No word, just bills

When I started to this blog, I had hoped to write fairly frequently. However, the past couple weeks has been very quiet on the egg donor front. I was starting to get discouraged since I hadn't heard anything from our clinic. Unless you count the bills in the mail from all the blood work analysis and appointments, which so far has totaled over $1,000! Yikes! That's what happens when your health insurance isn't so great! :(

I can't believe it's been 4 weeks. I emailed the egg donor coordinator this past Monday, who responded Thursday saying she'll have a couple more egg donor profiles emailed to me after the weekend. Being Memorial Day weekend means not until after Monday. I'm thinking 'can this drag on any longer?' I'm anxious and excited to start the next step!

It's been awhile, so I've had a lot of time to think...or not think. From my last post, I was disappointed with the few egg donors that met the characteristics we desired. Sure enough, after a good night sleep, that disappointment vanished. There's never going to be an egg donor that looks like me...or is like me. So, there's no reason to get hung up on all the physical characteristics of our egg donor (though some would be nice!). It's important that she's healthy and produces great quality eggs. That's what matters, so no additional thought needed.

Bring on the egg donors, I'm waiting!
