Baby, Baby, Baby, Oh

I can't believe in only 5 short days that it will have been officially 2 years since we dove into seemingly simple task of conceiving our first child. I say seemingly simple because that's what everyone thinks it is. From the moment you start learning about sex in health class up until the moment you decide you're ready to have kids, you do everything in your power to prevent it from happening.
In health class we learn all about what sex is, and how babies are made but not once do they talk about any of the reasons you might not be able to get pregnant. Why is that? I don't know if the sex ed curriculum has changed much in that regard since I was in high school but I didn't start learning about all the things that could be wrong until I started researching it myself. I wish I could go back in time and learn about my own fertility when I was still a teenager because at least then I would have been able to make different choices such as freezing my eggs.
Two years really feels like eons ago, so much has changed. Two years ago Peter and I were living in our condo in Scarborough, I was still working at EduKids in the preschool room, we were getting ready to buy a house and I was blissfully unaware of the all the pain and heartache that the future had in store for us.
But I don't want to make my first blog post on here too depressing, because honestly, I'm in a pretty good place right now. I don't know how I got here considering our recent failed IVF cycle but I'm not questioning it. Welcome to my baby steps website!
I created this website for three reasons:
1. I've been very into website design lately and wanted an excuse for another personal project.
2. To compile our journey to parenthood all in one easily accessible location....for posterity.
3. I like to write and I really haven't had much opportunity to lately, so what better time for a blog?
So if anyone reads this, thanks for taking the time and hopefully if you continue to follow our journey then you will be one of the first to see the light at the end of our tunnel.
