Ladies, please do not forget the TEAM RAINBOW MUMMIES group/thread that was started some time ago, there are alot of ladies there that need encouragement, have good information, etc.... It is for more than just TTC so alot of the ladies haven't been on this particular thread and have been left behind there.... There is also the LESBIAN/GAY PARENTS group/thread.... Just do a search to find any. Let's support each other.

Just saw this thread and am really excited to meet all of you. My fiancee and I have been together for 3.5 years and started TTC 3 months ago.

I am 31, she is 28. I want to get pregnant first as I'm older and have some uterus issues. Had 2 polyps removed in 2008 and open surgery to remove uterine fibroids last year. 3 months after surgery I stopped getting my period. Turns out I have anovulation so doc gives me provera to kickstart my period. Sstill does not solve the problem and Doc diagnosed me with adenomyosis as well, so I really wonder if I will be able to get pregnant.

we found a friend to be the donor and he generously donates whenever we need it.

Right now I am on clomid cycle 3, doesnt look like itz working although I am ovulating now.

So hello all, congrats on your BFPs and hope those of you who are TTC get your BFP get it real soon!

Hi all, Thought I should throw myself to the lesbians

So my partner and I have been together 11 years and planning ttc for the last year or so. This last cycle was our first attempt at ttc. We have a lovely donor who's an old friend of mine I'd lost touch with. Unfortunately, he lives nearly 4000km (2500 miles) away.

We live in remote Australia, in a part of the country where lesbian and single women cannot access sperm banks or ART clinics. So home insem is the go. I'll be flying 4 hours each way once a month for as long as it takes. So far work has been pretty accommodating, and the money is holding out - so we'll just have to see.

I have found it so helpful to be on these boards and to talk through the journey with people in the same boat. Congratulations for your bfp MrsMM24, I'm so excited for you

But I'm especially pleased to find the lesbians ttc thread. There's just some aspects of this journey that I think only other queer women understand.

Babydust to all of you.

Hey!!

Just thought I'd come say hi (:

Been with my partner (& love of my life) Mandi for nearly 7 months now.
I know it's not very long but we know how we feel about each other & tbh, we don't care what anyone might think (:

Ideally, we would have waited a few years before TTC but circumstances change & I have ovarian and tube problems and therefore don't have all the time in the world to wait before we try (& there's a chance I can't even conceive). So, here we are, waiting to ovulate to try our first cycle (:

Stalk my journal if you like - stalkers are always welcome ;D

Welcome!!! We love to have more Lesbians, and any positive ladies!

That is such a large distance. Luckily you found your good friend. I can tell you that if you get on the internet, there are quite a few cryobanks that will ship out of the US to your home. In NY, the midwest, California,Philly, etc to name a few. You should look into them while you TTC. I hope that this thread is as helpful as it has been for me....
