The baby batter catalogue

Last night, Nutella and I did some online donor searching. Finding donors that share my physical characteristics is a fairly quick process, and surprisingly, most of the guys we found that have said characteristics sound like winners. Most of the ones that we turned down seemed too tall or big which isn’t a good thing considering that Nutella and I are both small, short people. It’s interesting to note how different the prices are for baby batter…some places charge as much as $600 and some as little as $200. Why in the world would we pay for a $600 vial when we’re perfectly happy with the $200 vial? Happily, this knowledge made us realize we have enough money for many more tries than we originally thought we could afford, though hopefully it won’t take long (although that’s what everyone wishes).

Searching for donors was fun though…and in a strange way, like picking out the perfect car or a puppy.

  1. I kept forgetting and/or not being able to find a good time or way to mention this, but, uh, I guess this is as good a place as any, considering the subject matter!

    I did in fact ask Steve how he would feel about the idea of donating, and he said that he didn’t think he would ever be able to get over the idea that it was his child. (And, to be honest, I’m not entirely sure I could, either). We both wish you all the best though, and I’m adding you to my google reader right away so I can read along. I’m glad to hear that you’ve found some donors that match what you’re looking for! You two are going to make fantastic parents.

    Ah thanks, no biggie 🙂 After thinking things through a bit more, we decided it wouldn’t be the best course of action for us to use a known donor. We were definitely in the habit of pointing to every good-looking redhead and saying “Oh! He’d be great!’ lol, but “in theory” is always easier than “in practice” and the legality and other issues you mentioned are rough waters to tread 🙂

    Anyway, thank you! We’re glad you’ll be reading 🙂
