I'm feeling very lucky today. First Lu.pon shot this morning - no problem, no symptoms (knock on wood). Plus I don't have to work today. Taking care of paying for this cycle - out of pocket - and acupuncture is about all I can handle in one day.
A friend sent me this New York Times article about third-party reproduction. It's a long article, and interesting to see what someone with seeming unlimited funds can do to get "twins." I wish we all had such options. Mr. Jem and I have to have a psychological evaluation before ER to make sure we're okay with using donor sperm. Using donor is our last resort option. We will transport the 7 frozen vials (plus + vial of donor) from our previous clinic to the new one on Thursday. Oh, they did find a couple of good, motile sperm in Mr. Jem's last sample, which they froze. We'll do two more samples to freeze before ER. We are very determined to make this work. Very determined.
Happy New Year! I have a good feeling about all the good things to come this year!
