Hi, I am new to this site but have been reading blogs and posts for a few weeks. My partner and I made the decision to try and have a baby this year. We would like to start trying early summer. We have been researching sperm banks, trying to meet people who have gone through this, and trying to get as much information as possible. We live in Seattle, and so far it looks like the sperm banks we'd be interested in are in California. Does anyone have any advice about this process? Any recommendations of sperm banks? Any recommendations for fertility clinics, etc?
My partner and I are thinking of starting up a family and are in talks with a known donor.
Our donor and his partner want to have regular visitation rights.
I am wondering if anyone has had any bad expieriences with such a situation ??
Should we involve them right from the conception or only after the baby is born??
I am also concerned that they might over the next few months want more of a say in the baby's life.
I am a 29 year old straight, single professional woman.I am very happy being single but would dearly love a child. I am looking for a known co-parent. I would like someone who would like to have some involvement in the child's life....open to how much or how little this would be.

Post about waiting. Last test was negative, inseminated last month. We'll know if it took in 9 days or so. AHHH the waiting is so frustrating and shaky. You never know whether to be excited or try to forget about the whole process for fear you may jinx it. Cross your fingers and hope for a post in two weeks that says we're pregnant.
A conundrum - what could happen if the Pope secretively father's a child through artificial insemination?
Have you read the book Angels and Demons by Dan Brown? No? The movie will be released on May 15th, 2009.
Again, I cannot emphasize this enough, openness and transparency are always the best policy.
“Every Canadian adult has the right to truthful information about his or her origins. We all need to know who we are and where we come from. It does not matter whether we are adopted or conceived by gamete donation; we all have the right to this information. The Adoption Council of Canada supports the right of all adults conceived by gamete donation to truthful information about their origins,” said Wendy Rowney, vice‑president of the Adoption Council of Canada.
I'm linking a couple of recent studies some of you might already be aware of but if not, I thought you might find interesting.

Well my partner and I have decided that we want to expand out family. We have one son who is 11. Since she carried her son from a previous relationship I have decided that I want to have the wonderful experience of carrying our future children. I had to have one surgery in October to take care of my infertility issues. That was like going through hell because I was told I was never be able to have children and I found a wonderful doctor that made it possible. Now here comes the real fun, finding an obgyn that is open to helping us conceive.
