At the date of pregnancy test, to be frank, I had no hint of hope, but full of anxieties. Thought back sufferings on my wife in the past, there was nothing I could do. Pains and sufferings from these two artificial inseminations made me realize that I was not as strong as I thought before, and was really afraid of failing again. Early before the date of test, my wife was impatient to take out a pregnancy test kit for testing on herself. Looked at her in nervous, I felt distressed and worried. And I continually told her before that the result may not correct as time was not up, and just took it easy, etc.
We could not figure out how many pregnancy test kits we have consumed in the past years, and deceived ourselves that results in all of those kits were not correct, but for this time, I really wanted it was correct. No joy, but full of anxieties. In the days ahead, the two lines in kits were deeper and deeper. My little baby finally came, and looked at the happiness on my wife’s face, I was also feared. At the date of blood check, the indicators were very high, made us mistakenly believed that we had twins. And I was relieved from then on.
My wife still kept on testing every day, and I was intrigued to ask, “Why did you still in testing?” And she said, “I am afraid of missing him”. I turned my face with eyes slowly welled up in tears. Even now, in the 17th week now, I still couldn’t restrain my tears when I wrote this. Finally, came the revisiting day after the implantation, and the doctor said our baby’s heart beats were as strong as train’s whistle, I laughed this moment. Filled with my wife’s happy looks in my mind, I began to imagine what my child would be.
However, want to say here is not the story between my wife and baby, but my best appreciations for Dr. Chang and those great angels in China Medical University Hospital Reproductive Medicine Centre, with limited words to share. Although I copied all the names of angels in particular, the careless me should lose the scrip and spend such a long time to write this letter of thanks. Hope you would forgive me.
Married for eight years, the story between me and my wife was not special. From letting alone the destiny, I began to get nervous. Later, as suggested by others, we started to take many drugs, receive therapies in many ways, whether Chinese medicine, Western medicine or integration, and even visit every temple to communicate with the gods. To tell you the truth, we still behave in this way when we were in abroad. Remembered in the year of pig, my wife wanted so badly to have a pig baby, but he didn’t come to us. And in the year of ox, my wife wanted to be more like the ox baby, and she wondered if our little baby was as naughty as me. But sometimes that isn’t possible. My wife was hurt that deeply both in physical and mental, and we have dropped our thought of having a tiger baby.
Encouraged by my colleague’s success in receiving test tube treatment, we finally worked up the nerve to visit Dr. Chang, who has less commercial element, and hoped to maintain our dignities as human beings. Women in receiving artificial fertilization are suffered, and should be treated better than the normal, as they not only serve as places for embryo implantation. During the first time to visit Dr. Chang, we were not used to his means of expression, such as his “self-conceit” and straightforward talks, but latter we realized that it is his super medical skills that made him so confident, with honesty and less excessive expectation.
Now my wife looks plump, and the baby is fully cooperative, without giving my wife too much discomfort.
Thanks a million to Dr. Chang as well as beautiful angels, and I want to appreciate all the jobs you’ve done with warm hearts. You have worked hard, thank you! And hope my share will bring some comfort to you all.
