Ok, time for sharesies.
When we started fertility treatments, I wasn’t sure I was going to blog about them. It seemed way too personal to share with the whole world. But when I started getting very depressed, David encouraged me to go ahead and write the story. He thought it might help me to get the feelings out everyday. And it has. It has helped so much to hear other women’s stories of success and triumph, and also despair and defeat. I have shared information and had information shared with me. I’ve received accolades for being honest about PCOS and infertility, and I’ve also received a few questions about how much of my life I want anyone on the Internet to be able to read. It’s been a real journey, and I can’t thank everyone enough who has supported me.
I started writing about infertility about a month after our first fertility treatment. I didn’t want to keep it perfectly current in case we got pregnant and had a miscarriage. I wouldn’t have any problem sharing a miscarriage with the blog-readers, but I did want to give myself time to mourn if that did indeed happen.
So as of today, I am 10 weeks pregnant. I’ve written blogs several times a week every week and I will share each of them with you (including ultrasound videos!). Eventually, I’ll be all caught up and you’ll be reading along real-time. I am prepared to share the good, the bad, the ugly, and the really weird. (There’s a lot of really weird.)
Thanks to all the blog-readers, blog-lurkers, and friends!
