They retrieved 10 eggs from me this morning. The procedure wasn’t bad. I am sore and pretty tired, but getting my wisdom teeth removed was much worse. Now I need to decide what to do. Considering my age, I was hoping to freeze 20 eggs, so I should probably go one more round. But the whole procedure is very expensive and emotionally trying. Plus, there is a logistics question. Towards the end of the process, you have to go to the center every morning for an ultrasound and a blood draw. You should see my veins, they are all banged up like a heroin addict. My classes start at 8:40 in the morning so I am not sure this will work.
Also, Jen pointed out that I don’t even know if I want to be the bio mom again. I just want the option. She is trying to get pregnant now, and she told me tonight she is interested in carrying more than once. She’s young, so that’s probably a realistic option for her. So if you do the math – that’s a lot of kids.
Yet, despite all of this, I still have a strong urge to go one more round and double my chances. I think my biological clock is ticking. Biology can just make you so irrational.
