after a PG (and m/c) with 345 back in april, we are getting ready to try again. 345 was a second choice for us... 232 wasn't avail. back in april so joanne suggested 345. we were hoping to go back to 232 this cycle but he is "out of stock". she sent me a list of suggested donors that were available. i am curious about 336... has anyone tried with him? otherwise i think it will be back to 345 for us... it "worked" the last time, i guess... it just didn't work out. hmmmm...
any thoughts?

225!

Hi all! I'm brand new to this board. I'm a 38yr old SMC and just had my first IUI with #225 yesterday.

Welcome!

Good Luck!

ps. Even if you are not queer, you are welcome to join us on the queer conceptions board, as that is a much more active board.

Just a note of concern. I got a PM that is probably completely on the up and up, but it sort of creeped me out.

It is probably not a good idea to pm people out of the blue to ask for pictures of their child because you are interested in that donor. You may be a perfectly awesome person with good intentions, but for all we know you are a pedophile collecting pictures of children. If you want contact with individuals in that manner, it's probably better for you to join the sibling registry and go through them.

Hello,
I plan on using donor 330. Has anyone had a bfp from using him?
post #128 of 259
Trying~ We are using #38...I know that he has had a few pregnancies. Good luck to you!

Werhli~ Well...so far he hasn't worked for us...if he doesn't work this time I think that we will think about changing donors. Do you think it is werid using a donor that has had so many pregnancies? My dw was concerned at first, but after trying for a few months with other sperm from another sb and not getting bfp...we just want to know that the sperm is good and able to fertilize an egg.

i don't think it is weird at all... we actually used #38 for one cycle! we figure if he has had that many success' it really increases our chances, right?! i was just laughing thinking about him being Joanne's "super donor". good luck!

got the same email. bold in asking me to link them to pictures of other people's children. i declined and told them that besides, there was little if any chance of their child looking like other's children. please don't email me asking me about pictures of children conceived by a particular donor. thank you!

giggle... i've been wondering where you've been... what's going on with you? haven't seen you in a while, here or over at babycenter.com

We're finally making the switch on our next cycle to Midwest. Anyone current MSP members have updates on donors? We really want blue eyes, and the rest isn't as important.
post #135 of 259
donors 345 & 038 have blue eyes... off the top of my head. i'll look at the profiles i have and see who else, give me a little while. both of these donors are considered "super" donors.
post #136 of 259
Woo-hoo STRONG swimmers. LOL. I emailed and left a message for Joanne, asking which forms she needed from us and our doc, and also asked for donors that are currently available.

I am 15dpo today, but feel AF cramps coming on, I think. :-(
post #137 of 259
We are now using donor #372...hopefully he will be the one to help get us prego! I love Joanne she is so great and helpful.

Good luck with using MWSB.
post #138 of 259
2ez: 372, 414, 307, and 188 also have blue eyes... i've got all of these profiles and would be willing to send them to you... just saying.

eta: i think 188 may be a "super" donor as well...
post #139 of 259
Thanks wehrli. I'd love if you could send those to me. I think we really like 345, based off what we've read. Did you ever have a tough time getting in touch with Joanne? I emailed and called yesterday with no luck in hearing back from her.
post #140 of 259
yes... i've had a hard time getting ahold of her. i suggest to just keep calling back. i don't leave messages often, i just call until i get ahold of her. oh, and i got your PM... i'm on it!
