  • Same sex parents or parents to be chat!

    Was discussing there should be a forum for same sex parents or parents to be. A place where people can post about their bubbas, ask for advice, keep us updated on their pregnancies etc. All are welcome! Photos are lovely too!

    I'll start with my story. DP and I have been together for four years. We went through QFG's southbank branch Eve Health and did 4 iuis using donor sperm and 1 ivf that gave us our BFP.

    We now have a 11 week old DD and were taking her on a holiday tomorrow to meet her extended family.

      Hi Ladies,
      We started out last year with two unsuccessful IUI attempts. This year we had a round of IVF which resulted in one fresh transfer and a whole bunch of little frozen day 5 Embryos. The fresh transfer didn't stick but a frozen transfer is still happily kicking away. I'm currently 14 weeks pregnant and SLOWLY coming out of the haze of all day sickness as I've re-named it.

        Are you ladies finding out the gender? Any ideas? What's your mummy feelings? DP and I were sure that we were having a boy but we were blessed with DD.

          Hi ladies! I'm currently 23 weeks with a little boy from our first frozen transfer. Did 4 IUIs before the IVF.
          Natta the all day sickness is terrible! Glad you are feeling better hope it all disappears soon. I still have to eat before getting up, have a toaster beside the bed!!
          i thought we were having a girl but was wrong! Starting to shop for things now but so indecisive!

            Congrats Flower! A little boy, how incredible.

            How are you and DP finding the 'naming game'? DP and I can pick boys names we love in a flash but took so long to come to a girls name. We were so sure DD was going to be a boy that we were actually shocked at our morph scan!

              Hi everyone. I have been with my partner for 9 years. We decided on at home insemination with a known donor which resulted in our baby boy who is 7 weeks old. All going really well. We are in SA so had a few issues getting my DP on birth certificate but is all sorted now.

                We are very lucky to be in QLD because DP went under 'parent' and all was done. Then DD's birth certificate came and we were both listed. Something very special about it.

                  Really? I guess that's because you had to prove it was a home insemination? We got our birth certificate in the NT which is pretty much the same laws as SA I think, didn't have much trouble but we went through an IVF clinic so had the official paperwork. Well, a couple of staff at the registry were a bit homophobic, but we got what we wanted.

                  Second one was in VIC, you'd think that was easier, but no, even though they took months to go through it with a fine toothcomb and demanded extra documentation, the birth certificate still arrived leaving our first child (by my partner) off. It's always a "clerical error", isn't it. Still haven't got the correct certificate, kid is 5mo.

                    Hey all,

                    My partner and I have been together 5 years and I am currently pregnant from our first attempt at egg-sharing. We're very blessed and grateful it worked for us the first go as it would have been our only attempt to conceive this way. My DP did a cycle of IVF and we managed to have one lucky blastocyst to be able to freeze until it was the right time in my cycle to have the transfer. Which now brings us to 8.5 weeks along.

                    We're from Sydney... And thankful for the virtual world, as we're yet to meet other same sex couples in person who have or are planning to have families.

                      Hi my partner and I have been together almost 7 years and we have two boys 2yo and 4mo.

                      We used Qfg on the Gold Coast, both our boys have the same U.S. Donor and I'm the biomum to both. Our first was conceived on our third iui attempt and our second born on the second attempt. We are very blessed to have had a short and easy journey.

                        Hi everyone,

                        This thread is a great idea. I don't know if you have already seen that there is a thread for same sex couples who are currently TTC as well?

                        My partner and I live in WA, have been together four years, are engaged, and started TTC in February. It's not gone to plan yet but we are staying positive. Currently in the tww 😊

                          Hi TandR! My fiancé and I are from Perth and planning on egg sharing for our first, next year. Extremely nervous and would love to chat about how it all went.. Laws in wa consider egg sharing surrogacy so we have to come to Sydney for it all which adds a little more stress but it will all be worth it! Glad to see we aren't alone in the scary IVF world!

                            Hey! Yes it's hard when all of the laws recognise it differently. We had a really good experience with our clinic conceiving this way. Our clinic stood out to us for various reasons... But it really depends on what you want from a clinic and what kind of donor you are looking to use (international vs Australian).

                            I'm happy to send you our clinic details of you want to direct message me.

                            We are currently half way through our pregnancy! It's still such an amazing miracle that my partner's one and only embryo is now our kicking and active Bub inside me. Such a blessing.

                            Let me know if I can help with any q's!

                              Hi guys myself and DP have been together for 5 years, we are from WA but living in Singapore at the moment, we initially wanted to do the IVF treatment in WA but since we want to egg-share it isn't possible, it also is illegal in Singapore so we are going to a clinic in BKK. We will be hopefully be getting the ball rolling in March. It is good to see there are a few more couples from WA going through the same process. We will eventually be moving back to WA, I will also give birth in WA so both our names will be on the birth cert.
