Our journey has taken another direction and we have finally moved on to pursuing an Egg Donor cycle. My sister had her first appointment yesterday and it have is such a weird feeling. I am now a bystander in my own quest to conceive. My sister is the one in the drivers seat and that is hard for me. I feel like I have my face pressed against the window and I am just looking in on the process. She has to go to the clinic for counselling with her husband, they have to have blood tests done, and then they will attend an IVF seminar. It feels so strange and it isn't what I expected. I had no idea my brother in law would have to be so involved and I feel a bit uncomfortable about it. He is nice enough and wants us to get pregnant but he is super busy and I hate asking him to have to make time in his schedule for all of this.
While my sister is busy doing testing my job is to find a lawyer to get a contract drawn up. Then we all have to go in and sign it together (again with my brother-in-law). It just occured to me while writing this this post that I am the third wheel in this Third Party Contract. My husband will be the biological father and my sister will be the egg donor. I am just the recipeint! I know that isn't all I will be but on paper it sounds so insignificant. By the way does anyone have a third party egg donor contract because that would save us some money!!!
