Single mothers by choice

Hi,

I was wondering if there's any single mamas on here by choice? It would be nice to have support in that area. I'm TTCing this week and hope to have a bfp around Christmas I chose to be a single mother by choice.

Thanks!

Re: Single mothers by choice

Well I'm not a single mom by choice but I joke and say if I don't meet and marry someone within the next five years or so I'll take matters into my own hands. LOL. So can I ask how you're doing it? I'm just totally curious but tell me to mind my own business if you don't want to share.

Lol.. I'm fine sharing how... I'm doing home insemination with a friend who was willing to donate his sperm. I'm thankful for him. I'm also thankful for my mom who is supporting me of my choice! I'm looking forward to it but not the 2ww!

Ok, I'm really going to sound ignorant, but is that like with a turkey baster or something.

That's awesome that your mom is so supportive.

Not ignorant it used to be called the turkey baster method actually but there's no way I'm sticking one up there lol. Actually you use a syringe or instead soft cup. I'm gonna use the soft cup method.

Re: Single mothers by choice

Me, sort of! Was willing to be a single mom, met a great person to co parent with, started the pregnancy thinking we'd be together but then decided we weren't... So I'm single mom by circumstance but was ready and willing to be single mom by choice! Loving it do far, I have awesome supportive family and my daughter's dad is great as well.
