Contract Signed!

Today was contract day. We are officially in the Shared Risk Program and ready to get started with our next cycle. We have a donor picked out (she was our first choice during our last donor cycle; however, she had not yet completed an IVF donor cycle at that point). I am extremely risk adverse, so I didn't want to go with someone who had not yet been through the paces. Here are her latest stats during her 1st cycle:

15 eggs retrieved
13 mature
10 fertilized
8 blasts

I feel myself becoming very hopeful. I want to maintain a bit of reasonableness with our history but I am hoping that this will be it. Starting our cycle is still a few weeks out, but I am anxious to get started.

Ooh, I like those numbers. They are almost identical to the numbers our future donor had with her last cycle, which resulted in a prenancy. This is very exciting!

Wow things are progressing pretty quickly for you and I'm so excited for you. I'm so jealous you get to start again so soon. I still have to wait until August and it seems so far away at times. Your donor sounds like a great choice..! Good luck to you. I'll be thinking of you.

Oh boy do I know how you feel about being anxious to get started! I'm in the same boat myself so I know how you are feeling! Your donor sounds promising, do you know if her last donor cycle if the person who got her eggs got pregnant? I sure hope this is it for you!! When will you be cycling? I start in a few weeks too!
