370

370.

It's just a number, right?  It could be anything-how many dusty pennies are rolling around in your car, the oven temp you need to set to make those yummy and not-really-helping-the-diet chocolate chip cookies you bought in that sugar low you were conveniently having at the supermarket, the amount of time in seconds it took to yell at your husband for leaving his dirty socks YET AGAIN on the floor in the living room.  Just three little numbers.

Not for us.

It's our donor's number.  Our match.  The person we've been waiting for.  And she's everything that we could have hoped for in a match.  No, she doesn't look exactly like me (and who will, really) but she looks like she could be related to me, and she's a proven donor.  When I got the call to come in and look at the pictures (we get to see pictures if the donor allows) that she sent in I felt an indescribable calm, like I knew that this was the person and that this would all work out.  And it was definitely worth the wait.

Ask, and you shall receive.

We're on our way, bitches!  BOO-YA!

We are talking about donor eggs. Can you chat with me offline about the process? sjet9806@gmail.com. My name is Steph.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you guys. We went with my cousin (who kept offering) for donor eggs and I'm glad we did. The Boy will be six next month. Will your donor allow any contact, if you have any health related questions, in the future? Good luck and keep us posted!! :)

Thanks everyone-we're both scared shitless and very excited-Hell, I'll tattoo this number on my asscheek if this works!

@Anna-I didn't ask about contact, but our clinic is pretty good about keeping a channel open in case of any health issues that could come up (at least, that's what they said at our orientation). I keep thinking of your journey throughout all of this.

@Sometimes-I'll definitely email you tomorrow about the process-it's much easier than even I thought it would be.

Onward and upward, friends! ;)

I cannot WAIT to read more of this. I mean, you just know so much about this. So much of it Ive never even thought of. You sure did put a new twist on something that Ive heard so much about. I dont believe Ive actually read anything that does this subject as good justice as you just did
