38 years old.
How time flies. Waw! No husband, no child …
Yesterday I was 20 years old and I’ve had all the time in the world to do things. I still have. For some things. For others things, do I still have time?
If you are alone or, at least, you have failed to have a partner or a husband it doesn’t mean you can’t and you don’t have to have a baby.
But what will the world say? Am I interested? NO!
Will the child suffer? But what if I explain all things to him/her? Does he/she will understand?
Do I feel the need to have a baby? YES!
That’s how I thought, and I decided, at the age of 38, to make a baby …
I called to a specialised clinic, and I made an appointment.
I asked the one who answered: who is the most trusted gynaecologist.
And she recommended Dr. S to me.
I presented myself at the scheduled date.
When the doctor asked what is the problem that I have, I said: “I want to make a baby.”
“Okay”, he said. Do you have a partner?
” No”. “I had one, but it didn’t worked out”.
The doctor, easily puzzled, asks me a number of questions. He’s young and open minded.
“Okay, you must do several tests”, he said.
And I started to do all the tests.
The doctor chose to make Intrauterine insemination (IUI).
I received a secret donors list and after days of searching … choices … height … eye colour … hair colour … age … etc … I chose one.
Tall, with dark hair, green eyes (like my mother).
I did a little stimulation and a procedure was done by the doctor.
I’ve been waiting for two weeks. Unfortunately, with hope, with joy…nothing happened …
