I've had way too much pain for this to be normal. I thought about asking the clinic for an ultrasound next week after I start LH bloodwork on CD10, Sunday. I thought it might be better to see what was going on in there first before calling with a crazy request on CD8. So I peed on an OPK. This is what I got.

The donor issue isn't resolved yet. My back up donor's in stock vials sold out but his new ones are stick in a regulatory snafu which the company expects to be resolved in 6-8 weeks. Yeesh! The rep told me that I should think about a back up to my back up. What is wrong with this picture? I'm on the waiting list for my back up donor as of now. *sigh* So, I might be able to get my back up donor and I might not. I've asked to be e-mailed asap when the moratorium is lifted so I can get vials of this donor.
And to assist me with that I'm changing my line of credit from unsecured (totally unused because it has a 14.7% interest rate!) to secured (prime + 1% = ~4% right now). I earn ridiculous overtime at work just by doing one business trip a month. But I don't have a ton of cash sitting in savings at the moment to pay for sperm. I blew what I had on 5 vials of my 1st donor. Now I have confidence that I can put this purchase on my MC (hello Ai.r Mi.les), roll it over into my line of credit at a very favourable interest rate and pay it off with my crazy overtime payments. I just didn't tell the bank it was for sperm. Instead I told my rep that it was for home reno stuff, which is actually partially correct since I do need to get my central vac, eavestroughs, fencing, etc. completed this year and next. It wasn't totally untrue ... I just left out the sperm part. ;-)
I'd prefer it if I didn't need to consider a back up donor at all but I'm not feeling it this month, certainly not like last cycle. Time will tell.
