Creme de la Creme
Wow! Wow! Wow! Welcome to you lovely ladies who have wandered over from the Creme de la Creme and thank you for your awesome comments. I am going to set aside a good chunk of tomorrow evening to read through more of the great posts that Melissa has compiled here. Have I mentioned that I love Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters? D*mn. What a great site.
If you liked hearing about Fertile Hope, please let me share some other links with you:
The Surviving and Moving Forward (SAMFund) offers grants and scholarships to young adult survivors. I have the SAMFund to thank for $2500 that will go towards our donor egg IVF (which, by the way, is just around the corner). The application process is a little long and detailed (be prepared to dig up your old tax returns) but worth it.
The International Council on Infertility Information Dissemination, Inc (INCID) offers scholarships to those considering IVF but in financial need. I haven't applied for this so I am not sure how extensive this application is, but hey, might as well try, right?
In just a day, I'll be heading to my clinic for an ultrasound and some blood work. If all goes well, retrieval and transfer are just a week away. When I reminded hubby that his next trip to the spankatorium was just days away, he started to panic just a little. Oh how different things are now that he'll be the one that has to do the shooting (as it were).
Things are starting to feel a little real.
