Well, its' been 6 years and I am still waiting for that BFP. This entire 6-year journey was quite nerve-wracking. I am glad that I have finally found a reliable clinic in Ukraine to start my surrogacy treatment. They gave me real hope. I have never been this positive about having a baby before. I have already signed my contract and am looking for a surrogate to carry my baby. I hope to finalize one soon and start my journey. Fingers crossed!

Things were different in my case. We did start trying after one year of marriage. However, unfortunately, nothing was working. It was a very stressful situation. I had never thought about this side of the journey. We went to a doctor after 12 months of trying. They asked us to get some tests done. This is when things took a very bad turn. We were told I suffered from a poor ovarian reserve. I was so disturbed. I thought my world had come to an end. We tried many procedures after this however, nothing was working. Now we are visiting another clinic hoping for things to work. However, I am keeping my expectations low despite the fact that they sound quite promising. Finding a good clinic is very important when you're on this journey.
-Low AMH and High FSH
-Poor Ovarian Reserve
-5 IUIs (failed)
-1 IVF (failed)
Life is a total mess
