Hi there,

Welcome to my blog! I’m 32 and have recently started trying for a baby with my partner. We’ve been together for over 16 years and last year we finally made the decision to stop ignoring the maternal urges I’ve felt for some time and try out this thing called parenting which appears to be all the rage, judging from my Facebook feed!

I’m starting to write this a few months into our journey as it’s been much harder than I ever expected and thought this would be a good way to share my thoughts and feelings. Think of it as a diary and, with this is in mind, excuse me the fact that for now at least, it will be remaining anonymous.

Sooner or later I hope this will turn into a pregnancy and then a parenting blog but for now it remains a place for me to vent my feelings on trying to conceive which is, apparently, an emotional rollercoaster!

Wish us luck!
