so much.

countless tears, a lot of bad days, and some perfect and amazing good days.

110 people who care enough to follow my story. 967 comments.... all wonderful. all supportive and amazing.
when my husband suggested i start a blog i thought he was crazy.... i asked if he had ever read an infertility blog...to my surpise he had. i thought they were crazy.....full of sad stories, full of terrible things happening, or infertiles who had achieved their dream. i thought everything about it was crazy....especially all the abbreviations!

but i needed an outlet. i need a way to get my feelings out.... so. i did it. and truly. this community. all you ladies. my friends. i just don't know how it would have worked with out your support.

so today. to celebrate my 200th posting, i celebrate you. i say thank you. without you, who knows where i would be.
and i send my love. all my love. to all of you wonderfully supportive and special women.

xoxo

  3. Congrats on 200 posts! I felt the same about infertility blogs, my blog was in fact specifically NOT about my infertility until the miscarriage and then it was the only thing that kept me sane! So glad you've found an outlet to get you through this crazy mess!

  13. Hang in there girl. From one infertile to another, I feel your pain-literally. Although I haven't been through as much as you have-you are one strong woman. Two miscarriages, two D&C's, , 1 crazy month of me going to this crack holistic doctor, 1 infertility clinic,two doctors, 3 failed IUI's, and almost three years of trying. A LOT OF WTF dr's appointments. There has to be a light at the end of the tunnel at some point right?
