Whew! All is well and we'll be picking a donor SOON!

am so sighing a huge sigh of relief!

CJ and I had our Doc follow up appointment today after all my blood work last week- I was so nervous that they were going to say I had diabetes. I had Gestational Diabetes when I was PG, and was nervous because my doctor told us that sometimes certain hormones and glucose level issues can also affect AF cycles (and mine are very irregular).

But alas, I freak out way too easily! All is well for me (*whew!*) and for CJ in the swimmer department, and he just wanted to go over our final game plan one last time. We don't need to tweak anything for us, and now that my mock cycle is over, they know how much estrogen to give me to build up my uterine lining when the "real show" happens.

And....my doc called the Schedule coordinator just for us and as soon as AF arrives (sometime after I stop my meds this coming Sunday), we will have an array of DONORS to choose from! We basically get characteristics, no pictures, but he said the recession is hitting their clinic as well, and while it's bad for them, it's good for US, as we will have more to choose from!

Our plan is to hopefully try in early -to mid- august and pray that we get lucky again!!!
OH MY! My heart! Such excitement and anticipation and fear and ....well, a wide range of emotions!!!
