J and I spent the entire day in Seattle.
While up at PNW Infertility I laughed and I cried. Tears of joy.
It looks as though J and I got the last batch of eggs of our first choice donor. I looked up her profile after I got home and it is gone from the website. Lucky us.
The donor we chose is definitely proven with three babies from the four frozen embryo transfers. Her DNA test showed that she is not a carrier of any disease-causing mutation.
Oh and she has brown hair and green eyes like me. Well okay my eyes are a dark grey-green with flecks of brown but green is close enough for me.
The donor is the same blood type as J which I requested our donor to be. You never know if your child will need an organ, stem cells or blood transfusion and with J being the genetic father and same blood type we have a higher chance of a match.
We decided to transfer two embryos and freeze the rest if there are any to freeze. Most likely there will be at least one to freeze.
Because they now use a vitrification process to freeze the embryos the quality is as good as doing a fresh cycle the doctor told me.
Friday we are going back up to Seattle so that J can do his part. Most likely we'll make a day of it again and this time to to the Museum of Flight or the Seattle Underground Tour. Today we went to the Seattle Aquarium.
A few things I should mention. My RE clinic here at Madigan left me without all the test results being faxed over. They didn't send J's HIV report or my SIS report. Nice, huh? I'll be calling them tomorrow to make sure they got the message from PNW to send the rest of the papers like they were supposed to.
I'll be put on Pepcid instead of the Prilosec.
I'll continue with the 81 mg Asprin daily.
I'll be starting up on Synthroid. My thyroid test results were 3.46. Would have been nice if my clinic had told me. I used to be on Armor thyroid a few years back and about a decade ago I was on Synthroid. I guess my thyroid is flaring up again.
In about two weeks I'll be starting the birth control. From there it will be about six weeks until transfer of my frozen babies. Makes me want to weep with joy just to type that in. I'm over the moon!
