I just got word from St. Mungo's that our donor's baseline appointment today went well, and she has been cleared to start her stims tomorrow! She had ~40 follicles, low progesterone and estrogen, and no cysts.
It feels weird to be sending good vibes and positive thoughts to someone else's ovaries, but that's what I'll be doing over the next several days. She will be seen for her next monitoring appointment next Wednesday and then again next Friday. I have my next monitoring appointment next Tuesday, so next week will be a busy one in terms of communication between St. Mungo's and me. :-)
It is still sometimes hard for me to believe that we are really doing this, but hearing about this makes it seem much more real. (So did paying St. Mungo's today, ugh.) It's not like me to put my trust in another person for something this important, particularly a stranger. . . . but I trust that our donor is going to follow her instructions to the letter and do all she can to provide us with some beautiful eggs in less than two weeks. Really, what other choice do I have?
My nurse mentioned again today how much she likes working with our donor and how great she is. I love hearing that!
