After worrying all weekend and today that the sperm wouldn't get here on time it did. No temperature spike last night and I'm pretty sure I have or will ovulate today. Tomorrow's temperature will tell. The sperm was still cold which was surprising given how long it took to get here. The quantity was CRAZY! There was sooooooo much compared to the little vial I got with the sperm bank lol. I'm thinking that next cycle (if there is one :P) I will just have him ship one and do half right away and half 12 hours after. I will just keep the second half with a freezer pack like he did to ship it. I don't think timing could have been much better. I'm super excited and optimistic that it might actually work, if not this cycle than soon, or even just eventually :D Donor said he will work with me until I'm pregnant and for any other children as well. I only want one (and would be thrilled with just one right now!) but it's nice to know that if I change my mind both children would have the same parents. I am hoping to wait out for my period or until November 16th (12 days past ovulation - 12 dpo) since I should get my period on the 15th. That being said I would be okay with being able to wait until next Wednesday or Thursday (9 dpo and 10 dpo) lol. Hopefully with being busy at work this week will go by quick, then I have a four day weekend which will go by quick because I will be googling baby stuff and watching movies. Then just one or two days and then I would be okay with testing :D. I think a lot will depend on how I'm feeling. If I have spotting or cramping that I think might be implantation or if I have a weird symptom like super sore breasts than I think I'll test early (9 or 10 dpo) but if I have nothing I will try to wait for my period.
Anyway, let the countdown begin!
