Your/DH's Names & Ages? me: Abbey, 26 DH:Casey, 29

Birthdays? March 18th and July 3rd

Anniversary? July 30th

Any Children/Furbabies, if so what are their names/ages? Nope. I want some chickens so bad but DH thinks they would be a pain! If I knew we would be living somewhere with a yard indefinitely, I'd be trying harder to talk him into it, but we may have to move when our lease is up, so we'll see . . .

How Long TTC? With hubby, for 3 years (since we got married) and now we are in our 5th cycle with a known donor.

What methods are you using to get BFP? So far, low-tech with a known donor (he ships it, we do vaginal insemination at home with a needleless syringe) but I have an appt coming up at an infertility clinic so possibly something else soon.

Anything else you would like to tell us? If it looks like getting pregnant is going to take more than IUI's, I think we'll head straight for adoption. Although I have no idea where to even start with that yet! Oh well, I'll learn, just like I had to learn about TTC with donor sperm, right?

Your/DH's Names & Ages? Juli & Jeremy

Birthdays? 9/4 and 12/6

Anniversary? 10/4

Any Children/Furbabies, if so what are their names/ages? No

How Long TTC? 10 months

What methods are you using to get BFP? We were just TTC naturally (with digital fertility monitor and temping for the most part) until this month when I started Clomid. DH happened to do his SA 2 days after my last pill, and we found out he has zero sperm - so I am stopping the Clomid for now. I don't know what methods we'll be using or what's even available for people with our condition - I am just hoping that something is.

Anything else you would like to tell us? I am glad I found this board.
