    Any solo mummies (or daddies) to be currently TTC via assisted conception? Wonder if we can form a solo parent-to-be thread. There are plenty of lesbian support threads, or IVF support threads - but struggling to find a group for the single parents currently planning to conceive :)

    Hi there! I just saw this Birdlee! Great! Hi, :). Any progress? Love talking with everyone on here, but just thought some 'solo-mum-to-be' talk might be good. There are plenty of solo mums, and people using donor sperm - but I haven't really come across too many people who are planning to be a solo mum.

    Hi ladies, I'm a month out from embryo transfer. Just started Lupron last night. I worry about resting after the transfer because my almost 2 year old will most definitely want to be lifted up every second of the day. As a single parent with no family around, these things get real challenging.

    Good luck during the tww birdies and all the best for the next try kn.

    Hmm - 10dpo - not to long to test again. On my first month of ttc back in feb. I paid so much on tests; think i got a little over excited. Now I just wait until period. I missed it once; but didn't take a test - Think it was a mmc - wish i had tested so id know if it was or wasnt! I'm at ovulation now - so about to begin another month. Best friend just out she's pregnant after two months of ttc - so feeling a little guttered!

    Also; Cranberry - That must be tough. Good on you though!! I'm sure your little one will love a sibling :). I think 2 years is a neat age gap.

    Same here :thumbup: Well I'm wtt for my first! It'll be by AI with a donor in November. I'm single and a lesbian. I think a solo parent threat is a great idea.

    Good luck everyone :dust:

    I like the idea. I will be doing this on my own. I will be 40 in February and never had children. I want one and can't wait for a partner at my age. I have an appointment Oct 9 with FS, so as soon as he says I can try IUI, I'm going to. The only thing I know at this point is that my AMH is 0.57.

    Oh good luck Melody! I was hoping others would think it was a good idea. I know that there are solo-parenting threads around, but I struggled to find a 'planned' solo parent thread. It's a lot different going through the TTC stage alone, compared to with someone.

    Hi Ladies! I'm Brandi, single mom to Zoe, Isaiah, and Anberlin, and 5 days ago, I had a tubal reversal done. My youngest daughter was conceived via a known donor and we stayed friends over the last 3 years. He has stopped donating, but agreed to donate to me again so our daughter could have a full sibling. Over the last few months, though, sparks kind of began to fly so we're giving a relationship a try. He still lives about an hour away from me so I still am kinda doing this all on my own.

    I can start TTC on November 5 when my 6 weeks recovery is up. I look forward to getting to know you guys!
