After a long wait, I was sent for tests and it was discovered that I had a low egg count. Given that my Mum and Grandma went through the menopause at 40, the doctor suggested that I ‘waste no time’ and go straight for IVF (no pressure there then!!).   After waiting for a year and lots more tests for me and my hubby, I found myself at...

A Blokes Diary of Baby Making - Introduction

So here I am, at the age of 39 years, 351 days, beginning a blog about men, pregnancy and ‘doing my bit’. Needless to say this feels pretty ridiculous because never before did I have the inclination that I would want a child, until I met the woman of my dreams 18 months ago. But since then reproduction curiosity and the desire to meet a 'mini us' has filled many a thought, sensible or drunken conversation alike. So, at last I have found peace within myself, stepped out of the 'commitment-phobe shadow' and I am prepared to buy the most...
