I haven't posted in a bit because I simply haven't had any updates lately, as we are on the waiting list with our RE's practice for donor embryos. Last Friday was my 3-months on the list mark, we were told back in August that it could be 6-12 months before we hear anything, but my RE welcomed me checking in whenever I wanted. So as not to be too much of a pest, I check in with her monthly at the start of every month. Last Friday, I send her my "time to be a pest to Dr. G" email (she gets a kick out of my dry humor, and some of our insane stories during our IF journey - i.e. doctor's office with a dead fish on the receptionist's desk, and her trying to convince me it wasn't dead when I told her it was. Trust me, it was dead, and we didn't go back to that office ever again!). She wrote back that she'd check and get back to me. Today, I come into the office, forgetting that I sent the email from my work email, and received this response from her:
"Someone just donated, will know more soon."
OMG, are you kidding me?! This is a great way to start my Monday, after such an awful week last week for my family from the impact of Hurricane Sandy (my cousin, his wife and 3-week old lost everything on the south shore of LI, and my aunt and cousin are still without power, thankfully my parents do have power so they've been housing everyone).
Please send good vibes if you can spare a few. Good luck and best wishes everyone!
