Monday is the "sit down" I scheduled back with Dr. T back on the day I posted my rant Doctor Who?
Of course, as I've mentioned in past blog posts, I have calmed down since then and my attitude is much better AND Dr. T was there to perform my IUI#3 last cycle.
Dr. T has not been happy with my donor counts since IUI#1 and recommended I find a new cryobank and donor Swimmers. This morning I downloaded all of the forms necessary to order Swimmers. I also took my previously narrowed down list of 12 to 6 and then to 2 (and "only" spending $190 on the "extras" to narrow it down). I'm happy with either of the final two. I hope they have good numbers... how do you know until they crack the vial just before the IUI?!?
Funny, picking the Swimmers the second time around was much easier. I guess I learned from my first experience. What's most important to me, after narrowing down by high level physical features (i.e. ethnicity), is medical history. One of my favorite bloggers going through her second donor search did a blog on How to Choose a Sperm Donor just this week.
Next I need to write out my questions for my doctor... Other than questions about 1) IUI timing, amount & progesterone levels, and 2) when do we need to get more aggressive/switch things up? Anyone have input to other questions I should be asking???
