Grade A eggs

I need a few good eggs. I am talking high quality specimens from a young baby-maker. Preferably, I would like about 10 eggs much like the one pictured to the left. This is just a visual reminder I found online, not an egg from my own ovaries. If it were my egg, it would be grainy and poor quality. But that is all okay now because J and I finally get an actual appointment with the egg lady “Amy” and the calendar lady”Jennifer” !! I am taking this step as a nice milestone since the clinic only let us have brief, entry level talks with Amy before (though expensive).
One week from tomorrow, J and I get to go to the big business clinic, talk cycle dates and look at donor profiles. If one suits us, then we get things rolling. Honestly ‘healthy’ is our only criteria at this point so I am thinking that we will pick out someone. J is just certain that all the clinic will have available is red-headed donors. She is a natural red and was teased unmercifully as a child. I, on the other hand, would LOVE a little red-headed baby…. or brunette, or blond, or whatever. I might burst from excitement. I am also sure that my fertile young friends will now be glad that I have some eggs on the way (potentially) so I can stop harassing them and offering money for their eggs. This is not even a joke.
And a little update: J called our pal the financial lady at the BB fertility clinic. Remember my earlier posted fears that we would get on the list then the super-low introductory price of donor eggs would end? Well that happened: the price has jumped to 3x the price we were quoted, as the pilot program has shown excellent success. The good news? We are the last couple on the list still being given the bargain basement pricing! That goodness, because after 3 IVF’s our ability to creatively finance baby-making is rapidly nearing a close. Dare I say that something in the reproductive area seems to be working inour favor?

    Hey, this is awesome news! Time to pick the donor! Well, as a natural redhead myself, I completely understand Js experience about being teased as a kid. But red hair is now the #1 hair color women want their hair dyed. We are now the most desirable ones! Tell J she is like an exotic fish. Someone once described redheads that way and it made me feel better. Anyway, I got off on a tangent, but I wish you guys great luck in choosing your donor. Have a fun appointment! And super fantastic about getting the low low price!

    oh my gawd – I am so excited! Have been off internet for a few days and catching up on all the action! I am with you – go for all healthy eggs, and redheads get the big thumbs up. I agree with PP – very desirable and exotic hair color! Yippee! Can't wait to hear how it goes:)
