Its been 4 and a half  five years since my first attempt to have a baby, still going on with little success a long the way. My story is long, it starts off with life being all fairy tale like and suddenly takes a steep fall and then it pauses – for a very long while. In the meantime, everyone else carried on leaving me way behind.

I have done 4 Clomid rounds, 4 IUI’s, 6 ICSI’s and a couple of herbal remedies. Despite the heartbreak and pain, I am not willing to stop trying harder. Deep inside I feel that our bundle of joy will come sooner or later if I remain patient and continue to tweak my treatment after every failed attempt. This feeling has stopped me from giving up and brought me so far so soon. Hence, I call my blog “When you cant give up”.

Updating About Me on 24th May 2016

So now I have had 2 FETs with donor eggs and still no baby to show or hold. Currently overcoming the pain and sadness associated with a chemical pregnancy from my 2nd FET.

Update on 10th November 2016

Transfer of last embryo at the end of the month. Hoping, praying and wishing.

Update on 2nd March 2017

Ready to transfer my first embryo from a double donor cycle at Serum, Athens. Really not worried, just taking it easy on myself and hoping this is it.

  1. After 11 years of emotional and physical pain and anguish we are now blessed with a beautiful daughter. I gave birth at aged 42 to a beautiful baby girl. Over many years I had help and support from people like Penny at Serum and, I thank God for Dr Amin Gorgy. My story is long but I must stress you should not give up. You will know in your heart, your head and your body, that, you can be a parent and you should keep going if you know for sure you have a chance. It is so worth the struggle. Resilience and positivity will help you along the way, good luck.x

  2. Congrats for your little baby! I had 3 bfp in Athens with Penny but I had 3 miscarriage in a row. My body attach the embrios. I have very high nk cells and tnf. How long do you take tumeric and serrapeptase before your IVF? Thank you. Monica


    1. Hi Monica
      Thanks for your wishes.
      I am sorry about your journey. I am not too sure but I took serrapeptase on Penny’s recommendation and i think i started in the cycle i wanted to transfer.

      However, turmeric i took for quite a few months. It doesnt matter if you take it for a long time.

      I wish you the very best. Message me if you need more help. Do you know your cause of failures? Just the immunes or is it other factors aswell?


      1. Hi thank you for your kind reply. I always had immunologic implantaction disfuction with nk cells that killed my embrios. My husband has azoospemia so I always need a donor….
        Take care. Monica

      1. Its alright. In my miracles section, i have posted about a lady having a baby in her late age. Extremely late age to be exact. So dont worry yourself!
        Just pray for yourself… when all doors seem closed, theres still a door that suddenly opens up due to patience and hardwork to help ourselves. Keep trying please. Xx

    1. Hi Maria.
      I am so glad my blog was able to give you courage and hope. I had actually started this blog because I knew deep inside that I was trying super hard and success would come so I wanted to have an inspirational blog. I really pray He fulfills your wishes too. Start by charity. Dont leave anything for yourself, start giving all that you can give with ease. It will amaze you.
      Ps. What did you search for that my blog came up?


  5. Hi, your blogs are amazing. I just found out I had high NK and I noticed you said you use turmeric and cinnamon to reduce the inflammation. How long did it take to reduce? I’ve start drinking turmeric with ginger homemade tea. I wish you, your husband and your son a very happy healthy life.
