My partner and i are in Perth WA looking to start a family sometime soon.
New to the whole forum thing....
But thought we would join in as there doesnt seem to be much support in WA for homsexuals trying to start a family so we thought we would join..
so yeah thought we should introduce ourselves

Thanks for the support KCT
hers&hers we were pretty much up to start trying until we heard that the wait can be upwards of about 6 months unless we have a known donor .we were going to use a cryobank in America but the price is a lot so right now we have decided to keep saving and hopefully be able to use an American company next year .i hate that we have to wait but I know that when the time comes it will be worth it

Hi Naeda, sorry I havent checked this section much. I guess now I can say welcome to the waiting game. DP and I are also waiting to TTC our third beginning of next year. DP wants anon donor I would have loved donor so we going with anon since I will be carrying, the art of compromise.

Hi, my DP and I are in Perth too
We decided to TTC late last year, saw the fertility dr (at fertility north in joondalup) early in January 2012, then saw the counsellor, had bloods etc.
We also choose a donor from America (ordered 10 viles so each of us can have 3 try's each) we want all of our children to be biologically related and we both want to be birth mums so it was cheaper to buy in bulk. (still very expensive tho!!!!)
The 6 month wait is killer! (and not fair IMO) but it is nearly august 11th which is our cut off date and tomorrow I start the tracking cycle so its all starting to feel real now.
I hope the wait for you goes quick!!!

Me and my partner are also in Perth and we have a little boy who is five months next week. We conceived doing self insemination on the second try with a known but completely uninvolved donor.
The journey is a rollercoaster but worth every up and down!

It's crazy how long the process has to take .he had a set back with money and now are re thinking when we would like to start trying .its hard, especially because a friend of mine just fell pregnant and wasn't trying at all .some times I wish we could just have that worry .
