Don't Count Your Eggs

Hi Caitlin. It's a really hard decision whether to donate eggs, and it's a super personal one. My sister struggled with it for sure. Each person has their own process of how they make important decisions. Some people go with their gut or first instinct, others do extensive research, others may look to someone or something else to help them decide. For my sister, being a doctor, she did extensive research and talked to several donors she knew or was acquainted with. The more info she got the harder it became to make a decision. I knew I had to give her space and time and after really thinking about it for a few weeks I think she kind of went with her gut. Making the decision can be hard, but once she made it she never wavered, never doubted, never resented me--she was all in. It's important to make your own decision and to feel comfortable with it. I wish you the best of luck!


My sister C told my sister L she would be her donor. It was something I was not comfortable doing. Unfortunately C is high risk so L would like me to do it. It is still new but I am struggling with this. How did your sister come to terms with being a donor and feel comfortable with the risk associated with it?

Don't Count Your Eggs

Ugh. The wait is so awful. I just got my first call and the news was...I don't even know. Iffy? I can't fathom how I'm going to get through the day to hear how the few fertilized are dividing. Double Ugh.


That is great news! Keep thinking positive thoughts! My retrieval was on a Friday and the lab doesn't call to give updates on weekends so I had to wait until Monday. A million thoughts ran through my head during the waiting. I am gonna try to be more positive this time! I cannot wait to hear tomorrow's news and the next and next day!
