First appointment

So I had my first appointment this morning. The ultrasound showed 21 eggs in the right ovary and 19 in the left ovary. Apparently this is alot of eggs and they don't think they are going to have to give me as high of a dose of hormones to stimulate my ovaries (YAY!!) but the down side is that since I have so many eggs in there already my ovaries are going to be so heavy towards the end of all this that I will have to be on bedrest for at least a weeks with no strenuious activity. It I pull, push, lift or any other jarring motion to my body my ovaries could twist and I would have to have surgery STAT to remove my ovaries. Other than that we are waiting on my blood work to come back to schedule my next appointment. Should be the end of next week or the first of the following week. And now to add onto all this, I have a cyst in my neck, it has always been there, but for the last few months it has been getting bigger and inflammed. So on Ovtober 4th I will be going in to have it removed. Fun stuff!!

Aunt Flow finally decided to join the party

I finally started my period!! I have been PMS'ing to a good 3 weeks, so needless to say I have been miserable and for the first time in my life I was begging for her to come. I have an appointment Friday to have an ovarian assessment and blood work. I am not excited about having to have a transvaginal ultrasound while mensturating but it is for a good cause so I will put on my big girl panties and suck it up. I will update again Friday after my appointment.

The waiting game

So of course since this month is the month we get everything started my period is not going to show on time. LOL!! I am waiting to start and my sister is asking me every other day if I have started yet and when I reply "no" she asks when I expect to and remind me I was suppost to have started already. So at this point we are waiting...... and waiting....... and waiting.

The gift of a child.

For the last year my sister has been toying with the idea of having a child. She was diagnosed with SEVERE endometriosis in early 2010. Since then, having a baby has been weighing heavly on her mind, since she was faced with the fact that it may never happen for her. After 3 surgeries resulting in the removal of both her fallopian tubes, an ovary and other various parts and pieces she is now unable to have a child on her own. At her doctors appointment yesterday it was confirmed she would need an egg donor. The first person to come to mind was me. Obviously my eggs are healthy and viable (I have 2 kids) and she was not thrilled to have to use an annonomous donor. So starting today I will be documenting my story as an egg donor.
