Update.... July 2010

Okay so I haven't been on here in a while an a lot of things have happened in the months that I was off. I didn't stop trying to get pregnant just was so busy with life that I didn't have time to update you guys. Well, I have so much to tell you, but this time around it may be a little different because I want to give you more information about the ups and downs of trying to get pregnant through insemination. All summer my friends have been coming to me asking me questions about my process and I've learned that it's a lot of information out there that us as women don't know. So all this week I've been thinking how to incorporate information into this blog along with my experiences, I'm still trying to figure that out. But, while I figure that out I decided that I would update you guys about what I've experienced all summer.


Okay so let's start with July 2010, remember how I was saying it would be so good if we had a known donor that would give us sperm? Well, we got him!!! We have this wonderful friend that has decided that it would be a wonderful gift to give us by being our donor. That not only helps us financially but also it gives us some peace of mind because using a sperm bank doesn't really allow you to know your donors personality (nor his mental state?!). So, now we have a "known sperm donor" and that brings a lot of other things to the table. We had to draw up a contract spelling out all the things that both parties wanted. Like, we wanted a donor that wouldn't want any parental involvement and he wanted to make sure he wouldn't have any financial involvement =)). I went on this website www.rocketlawyer.com looking for ideas on how to format such an agreement and to my surprise they had an agreement! All that we had to do was insert our names and information and then we went and had it notarized. Then he went to our doctor's office to "donate" sperm so we could have a sperm analysis and everything was great!

So, after we did all that paperwork it was too late to try for July but we wanted to practice, so he came over did his business and Michelle tried =)))... So I went to the doctors 7 days later to make sure that I ovulated for the month and I had.....


So no pregnancy for July so now we wait to try again in August....
