^unless you mean artificial insemination I'm pretty sure this is based on real people so I don't think science babies, that are genetically both of them, will happen

Given that chapter 5 is titled "We Decided To Use a Syringe!" I'd say your guess is pretty likely.

Wait. They are married?

So this can't be happening in Japan.

Presumably that's explained in the next chapter, titled "We're Wife and Wife", but it's likely what Japanese lesbians call marriage. Namely one gets signed on to the other's family register in something similar to an adoption and they share the same last name.

I guess they are writing about the journey almost in real time? In other words, one of them hasn't had the baby yet? Even the final chapter in the contents says to our future child. It also looks tankobonish, so maybe it can already be bought in Japan (or in my case from Japan via Honto).

Yes, the tankoubon is available for purchase in both physical and digital form from Japanese bookstores. The ISBN is 4040683617.
And as you guessed from the table of contents, they have not conceived yet by the end of the book.

Thank you. :)

It isn't getting the child what makes you a parent, it's raising the child. Totally didn't change Obama's quote I see almost every day at a lgbt account on instagram.

Very cool.

Also . . . this may feature non-moe art, but they're moe as hell in real life.

The authors were the first same-sex couple to be issued a marriage license in Japan.

Huh, there are five districts that have it now. Last time I looked there were only four.

There should be a thousand.

My trans ass won't have future children so reading this makes me self-concious at best.
Cis lez-couples don't have it near as bad, it's at times like these I feel like the T should be removed from the abbreviation.

near as bad as.....who? trans lesbian couples? they would have the exact same problems as not having the sperm + egg combination. trans-cis lesbian or gay couples would, optimally, have the sperm + egg combo so there's no inherent child-bearing problem there. trans-cis straight couples, like cis lesbian couples, would probably not have the sperm + egg combo but if you're saying that straight couples in any way shape or form have it harder than gay couples then you're just flat out wrong.

A het trans woman wouldn't have a uterus, so that's out. And a post-op trans lesbian wouldn't have sperm at all. A pre-op lesbian may not have viable sperm depending on how long she's been on HRT and what particular drug.

As to gay trans men, I gather large doses of testosterone and uteruses (uterii?) don't get along all that well, which is what killed Robert Eads, subject of the documentary Southern Comfort. So you've may have questionable egg viability, again depending a lot on circumstances.

Now of course depending on the country you might have stuff like adoption, surrogacy, freezing sperm or eggs prior to transition, or donated sperm or eggs to complicate the equation in the other direction. Plus probably stuff I forgot to mention.

As someone working in IVF, this ^^^. Getting eggs or sperm frozen before transitioning is a very good idea if you're wanting to have kids down the line.
