Welcome to MDC! I am sending good wishes to you for your TTC journey. You might also want to post in the California Tribal Area for inquiries on care providers in your specific area.
Hello and welcome! Have you checked out the classes at Maia Midwifery? The founders wrote the book everyone talks about, The Guide to Lesbian Conception and Birth. I know the midwife there is going to be teaching her classes and doing consultations this month in Oakland. I found them very helpful to learn about timing and fertility in general. They recommend doing 2 inseminations each month. We do 2 each month, but I know others who only do one so it's tough to say. If you can pinpoint your ovulation precisely you might be able to do 1. I will PM you about the midwives. Good luck!

PokeyAC: thanks for the info about maia midwifery. We're considering doing one of their timing workshops, and it's interesting to know they recommend 2 IUI's per cycle.
My pleasure! There are lots of great forums here and I hope you find several that meet your interests. i look forward to seeing you around the forums.
And for your TTC journey and for finding a midwife/midwife group that's a great fit for you and your partner.
I am going to begin ttc in November with AI. My understanding, from tons of online reading, is that frozen sperm only live about 12 hours. Just what I have read, I don't have sites. If so, then you have to predict your O almost exactly. It is possible to get pg with only one but if I were you and had the resources, I would choose to do 2 IUI to up the chances of conception.
