I don't have much time to write a nice long post, but I do want to say that on Thursday we finalized our donor choice!
Our coordinator offered that we could know her first name if we wanted to (we do), and asked us to write a short bio of ourselves, and perhaps we'd get a response back.
So I dashed off a little bio of us, something to give her a sense of us, but without being too fact heavy (including my love of baking and my passion for tomatoes), and she wrote back with a lovely response, and it made me feel 100x more excited about choosing her as a donor. Of course, all of this is still in the realm of my fantasy, she could be a fellow baking and tomato loving bore, but I don't think so.
I will have to exercise quite a lot of motherly discipline to not encourage my children to meet her when they are 18...'cause I certainly want to!
March will probably be the month of testing for her, and figuring out how to deal with my propensity to develop cysts on hormonal birth control (nova ring, mirena, all bcp's even ortho novum, a big reason we didn't do the estrogen priming protocol last spring.)
Anyhoodle, I'm feeling so much better now, as I always do. The nice thing about being a 'pre-processor' is that I get a lot out of the way and can enjoy something when it actually happens, but I'm a pain to live with until then!
