Egg donor, what a special gift

Today a lovely lady that we never met give us the best present we can ever dream of: her eggs. Now they are at the clinic and hopefully will develop into nice embryos. I am so grateful about what she did for us. I am not sure if it will work and I hope it will. But thinking that someone could do that for us for nothing in return. She, like all the egg donors, must be a special lady. There is no word to say how thankful and blessed we are. I just wanted to say that I will never forget what she has done for us and I hope I will meet her one day. 💝

Thank you very much for your kind message. It’s not a lot but it is the least I can do. Without people like you, people like me can’t never dream of becoming a parent. For that reason I will always be grateful. It takes a lot of courage and thinking for becoming a donor. It is also demanding on your body and family. You are not obliged to do this and yet you do it for people like me. There is no words to express how grateful and thankful I am and always will be. Thanks again for helping us in achieving our dream xxx

This is so nice. I am so happy to hear that dear. People like these are a blessing for the whole humanity. That will for sure be the best present for you both. I hope they develop into nice and healthy embryos. And I hope the embryos develop into healthy baby/babies (whatever YOU want). I hope that you get baby of whatever gender you want. I hope everything goes in your favor. She surely will be a really nice and kindhearted lady. I hope you meet her someday. That would be so wonderful for you to meet her and thank her for the gift she blessed you with. She changed your life. I am so happy for both of you. Your story has inspired me. Thank you for sharing your story with everyone.

Hey happiest mimisquiz, how do you do? Since when you were ttc before taking this decision? You must have done good deeds. Your child from that lady will be the reward. From where did she getting the procedure? I heard such centers\clinics are very famous for their care specially. You know what, I am so much glad and I really appreciate you that you chose surrogacy. Some people lose heart and step back. That lady is highly appreciated. Choosing fertility treatment is such a bravery. Btw did you try IVF\ICSI or IUI before surrogacy? Please keep us update about your coming baby and give a happy news soon. Never lose your hope. I wish you very best of luck. Take care.

Hi, we have been on the IVF journey for nearly 10 years. We had several attempts to IVF/ISCI. I got pregnant at some points but sadly miscarriage...

going for egg donor or sperm donor or surrogacy is not an easy and quick decision to make. It took me personally a few years before I came to it. My husband was ready before me. We had a lots of conversations before agreeing that it was what we both wanted. Some were difficult and upsetting. This all ibf thing put a lot of pressure on relationships...

After a lot of reflection, I can say that for us what matter the most is giving unconditional love and comfort to a child and not necessarily passing on our genes. But this is only our thoughts and this might not apply to some else. We can completely understand that for some people the genes factor is important.

And you where are you on the ivf journey?

Best of luck. Take care xx

Hello all. Just want to share something related to my life. When I was youthful I generally longed for a fantastic wedding with an ideal man and afterward to have an upbeat and sound family. I got hitched to an exceptionally decent individual who has been extremely minding and cherishing. Lamentably, my fantasy of having an upbeat and sound family was not satisfied. After my marriage, my better half and I attempted to imagine a child for practically around five years. We were not able moved toward becoming guardians even in the wake of striving for straight 7 years. We intended to visit a fertility specialist. The specialist disclosed to us that we should quit striving for an infant since it can be deadly for me. I conversed with my significant other about striving for an infant yet he said no. I need to encounter the parenthood. I need to know how it feels to be a mother. I need to see my infant developing before me. This has turned out to be inconceivable for me now since I as of now was not able consider. Presently after the heart valve infection, I even can't attempt to have an infant.

Thank you very much for sharing your story with us. I feel really sad for you. I hope your health is ok now. I know it’s difficult but have you considered adoption? Personally we looked into that but felt that at the moment we preferred the egg donor route. I wish you all the best. Take care xx

Hi Mimisquiz. I feel happy after reading your post. I am glad that you found an egg donor. I feel really happy for you. I hope it works for you. I am glad that you are hopeful. A positive attitude is a necessity for obtaining positive results. Normally people pay to egg donors. However, your egg donor is such a wonderful woman. I also got my baby through IVF. My egg reserves were a week. Along with this, the quality of eggs wasn’t good too. I went for IVF with donor eggs. However, I paid to the egg donor. She was a single parent of three years old. She had to earn living for her daughter. I felt that she deserved so I did not feel bad at all about paying to her. Few women are donating eggs without asking for anything in return is doing a great job.

That is the most beautiful post I've read this past week. Just wao. A pure act of kindness. I can't imagine how happy you both will be. All I know is that it'd be one of the best things that can happen to a TTC couple. Also, she surely is a great lady. Considering she did not want anything in return, it shows how helpful of a mind she has. Further, please don't worry about if it'll work or not. Don't think negative. Try to stay positive. Don't take any stress. Avoid it as much as you can. That is the best thing to do right now. We all hope the process will work out well for you. Let us know once you have an update. I'll be thinking of you. Good luck!

Congratulations! She indeed is a great lady. You sure should meet her. Thank her in person. Tell her how her one act of kindness has changed your lives. I just can't control myself whenever I come across such acts of kindness really. It looks like on this messed up planet Earth, there are some angels. They don't want to do anything in life for themselves. Their sole purpose of existence is to help others. How beautiful is that? This is when you can only respect humanity. These people are the real human beings. I again wish you congratulations. I hope the whole process now becomes smooth for you. Like everyone, you guys deserve happiness too. Everyone does. Best of luck!
