New here- Here I go! — The Bump

New here- Here I go!

So glad to have found a place to talk- our story is a bit of a convoluted one. Met my partner later than I thought I would, which is okay because I'm so thankful I met him at all. I'm 33, hes 50 this year. Has a ~ten year old vasectomy, met with our doc, IVF was the best option for us. Mapping out when our start date is now, it will probably be the end of March or mid-April(we both travel a lot for work). Excited and nervous are probably the best words to describe how I feel....never thought I would even get the chance to be a mama, and now I do.
Thanks for all the great advice ladies, looking forward to all the next steps!


Re: New here- Here I go!

  • Hi @arp232 Welcome! I'm in my 30s and my husband is nearly 50 as well. Good luck with IVF and I hope you post here in a March or April IVF thread when that time comes because the ladies here are awesome! 
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.
