After 6yrs of secondary infertility - of trying Ivf with own eggs, acupuncture, reflexology, Chinese herbs, fitness, eating clean and no plastics & chemicals in our lives - we turned to donor eggs at the age of 45yrs old. We went with one clinic in Greece but didn’t get any viable eggs to transfer as we did PGS testing- so after another year of specialist testing ( as advised) on my husbands sperm and all tests were clear- we changed clinics and got pregnant first time with donor eggs not using PGS testing this time.
My beautiful baby girl was born at 30weeks+6 days due to me having severe pre- eclampsia and being admitted to hospital 2 weeks before she was born on 26th June , she was 2lbs 11oz. She was in intensive care for a week and now moved to a local hospital and in special care were she just needs to put on weight! We still have a long way to go before we can bring her home - but my family is now complete and we are over the moon. I’m so happy to share more of my story if I can help anyone - if you want to be a mum your dream can come true like ours did. This forum has been a godsend so thank you all for your friendship and support over the many years. You women are so strong and can do this too! All the best. Xx
