Day 2 of ICLW

I know it's National Infertility Awareness Week, but I'm just not sure what I should write about this week that's different from last week. I'm still here, still technically infertile, year after year, and still unable to completely come out of the closet regarding it. I can't put my finger on why I care so much about "coming out" about it, except for the pity I have gotten from some people I've told. So many of my friends who felt so bad when they got pregnant after I'd been trying for awhile (a few years ago now) are on their second and third kids and who wants to be brought down by my whining about it?

I do think people should quit it with the ultrasound pictures on facebook though. Seriously, no one cares about the U/S pic except you of course, and MAYBE your parents. That's it.

Ok, off my soapbox now :)

Still seem to be having issues commenting and it's driving me crazy! I don't know if anyone's seeing my comments.

Today I have posted on:



  1. I agree with you 100% about u/s pictures on facebook... and really, facebook in general. You are definitely on a difficult road and I will say this, you are a strong, strong woman and in less than a week I have enjoyed reading what you have to say and hearing your vulnerability and strength shine through what you write!

  2. so sorry that things are not moving along for you. Hoping so much for things to turn around for you. I'm totally routing for you.

    Sending you lots of positivity.

  3. Hey there, sorry it's being rather difficult for you at the moment. Am here from ICLW and have read your posts for a coupla weeks now, thought is about time I said hey!
    I constantly fight the urge to 'out myself', not that I want to, but sometimes I want to stand up and shout at the insenstive fertiles around me who constantly complaing about pregnancy or their children and say "shut the EFF up, you have no idea how lucky you are!" silly? I guess, I still think one day I may snap!
    Keeping my fingers crossed for both the surrogacy and profiling :)

  4. I hate the update for blogger, too! Blegh.

  5. Agggg an earthquake happened in the middle of typing that comment, sorry it got cut off!

    I can't agree with you enough about Facebook. I just don't get iy.
