No really, I don't want to do that... ever...

I am a 31 year old woman and newly married. I have a kick ass husband who also came with a kick ass stepson that I love to death and with whom I have a great relationship. I have no desire to have a bio-kid, especially now that I have a step son. I have had many comments from people about how I am going to change my mind about not wanting more kids, a lot of “Uh huh…” comments with ‘knowing’ smug smiles, sort of like when a 6 year old boy says that he will never ever kiss a girl, eww that is gross. Are they likely right, or are they being assholes? How do I deal with this? [more inside]

Sperm from the Upper Midwest?

My partner and I have decided to get knocked up via donor sperm. We are a queer couple and my partner is unable to get me pregnant. I'm still figuring out how this all works, but one thing I know is that I need sperm. Is there a good/reliable sperm bank in the upper midwest that you can recommend? I know that sperm can be shipped from the far far away lands of the coastal United States, but somehow I feel better if it doesn't have to travel so far -- it will be much more affordable as well.

Transgender people and pregnancy, babies, kids?

My partner and I are a lesbian couple. One half of our happy couple is pregnant with our first child, the other half is a transsexual woman, and because of that we have been able to conceive a child that is genetically related to both of us. We know one other couple in the world who has dealt with these issues. Is anyone else out there? [more inside]
