The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

Joining a Gym – Choosing our Baby Daddy – Among Other Things August 18, 2010

          I joined a gym yesterday.  Need to be in a little better shape than I am now in order to go through with this.  Won’t hurt to stay active during the pregnancy either.  I got a great deal because I haggle (as a side note, don’t ever pay full price for ANYTHING – I ALWAYS get a discount πŸ™‚ ).
     

          I also requested the donor catalog for our specimen.  I think we’ve decided on Midwest Sperm Bank because they are much less expensive than most other places for a vial as well as shipping.  I’m not looking to choose based on price alone, but I honestly don’t need all the other things that the more expensive banks offer (video, willing to meet the child, etc).  The less it costs, the more times I can try – even though I’m certain it will happen the first time :).  When the difference is $200-$500/month, who could choose without looking at the cost?

          I have a feeling we are going with Donor 126.  Here are his stats:
Donor #———————————————126 
Race————————————————-C
Ethnic Origin Mother—————————-Hispanic/Argentinian
Ethnic Origin Father—————————–Hispanic/Argentinian
Religion———————————————Christian/Catholic
Skin Tone ——————————————Med-Dark
Hair Color——————————————Dark Brown
Hair Texture—————————————Curly 
Eye Color——————————————Blue 
Weight———————————————-215 
Height———————————————–6’0” 
Blood Type—————————————-A + 
Bone Size——————————————Large 
Education Years Completed—————–16 
Occupation —————————————Criminal Justice Invest.
Hobbies——————————————–Alpine Skiing, Guitar, Music

          I’ve also done some searching on the Donor Sibling Registry and found that he has quite a few little ones out there (9 that are registered) – so hopefully he has some good little swimmers!

 OK – in the middle of writing this, I get an email saying that 126 is no longer available…..UGH.  The next option that is available is 009…. 

Donor #———————————————009
Race————————————————-Other/ C/ Black
Ethnic Origin Mother—————————-British/German
Ethnic Origin Father—————————–African American/Indian
Religion———————————————Christian/Baptist
Skin Tone ——————————————Med
Hair Color——————————————Black
Hair Texture—————————————Medium/Wavy
Eye Color——————————————Brown

Height———————————————–6’1” 
Blood Type—————————————-B + 
Bone Size——————————————Large 
Education Years Completed—————–16 
Occupation —————————————Student/Coach (Education/English)
Hobbies——————————————–Sports, Basketball, Soccer

He’s got 8 little ones on Donor Sibling Registry – hm…

Back to attempting to actually work – This is really beginning to consume me!

      I have a little girl from donor 126. She doesn’t understand the donor daddy thing yet because she’s only 7.
