Can you sit down and talk to him about donated sperm? I know it wouldn't be his "biological" child but i would still be YOU GUYS' CHILD reguardless!!! I guess it's just something that you two would have to talk about...and come to a common ground on. Also, make sure that you guys have the funds since you would have to do IUI or IVF. If nothing else have you thought about adoption? Just asking, when did he relaps and when was the last time he had a test done? What do the doctors say? I guess there are so many factors in the difference choices that you have, but you do have options out there to being a mother. It might not be in a way that you always thought you might be one, but there are options out there for the two of you. G/L and i really hope that the two of you can come up with something that BOTH will be happy with!
