Hope we both have fertile cycles and good news to share soon!

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. :

anyway,
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!

I agree with all of that. We're about to start trying again--I've subbed to the ttc in our 30s thread here and once we have a Swim Team scheduled to arrive, I'll sub to the One Thread here, as well. I "met" a lot of excellent people here last time around through those threads.

And FF connected me with several other ttc bloggers, as well as being a great source of support when we were ttc. Again, I'll resub to that once we're more firm on when we'll start trying again.
