Egg Donor Chosen

Today J and I signed our paper work to lock in our donor.  We are moving forward with a small set of eggs, which is usually six or less eggs but at least two or three in the set.

If for some reason the donor eggs don't produce viable embryos we'll be moved onto donor embryos at no additional cost to us.  So we are now looking at donor embryos too.  We have five donor embryo groups to go over and pick which one will work for us.

I'm excited.  I'm hopeful.

J has scheduled his part for Sunday though he does feel bad about having it on that day.   Because he'll be missing church he is hoping that God understands.  "God helps those that help themselves" and from what I've been told God loves children so I think he'll be quite forgiving in this instance.  Besides we can always go to Saturday afternoon mass.

Right now I'm just wishing my Meneiere's disease flare would quiet down a bit.  The dizziness and nausea are annoying.

Today I started in on my diet.  Since we made the decision to move forward I need to get back off the weight I've piled on.  That would so far amount to almost seventeen pounds since the last transfer.  I am now at the fattest I've been in about four years.  Behind me is the elliptical.  As soon as J heads back to work in the beginning of September I'm going to get on that machine.  I paid just $12 for it but it works just fine for Jason so it should for me too.

  3. EEEEE! How exciting! And what a steal! I got mine from my mama for 20 usd. The display doesnt work though (I think a faulty wire) so I cant change the resistance. its great for working on muscle tone but I wanted it for cardio

    1. The elliptical is right behind as I type. I so want to get on it but for some reason my legs are badly swollen tonight. I'll have to wait until the swelling goes down. Thinking it is the fibromyalgia again.

  5. I think that's great that they will move you to donor embryos for free if you don't get any embryos from this cycle.

    Hoping for you!

    1. I'm so happy and I'm hopeful. So hopeful that I actually bought an un-used still newly sealed 8x8 scrapbook to put ultrasound photos in for the baby.

  10. Stopping by from ICLW- so very exciting! And how amazing is it that you'll get to move on to donor embryos at no additional cost, should the eggs fail to progress... that's fantastic! Best of luck with everything- including getting on that elliptical. Taking the first step is the hardest...

  11. That is so awesome. I hope that everything just ends up going well with the donor eggs, but that is great news that you can move to donor embryos if you need to. wishing you the best of luck!
