Sigh. What a stressful venture, eh? I don’t think relaxation is required for conceiving, thankfully, or so many humans wouldn’t be here! Hopefully attempt #2 will be easier and smoother this month for you guys.

My donor was notoriously late for insems. Each month, he’d promise he’d come at X time, and show up 3 hours later or worse. It really, really bothered me. He didn’t suggest days later, but his tardiness added stress to an already stressful situation! I feel you.

Feel better soon!

Do you all use ovulation kits at all? Temps are only helpful in retrospect, so maybe that would add an additional sense of security?
And SO sorry your donor is less than awesome about showing up. Its so hard for folks to understand just how tiny the slice of time is for getting a good insemination!

I hope the next one goes well and you can forget the stress with a BFP soon.

Us too. I’m starting to think there’s something wrong.

We use the dip tests and then if we see lines appear, we use clear blue tests to confirm.

Our donor is lovely, really. I think he’s just a bit dim when it comes to a woman’s cycle.

I’m not convinced that it’s possible for any of this to be as stress-free as it should be. Fingers crossed for you!

lesbemums says:

Thank you. X

I don’t think it’s possible for planned inseminations to ever be stressless.

lesbemums says:

I’m beginning to think that now. Lol.

Bless you both. We are glad to have found another UK couple doing home insemination too!.
It is hard to relax when you are under pressure to get the job done without losing any of the little swimmers!. Keeping our fingers crossed for you. Looking forward to following your journey as you progress. x
