i just had a look on that co-parent match - it fascinates me as i never knew sites like that existed?
is it expensive to do it that way? do the donors charge?

Some of them charge, if they do, dont use them! Donation usually means free!!

Urgh.

Things aren't going so great here at the moment -- OH has just been told she may be being made redundant. Won't find out for definite until the end of the week, so that definitely scuppers our plans

Still, I've ordered a couple of books from Amazon, including one about being the none-biological mummy, so hopefully that'll help. After all this is over with I'm going to suggest we have a chat about the +ves and -ves of having a baby, for both of us...think out -ve might surprise each other!

Sam, to find my co-parent/donor I'm using
http://www.co-parents.net/indexeng.php?lang=english
and also http://www.co-parentmatch.com

I've paid on both of these (they are about 25 each so not very expensive) that gives you access to the profiles and you can send/receive as many messages as you want to.

There are a few other sits out there who more specifically deal more with donors than co-parents. You can find a few through google.

The only donors that I've seen that expect payment as those wanting travel costs. They are technically not allowed to charge for their swimmers, I think the ones that do this are the more excessive donors who claim success storys of lots and lots of babys. They may even be telling the truth, but there is an obvious reason why official sperm banks cap the number of successful pregnancys to 8. The thought of too many unknown half siblings out there is just not something I'm comfortable with.

we have been speaking to someone on co-parents site and he sounded like the perfect donor and is only up the road but then he said he would not meet couples wishing to use AI face-to-face............ to us that seems a bit weird as surely then he could be anyone and look completely different to what he said??
We are both new to looking into this and it seems rather odd that he will donate either NI/AI but will not meet if AI, he said you give him your address and phone number and he will ring when delivering a fresh donation at the door.
Any thoughts anyone???

I don't think I'd be comfortable using a donor who wouldn't agree to meet face to face. I guess it depends if you think you can trust him. I checked my donor's identification to match to the name on his STD test results. I don't know how you can do that without meeting face to face. Maybe I'm less trusting than others.

I wudn't trust it either, and I def wudn't be giving out ur address and number to a stranger!!!! It does sound odd, maybe he's just covering his back? I say get his number and arrange a time when you can call him, he should be ok with that, if not then Id stay well clear!
I do know that one donor we used, we only had contact when he was bringing the 'stuff' cus he lived near us, maybe he doesn't wat you to be able to identify him in the street?
