We love new toys!

We finally get to play with our fertility monitor now--S. got AF yesterday, just when she thought she'd never get it. So now we're back to temping every morning at 5:20, when I have to get up for my new job anyway, and we get to press the button on the fertility monitor. In six days we get to stick pee sticks in it. Yippee!!

My friend brought up a good point when I was talking to him the other night--are we still using the same donor? Is that donor still available? Of course I always thought there was going to be a neverending supply of donor #1 (who I think we'll go back to), but what if there was a sudden rush on him and the bank is out? Who will we turn to? I guess we should probably check the website to confirm that he's still there--otherwise, we'll be doing some quick decision-making!

sounds like fun! we were anxious about the same thing, especially b/c our donor had some unique characteristics that were important to us in order to mirror Mel's traits and we only found 1 guy in both banks our clinic recommended. needless to say, he 'retired' and there were 7 vials left, so we bought them all. wound up using 5 so we've got 2 left for the next time...

hopefully you guys aren't as picky ; )

Ah, just close your eyes and point. And don't use Fairfax. That's my only advice.
Enjoy the monitor!

interesting, we used fairfax and couldn't have been happier... it was only one of two facilities that our clinic would work with and their world renown...
