The beginning of Baby Mamas Drama

So the little lady and I want to have a baby.  The little lady is my wife.  We have been together for almost 9 years now and have been married for two years (not legally, you know how it is).  This is something that we have been dreaming about and thinking about for a long time and I think that we are ready to start working towards that.  So this blog will be a chronicle of sorts about our journey.  Both of us will be blogging about it.

Now I’ve been reading other trying to conceive blogs for a while now and I think that sometimes they can be a bit confusing.  There are so many abbreviations to know, like TTC is for trying to conceive and so many medical procedures and it can be mind blowing.  So I will attempt to clear up the process as best I can with my limited knowledge.  Our roommate the other day put it best, “By time you guys get done with this you will practically be doctors.”

So one of our first steps has been to pay off our credit card debit.  I can’t take much of the credit for this, most of the hard work has been done by the little lady.  Also with the help of her mother.  So now we are within about 3 months from being debit free- at least in the way of credit cards.  Our more exciting steps towards having a baby have been trying to pick out a sperm donor.  Now, we have decided to go through a sperm bank and not do a known donor, even thought that would be cheaper.  Legally it is just easier and makes the most sense to us.  There is so much to decide and pick from that the choice of who to pick can be a bit overwhelming.  Just picking which company can be a hard decision.  I’ll talk more about this later.

We are on our way to being baby mamas, and knowing us, there will probably be some funny drama along the way.  It’s going to be a wild ride.
