New Surro-mommy

Post by Guest on Wed 25 Feb 2009 - 18:35

Hi everyone..

My name is Shelly.. I am a 33 year old mommy and have two little ones, Gabbi and Malachi.

Wave

In 2007 I had my first IVF as a surro-mommy which I sadly miscarried at 6 weeks. I have had two cancelled cycles since then as they could not harvest my IM (intended mothers) eggs and when they could they did not fertilise. My IP's (intended parents) and I have just "called in quits" (at the end of Jan) as her AMH is too low and she is not producing eggies that make embies. Crying or Very sad She does not want to use donor eggies. It has been a long two year journey with her.

So in theory you could say that I have been TTC for someone else for the last two years!!

I have recently registered with a surrogacy agency and I am hoping to find a couple rather soon as I would love to complete a journey completely and see the joy on the IP's faces when their LO or LO's are born.

This week has not been a good week for me at all.. on Friday evening I lost my BEST friend in a car accident! :pale: I will be flying up to JHB tomorrow for her funeral on Friday and will be returning on Saturday. So, if I do not return your replies ASAP, please be patient.. I wont be around a PC for a while..

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hey Shells! Welcome to the forum!
You really have been through so much, and I am so sorry for your recent loss.

Good luck in your surro journey - what an incredible thing to do!
Hope to see you around here frequently!

Hi Eve.. thank you for the warm welcome!

I must admit that I am a bit of a forum junkie.. so you will see me around here often..

I see you have been through a HUGE amount yourself. I really hope your BFP comes soon..

Goodie..

But the bad news is that I should be packing for my trip tomorrow.. I dont want to get started.. kinda makes it all seem a little too real!

Checked out your blog.. were you also on the other forum? If memory serves me correctly, you had a "tooth" problem at one stage?? Could be wrong?

Wow that is truly amazing Shells!!! (surrogacy) Very Happy

Did you struggle to fall preggies with your 2 children?
When you get back will you please PM me?? I would like to know more about why you would like to be a surrogate mom?? I have thought about it so often, because I can't imagine how hard it is for ppl who TTC for ages & then nothing happens... I read about donating one's eggs, & thought I could do that one day Very Happy But thought it would be quite hard to be a surrogate mom??

Hi All..

Thank you for the warm welcome! Thank you

I am back from JHB.. Cant say that I enjoyed my time up there, it was very sad, but we did celebrate her life, and I will continue to do so! It helps make the heartache of not having her around, more bearable! She is now my angel-friend! Angel

Hi Shells. Welcome. I am so so sorry for your loss. I lost one of my best friends in a car accident 12 years ago as well so I know the pain you must be feeling all to well. I pray that God helps you with the strength you need to get through this. You sound like an amazing, giving person and i think what you are trying to do for others is fantastic. I wish you all the best of luck in finding a couple soon.
