We got the great news this morning that everything is set for a December transfer.
The egg donor's screening tests for infectious diseases and genetic abnormalities came back OK today!
We got contracts sorted out last week. My husband and I set up an appointment for last Friday at noon to go in and sign the papers. Just because no stage of this journey can be without drama, I was shocked to find out that my husband was a no show! I called his phone several times with no answer. Turns out he was a wee bit tired after working three 12 hour night shifts in a row, and had slept through his alarm. He called me in a panic at around 1:00. Luckily my attorney's office was able to squeeze him in later in the afternoon and everyone signed by the end of last week.
Just as a side note, both my agency and my attorney told me they had worked with my IPs' attorney in the past and she had "never been like this before." My attorney confirmed that our negotiations were much more complicated than most, and that it never should have taken over 3 months to get our contract done. Apparently the other attorney was saving up all her ball-dropping energy for our contract. Does anyone else get the impression that our journey is cursed, or is it just me?
Oh well, I'm going to assume that all of our bad luck has been used up and the rest of this process will go smoothly!
