I heard back from the clinic and they finally were able to get in touch with the donor and she is scheduled to come in next week for her screening.

hi Amber, yes we picked a donor. she's done her psych screening, her lawyer has been in contact w/ mine, etc. She goes in not this coming week but next week for all of her screening w/ my doc. she seems very on top of things, so hopefully that will continue. her only knock is she has never cycled before....so that part makes me nervous. we've emaild her (thru our agency who cuts and pastes) and she wrote right back- such a nice email. Hopefully she'll be our lucky star!!

We go in on Friday teh 23rd to find out more- w will be meeting w/ the DC at that time. i know i will start lupron just a few days after that. no bcp for me as i need to get af by 11/3 in order to guarantee the december cycle. i should get af right around then, but it will be hit or miss if by 11/3 or not....so, they're starting me on lupron assuming all of my bw and us comes back fine on friday.


keep me posted w. your cycle....it would be great if we could be cycle buddies...i highly doubt many people will be cycling in december!!

Sounds good, yeah we should be right around the same time. That's cool that you got to exchange emails with her. I didn't even think to ask if we could do that...I wonder. The donor coordinator at the agency said if there was anything else we wanted to know about her she could find out, but we didn't ask anything since the profiles are pretty thorough.

Awesome!
