There is always more than one factor influencing a situation,
and on average alot.
One of the reasons I signed up as an egg donor was because I
wanted to give in one more way. I am on
the blood donor list, the organ donor list and the bone marrow donor list. The science side of it also interests me alot.
There are quite a few organisations with which to join up. And since it’s a while back I can’t remember
why I chose baby2mom. But Jenny is a
very patient, very caring, interested and friendly person. I had one or two moments almost going to
confusion, but everyone involved in the process answered me quickly, and
sometimes again and again on the same question. (Thank you)
The initial application online is actually quite tedious, I
mean its pages and pages of all aspects of your live. And then you have to go and dig up photos of
yourself as a kid.
Once that’s done wait and see. I got my first call at on the way to the
airport visiting a friend for a big birthday. The general course of action was
laid out and it all began.
The initial doctor’s appointment, tests and psychological
evaluation was all good. The medication
part and syncing up with the receiver is a bit tricky though, but we got it
sorted. (Again, Jenny was a great
problem solver by creating a chat group between her, me and the medical staff.)
In keeping with making the donor as attended to as possible
Jenny kept in contact throughout, then asked my physical location where I could
be reached. At first I was dumb struck
for a reason why, but it was a surprise and I got this to brighten my day.
I guess the most difficult part is the self administered
hormone injections. I must say even
though I’m used to handling needles, even I stuck the needle in my finger once
by mistake. There is only one injection
left before the final stretch.
This has been a journey.
