back to the drawing board (again)

Well, my donor backed out...again. If you remember my first donor we picked in April got axed for primadonna behavior. I got a call today from the agency and apparently after my donor met with my RE she decided she was not going to do a cycle there. She said she didn't like the Dr. or the practice. She even went so far as to suggest that we use a different Dr!!! Can you believe it? She's 22 and has donated her eggs once and she is now an expert on RE practices. She didn't like the protocol and she didn't like the Dr. personally (who is extremely personable).

So whatever.

We're back to the drawing board. Honestly I am relieved because I was on pins and needle and thinking I'd have to wait till next week. It obviously just wasn't meant to be and I am fine with that.

Oh no, Amber I am so sorry to hear this ! That chick sounds like a loon and a prima-donna! Her nerve- she's crazy!! But how annoying for you to have to start over yet again. Did you have any back up choices picked out?

Yes, the agency is flooding my inbox with profiles right now. My head is spinning. But there are some definite candidates.

Amber:

Wow! I'm sorry to hear that and sorry that you are once again delayed. That sucks!

Just a question, did you hear those comments directly from the donor or through your RE's office? It is a very odd response.

Thinking of you,

After too many failed natural cycles to mention, discover that previously clear tubes have become blocked after surgery to remove fibroids (however, no more fibroids). Decent FSH for 40 year old

Thanks Gab. The donor told the RE's office at her appointment that she had a personal issue and she needed a week to decide if she could commit. The next day she contacted the agency and told them she didn't like the Dr. or clinic. The coordinator at the agency told me. The agency has worked with my Dr. for years, and the coordinator was just as surprised as we were. Whatever, if she doesn't like them there nothing we can do about it.

If she knew she didn't like the RE from the beginning then why move forward at all??? Some people are so selfish that they don't think of how their actions will affect others.


Trust me, there is a better donor out there for you.............................but that won't quell your disappointment of yet another delay. I'm so sorry.

Thanks Sarah. She hadn't met the Dr. before her appointment last week. Whatever. I found someone else who I like who has cycled there before, so hopefully she'll be ready to go ASAP!!
