A Taste of IVF Over 40

I Wonder What the Donor is Thinking?

Posted on: Tuesday, February 5, 2008

I’m wondering about my sperm donor.  He must have been advised by now that we have selected him.  He also gets to read our profiles (I think).  I remember filling out a sheet that asked us what message we would like to give to our donor.  I hope he has a warm feeling inside and that he has a sense of how grateful we are.

Uggh.  The headaches are now just continual and paracetemol does nothing anymore.  My head hurts, my eyes hurt, my teeth, neck and shoulders hurt.  Apparently it’s the nasal spray but I’ll have to confirm.

I am so tense I could almost KILL for half a bottle of good red wine and a lovely dinner!  Alas, but not for some time.  I’ll either be drinking a full bottle in about three weeks (to commiserate if all does not go well), or I’ll be having something at sometime in about a year.  Let’s hope it is definitely the latter!  I’m just kidding about the full bottle of wine.  … no I’m not.

I seem to be losing my appetite.  I have to push myself to eat.  I’ve never been a big eater but I could easily go for a day and not miss food if I allowed myself to.  I’m not nauseous.  Nothing seems to attract me enough to eat it right now.

However!!!  I am still so excited about my good scan today with my healthy follicles!!  Let me go and make myself a nice cup of decaf tea to celebrate!
