.. Oh my god I can’t believe this!

  • Really three embryos? Okay, that’s nice that you have done your research before starting the treatment! Wish you the best for all of the months that are left. :)

  • Yeah, we done our research after we have been through some unpleasant experience with another international clinic but it wasn’t in Ukraine though. You know we went for a big risk when decided to travel to Ukraine. At first I even thought of declining my dh’s proposition to try and look at Ukrainian clinics, but when we decided to just fly there and look at how all of them look in real life it was the moment where our new life was created. Now I am very thankful to my dh for being that insistent and literally begging me to make my first step into this new fertility world. Huh. I am so happy and feel like crying.. I feel like I am in Heaven!

  • Props to your husband for not letting you stop! See how important it is to not give up? Even if doctors tell you that you should just stop and nothing will ever work out don’t listen to them and maybe trying looking for another clinic which is a lot better than if you just stop. I have heard of lots of woman who have been able to conceive naturally or even carry the baby in their 70s. It is all because of their insistency; they didn’t stop and went forward attempting to make their dreams come true.

  • Hm.. I doubt that it is healthy to treat your doctor’s words as trash or something; they obviously know better what you need and don’t need. This is your bode and your health, if you think that it is completely acceptable to do whatever you want to your body than you have to understand the consequences of your choices. You may have some examples of successful treatment for some women who haven’t been able to conceive for years but how about all of those who didn’t follow the rules and prescriptions and ended up in horrible situations. I think that you surely don’t need to lose hope but you will have to listen to what is being said to you by the professionals.

  • Okay, you are right, but how will you know that you won’t succeed if you don’t try? You basically can lose your chance of getting what you want. Do you remember, years ago there has been this article about a woman who have managed to conceive through ivf donation program in Ukraine but the doctors transferred 4 embryos into her uterus because they said that she was too old and the chances for her to conceive were the lowest out of all. But when she got her HCG it was more than 8 thousand and all of the 4 embryos survived. Doctors told her to come to the clinic for the reduction procedure but she refused claiming that she will be able to deliver all of them safely.

  • Was that in biotex clinic? Because I think that was like I have found out about this clinic. And I personally think that neither of them were right, I don’t think that doctors should’ve transferred more than 3 embryos to her uterus and she should’ve come to the clinic for further appointments because the clinic is not responsible for what happens after 12 th week of the pregnancy if we’re talking about ivf treatment.

  • But what would you do in this kind of situation? Would you follow what your doctor says or rather decide on your own?

  • Of course I would follow what the doctors would say, I don’t think that what they did was completely wrong I think that there are still lots of stupid law all over the world, like for example those that forbid abortions. And if I was told to go to the clinic so they could do checkup, I would travel there. As I have told you we were really blessed to have twins. I didn’t command it to doctors but they have said that we still can have a chance to get twins if we want. I think that 3 embryos to transfer is very and very great thing because it boosts our chances to get pregnant.

  • You can command twins? How?

  • I had 3 put back in Cyprus its normal when going abroad. I was in fact going to have 4 but the law changed in Cyprus to 3 Max so we went for that :)

  • 4? When I was in Biotex, I asked my manager if it is possible because you know we weren’t sure that it all will work out, but they are very strict with this, they told me that the law won’t allow them to do so because it is very and very damaging to women's health. but 3 is considered okay.

    I hope that your treatment was okay! How are you right now?

  • Wow...congratulations...enjoy your pregnancy...

  • Thank you hun xo's

  • Congrats! Such amazing news!! xos

    PS I am interested in this one thing. You said that you were getting you treatment internationally? Why?

  • Honestly.. because of the prices, I was googling a lot and I found out that it’d be cheaper to get the tx done in the international clinic than elsewhere. Of course when we only started the tx we weren’t that experienced and we did make some mistakes like we have only found out about my current clinic where I have been getting the tx after our 3 ivf round. and it was even cheaper than our previous one.

  • Again! I want to congratulate you as well and add something from my experience. you know it is completely okay to have up to 4 egg donor ivf treatments, not everyone get their bfp from the first try and ivf de and ivf oe do differ and the influence of each of them on your bode and health is different too.

  • Really? You know even if it is I felt so tired of that, getting stimulated, spending my money on the medications and everything. We were blessed to even find the clinic that supplied us with all of the necessary medications and other things needed. It was pure luck I must say!

  • What are you trying to say about medications? The clinic gives you those? I haven’t even heard of such a thing, maybe the price of the meds is included in the payment for the actual treatment? But it is great to have hem included though you won’t have to look for them in all of the apothecaries in the city..

  • Mine did so too, I was give all of meds that were included into the protocol and didn’t have to spend my money on the medications that cost more than 3k euros. it was a blessing even though I understand that all of those was included in the contract price but still honestly it made the tx so much easier for me! The only thing I was worried about was that the stimulation could go wrong and I would have to start all over and buy the medications on my own, but the manager said that they will refund all of the receipts for the meds I would’ve brought them.

  • But if your stimulation goes wrong, you will have to start all over again, how is it possible for them to give back all of the money for the meds if you haven't been successful or will they just not include the price for the meds in your next contract or something? I don’t see how it is logical to buy the meds on your own and start the stimulation when the contract stopped I can be wrong of course but isn’t it how it works like everywhere??

  • all of the donation contracts in biotex have unlimited tries in them. so basically if you don't manage to succeed in the first 12 weeks they will start the treatment all over again. the point that they see as the point of success is your 12 weeks us picture, if everything is fine your treatment will end right there. so if your endometrium doesn't grow enough you can buy the meds for corrected protocol and then when you are in Ukraine, the clinic will refund you all of the money spent on the meds.

  • Okay, so all of those contract are guaranteed success ones? Because i have been to their website and I have seen that they have that 5 attempts ivf contract but it is only one contract that is called the guaranteed success one. Others are just for 1 or 2 attempts.

    PS do you know anything about that contract with the transfer from donation to surrogacy. because to be fair it is going to be my 4th ivf attempt and I am praying to be successful with it and it is very alluring biotex's contracts..

  • yes, they all are called guaranteed success contracts but this one of 5 attempts are one with the most popular and convenient amongst all. but even though you are planning to pay for one contract they will never make you pay more than you want they even go with convincing us to pay for the cheaper contract, I have been looking up the clinic and they have their own youtube channel where you can watch all of the different videos and the manager Anastasia (i have seen her in the clinic) was explaining the surrogacy contracts, she basically said that the standard one is the best out of all. and they have the vip one that costs 50k.

  • Huge congratulations to you, what a lovely post to read x x x

  • Thank you! Yeah, I like reading about other's happiness too xo's

  • Congratulations. Thanks for sharing your story. I wish you all the best honey. Enjoy every moment. Xx

  • Thank you so much! it was very kind of you to leave here such a kind message. i will enjoy every single moment, even when I was at the clinic, when we were praying for everything to went well, even for a single embryo, we were asking God for just one to stick, the lining was average nothing wonderful or amazing, but two of the embryos could stick and even though we have lost the third one, it is not something that would make me sad, i prefer to focus on the future of our family. i have seen how my embryos were classified as b, bc and to receive a quality embies was a real shock for us.

    xoxo

  • Words can't express how very pleased I am for you...me and the wife wish you all the very best. #FanstaticNews
