Hi! Imma assume for the time being that this is safe space and I can use my casual, reclaiming unsafe in public language.
So I’m a femme queer with cis lady bits. I have wanted to be a mama forever, target age 22…started trying when I was 24 with an ex wife and it didn’t work before the divorce.
Cue to now… I have money stuff on lockdown…or at least on lockdown enough that I can try. I’m 34 almost 35, and I am going to start trying soon. The finances are scary because I’m single.
I’m going to try for a known donor or sex with a known donor(oddly called natural insemination in sperm land). This should save me a few thousand, but will still have some costs. It also means that if the donor chooses, they could ask for parental rights. I think potential donor could be a risk for changing his mind and wanting to be a parent. But in his case I’m okay with that. But if he changes his mind and I use a more distant known donor… I will be crushed if they try to change their mind.
Anyone else on here trying to make babies? Or been through the process?
