He said yes!

I have been practically hyperventilating for the last two weeks. We asked a friend to be our known donor, and we had dinner tonight to go over his questions/concerns and our expectations. He said yes! :)

He will probably be moving in the fall to begin work on a phd program, so to accomodate his availability, we are bumping our timeline up. Looks like we will be trying starting in MAY (good hell!). Last hurdle is his medical testing, but we aren't expecting any holdbacks there. As long as that comes back clear, we are on.

omigosh, omigosh, omigosh

It's, ummm, real now.

Awesome, Courtney!!!!  YAY!!  What a RELIEF, huh?

I forgot to mention this in my email to you but I have some leftover tools of the trade (if you will) that I could send to you to help get you started!  I think I still have a couple sterile specimen cups and some opk's.

Thank you SO much everyone! We aren't telling anyone IRL, so it is so nice to have *someplace* where I can come spill the beans. :) I am so hugely excited and way nervous!

Not much news to report right now, but his dr. appt. is scheduled. I think he is almost as excited as we are. :) And we've bumped our first try date to April.

Jessie and Sarah, THANK YOU. J, I'm about to reply to your email and S., I'll pm you.


Thanks so much for the support and encouragement, everyone!
