Thank you KPeakey. I know that it's daunting at times but honestly, once you are holding your gorgeous baby that's the only thing that matters, how you got her/him is irrelevant. I wish you a speedy and successful TWW, I look forward you hearing how you get on.

Hi Ladies!

DH and I are restarting our journey to conceive this month with our known donor. I conceived on the second cycle at the beginning of the year, but unfortunately miscarried. Hoping I conceive just as quickly this time and will be starting progesterone suppositories as soon as I ovulate to help this one stick!

This month we officially hit the 3.5 year mark of TTC. How depressing. Whenever I think about how long it's been, I always have a moment of "I can't believe this is my life." Guess the only thing I can do is just keep pushing forward till I get my rainbow baby.

Good luck, waypast! Sorry to hear about your mc this year, I hope your journey brings you your little one quickly.

My wife and I found an amazing book that describes conception in a neutral (and young age appropriate) way. It focuses on the medical side of things rather than the “mother/father” story. We plan on circulating it into our daughters books from a young,toddler age. It’ll work for both our kids, who came into our family in their own way (one adopted from foster care and one conceived through donor sperm). I can let you know what it is if anyone is interested!

I would love to know about that book savasanna!

I ordered a book about baby joining family for my son online hoping for the best and of course it's all 'mummy and daddy!'

I would love to know the name of the book! It definitely sounds like it will be beneficial for our family as well.

I'm on cd12 and took my second opk this morning...negative but getting closer. The cycle I conceived, I got a donation the day before and the day after my positive opk. I'm trying for the same timing this cycle since I'm not sure which donation was the winning one. Timing for the day before the positive opk is mostly a guess though, so we'll see how it turns out. I'm hoping to at least get a donation the day of and the day after my positive opk.

Have any of you look at the library section of the Donor Conception Network? https://www.dcnetwork.org/catalog/books-and-pdfs

There are loads of books on there which cover lots of different family make ups and also regarding talking to other family members as well as children.

Got my today on 11dpo!

I'm over the moon excited and hoping for a sticky bean this time! I'm taking 200mg progesterone this go round just in case that was the problem before.

I ordered a "Hello Daddy" onesie and printed out a cute pregnancy poem to surprise dh with. I put them in a padded envelope, then put it in the mailbox, and asked him to go check the mail once he got home. He keeps saying how excited he is and said he wasn't surprised cuz it happened so quickly before with the donor. I feel bad that he has to deal with the fact that he hasn't been able to get me pregnant in 3.5 years, but I'm glad that he was on board with us going this route and that we were able to make the best out of a difficult situation.
