Hi there! Welcome to the very first post about our journey to motherhood. We thought we would start off by giving some information about us. We are two women in the pursuit of becoming mommies! Trying to conceive = TTC! In April 2017, we decided enough was enough and got married on the gulf coast of Florida at sunset, just the two of us. We were former co-workers and best friends who fell madly in love and the rest is history. Both of us have strong desires to become mothers! Once we returned home after our honeymoon and elopement, we met with a doctor regarding our options to become mothers. Essentially, he informed us that it was up to us on when we would like to get the process started. We decided right away. There is absolutely no telling how long it may take to create our first life. For those of you who are wondering, we do have a plan. Ideally, each of us would like to carry one child through Intrauterine Insemination (or IUI.) Then, our two kids would be related to each other through the donor. However, we are fully aware that in the world of infertility, these things may not always go as planned. On Sunday, May 28th, 2017 we attempted our first IUI. We are currently in the dreaded two week wait. We are both happy, excited and nervous about what the future holds.
Thank you for taking a minute to read over our introduction! It is our hope to connect with the TTC community, share our experience, and learn about the joys of motherhood all at the same time.
