An update...well kind of...

I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last post!  So let's see...since my last post we have settled on a egg donor.  She is actually the third choice fro my IP's.  It's been really frustrating for them, and me too might I add!  

The whole egg donor thing has really gotten me thinking though.  As a married and fertile woman, I chose my partner {or mate} because I fell in love with him, flaws and all.  What if you were choosing that partner based on what you deemed to be the perfect genetic match for makin' babies?  That's essentially what they are doing.  Granted, they don't have to live with there egg donor for the next 18 years or so, but they do have to live with her offspring. Well that sure throws a wrench in the whole plan eh? What a crazy decision to have to make!  This one has a twitch, that one's nose is crooked, oh and that one has a crazy voice...I can't listen to that for the rest of my life...etc...Definitely not a decision to be taken lightly.  Yes I think it would drive me to insanity.  

So as for my IP's, going through all of those profiles and choosing who you think will be the perfect one only to have them not pass their tests.  Wow, I would be frustrated too!  I really wish they were screened prior to having their profiles visible.  yeah I know there's a whole system in place for a reason, but I'm just sayin'...So anyway, we do finally have a donor and she has passed her tests. Yay!
So moving on...
  
In other news, I spoke with the Doc and he was trying to squeeze a cycle in before the end of the year.  At first I was totally on board.  Let's get this show on the road!  Then he starts working out a calender and unfortunately it would have put me traveling on Christmas eve.  Part of me wanted to say "Yes!  I'll do it!", but my little munchkins get soooo excited about Christmas that I simply could not be away so close to all of the hoopla.  So with some regret, we have pushed the transfer into January.  I think we made the right decision and my IP's agree it was the right thing to do.  

Even though we are all super anxious, having a date in mind does make the wait a wee bit more bearable.  We will all enjoy the holidays and have so much to look forward to in the new year.  So, once again we will wait...but I know it will be worth it!
