Recovering from C-Section after Surrogacy

Sunday, August 21, 2011

The day finally arrived this past week. My niece was born via c-section. Giving birth to her was such a different experience from delivering my own three kids. Every pregnancy and delivery is truly unique.

I'm still very tired and uncomfortable, so this will be a short blog. My brain is starting to wrap itself around what needs to be done to recover my body now. I'm still nearly six weeks away from being cleared to exercise, but I've started focusing on my nutrition. Today I came back to SP and changed my starting weight. I'm looking forward to making progress again moving downward on the scale and just generally getting healthy again.

I plan to write more about our experience soon, but my brain is still cloudy, so writing more details will have to wait. Suffice it to say for now that looking into my niece's face stills my heart. She is such a blessing for us all. I look forward to the future in so many ways.

Excited to walk the SP path again and make a difference in my life...and others.

This is my beautiful niece! Amazing that she came from such a tiny 8 cells in my previous post to this...God is so good!

    We are looking for a good clinic to support us and guide us through the whole process.
    I'm looking for a good woman who can carry our child in her womb for 9 months with care
    I know that at this age and keeping in mind all the aspects regarding mt previous pregnancy complications getting pregnant again will be not a good idea.
    So i have convinced my husband for having a baby via surrogacy.
    For that purpose we have consulted a number of clinics and have positive reviews about surrogacy.
    Now as i and my husband are ready for surrogacy option,
    But still i am looking for a perfect lady who can help us.
    I met many women who are offering their services to many clinics regarding surrogacy.
    Tired of all the complications i had gone through during pregnancy i gave up upon the hope of having a baby.
    Now i am married again and me and my husband are thinking of having of having a baby.
    I guess keeping in aspects like me a woman should probably go for surrogacy method to have a baby..
    Please share your experience if you have any regarding surrogacy.
    Thanks in advance.

    I am also 43, got married when I was 27.
    I guess surrogacy is the only solution to my problem.
    A friend has now suggested me to search for some international clinics that do not reside in our country.
    You should also visit a surrogacy related clinic.
    I have recently found one situated in Ukraine.
    They have quite a costless package with all the facilities.
    I have had many treatments from many experts but they never turn out to work out for me the way I hope them to.
    I have tried IUI and IVF but they failed for me many many times.
    People have now told me about surrogacy and I am really thinking about going for it.
    I just need some guidelines as surrogacy is illegal in the state where I live and I am very scared.
    I just need to complete my life and my family before it is too late for me even to try.
    I think you should give it a try too because in my view it is quite a suitable procedure for women of our age
    I have pregnancy issue and complications from the past 10 years and I still am childless as I have always been.
    There must be some way to carry out everything legally, right?
    It is very difficult at times to handle the loneliness and the depression but there are always friends and family to make me feel better.
    One thing that I am very thankful for is that I never lose hope.

    I'm 43 year old now.
    I'm married now and i was married before.
    From my first marriage i had no luck with having children although i conceived for 3 times.
    I had many complications while getting pregnant.
    I was pregnant thrice but had miscarriages everytime.
    I am married for second time i want to have a baby now.
    But having a look at my previous pregnancy period i guess it is not a good idea to be pregnant again.
    So i talked to my husband and have agreed him to go for surrogacy option.
    Surrogate are willing to carry our child and the clinic had said that the surrogate will have no effect on the DNA of our child.
    The child will be off my and my husband DNA.
    I have contacted many surrogacy related clinics and had gathered a lot of information regarding this process.
    The clinic is the perfect clinic for surrogacy i guess from the reviews of its clients.
    You should also visit the clinic for surrogacy method.
    I also contacted some surrogates who are willing to carry someone's child in their womb.
    Now we are looking for a perfect surrogate to carry our child in her womb.
    I also met some mothers raising babies from surrogacy procedure.
    I guess someone here will also be going to surrogacy and will guide us.

    BioTexCom is the best clinic regarding surrogacy.
    Surrogacy is the best solution for women who are trying to have a baby.
    But are unable to conceive due to pregnancy issues.
    Like i was married once and i had also many complications regarding pregnancy.
    I conceived for three times but resulted in miscarriage.
    Now i'm married for second time at the age of 43.
    I want to have a baby of my own.
    But regarding pregnancy complications from my previous marriage i guess it is not a good idea to be pregnant again.
    I contacted a number of clinics and told them every aspect and complication regarding my previous pregnancies.
    They have suggested surrogacy as a solution to my problems.
    I also think that surrogacy is the best solution to my problem.
    Surrogate will carry our children inher womb for 9 months.
    The surrogate will go through proper testing to carry our child.
    I also had persuaded my husband for this option of having a baby.
    The clinic BioTexCom told us that the DNA of mother will have no effect on our child.
    If someone is raising a child from surrogacy please let us know about their experience.
    Thanks in advance.
