MORRIANG there are soooo many reasons why you should wait to test, but being that this is your 1st attempt, I am sure we all know you won't wait so since insem was the 1st, I would agree with MYALWAYS and say the 14th. GL
babymaking~ congrats...FX for a i would say that was quite rude what your friend had to say.
mm~ im definitely leaning toward a boy but of course everyone is hoping for a girl. but i know i dont care either way as long as it's healthy.

Hello all in the forum we are new here and we are trying to conceive #2. We have a 5 year old daughter already that was conceived thru home ai using donor sperm from a bank, but this time we will be using a donor that we found on known donor registry. We go for our first insem at the end of the month as long as AF comes on time this month. T minus 2 days and counting. Anywho we are extrememly nervous for some reason I mean I cant sleep have been having wierd dreams when I do finally make it to bed. We are hoping that we will be able to make it happen the first time, although i guess everyone probably feels the same way. So exited for everyone who is TTC and i wish for all of us
Sadly, my water broke early Friday morning and Azriel Aiden was born 4/14/12 at 8:55am, at 20 weeks and 1 day and he lived for just under an hour. He was so strong, he survived the night and Saturday morning with no fluid at all. We planned for the first time and prayed for baby and we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. We'll never forget him and will always love him.
Ready~ Glad all is well with your little one and I hope the test comes back just fine.
Pinkorblue- I am so very sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts.
My partner and I tested last friday which was 1 dpo. The test was negative. As this is our first month of trying, I'm not exactly sure the number of days that are in my cycle so I am not sure what day af is supposed to come. According to an app I have on my iphone that helps monitor fertility, I chose the option of a 28 day cycle as that is what they have listed as average. I ovulated about 2 days earlier then the app said I would based on when my last period had started so I think I'm maybe like a 26th day cycle maybe...so if I'm a 26 day cycle, af should have been today but hasn't happened so far. If I'm a 28 day cycle, it would be on tuesday the 17th...so I guess we'll see. My gf has been out of town all weekend and I was instructed that I better not test without her this weekend...she gets back tonight and we will be testing monday morning which will be 16 dpo...fingers are crossed and hoping for the best. I honestly don't feel pregnant, don't feel any different then normal but one of my friends who just had her first baby said she didn't feel pregnant either and was surprised when they got their positive so I hope this is also the case with us. I'll let ya guys know
Also, my friend who I just spoke of informed me that her doctor recommended that they use clomid even though they ovulate regularly but because they are doing insemination at home and later eventually did IUI. Is anyone else taking clomid because if we are unsuccessful this month, I may look into it for next month. I looked it up online and many people say that they have a hard time getting it prescribed if they have no obvious fertility issues such as not ovulating...others say they just buy it from over seas and it has worked for them. Any thoughts on this or experience?
