I've decided to start this blog because I can't tell you how many people have told me that I need to share my story... most people (including my medical doctor and my naturopathic doctor... possibly the only time they will agree...) have suggested a book, one friend said skip the book and go straight to the movie starring Cameron Diaz. Well, we'll see about all that... in the meantime I thought I would start with a blog to share my journey with anyone who is interested.
I am a 45 year old woman and I'm 32 weeks pregnant with my first child! I'm very excited about it and the reason people want me to share my journey is that I am a single mom by choice! This is my journey, not our journey and I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be here! Just to be clear right off the bat... I am not 'single' by choice, but given that I am single I decided to choose motherhood with the hopes that one day a wonderful man will join me on this journey. If I waited much longer I may have missed the opportunity to have a child that was genetically related to me... as it was it took almost two years to get pregnant!
|Introducing Baby Cass to a very excited Momma Cass!|
One of the reasons my medical doctor and naturopathic doctor thought I should write about it is that I informed myself about the process... and what I needed to do to increase my chances e.g. if you drink more than 4 or 5 alcoholic drinks a week you decrease your chances of getting pregnant by 50%! Yikes... there goes my wine! My thoughts for this blog are to share some of my experiences, some of what I learned and perhaps write a story that eventually I will at the very least share with my little one... the story of their birth! I would be happy to hear your thoughts on the things I write if you have something to say...
Thanks for reading... Momma Cass
Oh and I was skyping with my lawyer tonight who told me that I should add...
