Preparations, preparations, preparations
We've been making preparations for months now:
- finding someone who wanted to father a child
- getting to know each other and our hopes for what this could bring
- drawing up a co-parenting agreement
- monitoring baseline temperatures
- monitoring ovulation
Our father-to-be (who we'll call Travolta) delivered the sperm as arranged. The words "embarrassing" and "awkward" barely describe our attempts at smalltalk! Then we were left to get down to it - making love with a syringe of semen is a whole new experience. Kinda scary but lovely too.
And now it's fingers crossed (and legs crossed). Will have another go tomorrow, then wait two weeks and hope!
