just wondering if there are any other lesbian couples on here who are trying for a baby soon. My wife and I only recently got married, but I turn 35 in 6 weeks so even though I still feel 25, we aren’t waiting around to start a family.
We found our donor through prideangel.com and we are ecstatic! He’s perfect- local, kind, attractive, the colouring and ancestry we want, and… free. Yay!
I have been charting my cycles forever, but now I’m focused on the fertility signs- even bought some OPKs to confirm my CM checks. We will try our first round of home insemination in November (two months- OMG!)
I just finished reading the New Essential Guide to Lesbian Conception, Pregnancy and Birth. Whoa, lots of information in there.
so anyway, saying hello!

we are starting to try this fall as well… getting SO excited and a bit nervous!
we are going through a bank though and will be using a midwife – it was a long decision, but i think the right one for us.
how fabulous that you were able to find your donor through that site – so great!
i wish you all the luck and a fast and easy journey!

Eep, I’m SUPER sorry if this sounds ignorant or discriminatory in any way..
But how do lesbian couples decide who carries a baby? Are you guys going to take turns if you more children?

Squee! So exciting! My ex-girlfriend adopted a baby girl earlier this year (although she’s going the single-parent route at the moment) and other than DH she was the only person I’d ever been with who I could have seen myself as a co-parent with. (We didn’t last very long but she is amazing and still a good friend.)
I wish you all the luck in the world and hope parenthood brings you many joys. 😀

CFC here, but I applaud you and your wife for making an informed, well-thought-out decision to TTC. It sounds like your baby will be welcomed into a loving home. Best of luck to you!

@MissKabers: good luck to you! stay in touch if you want!
@futuremrsk18: not ignorant at all. i can only speak for us really, but I think it’s a natural decision- one wanting the experience more than the other, or deciding to “take turns” I suppose. my wife has no desire to carry, so for us it wasn’t even a “decision”
@SpecialSundae: that’s great you are still friends with your ex! sorry I didn’t spend the time investigating… are you now married to a man? I left my common-law husband for my (now) wife, and I’m nervous to tell him if I do get pregnant. We are still connected since we own a home together (oh real estate). Happy for her!
@Miss Mauverick: thank you, yes we are! 🙂 um, but what’s CFC?

@mtnhoney: Sorry, CFC is Child Free by Choice. I love kids (worked in daycare for 4+ years, then was a nanny for 3 years), but I have never wanted my own. But, I appreciate when couples take the time to make an informed, sincere decision together about having/not having kids.
I wish you and your wife a calm pregnancy, an easy birth, and a healthy baby.

@mtnhoney: I don’t blame her. If I could get my FI to do it, I would! LOL 🙂 Congrats and good luck!!
