Final post

I wanted to add one last final post to this blog before “disappearing forever”. I just worry that new people that may stumble across my blog may wonder why I don’t keep up with it anymore if they haven’t read certain posts……sadly, this is one of those infertility blogs that has ended in divorce… we are no longer on the infertility journey together.

I’ve enjoyed following each and everyone of your blogs, and I’ve made some real connections with a lot of people. I wish you all the best and hope and pray that each and everyone of you gets your happy ending.

It’s so unfair that ANYONE should ever have to experience infertility, but the fact of the matter is that they do….it does happen, and chances are if you’re not experiencing it yourself you know of someone who is….or maybe they’re suffering in silence. Continue reading

Overwhelming love & support

I’ve lost count of the number of cards and gifts I’ve received after learning about my ectopic pregnancy, but I’m just so appreciative….thank you so much, they all have meant so much to me! The overwhelming love and support has been so incredible, and I couldn’t be more thankful to have such a supportive network of friends and family.

My college roommate and good friend MK sent me this beautiful rose quartz necklace from Israel. Emotionally, rose quartz is used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety. All these things carry energies of forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion to the force, enabling us to see the good in both ourselves and others. I look forward to wearing it, because of it’s meaning, because of how beautiful it is, and because of the person who gave it to me. We’re not that close (distance wise) anymore, but she still remains one of my very best friends…and is always there for me when I need her. Thank you MK! I love you.

One year blogiversary

happyanniversaryToday is my one year blogiversary. One year ago I started this blog with this post. I started it as a way to keep track of my journey, and I shared it with a few close friends and family members….because it was easier to keep everyone up to speed on things on the blog. What I didn’t expect from this blog was the network of people (mainly women) I would meet and form relationships with. Quickly I found out that there were so many (too many) people  in similar situations travelling on the same journey. It was so nice to get advice and feedback from those people who had actually experienced the things I was going through, and could relate to how I was feeling. Of course my friends/family were there for me too….but it’s just different when you’ve been through it. Continue reading

Infertility sisters

photo“Infertility sisters” was not a term I was familiar with when I started TTC. And why would it be? We all assume that within a few months after we start TTC (a year at max) we’ll be pregnant, 9 months later we’ll have our baby, and that will be that. Once you pass that 12 month mark things change. The world of infertility can be very isolating. Our “fertile” friends and family are supportive, but they don’t get it 100%, and why would they? I wouldn’t get it if I wasn’t going through it myself. It’s a whole world I didn’t even know existed until I realized I was a part of it. This blog has helped me to connect with so many women going through similar situations, and it’s been a wonderful community. I have several women who I now consider “infertility sisters”. I’ve never met most of these women in “real life”, but we just get each other…..and I’m so glad to have them in my life. Continue reading
