“Ontario To Fund In-Vitro Fertilization”

On seeing the headline “Ontario To Fund In-Vitro Fertilization” in the National Post, it first seems like a triumph for IVF patients, and possibly once the formal announcement is made this will be a very positive thing for many heterosexual couples

C is for Conceive

conceive - to become pregnant with offspring. C is for Conceive and when most of us are thinking about this concept we are thinking down the road, about 9 months down that road, we see ourselves holding a happy, bouncing baby

Azoospermia

Azoospermia, what a strange word.  But it is a word that is embedded deep into my psyche and a word that changed my life forever!  I will always remember how I felt and how I reacted when I heard the

Being a Sperm Donor Mom is Taboo, or so I have been told!

“Why are some people so baffled these days about what some of us have to do in order to have children.  It seems just fine if we are in a relationship with someone who already has children and we raise them

A Journey of Loss and Life!

Blog posts are usually very organic for me, they pop into my head and I write them rather quickly with spelling mistakes and bad grammar all included. I then go back and fix my mistakes hoping that the post looks

About Me
Allison Rouble

Allison Rouble

I am a 41 year old Wife and DI Mom to 3 year old B/G Twins and a 4 year old daughter all born using anonymous donor sperm #BGM 9581 from xytex. I live with my wonderful Husband in Ontario, Canada. I am many things other then a Mom. I am a wicked dreamer, a mild mannered skunk hunter, a no nonsense chef, a lover of a glass of wine, a participating wife and a best friend. I started blogging about my crazy life as a mom to donor conceived kids back in 2009 when my first daughter was just 1 and I was trying for baby #2 (which ended up being twins). Now I write at GENdMOM.com about my life and issues having to do with the world of Donor Gametes, infertility, and the mess it can all sometimes be.

However, I discovered I had more to write about then just being a mom of donor conceived kids, I also found that I got great joy from interacting with others about being a Mom, A Wife, A Women, etc. Most importantly I found an online world of friends and family. Therefore I started a
