Now that this seems to be taking a little longer than anticipated, I thought I would put together a timeline for everyone so you can see where we are in the process.
After several life events the Warrior Princess and I decide to move forward with trying to start a family. She leaves to go save the world as most superhero's do, I stay and hold down the fort.
I go to the Doctor's Office to do my Annual Exam and she lets me know in no uncertain terms that if I plan on having children, now is the time. (gulp) Already was planning on it, but it helps to have the motivation!
Because of my history of cancer I did all of the fertility testing up front for the most part. Chemotherapy makes your reproductive life shorter. We choose a donor and get set-up with a fertility clinic.
Warrior Princess comes home and we are off for Try #1 now referred to as TTC (trying to conceive). We visit a psycho-social reproductive counselor and are approved...although it was looking sketchy there for a sec.
