It's nice to find such a group and topic that just fits, isn't it? So glad you like it!

Yeah! It rocks! This morning I came upon one of your posts...that you were going to make a list of all your skills, I think it was from Jan '11... Did you do it? I haven't read far enough to see if you said anything about it over there...

post #506 of 515
I did go ahead and write up my list. It's floating around here somewhere. Its been awhile since i looked at it. I may go back and find it.

Have you figured out by what means you'll be attaining your sperm?

 

Anyone else out there want to check in and say hi?  wave.gif

 

he went in to the DMH office to register for them to supervise visits, found out he would have to change his work schedule and walked out. i figure i'm lucky that i got full custody and just continue to hope that he will decide to move to california after his parents move out there to be closer to his other brother. please! praying.gif

 

i plan to go through a sperm bank. i read about 1 that caters to single women and lesbians earlier on this thread i think. i really don't want to have to deal with another male at this point, not even briefly. nut.gif

MeandK, I can totally understand why you'd prefer to go the sperm bank route! I had pretty much written off being in a relationship and then potential Mr. Wonderful showed up in my life last summer and we nearly married, but it turned out it wasn't as great as we thought lol so we broke up and I was kinda bummed to find out I wasn't preggers on that cycle as I was walking out the door-it could've been so perfect winky.gif Still not interested in a relationship and then yesterday my best friend & I were out perusing yard sales, which is something we never do and the 1st place we stopped at had a huge cloth diaper stash for sale that I bought-happy mother's day to me from my future children love.gif The mama that was selling them and I started chatting and turns out she wants to set me up w/a guy she knows that's a doc and wants a family and a partner that wants to stay home w/babies and garden and can things, etc which is totally me, so even though I think I'm not interested my curiosity is piqued...so we'll see if anything happens there...but I'm definitely not holding my breath.

I researched all the sperm banks sooooo much lol I think this is the one you may be thinking of... http://www.thespermbankofca.org/ I'm pretty sure I still have the spreadsheet of all the banks too if you need/want it.

maybe the doc will turn out to be the key (and you won't have to foot all the bills by yourself!). good luck with that. innocent.gif

yes, please send me the list. i'll check them out! i'll pm you my email address. thanks!

I am a single mother by choice in a way. I got pregnant as a result of rape and decided to keep the baby. I am happy to report that my DS is now 2 weeks and 4 days old. I couldn't be happier. My family is helping me raise him until I can get back on my feet. BD hasn't been heard from since he found out the baby was his and threatened us both. I'm perfectly content with being a single mother and putting my life on hold. Now that he's here, I couldn't imagine my life being any different.

Welcome.

You have such a little baby! Congrats! How are you both adjusting to everything? Having family around to help out is so nice!

I'm sorry to hear about your rape. I hope you're well and will get back on your feet soon enough.

I went to a new holistic health practitioner this week. She was amazing!! Found out I have Lyme disease...that would explain why I've felt so crappy for most of my life! irked.gif thumb.gif It's such a mixed blessing to finally know what I'm dealing with...On the one hand I can finally do stuff for my body to help repair the damage and on the other...Lyme...Seriously?!? All the stories I've heard people like never get over it-boooo!!!

I really wanted to try to get preggers this year...So now I'm in limbo, again, to see how quickly I can turn my health around before TTC. sigh. it's always something...

I have a re-eval in 6 weeks w/this practitioner. I hope I wow her w/my mad healing skillz winky.gif (she was already impressed that I wasn't bedridden w/how bad off I apparently am, so that's a plus!)

Tell me something happy love.gif

Wish I had something happy for you, prescottchels. At least you're doing rather well with how "bad off" you are. That only means you'll go up from here and if you're already doing well, imagine how much better you'll be when you're TTC. It's May now and even though it feels like its passing fast (to me anyway!) you may still get your chance to try before the year is over.

 

As for me, I'm in the starting/planning phase. I think I want to work towards trying in November or December. I'd love to be able to go for it today (lol!) but I'm working towards the end of this year due to a course I want to take and timing. J will be 21 - 22 months old by then which is just unbelievable!

 

Hope you all are well!
