Well...It all started in November of 2005. I began a livejournal account specifically for what I called "pre-conception motherhood". I was in need of an outlet for my cluckiness ...aka: desire to have a baby even though "we" were not ready yet.
The name is a combonation of two names: Demeter ; The Mother Earth Goddess of the Greek Pantheon, and Shima; a native american name meaning "mother". I wanted my name to represent my goals and hopes for the future.
So...it was only natural that the name carry over when I did become pregnant!
It took a year of longing and 9 months of "trying" but here we are!
