Are you sure the other one is for woman only using donor 038? because everyone that is posting there seems to be using other donors besides 038.
I'll join your group as well. Are you claire?

Donor #9 Success

Hi,

My partner and I used donor #9 and have three beautiful baby boys. I carried the first child and got pregnant my first attempt. Our oldest is 4 years old--lots of energy and as sweet as they come. It took a little longer with my partner. She got pregnant after 4 attempts but had a misscarriage. Then when we were good to go again, she pregnant on the second attempt. We had twin boys in December of 2007. Both are fantastic and are very different from one another. One is a little firecracker and the other is a little more mellow. We are on the Donor Sibling Registry where you can read more about us. We are really happy with our little guys. They are all so different so that it is hard to say what comes from the donor and what comes from each of us. It seems from the other parents of Donor #9 babies, that they all share the really active gene but that they are also really sweet and loving. Wouldn't trade donors for the world. If you have any specific questions let me know.

We've seen the long profiles, and what donor sib registry says, and we know Joanne's opinion of the "super donors". We'd just love to hear some real stories about these donors. Postive or negative. Feel free to PM if you'd rather. Any info would be lovely, thanks.

More info on Donor #9 MWSB

Hi again,

I am new to the board and so I hope that I am posting correctly. :-) Anyway, I thought I would mention that my partner and I are a mixed-race couple. I am Irish-American and she is African-American. We both used donor #9 and the babies all look so different from one another. Our first child, who I carried, is blond, blue-eyed, and as fair as they come--even though donor#9 is bi-racial and is of medium brown complexion. We thought for sure that we had gotten the wrong sperm. One of the twins is lighter complexioned and looks just like his mama. The other twin is a toasty caramel color, but looks Indian (India-Indian) with dark, very fine, almost straight hair and fine features. Everyone who sees him thinks he's Indian. I've seen several pictures of other Donor #9 babies and they are all beautiful. In some I can see similarities between the children, big eyes, curly hair, etc--and, in others, it is hard to see the connection (at least from the pictures). I just thought I would share a little.

Good luck!

Thanks for the #9 info!!! We chose him, and my DP is about 7dpo. Blonde hair? Really? It is so so funny how genetics work sometimes.

I saw another set of twins on the donor sibiling registry - fertility drugs or really fertile sperm?? (or really fertile mamas?) we'd love twins. Ahh, really, we'd just love a baby. Our son is 3, so he'll be 4 when the (as yet to be conceived) baby is born - have you guys liked that age spread?

We are feeling really good about our #9 choice, but thanks for the extra positive push!

Hi Ladies!

Newbie here. My DP and I have a 5-year-old daughter through adoption and been working with Midwest since July. We used donor 009. My third insemination was Sept 10 and I just got my BFP yesterday! : Woohoo! Assuming all goes as planned, our newest little one will be born right around our daughter's 6th bday.

Hi. I used donor 9 and was blessed with two wonderfully beautiful children. I have a little girl born August 2006 and I have a little boy born May 2008. Both children were conceived on my 1st attempt. I'm so excited to know that my children have other siblings out there. I plan to join the donor sibling registry in hopes of establishing a relationship with other families who have used this donor.

That's great. We plan to join the sib registry as well to connect with other #9ers!

Would you talk with me through my email? I have been using donor 009 for a year and a half with one chemical pregnancy in May 2012. My partner and I are looking for baby photos from this donor. We are still trying with this donor and remain super positive about getting pregnant.
