Hoping for a little one...with a little help from DI

I'm 34, single and have made the decision to have a baby with donor sperm.

I'm about to start my first round of unmediated iui this month and it feels like quite a journey getting to this point!!

I've wanted a baby since my early twenties but after coming out of a serious but unhealthy relationship I haven't had a serious relationship since.

When I turned 31 I started to think about using donor sperm but gave myself another year to go out and really meet someone. I tried and did meet someone in the end and then realised I was weighing up compromising and thinking of settling with someone I wasn't completely happy with just so I could have a baby.

Roll on a few years and the journey feels real now as its about to start. Feeling rather silly as I do hope I might conceive first time but reading on MN I know it's not that common.

Anyhow I thought I would use this blog to cover some of the main issues I've thought about or discussed with people as it may help other people on this journey xxxxxxxx
