Eight More Days

Some good news to share with all of you.  My Tens Unit arrived via UPS yesterday.  However, according to the new booklet of updated information they included with it this time I can't use it on the menstruating uterus or the pregnant uterus.  My RE was wrong about that one.  But I can use it on my back and limbs if I have pain there during those particular life events.

More good news to blog about; my bleeding is slowing down finally!    I might just be able to enjoy myself at the marriage retreat this weekend rather than being face down on the conference table sucking up the coldness of the table.  Bit of bad though, revving up for ovulation and that pain has already started on the right side.  If only the eggs I produced were good quality I'd not complain about the pain.  Well maybe I would complain but not as much.

Even better news.  Eight more days until the appointment at PNW.  I'm excited.  I have the donor egg profile numbers written down and will put them in my calendar book.  I'm really hoping to get my first choice as she has similar features and likes that I do along with the same blood type.  However, I do have five other donor egg profiles picked out.  J and I did take our time picking out who we'd like to be the genetic donor.  Not sure just how much it matters but two of the donors, not high on the list we have, do have a different blood type from me but the same RH factor.

This week I'm going over to Madigan and speak face-to-face with the IVF/donor egg Nurse coordinator and bring along the forms that need to be faxed.  I want to make sure that everything is in its proper place before we get to the donor egg clinic.

I'm very excited.  I'm hopeful.  The eggs we'll be getting don't have endometriosis so we have a higher chance of the pregnancy working.  I can get pregnant with my own eggs but it just doesn't want to be a viable pregnancy.

If this works, scary thought, J and I will have more hurdles in the future to cross.  But they are ones I'm more than willing to jump.  First one will be in telling family.  How much do we tell them?  Some of the family aren't all that understanding which is too bad really.

    1. I hope it works too. I don't even want to think about it not working. I keep telling myself that I'm going to be pregnant soon.
