Donor stuff

M and I have decided to change donors again. This will be our 3rd.

We got pregnant the first 2 times with donor #1 and after the 2nd loss decided to switch. His goods may not have had anything to do with the losses but we just couldn't take that chance. He was CMV positive. The doc said that didn't matter but I can't help but think it might have.

We used donor #2 the last 2 times and got negatives. I guess we're a "2 strikes and you're out" kinda couple. :o) (He is CMV negative)

Our new donor, #3, is also CMV negative. His baby pic shows the same blond hair and blue eyes as M's. I know that doesn't mean our child will FOR SURE have blond hair and blue eyes but since we get the opportunity to pick....we're picking!

The consent form for #3 is in the mail. So as soon as they receive it, we'll be ordering the next round of swimmers. I guess we'll go with 2 vials again this time and have them shipped. (no more truck troubles for me!!)

Oh and for those of you "in the market" for swimmers....Fairf*x Cryob*nk has free baby pics and silhouettes on ALL donors this month!

Congrats on picking the new donor!

Hey Ladies,

All our best wishes this time around!! We like a couple of donors from there as well but we are still not hooked on a particular one. We are looking at blond/blue too b/c of Dawn. We feel the same way, Doesn't guarantee anything but may as well pick since we have the chance to. Hope all goes well.

xoxo
Michelle & Dawn

We switch donors a lot as well. Can't hurt--hopefully number 3 for the donor is your lucky number.

I hope this time it works. I didn't realize you could see baby pictures of donors. That's a great idea. However, many cute babies grow up to be-- how shall I put it? --less than cute.

If both parents have blue eyes then the child will have blue or green eyes.

End of story.

Not possible to have brown.
