So today I ordered my first sperm specimen. It's a very strange phone call... just picking a guy out of a catalog and then ordering sperm over the phone. It's supposed to ship out on Saturday and arrive to my condo on Monday... just imagine what the people in the recieving room in my condo building would think if they knew what was in that package!!! It'll be good until the next Saturday, so hopefully my IUI will be next week. I just hope it's not Monday! It's so hard to time all this out. I didn't want to get the sperm too late and miss my ovulation time, but I didn't want to get the sperm too early and have it expire before my IUI! Let's just pray that we got the timing right!

we're going the donor sperm route as well and its been extremely weird to pick a donor. my fiance wont do it with me he feels too weird so its me and my bestfriend who had to pick.

Ours is sent directly to the fertility centre though.

lots of luck.

I can see how that make feel a bit strange the first time around. I'm surprised to hear they deliver it to you rather than the clinic - that would be a bit of a surprise to the delivery guy for sure!

I hope you have the timing down and you get your sticky BFP this time around! Good luck!

That would seem a bit "odd" to me too but hey we gotta do what we gotta do to get our baby right?! I wish you well and hope the timing is just perfect for you guys!

I could not imagine going through that!

I just watched a movie over the weekend that is kind of related to that.

You all have to go rent it!! Its a weird movie and not the best, but it is interesting to say the least. But I think all you ladies could relate to it in a way - not the ending though - so keep that in mind!

Its called LOVERBOY - with Kiera Sedwig (think I spelt that wrong - she is in the Closer and married to Kevin Bacon)

Thanks! Yeah, my clinic said that I get the sample delivered to me and then I bring it on the day of the IUI. It seems strange, but I guess that's just what they do. I'm still nervous about the timing of it though. My mom will be coming in next week to visit so she'll be around for the IUI... DH will have moved to MN by then, so he won't be able to come with me anymore.

Oh Eva, i pray this works for you!
I had no idea you where going down the donor sperm route just yet.
I am glad it works for so many people and that your DH is ok with it.
My DB has always said NO to anything like that. I don't know what i would do if his probs got
any worse Here is praying that they dont.

Best of luck and i hope the timing is all worked out well

Waiting for god to bless me with my 1st child when the time is right.
