“It wasn’t easy actually.
For the first 4 days, Ice’s eggs are not growing and his right ovary is not producing eggs significant enough to be harvested so natakot kami ng slight kasi baka hindi enough yung maharvest and for a time ako yung natatakot na baka hindi magrespond yung body nya sa meds. But ito na nga, finally, nagstart mag grow ng eggs nung mga 6th until we got to this day. Sobrang salamat talaga Lord kasi naniniwala kami na if it’s meant to be, mangyayari at mangyayari.
Ok. I’m rambling i know. Pasensya na guys. Matagal -tagal na rin akong hindi ganito ka-candid. I mean, i used to be a lot more open and vocal about my feelings but a lot has changed since I became a public servant. But at this very moment, I’m shamelessly asking for your PRAYERS and POSITIVITY para maging successful yung harvest process nya. Salamat sa lahat ng sumuporta sa marriage namin ni Ice at sa naniwala na we can live our lives like normal families. This is a big step for us and I just hope that everyone gives their love and support.” -Liza Diño – Seguerra
Recently, the couple went viral on social media as they had taken a big decision to finally undergone a procedure for them to have a baby. It was reported that Ice’s eggs were harvested for a fertilization process called In Vitro Fertilization or IVF. The eggs will be combined with a sperm from a donor in a laboratory and after being fertilized will be implanted to Liza’s uterus who will act as a surrogate.

Liza could not help but be proud of her partner’s full commitment and dedication. She also shared that Ice had been preparing for it since October last year and that he was the only transman who had taken estrogen just for the success of the process. The procedure went well and Liza divulged that three healthy eggs were extracted from Ice and she was very grateful to the Lord that the procedure had been a success!

Today is THE DAY. Ice's eggs are going to be harvested after a 12-day "turok sa lubot" (butt injection) process. Im here at the waiting room, and ngayon lang sya nagsisink-in sa akin. We are really doing it!!! And today marks the first phase in our journey to have a baby. For the last 12 days, I tried to normalize everything. I went with him sa first day ng injection nya but after that, we both went back to our daily routine and isang beses ko na lang ulit sya nasamahan. It's not because I'm not excited, we've been looking forward to this since the time we got married although laging nadedelay or kapos kami sa funds so kahit sinasabi ko na mangyayari sya, parang dream lang. Parang pinoproject mo lang yung pangarap mo. But within the walls of this clinic, may navalidate ako sa sarili ko today…may fear ako sa hospitals. Grabe yung aversion ko. Ang lamig ng pawis ko ngayon and sitting here right now sa waiting room, while he's inside, I'm asking myself if I ever made him feel that I wasn't there enough kasi di ko sya nasasamahan. But I'm so proud of him. Sobra. When we had our check up and we finally made that decision na this is the right time sobrang full on commitment ang binigay nya. Since last year October, Ice has been preparing himself for this day. He started taking Estrogen pills to prepare his body for the process. Sya lang yata ang transman na nagtetake ng estrogen (hahaha!) but he is determined, WE are both determined that we're going to try to fulfill our wish to have a new member sa family, Amara's wish to have a sibling and mommy C and Daddy Dick's wish na magkaron ng sarili nilang apo. Ice has been very diligent sa pagtake ng pills nya. And ito ngang 12-day process na gawing pantay-pantay ang laki ng mga eggs nya, sobrang naging patient and optimistic sya. So please pray for us. Positivity and well wishes are super appreciated. Love you guys❤️
