Hi everyone, first post on this forum, so please excuse me if this has been brought up before. My partner and I have been together for over 6 years. Both in our 20's and recently engaged we were ready for the next step, to become a family.
After a lot of research we registered on a worldwide Sperm Donation site which cost £9.99 a month and it included Australia. After 3 days off our profile being active we had a reply for a donor from the Gold Coast. We didn't get excited was only early days anyway we created a fake Facebook account and got chatting to the donor. We could spend hours asking him lots of questions and vice versa, once we felt comfortable we went through the various tests etc and decided we would use him as our donor. We never once discussed personal addresses, but to both parties surprise we lived in the same suburb. So from a worldwide website we not only found someone I the Gold Coast region, we lived in the same area!!
To cut a long story short, first attempt EVER in ours lives with a syringe and sperm, I can proudly say that my finance is 10weeks 6 days today, this whole journey and process is a miracle right from the beginning, I am writing a journal for our baby so he/she knows everything we have done to make this possible!!, even though it's still early days we can't wait to hit the 12week mark and let our friends know!! We have heard our babys strong heartbeat and it is a day we will never forget.
Please feel free to ask me any questions at all, I know we are very blessed to conceive first hit and it's a miracle but miracles do happen and we started right from the beginning with no help just research research research.
