I always find that the best way to start off a new blog is to give some information about myself. So, here goes...
I am 40 years old, with a beautiful 5.5 month old daughter, Little G, who was born on December 23, 2010. I live in a major city centre in Canada and am a huge sports fan. I met my husband H 11 years ago, we will be married for 5 years in October. We started trying to have a baby at the end of 2006 and got pregnant through fertility treatments in April of 2011.
Infertility is a kick in the teeth and does not disappear as soon as you have a baby. I am still dealing with the mindfuck of it all. (Oh and I have a potty mouth) We want to have another child, but will have to go through fertility treatments again and there are no guarantees it will work for us a second time. See, still infertile. Oh, and if you are happening upon this blog and are not from the IF world, please no platitudes, no "it's God's plan" or "just relax". I know you may be trying to make me feel better, but that's all a load of horse shit. (again with the potty mouth)
Little G has been an easy baby so far, she has slept through the night since about 2 months old and generally has a pleasant disposition. She has been making strange lately which I really hope is a short phase and is currently cutting her first tooth (maybe two). I love being her Mom and am thankful for her every day.
