So, it didn't take the first time, but I am okay with it because it doesn't always work out the first time. We tried again yesterday using two different donors and I just started ovulating today so we got it in there a day early. And we are meeting with our local donor again today so we can inseminate again today.
I wonder how everyone at work will react when it takes and we tell them?
If any of you live in or near Long Beach, CA...on Saturday, February 7th, we're having a HUGE yard sale. Our twins are 2 and we are selling tons of baby gear, furniture, clothing, toys, etc...in EXCELLENT condition. Let anyone in the area know if they might be expecting, or have little ones,...huge deals on very expensive, nice, quality baby gear like excersaucers, high chairs, swings, strollers, jumpers, clothing, furniture, etc...
If you're interested, please post me a message for more details. Thanks!
I recently posted a comment to phoebejen's blog post at http://www.proudparenting.com/node/2477, which prompted me to write an article for The Examiner (http://www.examiner.com/x-2616-LGBT-Parenting-Examiner~y2009m1d20-Cryoba...).
Over the past year, I've spoken to so many people on the pros and cons of using sperm from an anonymous donor. I'd really like to keep the conversation open and hear what others, across the country and the world, think about this topic.
Why is is so hard to find and egg donor? Are we to picky? We would love to find and intelligent, fun, athletic, and healthy donor. Yet every profile we have read just does not seem to be the right fit for us. Are we being unreasonable? I mean this is going to be our child, we don't want perfection, just someone that we feel is a perfect fit for us. Does this seem to unreasonable?
My partner and I have been together for 4 years and are getting married this spring. The next natural step for us is to plan a family. Since we are new to this stage, we are looking for some helpful tips from any other lesbian moms or moms-to-be.
Just a few questions to start our ball rolling:
What are the opinions of using an unknown sperm donor or of using a known donor?
Is there any sperm banks known to be better than others?
Is Cryogenic really the best? and if so do we need to plan a trip to CA?
I did the test at 31st of December. Apparently, i was bad girl this year, and Santa didnt bring me a present
But i was't and isn't in depression: i'm only 21, and only thing i'm loosing is some money and time, not hope)
Now i try insemination with stimulation. More medicines, but more children too!:)) But i hope that "more" will not mean "more than 3" :))))))
My Partner and I are looking to start a family. I have a questions that may be someone could answer. My Partner will be inseminated for the pregnancy. I wanted to know what rights will I have legally. In the state of California will I be the leagal parent. If someonce could direct me to where I could receive more information. Thank you.....
So we inseminated on the 22nd and 23rd of December, and it feels like time has stopped.
My boobs and nipples have gotten obscenely sore and it sucks because that is also a sign of my period. It sucks how much period signs and pregnancy signs are alike.
I have spent time recently with many different families. Some in the midwest, some with stay at home parents, some with working parents, some in Southern California, some in turmoil over a son lost to the streets and some rejoicing over the birth of their newest family addition. During this time, I have really come to realize that the most important job I will ever have is parenting. The most important role I have in this life is being a parent. I have recently watched other parents, some very engaged and "plugged in" and some very distant and checked out.
