Hey guys! Well i have been on this site for a few years and this is my 1st time posting in a post that is baby related or has anything to do with concieving. Well i am about to turn 32 and the proud mommy of a 7 year old boy (who i have to pick up from school in a sec), and i am also happy to say that i am planning on TTC by the end of 2014. So i have a year to plan, get healthy, and figure out if i want to change my mind by that time or not lol. I have been wanting another baby for a few years now. My ex husband and i had planned on getting pregnant again when my son turned 3, but that was the same year that we split. So needless to say, it did not quite work out that way. Anyway, i am getting older and i have decided that i want a baby more than i want a wedding since i only have a few years left to reproduce. I can't force someone to marry me, but i can control when i choose to get pregnant. Since my 1st pregnancy was very unplanned and i was so young, i am happy that i can actually take charge and plan this one out and be more prepared. I looking forward to becoming pregnant again after 8 years and also looking forward to this new journey and preparing :)

Hi Melissa, i apologize for taking so long to reply. I have posted so many posts on here that i can't keep up lol. Today i actually have the time to go through my posts and follow up. I am not currently seeing anyone unfortunately. My job makes it kind of impossible to meet guys nowadays. I travel a lot and meet guys out of state, but i prefer someone close to home. I am not however rushing a relationship or forcing anyone to be with me. I do have one person who is willing to donate to me if i need him and that's about it. Hopefully i will meet someone and raise a child with him together. I really prefer not to be a single mom of 2 children. Raising one alone is hard enough. Luckily with this one, i have the support of his dad's family and they help me a lot with him.

You sound like you have a game plan going forward, how exciting!!  I totally get what you are saying about being able to take charge and plan it the way you want.  One of the advantages of getting older ;)  Do you have someone in mind already or are in a relationship, or are you thinking of using a donor?
