Long introduction, short: we tried for a year to get pregnant (wasted time seeing regular doctors and not fertility doctors), before we found out that he is sterile. So, we bought 5 vials of sperm, did 3 rounds of unmedicated IUI, and two medicated. The 5th round took and we're due in January. If it hadn't we were going to move onto donated embryos (I was a donor before, didn't want to go through the cost and pain of IVF, and we were using half donor anyway...).
Anyway, I was going over the birth certificate worksheet and on the father's side they ask if he's the biological father. And if not, who is? They don't ask this on the mother's side. I was an ovum donor in my 20's, and with our recent purchase of donated sperm, I can tell you that all legal parental rights of the donor have been waived. I'm confused by this question. Do they really want to know if the baby is biologically his, or if he is legally responsible for the child? The question is right below them asking if he is from Mexico or South America, so does it have to do with immigration or child support? It just annoys me. What if we had gone with the donated embryo and neither one of us would have been biological parents? I'm somewhat offended at this question. Really, the language needs to be updated to be in line with the technology. Do any of you have experience with this?
