After being a member of this board for almost one year I just wanted to tell you all that DH and & I are hopefully about to do our first insemination with donor sperm at the end of this week! I'm starting to get excited because this may be the first time I really have a good shot at becoming pregnant!

DH had a vas reversal in 2001, but his count and motility have remained very low. All the tests I've had so far show that I'm "normal", whatever that means. We've already done at least 8 insems using his sperm but I've never really allowed myself to get too hopeful since they didn't seem very likely to work. We both agreed we didn't want to go the IVF route, and DH was pretty uncertain about trying DI, although it seems like a very humane and natural solution to me. I have to confess he's still not thrilled, but he's willing to give it a shot - what a guy! I hope it works because if not I think I'll be at the end of the TTC road. I'm 37 and I just can't take any more. I want to move on with my life.

I'm spending this morning trying to get all the paperwork together - it's been a flurry of phone calls, faxes, etc. My insurance company is making us jump through hoops although I thought I had everything already approved. (I'm self-employed and this insurance plan costs so much I'm not even sure it's worth it!) We're going to use New England Cryogenics and am still waiting to hear from my doc whether she thinks we should use ICI or IUI prepared sperm. I'm not on any meds and so am praying I surge on Thursday so I can have the insem done on a weekday, otherwise the doc will have to come in on a weekend. I'm usually pretty regular. Yikes!

Please keep your fingers crossed for me that I'm approved in time for the insem, that our chosen donor has "boys" in storage, that I surge on Thursday, that the tank arrives OK, and that this whole darned thing actually WORKS!!!!!!!!
