Our donor passed all of her tests. She doesn’t have the official doctors stamp of approval yet since the blood work came back an hour ago, but the nurses say it looks fine. Also, she started her period this morning and starts birth control pills tomorrow.

Assuming all goes well she’ll start stimming on Nov. 8, her retrieval will be Nov. 18 and the transfer will be Nov. 24 (give or take a few days on any of those dates). Is there an emoticon for the shock/fear/excitement/disbelief I’m feeling right now, because 0_o doesn’t cut it! After all, it’s been a long, difficult road to get to this point – could we finally be having some luck? Could this actually work?
