Smilingsara- Congratulations on telling your parents. It's always hard to know when the right time is, but looks like you found it. I am glad they are excited for you.
Invitin- Two of my closet friends used NW Cryobank and conceived their second try. They were happy with the quality of the donors, and the price. They did run into some customer service issues. Specifically, they were told sperm would be released once the quarantine period was over , but there was some sort of delay and it ended up being another 3 months. They also had a few hiccups with shipping. In general, they felt that one way how the bank keeps their cost downs is by having cut some corners in the customer service/organization department. They felt they frustration was worth the cost savings. My friend also got a little addicted to their online forum.
Carmen- Sorry about your BFN. Hope your appointments help.
Sky - I hope your donor drama settles down. I am glad he has many positive qualities, and hopefully the postal stuff will work out.
Lise- Wow! 21 days cycle? Good thing you trusted your instincts and sent the goods back. Nice job saving sperm and money!
AFM: Well, I am now 8 days post ovulation. I tested the afternoon of day 6 because my in-laws were in town. It was negative, though not surprising. My temps are still toasty, boobs hurt, and I almost threw up at the bus stop. I know this all sounds great, but I am not sure. I have a sensitive stomach, and I frequently feel sick when I am nervous. I basically ignore it. But since I am in the TWW, I am paying so much attention to how I feel. It's a feedback loop. I feel sick, think "wow, I feel sick," then I feel sicker. For those who have been pregnant, does the nausea/upset stomach of early pregnancy feel different than the GI symptoms you may have experienced before?
