I've been busy with work, school, and buying a condo these last two weeks but I wanted to report that I just got the monitoring orders and legal agreement for my next cycle, my fourth. The IP's are based in Asia and the retrieval will take place at a clinic at the West Coast. The monitoring will be done in my hometown though, so I only travel for the retrieval.
I can't believe this is going to be my third cycle this year. I planned to do one in 2009 but my agency eagerly kept lining up new ones with very little time between the cycles until I told them I didn't feel confortable committing to cycles that would take place more than 8 months down the road. I would hate to disappoint an IP couple if I had to cancel an agreement because of a new job or other life changes, and I also can't predict whether my body would still want to do this after so many times. My general policy is not to sign the legal agreement for a new cycle until the previous cycle is successfully completed. So no more cycles lined up after this one, for the moment being.
However, I am very excited about my next cycle and will be posting about it here.
