Single mothers by choice?
I'm not a mom (or pregnant) yet but I am planning to go through treatments with sperm donation to become pregnant and have a child to raise on my own. Is anyone else out there like me? I figured this might be the best board to ask at.

Re: Single mothers by choice?
I'm here intermittantly.

If I don't answer your questions in a timely manner, I'm not mad, I just haven't had the chance to log in for awhile. ;)

My donor conceived school aged child is my youngest. His older siblings were conceived within the context of relationships that later went sour.

It's not easy to raise a child by yourself, but it is much easier than raising a child in a bad relationship or coparenting while decoupling from someone who does not share your values or your parenting philosophy, in my experience.

I have no regrets, but I may not always have relevant experience for your situation either, so I hope a younger first time mommy will chime in.

Have you found this board yet? Our Community | Single Mothers by Choice

There is also a Facebook group for SMCs and women who are considering becoming SMCs.

I have looked at that website, but am wondering if the membership fee is worth what you'd get with a membership. Although since I'm not planning on TTC for another 18-24 months the community might be a good idea, if only to keep me sane until then haha.

The Facebook one is free, but it's a closed group and I can't get you in because I'm not on Facebook any more.

I hope another SMC or future SMC shows up. I haven't met anyone else here, but I'm not very active and tend to flood the board and then disappear.

I'll bump your thread from time to time if I don't forget.

It took me two years to get a BFP because of my age (over 40) so it's been close to a decade since I was where you are now and I probably look back through rose colored glasses.

Enjoy the journey!
