We have a donor!

We met with our RE today and are moving forward with donor sperm. They took some cultures and blood from me today. I also found out what blood type I am so we were able to broaden our search. We ended up finding a donor with my blood type since we weren't having much luck with my E's. I am hoping to order the sperm wed or thurs since I have to fax over the consent form and have them put it in the computer system before I can order any.
In Condo news we had our walk through this afternoon and there was a damaged kitchen door that they still haven't repaired. E went CRAZY!!! He was ranting and raving. Hopefully they will take care of it by Wed. We are closing Wed at 2:30. We will now be house poor and not only IF poor.

Update of my life

We found two potential donors we like. We have one that has the same blood type as E and one that does not. I think we both like the one that has a different blood type than him but E feels we should pick sonmeone with the same type. We will talk to the dr about his concerns and see what he says.

I didn't realize how much a vial of sperm went for. 525?!?! I wanted to buy a lot and freeze it but after closing on the condo and doing everything for that we are tapped. Hopefully this will do the trick and we won't need too many vials.

We are closing on the condo on the 21st. It only took 3 months! Very excited. We did some shopping today so that was fun. At least that will be one iess thing to worry about in aprox. 2 weeks.

Is my husband that unusual looking?

I can't seem to find a sperm donor with the same characteristics as hubby. I'm not really asking for much....brown hair (any shade will do), blue eyes, 5'9-5'11 height and being that my husband is 240lbs I think getting a bigger guy makes more sense. O yea one other thing we would like the same blood type. I can understand that last one being a bit hard to match but everything else should be no prob right? WRONG!!! They either have blonde hair and blue eyes or brown hair and green eyes or they 6'2 and 230lbs or there 5'9 and 150lbs. Why can't one thing in this TTC process be easy?!?!?!?! I am realizing that I am just going to have to break down and give in on some of the things. I just may end up with a blonde hair green eyed kid that is 6'4 and 170lbs even though both my husband and I are short, brown haired and not exactly thin.

Everyone is pregnant but me

I hate to be bitter and all but I am. Another pregnancy announcement! Two girls I know just gave birth, two of my cousins are due in the summer, 1 friend is due in June, and now 2 in the fall. Will it ever be my time?

I think we are going with a sperm donor. I will call Monday to make an appt with RE and meet with the pyschologist. After I do that I can start looking for a donor.

Another round of IVF?

We met with the RE today and he thinks I should try another cycle. He thinks I will regret not doing it and he feels I'm not giving DH the chance to have a biological child. He understands why I wouldn't want to do a 3rd cycle. He told us all about donor sperm but doesn't want us to rush into anything. We are on a break until the summer and then we will make a choice.

PGD Results

They got the results from the PGD this am and all my embies had an unbalanced translocation. I have nothing to transfer. They had 9 embies to test ( 7 from this cycle and 2 snowbabies from last time). I can't believe this, I thought I would have 1 or 2 to transfer. My heart is broken. I will not be doing IVF again. Going to look into donor sperm and do an iui cycle or start saving for adoption.

7 eggs fertilized. I was hoping for more. I know 7 is good but I can't help but be disappointed.
