I just sent an email to the west coast people asking if they think they would move forward with us. I feel like I am in limbo and I can't stand it. I hope I wasn't too pushy. We hadn't heard from them in a while and I'm PMSy and not in a good place today and I felt like I had to do something.

We have a meeting with a lawyer next week and a social worker regarding using donor gametes and my cycle is going to come to an end and I want to know if we might be committed to this.

If they don't want to donate to us that's fine, but I just want to KNOW.

So, I sent the email. I had T read it and he thought it was well written and not too pushy but asking to move forward. And as he said, if this email makes them not want to donate to us then they probably weren't the right match to begin with.

I just want to *do* something.

I'm glad you emailed them. It's best for everyone if they make a decision. Sorry the other couple didn't work out -- our clinic won't let us donate our extra embryos to either another couple or to research due to them being made with donor gametes; it's hard to have those restrictions when you want to do something productive with what you've created, and I'm sure they are disappointed about it, but that doesn't help you.

Fingers crossed for the west coast option.
