Guess I finally belong here.....

I posted here once before and have been a silent lurker for a few months since. I am 43 and DH is 44. We were a waiting list for donor embryos. We were number 40 and didnt expect to get matched for awhile, but were thrilled to get an email today that we got matched!! We have 6 embryos that are ours. The donors physical characteristics match DH and I very well too, right down to the eye color. I have a high prolactin count right now, so we will have to wait a month or two before we can do the cycle for the transfer, but we are just so happy that we are finally getting going with this whole process. I'm sure I will have lots of questions as the process goes along as this is all new to me. I have never done IVF or anything. I dont have any tubes, and being over 40, embryo adoption just seemed like the way to go, and based on our news today, I guess it is!!
