We used a known donor for a while, too. We did both at home inseminations and IUI. I'll be happy to talk more about how we handled things, if you decide to go that route!

My ultrasound is 8:40 Thursday morning. I am anxious and am starting to lose my patience!

We use a known donor, but neither of us knew him beforehand and he lives in another state so we don't run the risk of ever seeing him if we don't want to. It definitely lasts longer than frozen. Dd was from donations 7 /'d 5 days before O. I Oed prwttt late.

Still waiting here. My last cycle before trying has started! AF is just ending. So just waiting pretty much. Slightly terrified next month we start trying!

I can definitely understand the lack of patience. Hoping you get good news at the ultrasound, and there's a good follicle for them to trigger!

Wow! Can't believe it's almost time for you to start trying! This year has really flown by. Hope this second time around is quick and easy for you!

Ok ladies, I did another opk this afternoon cuz I like to do it twice a day to narrow down my ovulation window as much as possible. Yesterday's opk is at the top, this morning's in the middle, and then this afternoon's at the bottom. Based on these, when do you advise I inseminate? My cp is HSO today, and I'm also having EWCM...I'm just not having an O pains yet...but maybe I won't this cycle? Ugh, I really don't want to inseminate too early but also don't want to completely miss the window. I just updated FF with my info, and it's saying tomorrow is O day. I wanted to wait a full 24 hours after my positive opk, so maybe I should inseminate tomorrow morning. What do you think?

Do you know how long your LH surge is? Frozen lasts up to 24 hours, but from my readings and research it's most successful to have the sperm waiting for the egg rather than having the egg waiting for the sperm.

No clue how long my surge is, but I'm thinking it's on the longer side since I had at least 36 hrs worth of positive opk's last month. I had also read that it's better to have the sperm waiting for the egg, and it takes 7 hrs for it to get to the egg, so do you think it's best that I do the first one in the morning? I have two vials that I was planning on doing 12 hrs apart.

Mine is 36 hours as well. I get positives am, pm and the following am then negative.

That plan sounds good. So hard to judge with frozen unfortunately.

Ok thanks!! This whole frozen thing is definitely tricky and way more stressful. I'll have DH put some more fresh in there just in case.

Hello all...may I join!?


Hi Ladies, my name is Tiffany and I am a single woman planning on TTC #1 starting in January 2017 using frozen donor sperm. I'm thinking of doing 3-6 home ICI inseminations before graduating to IUI if it doesn't take right away. I'm just turning 28 and have no known health issues so I am hopeful that with the right timing I will get a BFP from the home insemenations! I've been stalking BnB since last year and have learned so much and have loved following so many amazing women on this journey.

I identify as asexual and while I have never wanted a traditional relationship, I have ALWAYS wanted to be a mother. I want it all, the special baby time, the active toddler, the toilet training and picky eating, the parent-teacher conferences, the moody teen years...everything! I am an RN and also run an online business from home that can support me comfortably staying home long term if needed, I'm not wealthy but I am stable. I am super close to my mom and sister and have the full support of everyone I know, I'm very open with my "Choice Mom" plans. I am choosing to go through a bank for the legal assurances, the anonymity and to simplify the process.

I have thought about this for years and finally am ready to start TTC. I would love to have your support and join you all on your journeys too-there is something so special about celebrating the conception and eventually the birth of a new baby-no matter who it belongs to!
