Things are clicking along slowly but surely. I spoke w/ my RE and we should be getting the tests done pretty soon. Blood Tests, Pap, etc. on the 22nd and the HSG/SIS as soon as my cycle allows. I made a spread sheet of the things we have to do before we cycle and I can't wait to start checking them off!
We had a wonderful visit w/ my family over Labor Day weekend it was great to have a nice long weekend w/ them.
We're almost down to 16 weeks!! I'm so ready to FINALLY get moving on this. I also set up a spreadsheet of the donors to make it easier to keep track of what I think of each of them. Since the DE coordinator said that we could request a donor a few months before we want to cycle I want to be ready w/ our preferences when we get in touch w/ them. I clearly have way to much time on my hands to play w/ excel.
The only downer is Banks won't say when he wants to cycle. I did talk him into considering calling before Christmas. If we call then we should be able to have our consult in January I can start my mock cycle at the end of the month and be ready to cycle in March/April if Banks agrees and everything goes smoothly. That would mean possibly (if we're lucky and it works) having a christmas/new year's baby. I'd rather start sooner of course but I can live w/ that schedule.
I'm at a good place right now and am just focusing on getting the testing taken care of so that we're ready to move forward asap! I'll feel so much better once the red tape is out of the way and we're clear to cycle when we want to.
I'm looking forward to the new year, But I'm trying to focus on the here and now. Some days are better than others. Today is a good day and I'm looking forward to a nice quiet weekend spent w/ Banks.
To everything (turn, turn, turn)There is a season (turn, turn, turn)And a time for every purpose, under heaven
Turn! Turn! Turn!
