May I have a dozen eggs please??

Drumroll please..............retrieval day is Thursday, May 21st! The nurse coordinator called this afternoon with the "official" retr. date. I decided to pass on knowing follicle counts and size. This clinic is very conservative and wouldn't move forward if it was low or looked like a possible bust.

I decided to have faith in my RE and in their process. It doesn't matter what the count is at this point....it is what it is. I didn't want to get my hopes up by getting a high follie count to have a lower number at retrieval. For me, it's better to wait to see how many eggs are retrieved. Then, how many fertilize.

I'm over the moon. I can't believe I've made it this far. But then again, I 've never let anything get in the way of finding my bliss.


  1. Wooohooo!!! Good luck tomorrow! So excited for you!

  2. Personally I had de ivf in Ukraine. I can’t have kids without medical help. I was diagnosed with Turner syndrome. So my husband and I decided to try de ivf. When we were looking for clinic, the main criteria for us were positive reviews, professional doctors and good service. We've chosen Ukrainian clinic. Our neighbors tried donation there and the procedure was successful. They shared their reviews and thoughts about the clinic and the process with us. Also we've read some reviews of other couples, who were their clients, about good specialists, high rates of successful treatments and fertilization procedures. The clinic has good specialists and high rates of successful treatments and fertilization procedures. I’ve got pregnant from 2nd attempt. Now I have my precious girl. The clinic was just great, much to our relief! Everyone was friendly and helpful. All staff was professional. We had an English interpreter from the clinic with us at all times. She was a lovely girl and any questions were answered fully, no matter how silly you think they are to ask! Communication via email and phone was fantastic. All answers were received straight away. I couldn't hope for more caring and friendly people in so stressful time. I would recommend it to anybody. Now I have my daughter and I'm the happiest mom in the world! Speaking about price, we chose a 'Double' package for €6 900. It includes guarantees up to two attempts. They also have 'Economy' package for €4 900 with one attempt and a package for €9 900 with 5 attempts. In case of last package, the clinic promises to refund money in case of 5 failures. I have no regrets! My daughter is my little copy. The clinic controlled the whole procedure. Our program coordinator was supporting us during whole process and answered all our questions. My biggest dream came true and finally I have a family I was dreaming about for so long time.
