Waiting for

It’s on full moon tonight ! It’s beautiful and it might bring me labor pains. Yes, Please 😘 My doctor decided to start inducing drug on next Wednesday if labor pains don’t come by next Monday, Oct 17. I believe that my baby will be besides me within next week.  

I’ve read about an article of a baby boy had been borned using DNA from 3  persons. The way of IVF was unique and it helps many couples having fetelity issues. The following is explanation of the IVF from BBC.

Two of their children had previously died from Leigh Syndrome which is a disorder passed on through genetic defects in mitochondria carried by the mother.The doctors used a method that takes all the vital DNA from the mother’s egg plus healthy mitochondria from a donor egg to create a new egg that’s then fertilised with the father’s sperm. 

Even though the egg was made by 3 persons, 99% of DNA was from the parents and 1% was from the donor. It’s like organ plant. One of your organs doesn’t belong to you originally but it works out for you. Of course it’s huge controversial issue and has been misrepresented on media. I don’t understand the medical structure, but at least it solves people’s devastating mind. I hope the baby will grow up healthily and show the world he’s ok 😉

Happy birthday to you🎂

Today is my mother in law’s birthday. I got her her favorite DVD for birthday present and my husband and I gave her one more happy news.

My husband and I have been working on fertility treatment and we tried AIH for 5 times but all failed. Honestly we devastated and felt getting lost and finally we found out new hope. He was diagnosed with varicocele and needed take the procedure. It caused a huge damage to his sparms and even though his genital was normal, hi sparms were killed because of temperature raise. So he had to go through hard time. It was not complicated surgery but I had hard time to see him after that.

This morning, we checked his sperm condition in detail for the first time after the procedur. YEY! It has an astounding  outcome.  The condition is  back to normal and we are no longer take AIH and from next month, will take timing method. He said to me “I was almost crying when the doctor told it. ” Right! This means a lot to me, too.

My mother in law is so happy to hear that. We watched her favorite DVD and eat cake together.

Tonight dinner was potato salad (shaping like a cake, I tried!), Ahiillo and Stir-fried vagitables and meat in starchy sauce!

Happy Birthday to Mother in law 🎉👯🎉
