I've made a discovery almost as significant as Columbus' discovery. Recently, I discovered thousands of lesbian conception blogs. Now that I know that they are out there, I feel a bit silly admitting that I thought I was one of a select few with a clever idea.

Some of my favorite lesbo blogs are already listed, but I assure you that I will list others as soon as I find the time. If you have any suggestions as I wade through this brave, new world, please let me know.

When Nadia and I first started this journey a few months ago, I had no idea how big the lesboconeptionblogosphere really was. I have to sheepishly admit it's pretty damn vast! I feel comforted but I also feel a bit small. I don't know if I can keep up with it all or where I fit in.

As a black lesbian, I wonder if my voice is distinguishable from the thousands of other queers who are doggedly counting their egg waiting for the right one to drop.

But then again, in the grand scheme and wonderment of conception, birth and rejunvenation, does it really matter?

I made the same discovery not too long ago - I take comfort in the fact that there are so many of us out there with different stories and backgrounds but the same ultimate goals. There is something to be said about strength in numbers. Good luck on your journey.

When I first started blogging I thought, "I'm a non-bio lesbian mom in an interracial relationship trying to get pregnant. That's so unique." Turns out, we all pretty much go through the same craziness. Which in some ways feels a little better than feeling unique.
