So, Latte got really worried that the incompetent lab tech from the hospital may have been malicious, so we decided to let that sample go (since the hospital reimbursed us for it anyway) and order a new sample.
Ginger Jesus is out of the game until May.
So, we went back to the cryobank’s website. We found a couple we liked. We purchased a couple expanded profiles. We also saw a few guys with potential genetic issues (male-lineage alcoholism, cancer that looked like it might run in the family as it was present in two generations, etc).
The first guy we liked, Latte said “He’s either an awesome dude or a serial killer”, so we read his profile, then we got to his handwriting analysis, and we decided, he’s SerialKiller. His favorite thing to do is take things apart, see how they work, and put them back together. This wouldn’t be worrisome except that his subject of choice is “Biology”.
So, Latte narrowed it down between two. The expanded profiles made the choice easier. Also, I’m never going to buy sperm without it again. In the general profile, the guy’s grandmother is listed as “Healthy, Died in her 40s” then the expanded profile explains that it wasn’t a car accident (a very common way for a healthy person to meet an untimely death) no she died of Lung Cancer, with no notation of her having been a smoker.
So our new guy is Mama’sBoy (he loves and has a lot of respect for his mom) or maybe TaxForm (just a name based on his donor number). We kind of like it that he has his own child already. Because of how young most donors are, I sometimes worry if they fully appreciate what they’re doing.
Anyway, that’s what’s new.
Fertility Friend can’t confirm ovulation this month, and I kind of don’t care. My temps were all over the place because of travel. I’ve started spotting, which is in line with normal if I just got off the OPK result, so it’s going to be all good and I’ll go in for my first TTC-related ultrasound probably early next week.
Any advice for my first cycle with ultrasounds and clomid?
