Okay, so this weekend we had some big, big talks. DW is inclined to want a baby NOW, as am I... We'll be trying again with her as bio in Feb(Mar), but she brought up moving forward for adoption options at the same time as working toward ttc... The more I thought about it, the more I would like to try with me as bio instead of working toward adoption. We talked about it and came up with some sort of plan... We're going to try with DW for two more cycles and then start trying with me for four cycles after that. She'd like to do more temping and OPKs during the months of trying with me so that we have good data for when we go back to trying with her again... She'd also like to work on loosing weight during that time in hopes of that improving things.... And then, even if we are to be successful with me as bio in those four months she'd like to keep trying for 'lesbian twins'...
So, my question is... is this a good plan? What should we be thinking about and talking about to make this plan work? I'm excited... and worried at the same!

K, H, and baby E (who is now three!!!)

Why not just both of you TTC at the same time? It unlikely you'd both get prego at the same time and you wouldn't have to skip cycles waiting to see if one of you got prego.

Seriously?

: I agree with Satori, if you'll be ok with 'lesbian twins' then why wait. Better chance of either of you getting pregnant if you are both trying. Go for it, and no need to worry. You can only have so much control, at least if you are putting the sperm, you are making it an option!
