I've been lurking here (not a queer mama, but a widowed mama looking into using donor sperm a few years down the road)
btw, do you all have any resources as far as message boards for those TTC w/ donor sperm? TIA. I am finding this journey really lonley. either people think it's outrageous or they just plain oppose it! but maybe it's just my situation. :
I hope you keep this thread going, I can't wait to hear when you are PG!
Its almost 2 years since I was on the TTC boards regularly, but I was on Fertility Friend (have to pay a fee) a LOT - there is a TTC with donor sperm board there which is a very interesting mix of queer and single & coupled heterosexual women - pretty much the ONLY thing everybody has in common there is wanting/needing donor sperm to get pg. Many of the other boards on FF are pretty conservative/non-MDC like, so watch out for that. But I liked the volume of folks onthe donor board there - you could always get advice quickly.
I also was on "rainbow conceptions" a small newer site for queer moms, we had some single non-queer moms there, too. And of course MDC. I found the regular TTC threads (one thread) here very welcoming. It did get a little old seeing everybody get pg faster than is common with donor sperm, though.
Good luck, everybody!
