Waiting on Some Paperwork

So the other night Jess and I got into a little bit of a heated discussion. He wanted to see our paperwork from the doctor. I didn't understand why, but found the paperwork. (That's a funny side story---He said he searched and searched and searched the filing cabinet. Each time he called me to ask me where it was I directed him to where it was. He couldn't find it. Low and behold, I came home, marched up to the computer room and had it in my hands in about 2 minutes! MEN!)

Anywho... I got the paperwork, he looked at it and said he wanted to see the paperwork on donor sperm. What? REWIND? What the hell did that boy just say? Yep, he said he wanted to see paperwork on donor sperm. You know, the procedure we had decided wasn't in our cards. I was so hurt that he was opening that door. It took me a long time and a lot of work with our counselor to close that door. In fact, when he said it I shouted (in the restaurant) "STOP OPENING DOORS I HAVE WORKED SO HARD TO CLOSE!" I would've loved to have been a nearby table, they were probably thinking, "get a grip chick!"

Well, after we talked about it, he said he wants to know all there is to know about donor sperm because with embryo adoption, there is a lot of references to donor sperm since the process leading up to it, is very similar. He said he wants to know ALL the info before we make our decision.

I was okay with this justification and reasoning. SO, I called the doctor today and she's sending us the info for donor sperm, as well as, the FET protocol so we know all that will be expected.

We are still leaning to embryo adoption. It totally seems like the best of both worlds for us. I'm hopeful this will work out for us and I'm even more hopeful the paperwork will be in the mailbox when I get home tomorrow so that we can start taking a few more steps!

God will lead you down the right road :) Embryo adoption was the answer for us for many reasons! God bless!

Oh, Michelle, I can TOTALLY imagine how hard it must be to re-open that door...even if it's just a crack. Thinking of you and praying that God continues to guide you and your husband in your decisions!
