Had another insemination last night. It went a lot smoother now that I have gotten the hang of inserting the softcup I'm debating having one more insemination on my birthday or not.

Hi Rainbobby18,
I felt the same way after my second insemination, with the first one I was very worried about inserting the softcup correctly but the second time it seemed much easier. I wish I had been able to inseminate one or two more times, I was only able to meet up with my donor twice this cycle and I think I timed it a little too early.
I'm finding the wait incredibly long, the first few days after inseminating I was sure that something was going on and I was going to get a bfp, but the last couple days I've felt like I'm out this cycle.

You're not out until the red lady sings. Fx for you

Fingers crossed ladies! I got my peak about 36hrs ago and off to meet the donor in a few hours! I think I'm going to be a little too late on this cycle but figured having a tiny shot would be better than no shot at all!

Although saying all that, (TMI ahead) my cervix has been really low and really soft, which doesn't match what you're supposed to be at when you're ovulating (which is high and soft) and I've got barely no CM, so god knows what's going on! I feel like it's doubly difficult when you're using a donor because most of us don't have the luxury of getting inseminations whenever we want, for me at least there's a lot of planning involved and if that doesn't match with when I actually ovulate it feels like a massive waste of time and money. But it's worked once so fingers crossed it'll work again!

I treated myself to a nice posh hotel on the beach, so once he's done and gone I'm going to enjoy a big comfy bed and beach walks and hope my softcup is in right

Fx and baby dust for you Cinderella!

I agree it is hard to schedule inseminations at the right time with a donor.

My two inseminations are done too!
Really struggled with the soft cup this morning, last month it was fine and went in perfectly, this month it just felt like it was in sideways and I donít think it held anything 🤷🏻*♀️😂

My app says 10 days to af, but I donít think thatís accurate as I only just got my positive opk 🤷🏻*♀️ Either way, Iíll be testing in 10 days! Fingers crossed and baby dust ladies! 🤞🏻🤞🏻

Oh God... I need some advice regarding donors 🙈
We were talking online for about 8 months and then met up for coffee and continued to chat for a few months. I was quite clear on my expectations, how I wanted him to be known but definitely just as a donor and not a daddy, with the occasional meeting (maybe twice a year at most) just so he wasnít this unknown entity. He agreed with this and said he was grateful to have some involvement....

Get to last night and he sent me a text saying Ďcanít wait to be a dad again...í 🤨
I donít want to make it more than it is because he might not mean anything by it, but he seems to slowly be changing the goal posts and Iím not comfortable with it. (As an aside, I went on his Facebook account yesterday for the first time in months and heís pretty much the exact opposite to me in terms of politics, which might seem like a strange thing to focus on but itís just making me think heís not a very nice person, Iím definitely a liberal lefty and believe in socialism and he is as right wing as they get).

What would you do? He got me pregnant on the first try so on a selfish level I just think crack on with it, I donít need to live with the guy so it shouldnít matter that weíre so different. And if I were to call things off with him, how on earth do you go about doing that without leaving any tension?

Any thoughts much appreciated! I think you ladies are in the unique position of being the only ladies able to provide an opinion on this!

It can be a little awkward but it's something to talk about so he's clear on where he stands as for his online life don't let it worry you as long as he knows his role and doesn't try to push for more or push his opinions on you I would keep him as a donor only find another if you're no longer comfortable with him
