Now surrogacy only :-(

definitely, you are right, everyone deserves to be happy, everyone has chances to deal with infertility, Of course each person has her own way. Someone want to adopt a child and other one to undergo fertility treatment. Frankly, I didn’t want to be like this, I didn’t want to use a surrogate, sorry about this word, I know she wanted to help us and I appreciate her desire but I’m not a big fun of it.
I’m so sorry you have faced, how are you ? How’s your journey is moving on?
I do believe the surrogate spend time like on biotex channel, I didn’t see the surrogate personally because we just got to know that we will be parents of 2 kids and this is amazing. In some time we would see our surrogate, as we were told we will be able to do this after it reaches 12 weeks(I mean pregnancy period)
We are waiting for the next scan as well, we want to be sure our babies don’t have any chromosomal abnormalities.

I have been thinking about it for some time, I find it quite overwhelming that you get to receive all kind of updates from your managers (I imagine that surrogacy requires even more emailing time than egg donation, especially after surrogate mother gets pregnant), my manager was not staying silent for longer than 2 days and it was quite impressive. However, I think that they have slightly adjusted that video with the surrogates having fun at the swimming pool. I cannot quite imagine it at all. :slight_smile:
Good luck! <3

Thanks dear, your support is amazing, I really appreciate this.
Yes, you are right, a surrogacy involves a lot of communication between parents and manager, I ask a lot of stupid questions concerning this issue, I ask my manager to keep me always updated and she does a great work. I’m grateful to her as I think no one else would do it for me. All the time I ask her to consult the doctor, to send me everything, we have got our first scan and I had already a lot of questions. Thanks God. she is patient and help me with my curiosity.
p.s. I suppose they spend time like on video, why not?

communication is very important not to say vital when it comes to surrogacy, you obviously are going to worry and get nervous so it is necessary to receive just bits of updates when possible. so managers should always be trained to be good at it.
I have recently heard about a conference on the management part of surrogacy process, it sounds great in my opinion. Should’ve been more coverage of such themes because people, clients, and professionals, should understand the other part of the process and act accordingly.

you are totally right, a communication is really important.
I’m so nervous and my manager supports me as she can. She is so nice, and polite, gives the replies as soon as she can, I know she is busy with other couples and I try to respect that. She is doing her best.
oh, wow! A conference about surrogacy? That’s might be great? Where? I believe all infertile couples should be a part of it. I wish I could visit one too.
p.s. I would be so grateful is you tell me a bit about that? How can I find an information about conference?

You should first calm down. I understand the pain that you are going through. But you have to remain strong. Crying everyday will not help. Take time to meditate. Let the pain pof losing the child fade. Then thereafter you can focus on having a another child. In life we have to move on. It is also good that you want to move on to surrogacy. I can say it is one of the best solution. It is actually the last resort to many couples. When every other procedure has failed. This is because surrogacy has a high rate if success. You can now focus on positivity. I know of Bio tex clinic that is so good with surrogacy procedures. You can get more information here

Here one should understand the core of the clinic’s guarantee. This is not the case they guarantee you’ll get prego from the 1st attempt. Or that your surrogate will give a birth to your kid this very year. Or that your baby will be absolutely healthy or sth of this kind. It says along with guaranteed package you get unlimited number of attempts (Whether you are using own eggs or donor eggs for the procedure). In case you fail to get prego after 5 shots in a row; your body gets exhausted after meds taken or you don’t want to continue treatments --bio tex com refunds all money paid back! Which is abslutely a nice back plan to have in case of failure. But as far as I know, there hasn’t been a single episode when a couple came back home from bio tex com without their baby!! This is incredible! It means they have those guaranteed packages for people to feel even more safer with the process. This repro center does care about its IP success and does all things possible for it. Besides their live birth rates are high which is vital for the whole process!

Here are some common mistakes couples make whilst their surrogacy programs. Anastasia, the head of the English department is talking about the following in one of her videos. Sharing it here~
IP should read attached documents and follow the recommendations there. IP should provide full information, especially when talking about assessment of possibility of stimulation. Check visa arrangements between the countries. IP should confirm the dates of initial consultation before booking of tickets. In case of ovarian stimulation IP shouldn’t ignore clinic’s requirement to obtain authorization for hormonal stimulation, especially if there were oncological diseases or heart/kidney/blood conditions. IP happen to arrange the things to be finished exactly by the day of delivery indicated in the ultrasound check, without supposition that it might be premature delivery, or normal delivery but on the 36th or 38th week. IP should not ignore the recommendations to visit special classes for new parents while they’re still at home and when IP come they get scared of their babies. IP shouldn’t ignore the final checklist of the coordinators. (With exact and very clear recommendations what documents have to be prepared from IP side for the exit process.) IP should use the benefits of bio tex com emergency 24/7 helpline and not become frustrated of coordinators not answering you in the middle of the night. IP should provide exact instructions to housekeeping staff and babysitter. Follow doctor’s protocol and start self-treatment. Inform the clinic about changing of the plans and/or time limits. IP expect that the date of the second visit will be calculated during the initial consultation. IP expect us to do miracles and achieve pregnancy from 1 shipped embryo of poor quality. IP want to pay and book egg donor earlier than you come for the initial consultatio. Incorrect understanding of such concept as waiting time – not from when IP signed, but from when IP paid. IP happen to get scared after program coordinator invites them to the procedure and say they have the sperm frozen in the clinic. Public maternity house doesn’t mean that it is going to be a bad maternity house. And finally, minding the time difference.~
The clinic’s open about all the possible problems which might occur. They take time to explain things well which is very useful for successful cooperation.

So I’ve got a couple of things to share about surrogacy.
Ukrainian law on surrogacy and assisted reproduction techniques establishes that, at least, the intended father delivers half the genetic material. But the other half- the egg can be delivered by an egg donor. Nevertheless, when an egg donor is used, she remains anonymous. Well, the truth is, the general profile of surrogate women corresponds to caring, responsible, family-oriented, generous women. All in all, they do this because they wish to give others the gift of family. Besides, they are conscientious women who truly wish to participate in the process of surrogacy. Be it as it may, you should keep in mind the surrogate’s general state of health, pregnancy history and lifestyle above all.
Apart from that, common aspects that every intended parents should take into account when choosing their gestational carrier are: Diet. How willing the prospective surrogate is to follow certain guidelines as to what she should eat and what not is a crucial aspect. Remember that the diet a woman follows during pregnancy may have an impact on the unborn child’s health. Interaction. While some intended parents have a preference for being fully involved in their surrogate’s life during and after pregnancy via phone calls, Skype, appointments, etc., others do not feel this need to stay in contact that much with their surrogate. Invasive procedures. Is your surrogate comfortable with surgery and other invasive procedures that may become necessary throughout the pregnancy, such as amniocentesis? Pregnancy termination or reduction. Multifetal pregnancy reduction (MFPR) is a procedure used to reduce the number of fetuses in cases of multiple births. On the other hand, pregnancy termination or embryonic arrest is another aspect to keep in mind before signing the contract. Do you and the surrogate agree on what to do if any of these issues arose? If she is single. In case your surrogate is not married, another aspect to take into consideration is whether she is planning to date someone while she is carrying your baby. Husband’s or partner’s opinion. Conversely to the previous aspect, in case the surrogate is married or in a relationship, the opinion of her partner must be fully taken into account in order to prevent the occurrence of any problem related to paternity rights, for instance. Responsiveness. During the entire process, surrogates are sent various requests from the agency/clinic. In this sense, my advice is that you look for a responsible woman; otherwise, she may not be committed to follow the schedule. Support system. I mean whether she can count on the support of her close relatives, husband/partner, friends, etc. It is essential to evaluate what will be the support system the surrogate will have during the surrogacy process - is she going to be supported by a partner, a parent, a roommate…? Of course, intended parents may look for different characteristics in a surrogate, according to your special requirements, situation, geographic location, etc. You can always share your ideas and/or concerns with your agency or clinic in order to select that surrogate that best fits your needs. Biotex com clinic we’ve been with covers all those concerns though. Hope this helps, stay well, ladies.

Those are awesome pieces of advice!! I’m quite an overthinker as it is and I’m a little but of a control freak so I’m completely out of my depth right now with the fact that everything is so uncertain it’s something you just can’t prepare for (mentally) I just thought before I started it would be a breeze… how wrong was I!! I’m trying to remain positive but don t want to be over confident as the results may not be what I wanted. It’s tough xx

We’ve been doing with Biotex, Ukraine. If you choose this country for your surrogacy destination like we did, be ready that they don’t allow to choose surrogate there. You can meet her only after the 12th weeks of pregnancy. Since it’s gestational surrogacy, surrogate mother won’t have any genetic relation to the baby. She has to be healthy and be compatible to your blood type. Also, you won’t be able to keep in touch with your surrogate directly. Only with the help of manager who is in the meantime your translator. All surrogates are Ukrainian nationals. Age between 18 and 39. All have at least one healthy child of their own. At Biotexcom they ensured us that they have very strict restrictions as to surrogate’s health. They also go through psychological checks ups. Of course, I’m interested to know who she is and how she looks like. But maybe they are right that this is not the most essential thing about our surrogacy process. If you will be opting donor eggs surrogacy, here the situation is absolutely different! You may choose your donor. Surely, you choose who your baby will take after!! Still I haven’t learn the process of choosing a donor very thoroughly because we’re opting on our own first. They gave us two shots. If they won’t work, they will have to move to donor eggs. Wish me luck:pray:

That’s super nice Biotex allows its patients to choose the donor. Surely, dr is the last one to make the final decision. But mostly the IP’s wish coincides with the dr’s one. On the whole this is a great place to be with. The staff is awesome. Kind smiling people make you feel a bit more comforted when getting the core of the treatment plans. Special thanks to our donor 345.

Wishing you the best of luck with your coming ivf shot!! I love the way the clinic screens its potential donors. The info is detailed. The profiles contain literally ALL info on the donor’s personality, health and phsycological status. all the ladies are young and attractive. It’s definitely not easy to make the choice at once! keeping you in my thoughts.
