Lately it feels like it’s just a waiting game.
-Waiting for my period so I can have my blood work done.
-Waiting for my house to be done.
-Waiting to start trying for a baby.
-Waiting to pick a donor.
-Waiting for a certain guy to text me…*eyeroll*
I’m waiting to get my blood work done and the info back before I sign up with the Fairfax sperm bank. I feel they are the right choice for me. I will either use Can-Am, Repromed or Outreach to get the sample to my clinic. On the 28th or 29th I will go get my blood taken for one of the labs the clinic needs. I’ll get all 3 forms done that day. Then they will get back to me on which donors to avoid. I wanted to try in January but my period lands right on Christmas and my 10 day ultrasound would land on New Years.
Not 100% positive what I am going to do, my cousin (who knows what I am doing) wants me to do a “pre baby moon” with her and her sister. She said Nashville but with the dollar sucking so bad we can’t do it. So I suggested Jamaica or Mexico. Of coarse All-Inclusive but keep it at $1000.00 for the week and we’d be able to do it. I told her it would have to be between Jan 4 – Jan 20 since my period starts the 22nd and that would be the cycle I try. We will see if her sister will come with, if not then I am going to see what my doctor says about trying in January. She wants a “pre baby moon” so I can drink, she knows i’m not much of a dinker to begin with but it would still be fun to get away with the.
I would like to do an actual baby moon when I am pregnant. Just take a weekend either by myself or with a friend and stay in the city, watch movies, pig out, shop a little.
The Fairfax Bank is awesome, I love their online setup and once I know which donors to avoid I’ll sign up for their full access, meaning I see lifetime photos and more. It’s $190 for 60 days which I don’t find to bad as they have so many donors to sift threw. I’m anxious to start that process. I think my plan will to pick a handful of options, then hold a pick my donor party. We will see when the time comes as I might just want to choose all on my own.
If it all works out as planned and I conceive in February if I have the money saved up I want to go to Minneapolis in May with a bunch of my cousins for 4 Blue Jays games. That will be decided in December as that’s when tickets go on sale. If not that’s fine, also means more money to save.
As for the guy I’m waiting to text, it’s dumb and if he doesn’t I’m not going to worry about it. It just makes everything so much more clear and set for me.
My house will be taped, mudded and painted by next week, they are putting the basement walls up tomorrow and getting the plumbing and electrician to finish up. My flooring and all my finishes will be picked up tomorrow, I’m on the last leg of this house journey basically! I should be in at the end of October. I’ve got some great decor that I can’t wait to set up. P.S. I’m so in love with the nursery room, has nice big windows. On the change table/dresser wall the wall goes right up to the peaked ceiling it makes the room seem so much bigger. I cannot even wait till I’m pregnant and can start decorating the baby room. I already of coarse have items for it, I’ve already for the theme I’ll use. I seriously have so much planned it’s ridiculous, and I know it’s probably bad luck to buy this stuff before anything has happened, or it’s bad luck to be so excited but I just can’t help it!
