I was walking the puppy and walked by this church. Apparently they really want everyone to know they have fertile church members. If having babies was contagious, I might join.
Anyway, I’ve been blogging for a year. Some of you have gone from ttc-ing to pregnant to having a baby within that year. Others haven’t but are varying degrees of close. Others are like me, and are still working on it, for a variety of reasons. I started a blog after reading a lot of other blogs. I had figured, that since I found these things such a great resource, maybe I should document my journey in hopes that it helps someone else.
All of our journeys are different, while I get a lot from many blogs, I feel that my own particular voice has a place here too. I try to be a blogger for the science nerd. I’m not very good about it, but I like to find peer reviewed articles and when in doubt, base my decisions on them (sadly there are too few about lesbians getting knocked up quickly without IVF). But I’m cheap and haven’t found myself in a RE’s office yet. But not cheap enough to use a known donor, as the potential legal issues would worry me (only donor sperm from a facility don’t count for paternity in my state).
I try to keep things interesting, but I don’t have good voice for that yet. This place has become more of a spot where I can leave my worries. It’s a spot where my wife can check it if she wants to know how I’m feeling but doesn’t want to have a whole discussion about it (sometimes you’re just curious).
Anyway, thank you to everyone who’s read me this last year. Hopefully by my blog’s second anniversary I’ll be able to show of baby pictures that aren’t from a nearby church. 🙂
