Ease on Down the Road

15 Mar

Cast from The Wiz

Can you tell that I love The Wiz?

Well last night we purchased photos, the long donor profiles, and a video for a few donors that we were/are interested in. I do have to say, no matter how weird this sounds, we feel in love with one of th donors. A few years back we were reading an article about sperm banks, so being internet lovers we did a search and found Pacific Reproductive Services.

While browsing profiles we found a donor that we liked, well apparently we had bookmarked this page and totally forgot about it. So in the recent past when we went to bookmark this donor profile we were told that it already existed. We purchased the additional information and while the photo uploaded I felt really nervous. Β When the face popped up on our computer screen it was weird.

The donor looks like a male version of Charlie…I’m not just saying this I’m serious. It was Charlie with facial hair. We even compared photos of the two side by side to make sure we weren’t being crazy. The donor angels were looking out for us LOL. Now we also have another donor that I feel in love with as well as option 2. So we will see what happens but our hope is that our first option works out. πŸ™‚

Little Facts About the Donor:

– Of african american decent

– Likes baseball

– Has a round head like Charlie

– Has a nice smile

– Stated wonderful reasons for becoming a donor

 

Can you feel the excitement! Now to Order….Weird. LOL

    That definitely sounds like the angels are looking out for you! I’m glad this process is going smoothly and I hope it continues to πŸ™‚

      I hope so as well…but the journey will be what it will be.

    Congrats on finding a couple of options that you like! It can feel good to have that decision done. πŸ™‚
    We had bought 6 vials of our first choice donor and I didn’t get pregnant – all 6 tries were BFN.
    We decided to switch it up with a donor we were not nearly as “in love with” and it worked the first time with him. We had bought 4 vials of the second donor so S got pregnant with the same donor. And we still have 2 vials left.

      Thanks…we are going to order 2 vials as instructed by our RE and see what happens. I know that there is a chance that we won’t have luck with this donor so I don’t want to go vial crazy.

    WOO HOO How cosmic is that for the donor to resemble Charlie!!! Wishing you both loads of baby dust and BFP!! Very happy that I found your blog. Feels great reading about someone who is on that same journey πŸ™‚

    This might sound crazy, but you might want to consider this:

    Even if you love a donor, go ahead and call the sperm bank and ask to speak with a technician. Ask which donors have the highest sperm counts and best thaw rates. Even some donors who have “good” sperm counts don’t thaw well. Also, go ahead and pick some alternatives and try not to get too wrapped in one person that you pick. He might not work for you, the bank could run out of his supply, etc.

      We’ve already done that and we have two other donors that we will use if this donor doesn’t work for us.

      Hopefully he will but if not we do have other donors we like.

    Wow – this is great…so this was the same guy from a few years ago? I’m totally fascinated by how people select their donors…it’s such an odd process. Did he have adult photos or just child photos?

    Ah yes – we checked those guys out. They seem to have a fantastic ethos..no shipping to the UK though!
