Guess What? IVF in Kuwait



Gustavo and I have been talking about having another baby since we have been married... We are never together long enough to make it happen though!

I tied my tubes when Mimster was born. I didn't think that I wanted more kids. She was a BIG surprise to me! And what a joy! She keeps us on her toes!
DJ is an easy kid. It doesn't take much to keep him happy!
I love them. They say a Mother's love only multiplies, never divides!

So- Let's start multiplying!

The first step: Get the swimmer's tested!
- I finally got Gustavo to go and spray some babies into a cup! It was very easy... You just walk in, get a cup, pay 23 KD (80.00 USD) Ummm, Release, and then in a couple hours, you have your results! Looks like Gustavo has some GOLD METAL SWIMMERS!!!! YAY!!!

Step Two:
It took me about a week... And a lot of research to decide to go in and see the doctor.
I waited for about an hour to see the doctor. He asked if I knew about IVF and I did. I broke it down the way I understood it... And clearly I was right. Then I met 'WANDA' I had an Ultra-Sound. (INTERNAL) He checked out my Uterus and said, "Looks good"

Okay- Now what?
- Hysteroscopy
- Start injections
- When my period comes, new injections
- Egg Retrival
- Egg Transfer
- Wait 2 weeks...
- Are we pregnant or Not???

Fast Forward a Day:
I got blood drawn. They took two vials to check out my hormones. My doctor said that I should get hysterscopy to check out my womb.
(Hysteroscopy is the inspection of the uterine cavity (or in my case WOMB) by endoscopy with access through the cervix) Basically- They are going to put a camera in my womb to make sure everything is okay in there.
That is a Minor Surgery... So I met with the anesthesiologist. He told me what to be ready for... then they gave me 2 pills to take in the morning of the hysteroscopy.

So I will be going in on the 18th to get that done... And then that night... I will get a class about injectables!

***To save time and money... I will have Gustavo do my injections. Bonding time!!!***

We are so excited! We have already picked names and we are hoping that we will get TWINS!!!

PS- I promise that if I use that cool IVF language, I will also have a break down or cheat sheet! That way you won't be lost like I was!!!

Wish us LUCK!!!

  1. So glad to see you blogging again! And I certainly wish you the best with the IVF. You and Gustavo really deserve some good news after the year you've been through together. But I'm sure you're both stronger and your marriage is stronger because of your hurdles :)

    1. Thanks Allyson! At first I wasn't sure if we should share it... But then I realized that there weren't many places to really find out about it... So- We will share our story. I just pray that we will not have too many let downs! I know it is in God's hands in the end! I dreamed about twins last night though! I will be sure to give you ALL the good, bad and ugly about it! That why you will have more info if y'all decide!!! XOXO

  4. I don't know much bout ivf in Kuwait. However I was on an airplane w a woman caring for twins. She told me she got pregnant on first try w DR Patrick from London hospital and her friends who used him also had babies. I think everyone on first try but one of her friends did it twice. Its worth a go.

    2. Hey just wanted to know the cost of IVF in London hospital.

      Delete
    3. The costs of the drugs was about 1000KD. As for everything else, you will have to ask while you are there. If you look under the tab of IVF you should be able to see how many eggs I had. I got pregnant the first round but sadly, it was a chemical pregnancy. I know that right now there are 4 embryos frozen there.

    4. Breakdown: 27 eggs retrieved, 21 were mature, 18 fertilized... 11 kept growing…

    1. Sadly Dr. Patrick is working w the ministry? The female Dr is doing ivf there but i dont trust her. 3 embryos and no pregnancy. Ive gotten pregnant w every transfer w less. Rushed she wore heavy perfume during transfer. Didnt feel professional.

    2. I have to say, that London hospital is the worst place to do IVF in Kuwait! Dr Patrick is the one who makes false insurance cases and cares about money only, DR. Mona is the one who has no idea what women are going through being in this situation and it is really really hard to have deal with both of them. 2 trials, both failed. My biggest regret is that I chose this clinic

    3. Dr Mona reminds of someone overdosing on antidepression medication or sniffing something.
      Did she was heavy cologne during ur transfer or dod u only transfer w dr patrick?

  8. I was trying to conceive for years after my marriage without any child, my husband was an understanding and encouraging even though deep pressure was coming from my inlaws, my husband started acting very strange at home, coming home late and not spending time with me any more, he couldn't just divorce me like that, because of the love he have for me. but i know i was loosing him gradually due to the me not giving him a child, So i became very sad and lost in life, this really make life so hard for me and a friend told me about a native spiritualist who help women to get pregnant fast, how she had helped people with this similar problem that i am going through. so i contacted her and explain to her. she will pray about my marriage and do give some herbal herbs to take and a child will be a blessing to my marriage. i never taught it could happen to me after all the years i have tried and it was a miracle three days later my husband started to apologize for all he has done and told me he is fully ready to support me in any thing i want, two weeks later i got pregnant and gave birth to my son and i and my husband we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Doc Natasha for saving my relationship and for also saving others too. continue your good work, i will drop her contact here for those who seek her help also.

  13. i am so so excited to share this testimony with everyone. i never really believed in spell casting nor magic whatsoever. i was so ignorant of the fact that one can really get pregnant by any means of spell casting. i am from Philippines, i am happily married with a new born baby(boy). i am 34 years old. i got married to my husband 7yrs ago and since then we have been battling with a problem of getting an issue. I was so frustrated as my husband threatened me of getting a new wife and his family members also threatened that i will be thrown out of the house. i looked for means everywhere but ought to no avail. to cut the long story short i contacted Priest Babaka the spell caster and today i am proud to say that i am a mother with the help of Priest Babaka. contact him now and get yours solved via his Email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com or visit his website: priestbabakatemple.webs.com
