Well we have a few decisions to make very soon. I over think everything so it makes this very tough. First we need to decide on a sperm donor. We are buying from Cryogentic Laboratory (CLI) and we have it down to 2. 4510 and 4207. G picked 4510 so that is probably the one we will go with. I was going to order today when we got home, but they closed at 3 today!! Grrr....The plus is they just posted a thanksgiving special that is 100 dollars off, but you have to order online because they are closed till Monday. Well 4510 is actually a featured donor for November so it gets half price shipping, but when I place the order online it doesn't come up half price so I am not sure what to do. If I wait till Monday when I can talk to a real person the special won't be still running. I am going to try to order tomorrow and hope it works correctly. If it doesn't idk what I will do.
The other decision we have to make is to buy 1 or 2 IVFs. If we buy 1 its 5000 dollars plus 750 monitoring. If we buy two its 7500 dollars plus 750 for each monitoring. Each IVF comes with an FET but need to pay 750 monitoring for each FET as well. If we deliver a baby after the first IVF or an FET then we lose the 2nd IVF. If we need to use the 2nd IVF then we need to do it within a year of paying for them. I really don't want to buy 2 because of the cost, but want to because then maybe I will be more calm thinking we always have a backup. Also they told me that G could use the 2nd IVF if the first doesn't work with me and we decide to use her body instead. The one question I have for my clinic is do you have to use all frozen embryos before using the 2nd IVF? I saw that somewhere online and that could get costly if we have a bunch of eggs which wouldn't save us money then if we have to do more then the FET I get with the IVF. So I emailed them that question along with others..... they answered all the other questions, but not that one so I emailed them again with it. I am sure I wont hear back till Friday tho.
So besides these 2 things that have been driving me crazy everything has been great. G and I have been off for the last 2 days and actually we both have off till Saturday when I have to go back to work. Its been wonderful to spend time with her and we actually haven't fought at all!! I think it's because things are relaxed and we are getting time for just us!! I really needed this. The stress of TTC gets to me. We went Christmas shopping yesterday and got our hair cut today! The nicest thing tho is getting to sleep in!! I am loving that!!
Oh the Lupron shots are going well. G is very good at giving them...I really don't even feel them. I am hoping we find out on Friday (our baseline) that we don't have to start monitoring till Tuesday because if we have to start Monday then I have to call off work since it's a Holiday weekend so I won't be able to request off. One nurse told me I would have to come back Monday OR Tuesday, but another nurse told me I HAVE to come back Monday. So I am not sure which one is right. I am keeping my fingers crossed for Tuesday.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!!
