I have wanted to be a mom my entire life. I started seriously thinking about parenting in my late 20s. In my early 30s I casually considered having a baby on my own if I did not find my Mr. Joy Chaser soon. At age 34 I started praying about it, discussing it with my mom and joined the Single Mother By Choice (SMC) online community and researching the Internet for all things SMC. Right before turning 35 I meet with my Gynecologist, a Reproductive Endocrinologist, did blood work, ultrasounds, and had an HSG (very unpleasant, but quick, test that determines if your uterus is normal and tubes are open) . Finally, at age 35 I am officially trying to conceive.
