I'm a 38-year-old woman with a very handsome, lovely, amazing guy who happened to be a woman when we met! We have been together 5.5 years and feel ready to have a kid. This brings up a little problem, because -- although he's had a very successful social, medical, and legal transition to life as a man -- we don't have any sperm in the house!
We live in a college town in the midwest. We're working with Pacific Reproductive Services to acquire sperm. We've already tried 1 ICI at home, but have decided to bump up to IUI on our next attempt.
I feel young, but at 38 I know that statistically we might run into some problems. I'm a hispanic, geeky, liberal, funny book-lover who's a little bit chubby. My partner is an affable, fun, blond guy into the outdoors. I'll definitey be the one to carry the baby. We chose several sperm donors that look a little bit like him.
Nice to meet you!
