ICLW - April - The Intro Post

Hello, internets! I'm excited to kick off another edition of International Comment Leaving Week! Welcome everybody!

For those who are new to the crazy, my husband (John Dear, aka JD) and I have been TTC for almost 3 years. With a diagnosis of very low motility and some genetic considerations, we've decided to go forward using donor sperm.

Last week, we were cleared by the RE and LCSW, all that was left was to pick the donor. We picked him!! I'll be doing a separate post this week on our process of choosing a donor (it did not involve the flipping of coins nor did it come down to a round robin tournament of rock, paper, scissors), so if you're interested, check back later this week.

SO, I guess all we're waiting for is CD1 and then we're actually going to have a shot at getting pregnant! I'm bouncing up and down with excitement! Yay!

I'm also a huge Washington Capitals hockey fan, so I must give a shout out to my boys in red (well, white when they're away). Go CAPS!! While I have to settle for having naughty meditative visions of Alex Ovechkin during my yoga nidra class, my sister saw him for real this weekend while she was out and about. So cool!

I'm interested in the Rock Paper Scissors game. I tell my husband that's how I picked him! No, not really, but I'm hopeful that you get your happily ever after soon!

Hi! Congrats on picking a donor! That's great! If you don't mind I might follow along. My husband and I may need an egg donor a little ways down this path, so I'm a little curious.

Oh, Jendeis! I am beyond thrilled for you that you are ready to start trying with your brand new donor! I can't wait to hear how you picked him - it was such an interesting process for us. I hope your upcoming CD1 is not followed by another CD1 for about a year or so!

Mazel tov on the donor! My husband and I used to live in College Park, MD, so we know the Caps well :) We were Nats fans while we lived down there (now in Boston, so Red Sox are a must) and we are STILL die hard 'skins fans. I miss the Clinton Portis Eastern Motors commercials SO much ;)

Just wanted to drop a line to say hello and good luck. Happy ICLW!
