Dear future Mom and Dad
I would like to start this letter by saying thank you, and how much I’m grateful for people like you in this world!
I’m thankful that you as a couple chose me through baby2mom, to assist on this amazing adventure. I need to admit that I was scared in the beginning and not sure whether it was for me or not. But I feel like GOD helped me to make the discussion on making a difference in someone’s life and helping out by being a donor for you!
I know by heart that you will be the best parents this wonderfully unborn child will have. And that you will do your very best to protect, help, assist and be there for them, in this adventure we call life. I couldn’t have asked for more caring and support, as I feel like I’ve got the best from the other donors. I am crying tears of joy and I am praying that you will be blessed with a beautiful little baby or maybe x2 little feet. You never know what GOD has in store for you.
If I look back at time and little me would’ve ever got the chance to see myself where I’m today, and what amazing part I can play, she would be very proud of me today! I am super proud of myself, needless to say how proud I’m of you. It may have been a difficult road for you – that you have walked but GOD provides to HIS children – all in good and given time.
I would like to tell you a little bit more about the adventure I had so far in experiencing everything that had to be done in order to get this far. But I just need to say my fear of needles may be cured by a 35% – 40%. Which is funny as I’m a bug sissy for needles.
-When Jenny called to ask if I would consider this, donating my eggs and explaining how everything works and given me more information about everything. I was a bit nervous and sceptical – I mean it wasn’t even 2 or 3 weeks after I’ve signed up with baby2mom.
-All in given time I decided to do this after praying about it and asked GOD to help me in the deciding. Because its a new chapter and something I can experience about how amazing stories I’m able to tell. Not long after this Jenny was calling me every day asking if i need help with petrol, and will I be able to get to the clinic, or do I need any support or if there is anything she and you as a couple can do to make it easier for me. This is when I knew that GOD has answered my prayers on everything I’ve prayed for.
-The first appointment I had at Medfem Clinic with Hanlie, the dr as well as the psychologist that evaluated me, made me a bit nervous as I was stressing that I won’t make the cut to be stable for the donation and the fact that there was a needle in the story for testing my blood.
-After a day or two everything came back 100% and I was able to start this journey as I had to go back for a scan and started my injections (or as Nurse Hanlie explained to me in a cartoon way to make more sense that my eggs need to start writing love letters, dressing up and getting ready for a date with the male which is the sperm). I thought that is was quite hilarious the way she explained. But that was the story that sticked with me after all and explaining in the big words as well. The pictures she drawed made things more clearly as well.
-After 6 days of nervously taking the injections in the morning and the pills I’ve got from at night – as well as the antibiotics in the morning for 3 days. I’ve prayed that when I go for the scan that everything woukd be perfect. As Dr Clarke was busy with my internal scan everything was perfect. 9 Eggs on each side of my tubes, except for 2 or 3 eggs that was out by 2-5 mm, where the rest was 18mm and shaped perfectly. Which gave us a total of 18 eggs which is super awesome and what they’ve wanted. But GOD had another idea with those 2/3 eggs that was small!
-After getting more hormone injections and “glue” that keeps my eggs up there and safe from harm or going down to ovulate. Spending my birthday with one bloated tummy and back pain and don’t forget about the extra injections and a ton of water I had to drink – because my tubes don’t Like anything sweet or with sugar. I may didn’t get mt birthday cake or some juice or fizzy colddrink. But I’ve got even more and exciting news two days after that. Instead of having 18 eggs I know have a total of amount of 20 PERFECTLY SHAPED, HEALTHY, AND BIG EGGS. That I can donate, to the most loving couple I’ve been working with as a 3rd party through baby2mom and Medfem Clinic.
-Everything was in place and retrieval was scheduled for Friday the 28th of Aug around 09:45. All that was left for us to do is the last x2 injections and a COVID-19 test. Which was horrible to say the least.
-Today which is on the 27th I’ve got some news thar made me unhappy, sad, angry, disappointed and a whole bunch of mixed feelings (as my COVID-19 test came back positive). Nurse Hanlie assured me that she thinks it may be a false positive as I don’t have any type of symptoms nor feeling sick or any type of fever – as my fever has been normal and average since I started with everything. I’m praying to God that my blood test will come back tomorrow negative and that I don’t have COVID-19.
Whether the test comes back positive or negative I’m still motivated and I trust God that he will provide, protect and keep me from harm coming to me or my body. I’m still going forward with the procedure on tomorrow morning. Regarding the side effects that can happen if I do test positive. Nurse Hanlie said I do have a choice if I want to stop or go forth with everything as planned, and that they will be there to support whatever I chose to do next, and explained everything to me on what is what and how it will work.
I just want to let you know as future parents I’ll be at Medfem Clinic 07:00 sharp tomorrow as planned (28/8/2020) to finish what you asked me to start and the oportunity you gave me! As I know God is within me and I will not fail and that He is protecting me..
Thank you for this amazing opportunity, but this amazing adventure it has been, the chance to get over my needle fright even if it is just 40%.
You will be the best and most amazing parents for this unborn child of yours that is to come and bless your life. It’s a gift from GOD and no one could ever asked for something more beautiful and breath taking like a child of God that is shaped perfectly in God’s hands.
May GOD bless you with a amazing child or maybe 2 whether this bundle of joy is born with pink or blue feet, ten toes, ten fingers, two ears, a nose and a mouth. May this baby be the joy, hope and blessings you’ve been waiting for so long.
Once again I would like to say thank you for letting me be apart of this journey and for walking with me every step of the way!
I’m glad to say that I’ve dine this amazing thing not just with you as future parents, but with baby2mom and Medfem clinic and all of the staff that has been there to guide me through everything.
If I do get this chance in life again, I would do it with a big smile and a beating heart. As I know I’m doing it from the bottom of my heart, with the utmost best team and guidance.
It truly has been one amazing journey for me. As I wish you an amazing pregnancy, with a beautiful baby or two.
I would like to leave you with the following inspirational words:
“GOD DIDN’T PROMISE
DAYS WITHOUT PAIN, LAUGHTER WITHOUT SORROW, NOR SUN WITHOUT RAIN,
BUT HE DID PROMISE
STRENGTH FOR THE DAY, COMFORT FOR THE TEARS, AND LIGHT FOR THE WAY”
Remember : When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty, trust in HIM full, because two things can happen
1. Either HE will catch you when you fall
2. HE will teach you to fly!
Be blessed and safe!
