"She's like a traffic cop with those donors!"

So said the very nice bubbly attorney about the very nice bubbly ( and thankfully very focused ) egg donor coordinator nurse this morning. I was consulting her about the agreement that we are signing with the egg donor. Apparently she has already been to see her lawyer - so that is fantastic! S and I had to sign multiple copies as "intended mother A" and "intended mother B" so now I have those phrases running around in my obsessive little head. The donor and donees get copies without legal names on, but the copies with legal names are held by the lawyers. Something like that. The egg donor is forever known to us as Intended donor Z.
The clinic finally got the "overnighted" package from the egg donor agency this morning and the nice bubbly nurse emailed me to let me know. She is going to call the donor and get things moving ASAP! Thank god I have faith in her. If anyone can get things moving it's her. She has the reputation of being like a traffic cop, which in this instance is a recommendation in my eyes! I think that must mean she gets the job done, she's no nonsense and she directs multiple streams of traffic, right? That would be me and my "cycle" and the donor and her "cycle".
So - it's day three, I had my u/s and b/w in record time this morning and I am hoping and praying that this is the last delay. I start BCPs tonight. The "cyst" has shrunk to 19 mm and will probably disappear with the BCPS. Keep things crossed for me. If we are lucky we might get a tentative schedule next week! And if you see a traffic cop, please thank her!

Whew! Glad to hear things are moving along again.
Word of assvice re the BCP's: try to take them at the exact time every night. Otherwise...spotting.
Hope things are smooth sailing from here on out!

I need to catch up on past posts, but at the moment, everything sounds like it's moving right along, Mother A. :) Hooray for traffic cops...we need more of them in this business, eh? Good luck and here's hoping you get to transfer before long!

a traffic cop is exactly what you need - someone who is good with coordinating many things! I am really glad to hear there was progress and I too am crossing everything for you.

Well finally! You need a traffic cop kind of nurse to get this cycle organized and moving along. So glad things are beginning to fall into place. :)
