Today, I got to meet a family that used the same sperm donor as us for one of their children. We had a really nice day. We went out to lunch and then over to the Science Museum.
At one point, we were talking about Jen’s pregnancy. I said I didn’t think we would have any more. She gave me a look that let me know that we were definitely having more children. Imagine my surprise.
Maybe it’s for the best. We do have a lot of stuff on ice. I have nine frozen eggs, Jen has 3 frozen embryos and we have 5 vials of the hottest sperm at the bank. It’s all very high tech. We have grainy pictures of everything. This is because for some reason, the sperm banks think we want pictures of our genetic material.
When I was 25 I was friends with a lesbian in her thirties who had a kid on her own. She had a hard time getting pregnant in her thirties and she was always on my case to start young. She ended up getting pregnant and had more vials of sperm than she needed. She told me I could have them. She said they were refrigerated.
I swear to you, I thought she meant I could open up her refrigerator and take them home.
