I thought I'd introduce myself. So far these seems like a really nice community . I decided to start TTC a few months ago. This is try number 4 and, at times, it's disheartening. I have BPD and it makes it difficult to handle the ups and downs, waiting, and unfortunate results. Anyway! A little about me; I'm 26 and live in Canada with my boyfriend. He has two kids (5 and 8), and they really like me. It's been an interesting relationship, but he's like my best friend. With all of my little flaws it makes it hard to find someone that can understand me, and he really does. I've been through several relationships (most 2-3 years long). It's always been my dream to have a family and settle down, that's why my boyfriend and I get along so well, because he already has kids. I decided that, with or without a partner, I want to TTC by the time I'm 30. I'm fortunate to be with someone who loves me and wants to help me achieve my goals. I hope to get to know some of you and hopefully not get too judged. I've already had a few people cut me down over my choices, and frankly, I'm sick of doing what other people tell me to do. I really wanna get to know some like minded ladies and get through the rough journey that's ahead of us together .
