Waiting to ttc

My readers really keep me going on this quest...I am taking the advice of reading through a donor agreement with PKD. Hopefully if anything feels uncomfortable for him he will discuss it with me.

If all goes well, I will start ttc in March! It seems ages away, but I have to wait. I need to pay off two big bills (and I'm taking an extra teaching gig to do it). Plus I need to be just slightly practical because I have a huge career event next September, in the works for 3 years, for which my organizing skills are essential...so I can't really be on leave for that....Anyway, March, March March! The month of my 38th birthday. Gosh. Maybe I'll move it up to February!

And...I've decided to try home inseminations first. I'm not sure how many months to give myself but probably 3 to 6 before I turn to IUI. Anyone have any stories of success from home insems? Wouldn't it be a dream to keep it simple?

Babies babies babies. They are in my dreams. Two this week. Except in one of the dreams, the baby wasn't mine and for some reason it was a melancholy dream. In the other one, she was mine...and it was joyous.

Wow, how exciting! March is somewhat far, but is ever so close, next thing you know it's March already! Or February if you decide to bring it forward :-).

Very exciting that you are making plans to move forward!

I don't know about home inseminations...never tried any myself...but I HAVE heard several success stories.

Can't wait to read what happens next.

I am so excited for you that you are moving forward! I bet it is such great peace of mind to know that you WILL be a Mommy and it isnt too far away! And for the most part it is in your control instead of having to wait to meet someone, date for awhile, hope it works out enough to get to that point, etc. So happy for you!
