    Donor went in today. Estrogen was low, AFC -16. She got the ok to start stims tonight. I have to do 2 estrogen patches, continue 10 units Lupron and dh and I start antibiotics tonight. Woohoo!!! I'm so relieved to get to this point. I know that she will be going for u/s and b/w on Sun and they will call me in the beginning of the week to give me my instructions. I just hope that her cycle goes smoothly. Hopefully if all goes well the ER and ET will be end of April beginning of May. Wish me luck girls. I need it!!!

    Thanks again for all of your support! It keeps me going!!!
