When I read up on egg donation I didn't know what it was about. I didn't realize the impact it would have on my life.
When Jenny called me, it was the beginning of a journey that caused me to look at life differently.
I took my conception for granted. When I fell pregnant it wasn't planned and it was relatively easy. I realize now that for many conceiving does not come easily.
I met Mandy the Psychologist and she asked me if I felt I was giving a child away. No, I feel the child is not mine I just gave someone the same chance I got, the chance to feel life grow inside of you, the chance to create a bond with their little one.
The first injection was not so bad, a little prick and it was over and as the days went by it became easier until the last day when I just couldn't do it. I had to ask my mom to help.
On the day of the retrieval. I was in the waiting room feeling so nervous. But when the nurse came to get me I just felt at ease. Throughout my egg donation process I met the most amazing people. I feel a strong bond to the doctor, the nurse and on even though I have never met her, Jenny was a great source of support.
I felt like an angel and if given the chance I would do it again.
