Just wanted to update those of you who have followed my journey and for those who are considering or undergoing Donor Egg treatment.
After the longest 9 months ever …our beautiful baby boy arrived safely on Saturday 19th Nov after a swift normal delivery. Both of us doing really well.
My pregnancy ended up being completely uneventful and straightforward despite all my worries & concerns. I was an anxious wreck the first 20 weeks!! Extra private reassurance scans got me through the worst of it 🤦♀️ and keeping busy.
He is donor egg conceived but to be honest I forget that most of the time. He looks just like my daughter did when she was born, just a bigger version 🥰. I have definitely bonded quicker with him than I did with her. And honestly couldn’t love him any more than I do. He’s utterly perfect and we’re overjoyed he’s arrived safely.
To all those considering donor egg treatment…it can work out. Yes it’s a route you maybe never dreamed you’d go down. But it is a route that gives hope and a chance of having the family you dream of. It’s not an easy decision. We researched it for months and spoke to those who’d undergone the treatment successfully. We joined the Donor Conceived Network UK and Paths to Parenthub network. I watched webinairs, read blogs and books on the subject so I could be as educated as possible about the pros & cons.
To make the fairytale even more amazing, our little boy inspired our wonderful midwife to be an egg donor! And she’s already signed up with a UK agency. Hopefully another family’s life will change through her gift and our baby’s inspiration ❤️❤️
I’m always happy for anyone to DM me about DE treatment and our journey.
