We had dinner with our first choice pkd last night to go over any questions/concerns he had and our expectations. He thought it all sounded great and accepted!!
: I am so excited. I was SO nervous last night!
We've bumped up our time line a little bit, b/c he may be moving in the fall. So it looks like we will start trying in April or May, instead of August. That is like craaaazy soon. Wow!
Ok, so I have a couple of questions...
If we suspect that I might have fertility issues (PCOS -- but I *am* ovulating regularly), should we think about having his sperm tested right off the bat, so that if we *do* have issues we will KNOW it is me, or should we try the first month or two and then get him tested, if we aren't getting preg.? (Sorry, I know that was a horrid run-on sentence.)
If we should do the sperm count/motility, where do you get that done? Can it be done in a regular gp's office, or are we going to need a reproductive specialist for that?
FWIW -- Not sure if it is relevant to the above questions, but we are planning to attempt an intervention-free, home insemination, at this time.
Also, the legal stuff -- should we do our legal paperwork *now*, before we start TTC, or wait until we are pregnant?
Ok, I think that is it for now. I am so excited!!
Thanks for being here!
