Starting Our Family

The reality of infertility, IVF and donor eggs

No Turning Back Now (gulp)

on June 21, 2013


Well folks- the check is in the mail and there is no turning back now.   We sent the big chunk payment for our donor cycle.  I am incredibly excited yet horribly terrified. 

I probably should have went to some remote bank to get the bank check.  The one I used is right next to my office.  The teller was new and didn’t know how to do a bank check.  He told me to write it out to the recipient.  When his manager came to review it she said (loud), “no, no, no- she writes the check to us for $12,000 and then we write the check to IVF New Jersey.”  Wow- really?  You need to announce that to the whole bank?  I left with a pocket full of pens and lollipops.

    i had completely forgotten. But, I had a similar experience when i sent the check to the donor agency. “egg donor” is in their name. So, I went to an out of way bank where I have no accounts for the hopes of remaining anonymous. But, after bringing multiple people to consult, they decided, they couldn’t help me because I had never had an account with them. They couldn’t help me even when I offered to pay more. Since when does a bank turn down money?

      I had to pay $5 for the bank check even though I’m a customer. I didn’t think they would announce what the check was for. Good thing it wasn’t a sponsorship for the United Syphilis Support Campaign lol.
