CD6, Honest to Blog

I never thought I'd say this (and I really never thought I'd write it), but I heart blogging. If you'd asked me a year ago my opinion on blogging, I'd of said "I don't really get it." You know, the whole putting your life online for the world to see, your innermost thoughts now public, and the narcissism of thinking that anyone would actually read it... not something I really understood.

And then, after almost a year of BFNs, and after my first failed IUI, I got online looking for women who were going through the same thing that I was. And as soon as I saw that there were blogs out there, and that the women were struggling with their anger, their disappointment, their frustration, that they ranted and they raved about the unfairness of it all, and they philosophized about the meaning of it all, and they commiserated with one another, and they sent out "hugs" and "good lucks" and "I'm so sorrys" through their comments, and suddenly I knew that I needed to be a part of that world.

And so, I have officially replaced my infertility obsession with an infertility blog obsession!

No longer do I think "my RE is an incompetent fool and that sucks," now I think "I am SO going to blog about what an incompetent fool my RE is and how much that sucks!"


I feel much better!


  1. Well said - I echo those sentiments!

  2. Haha, this pretty much sums up exactly how I feel. I was a blog stalker when I started having trouble, but it's much better releasing my thoughts on my own page instead of in everyone else's comments. :)

    Q: I have been reading your timeline and we are twins with the thin lining. I don't think my RE will try Femara with us, so if Clomid doesn't work, we may try injects next. Have you done Estrogen support at all to try to fluff things up? Just curious...

    I will be reading along to see how this round of injects go, I so hope it's THE ONE!

  3. Ha, when I started my blog, I barely even had a concept of what a blog actually was. I didn't get the point of commenting or anything, lol.

    I heart blogging too. Glad that it's been such a great outlet for you as well.

  4. Couldn't agree more! IF always seems so undercover, so its awesome to have a place where its okay to talk about this stuff, and to a group of people who totally get it!!

  5. You have no idea how annoyed I was at the concept of blogging when I first heard of it. And I can't believe I'm so in love with the blogging world as much as I am. The support we get is indiscribable and so needed, great post =)
