I love the postal system!

Yay! We got two of the books I ordered from Amazon (I know, I know I should shop locally but I tried the library and five local bookstores and couldn't find these two). Ordering both may sound somewhat redundant, but I imagine there's probably at least one thing in each that isn't in the other and I'm reading everything relevant that I can get my hands on. The Essential Guide to Lesbian Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth is a book I saw a long time ago in the local Pride store and so I already had it in mind. When I couldn't find it in the local stores I went to Amazon and also found The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy for Lesbians. I'm going to immerse myself in the wonderful world of zygotes and cervical mucus now, but I'd love to hear your opinion on these books if you've read them.

I've read the first one and it's decent. It's geared (IMO) more towards people using KDs. But there are helpful tips in there (not about the insemination itself, oddly) as well as legal info.
I read it many times.
Also... another one. I am blanking out on the name. Donor insemination for lesbians or something bizarre like that.
Taking Charge of Your Fertility is far better than either one for the actual getting pg part though.

Thanks! I think I've seen the "donor insemination for lesbians" one online before, but I haven't looked at it, so I will. The "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" I hadn't heard of, so thanks for the reccommendation!
