Hi, there! I feel myself trapped and in a great despair. My GP doesn’t let me get pregnant because of my diabetes. I can’t balance my glucose level. In addition, I have some problems with my kidneys. My GP says that they won’t function properly during my pregnancy and may be a great risk both for me and my baby. I’ve visited quite a lot of diabetes forums where ladies with diabetes share their successful stories. I would risk, but my DH is against it. He doesn’t want to risk my life. He says that we would better adopt or find a surrogate. We decided to start with the second variant. As we don’t have a close friend or relative who would agree to carry and give birth to our child, we decided to go overseas and find a respectable fertility clinic that would help us find a surrogate for our baby. We’ve got interested in two clinics. The first clinic seems to be very popular among European infertile couples. However, when we visited the clinic, there were some things we disliked about it. Firstly, it turned to be very overcrowded. There were queues nearly everywhere. As there weren’t vacant seats, we had to stand nearly an hour before the fertility specialist was ready to meet us. We quite liked the doctor in charge. She turned to be very attentive to every single detail. She asked us quite a lot of questions about both my husband’s and my health condition. These were the things we really liked. We visited one more clinic, but I completely disliked it. Firstly, it was very empty. There weren’t queues anywhere. The staff was very soothing and smiley, but I don’t know why I disliked them. Now we have to make the choice: whether to choose the first clinic or continue searching. What do you think about both these clinics? Should we deal with the first one??? P.S. Is there anybody here who had to deal with surrogacy? Could you please share your stories? I really need your help.
