Interview

G. - from Norway

 

 

G. from Norway

For how long were you thinking about having a baby?

Since 2008. But had to postpone it because my mom got sick. I Started my journey in 2012 with a skype call with StorkKlinik and my first insemination try in march 2013.

What where the first steps that you undertook when your wish for a baby grew?

Talked to mom and dad to explained my wish. Talked to my aunt in Denmark if she knew a good klinik. Also talked to another klinik by telephone but didn`t get a good vibe. When I talked to you in StorkKlinik I just felt welcomed and that you took this seriously.

Why did you decide to undergo fertility treatment at the StorkKlinik?

My biggest wish was kids. Always wished for a boy and a girl. I find StorkKlinik as my nr. 1 klinik, and you seemed professional and serious.

Do you know the sperm donor of your child or is he anonymous/open? And how did you decide?

I don't know the donor and my sperm donor is open. The first time I did not decide myself was the time when it worked. You did that and it worked ( my 4th insemination).

What were the reactions of your friends, and family during and after your fertility treatment?

Everybody knew I want kids for maaaany years. I had NO bad reactions. Only good and most think I am a strong woman that actually go for my dreams and did it. 

How would you explain the atmosphere at StorkKlinik?

I liked the atmosphere. Calm and smiling people. No worries.

Which words best describe the team working at the StorkKlinik?

Beautiful people, calm and smiling.

Who was your biggest support during your fertility treatment?

I really didn`t have any. But my dad, aunt and one friend talked with me when I needed.

Which situation gave you the most hope and when did you experience fear and anxiety?

Actually the last time, Friday 1 of November 2013 I felt pregnant almost immediatly. I talked to a friend and I say, I think this time it worked. It was the same feeling as the 1st time but more calm. The first time I thought I was pregnant I lost it and the 2 times in the “middle” I felt nothing. So my most hope was 14th of November when I took my first positive test. Of course I had fear that It wasn't going to last but I didn`t had any real fear or anxiety. And in week 8 when my gynocologist told me that it were more than one, I just said “Yeah.. let me see”. 2 for the price of ONE :) I just had Insemination 4 times but it took almost a year because of small complications. Lost my period a couple of times and small stuff. I also got x-ray of my fallopian tubes, and that gave me big hope, because I`ve heard from someone that this could work. And it was after that when the little swimmers got through.

Did you get to know other single women that were in the same or similar situation as you, and if so, are you still in touch with them?

I was really open on what I did, so actually more people suddenly “came forward”. One girl I went to school with did the same thing and got twins too (but with AVF) but still. She is maybe the one that actually understands how it is to be alone with two all the time. But I don`t have much contact with her. I see myself as a “normal” family, but its still just me. Almost no help but I manage. Best decision ever.

What advice can you give to other single women that are in the same situation as you?

You can do it :)  Be open. You get strength from all people that think you rock.

How does – in your opinion - the fertility treatment of a single woman differentiate from a fertility treatment of a couple?

First of all, a couple are TWO people. They have each other to support. Its really hard to cry yourself to sleep when the test is negative, so it would be nice to have another person to hold on to. I had a friend to talk to, but It`s still not the same. And that you have to go to Denmark ( I`m from Norway) to get help. God bless you all, but it would have beena bit more easy if I just could have gone to my hospital 20 minutes from me instead of 25 minutes to the airport, then take plane to Denmark and train to Købehavn to do it. And than home again. 

Also you get a lot more questions about how you got pregnant than if your 2 and why.

When I told people at the job for example, they looked at me with big eyes and didn`t say anything. So I told them that I was very open on how I did it. If anyone had questions, please ask me instead of talking around. Than many came to me. I don`t have a problem with that but as a couple I don`t think people ask so much around it. 

Please leave a quote here, if you have one:

 

I think It`s super that this is more in media and hopefully gets more easy for people who want this. I don`t think that raising a kid or more alone is worse than as a couple. 

I am never going to regret my decition with all the hard work and sleepless nights. I was blessed with twins. Girl and Boy and I could NOT be happier. I love them and am glad that they are soon 4 years old. 

Thank you all in StorkKlinik for the help and for the biggest dream coming true ever.
