I actually have a rather meaty donor update for a change.
Donor had her Day 3 blood work and ultrasound yesterday, which went “fabulous” according to Nurse T. That means the uterus is looking fine, and the antral count, well, quite suitable and plentiful for a 22 year old.
Can we stop for a moment and reflect on the fact that I may be receiving eggs from someone TWENTY years younger than me? Ok… 19. I don’t want to age myself that much.
Yes, my 41st birthday was yesterday. But between us, I’m calling myself 39 again. lol.
So now we await the results from the infectious disease screening this week, and if that’s good we pass the second hurdle. Last mandatory step is her psych evaluation in two weeks, and if that hurdle is cleared too, she can begin meds.
From my end? I am to start BCP’s in a few days.
[insert crickets chirping here]
It’s interesting to view an DE IVF cycle from the recipient’s perspective. I’m just waiting by the phone. A whole lot of nuthin’ going on.
Except, my weight that is. I’m down another 2 pounds this week, for a total of 17!
Now, THAT is exciting.
