Can anyone lend me a turkey baster?

As you know, we spent a good portion of 2011 trying to knock the wife up. We did a month of cycle monitoring, which included a whole whack of nasty tests (blood tests, ultrasounds and a hysterosalpingogram – not written tests, although we were asked to name the last 8 Prime Ministers in reverse order). That was followed up by 5 IUI cycles (each with a whole whack of nasty hormones, blood tests, ultrasounds and questions about international tax law). So almost a year after we began the process, the kittens are still only siblings.

In the group of same sex couples at our clinic, only three have gotten pregnant (one had the baby a couple of years ago, one is having the baby soon, and the last just became pregnant). Two of those pregnancies were done at home without clinical assistance. Consequently, the wife and I are going to give it a try at home.

And because we’re doing it at home, we decided to use American sperm. The donor is an engineer with a very high SAT score who also models (he looks like Benjamin Bratt) so both the wife and I are happy.

As per usual, we’ll keep you posted. I must go off and get some target practice now.
