I first found one lesbian mom group on Facebook through searching,
and then I found a second one a few days later.
The first group is a general lesbian parenting group, and the second specifically about fertility and trying to conceive a baby.
I haven’t posted in either one, and I won’t post for months yet, I’m sure.
I’m only lurking, only watching, watching closely.
I’m watching other lesbian Mom couples to see their journeys, triumphs, losses, and succeses.
Being added to these groups over the last week have been an amazing whirlwind of a ride, but it’s also been overwhelming, and downright terryfying, at times.
After about five days of highs and lows, delight at this new future source of support I’d found, but overwhelemed with all the acronyoms, knowledge, and information, I googled fertility acronyms. It helped immensely.
The feeling of being overwhelmed has subsided a bit, and now I read these women’s posts with curiosity, relief, and admiration, all while gaining knowledge.
I’m so happy these groups exists. I’m so happy that I’ve found them.
This is the first time I’ve ever felt this much confidence in our future family planning journey, the first time I’ve felt less alone, and like there’s more support available to us.
I’ve been feeling seperated for years, from close friends, and from all Moms and Moms-to-be in my life, simply because of the difference in family planning journeys. Simply because most of them didn’t even need to family plan in the slightest…
But I have these groups now. My wife has joined both groups as well. There are other prospective Moms who are going through what we will, and what we are going through even now.
It helps, it really does. Feeling less alone, and less seperated.
