Why a blog?

I feel like I have so much to say. I feel different, and I feel like it should be evident that I'm different. We are doing this huge, big thing. Can't you tell just by looking at me? But people can't tell, and I'm not supposed to tell too many people. I can say that we are trying, or soon we'll be trying, but not go into too much detail. Because what if I don't get pregnant? What if it takes more than a year? Do I really want people asking me about it all of the time? So who do I talk to? I certainly have people to talk to. My partner, of course. And some friends. But I've got a lot to say, and it's on my mind all of the time, and we don't even start doing this for real until June. So I need somewhere to process my thoughts, to keep track of them so that I don't lose them. To get them out of me so that they stop running around my head. And I could do that with a personal journal, but this way, if people want to know, they can know what I'm thinking. The few friends I choose to share this with can check in as often as they want, or not at all. But at least it's off my mind.

hey, just stumbled across your blog so thought I'd say hi!

My wife and myself are starting to ttc this month, so it's interesting hearing about other couples heading down the same path.

Anyway, good luck with your journey and check out our blog if you have a few minutes :)

Just found your blog. Welcome to our blogosphere community! My partner and I had our first IUI on Tuesday and are now officially in the two week wait. We too started planning months in advance. Good luck to you!

Just found your blog. TTC is quite a journey. Glad you are learning to like tea. I think tea makes everything better for just a minute :-) Best of luck, ladies!

Welcome to blogging. I found you through B and J's blog (Just a Pair of Moms in Training). My partner and I have a one year old boy and are planning to start ttc #2 later this year. Looking forward to reading about your ttc journey and hoping it's short and sweet so I can start reading about your pregnancy journey! :)

Thank you for your blog. My partner and I are in an interracial lesbian relationship. I see so much of our experience in your blog. We won't be TTC for over a year, but I think it's never too early to begin researching.

Again, thank you!

Best of luck!
