DI & Single?

I read through some posts, but really couldn't find anyone who was doing donor insemination as a single woman. I saw a lot of information about donor eggs, but that really doesn't fit with my situation at all.
Are there any DI folks out there who have decided to be Moms on their own? Maybe because I live in Nebraska, I don't know anyone else who is doing this, and it would be nice to meet some other folks who are.
Some background, I am on my second attempt. I need to test to see if I am pregnant on Sunday. I feel tired, but that seems to be due to the hormonal support. It is hard to say. In some ways I think it is a little cruel, that the hormones mimic "feeling" pregnant, but I have to resist the temptation to interpret those feelings as anything but the result of the hormones.
I am trying to be optimistic and at the same time, realistic. The doctor thought it would take about 2 or 3 attempts before we were successful. I figure I only need to worry after the third time.
Hoping to meet other women in the same situation if you are out there on the board somewhere...
