Trying again

Since things are turning out to not be so easy for me I decided to start a blog about our efforts.

See, I'm trying to have a baby. Nothing new in these days. I feel like everytime I turn around someone is pregnant, and anyone with a computer and internet can see the amount of lesbian message boards out there full of woman trying to get pregnant.

My partner and I have been together for almost 13 years. We've talked so many times over the years about starting a family but there was always something getting in the way. Money, change of career, moving, etc. Before I knew it I wasn't 28 I was 38 and I actually came to the conclusion and made peace with the fact that it wasn't going to happen for us. That it would be just the two of us. Then to my surprise this past May K came to me and said she wanted a baby. So, we decided we were officially in trying mode, and it was going to be now or never.

We did all the research, found a doctor, found a cryobank, talked to friends that have been through this process. We were prepared. It was coming together wonderfully. So much better then any other time we ever thought about starting this process. But never in a million years did I think I would have something wrong with me. As it turned out there was. At my first appointment with my RE a huge cyst on my right ovary was found and had to have surgery. During surgery they found out I also have 1 blocked tube and a large amount of endometreosis that could come back at any moment.

Despite the challenges we started trying. Try #1 ended in a BFN but it felt good to be officially trying.

I start my fertility drugs today and we should have Try #2 on New Year's Eve. I feel very good about this and keeping positive thoughts.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my page and your wonderful words. Best of luck to ya with your TTC process. I hope that you ladies are very lucky and get a BFP VERY VERY SOON!!!

  2. Hi there!
    My partner and I are in the tww of our 2nd try. We should know on New Year's Eve. I have had fertility issues in the past (endo, cysts, the works) so we are trying to be realistic that it might not happen immediately. Still, it is difficult. Good luck to you two - I'll keep up with your journey.


  3. Thanks for your comment. Welcome to the TTC club! Trying to have a baby without having all the needed ingredients lying about the house is hard enough but to add fertility challenges to the mix increases the level of difficulty two-fold. I am so hopeful that you will get your BFP soon.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my little blog. Welcome to the blogosphere and the TTC world!
    Best wishes for a fab NYEve spermination!
