Funny way to start a thread huh? Let me introduce myself. My name is Leah and I am 33 and ttc #1. I have wanted to be a mommy for as long as I can remember. I fell in love with the idea of being pregnant when they put a pillow under my shirt while playing Mary in the church Christmas pagent and I did my 6th grade science project on fetal development from conception to birth. About 2 years ago I had brain surgery....twice. The recovery was long and hard. I had to learn to read and walk all over again. On top of that, I learned that pregnancy was very unsafe and delivery could even be life threatening. I was devastadted until my DP of 11 years offered to carry our child for me. She had never really WANTED to carry and the offer was out of the blue. I lovingly now call her my "spare uterus"
She will be the gestational part of my journey to motherhood. She pees on anything I ask her to, she has given up her morning coffee and lays with her bum in the air for a half hour after every insemination. I research and educate. I arrange. I am "the master of puppets" if you will.... I feel very lonely though. I'm just wondering if there are any other mommies out there ttc with parts other than their own. Surrogacy, other lesbian moms.....it doesn't matter. I would just love to know that there are others out there.
Finally a place to call our own....see we do belong somewhere. Perhaps there are more Conception Guru's out there who could join us!
We cant be the only 2 right? Speaking of being a conception guru.....fertility friend is playing with my emotions. We got pos OPK for 2 days about 4 days ago. Still have no confirmed O. My poor partner. I asked her what her CM was like yesterday and she said with all of the preseed and baby batter we keep putting up there, I'm pretty sure It's nothing but that. I guess we'll just keep inseminating until it is a done deal. Maybe I can find books on delayed ovulation on my kindle to go with my "conception collection"
Welcome Mummy Pony! I agree. I can't even figure out if our wait has begun! What sort of things do you do to pass the wait? I've heard people say anything from reading to just not thinking about it and I think that is rubbish. I get the FEVER! LOL! I have a wishlist on Amazon of all of the things I want to buy. I shop online to add to the collection. I study charts on Fertility friend and play a twisted game of "she loves me/she loves me not" with the ones ending in pregnancy vs the ones ending in AF. I harass my DP and ask if her boobs hurt and what her CM is like. I become a mad woman obsessed. (In a totally healthy way) HAHAHA!
Just wanted to wish you the best of luck in your journey to mommy hood! I remember there was a lovely lady in the forum when I was pregnant who was the "pregnant" prt of a lesbian couple having their first baby and that was the first time I had considered surrogacy, that's something I am looking into, I'd love to be able to help a loving couple have a child! I just have to get my husband on board now! Lol
