AF reared her ugly head early this morning with cramps in tow. I think I inseminated too early and am planning on waiting a full 24 hrs after my first positive opk for the first insemination and then an additional 12 hrs after that for the second one this next time. I knew the odds of getting lucky on the first cycle were low but somehow still thought that now that we're using some good stuff, we'd instantly fall pregnant like everyone else I know.
Ooh I'll join! We're WTT until January. Going with the same known donor we used for our donor. Did AI at home. Worked first shot with dd. Hoping and praying #2 comes quickly too! I'm nervous because we bought a house and moved. Now we're evenfurther from our donor so I'm worried about how it'll all work out. But he's reassured me we will make it work!
Welcome mama and congrats to getting success on the first try! That's incredible! So happy for you that your donor is willing to donate for baby #2. I wish we had some fresh DS to use...it's so hard to time the insemination using frozen DS with such a short viability window.
I have PCOS so my O date changes each cycle so realistically I couldn't use frozen as I can't predict O to the degree you have to with frozen. We would be throwing money away. It took so long to find our donor too, but he's really a great guy and we had him terminate his rights in September when OH adopted dd (could have been done sooner, but we just hadn't gotten around to it) so it makes us much more comfortable to use him again. Even if it'll take a miracle to make it work with our distances now.
Aww Kyla - you're totally going to lucky again this time around, I know it!
Girl I and FREAKING out! But on the inside lol. No idea how it'll work if I'm due to ovulate toward the end of the workweek. For dd we gotndonations 7 and 5 days before O so I know his swimmers can last long, but I'd rather not tempt it a second time. If O is close to the weekend we can get a hotel near him for a night or two, but other than there being a miracle of her I'm working up near us I don't know..,
Sounds like you've really stumbled upon a good donor, Kylas. So glad it worked out with the TPR, and it sounds like he's really willing to make an effort for this next insemination. Hopefully your cycle surprises you and is cooperative.
