Wow, hard to believe exactly 1 year ago I started writing this blog as a way to keep sane during my upcoming IVF. By the time I started writing the blog, I had already been through a miscarriage, a lot of fertility treatments and several failed IUIs. Now I’m sitting here getting kicked from the inside by a very active baby. Amazing how fast it has all gone and how much difference a year makes.
My first blog entry: https://stoptellingmetorelax.wordpress.com/2014/03/07/testing/
Since I’ve had my other blog for maybe 5 years, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to keep up with another one. I barely find time to write on the other one, but this one has been so easy to keep up with. And even though I’ve had the other one for years, I never interacted or connected with other bloggers the way I have with this one. Doing an IVF blog gave me a wonderful outlet for my anxiety and the ups and downs of this pregnancy journey and I’m enjoying following other blogger’s journeys as well as sharing my own.
I don’t really have any other pregnant friends, I don’t even know anyone else who has gone through IVF and all my friends had kids years ago, so connecting with people going through similar situations at the same time has been invaluable. I think having to try so hard to get pregnant certainly gives you a different outlook on things. I’m so grateful for the people I’ve met through this blog, and those that share their stories and are sharing in my experience as well. I look forward to every comment, like and reply from all of you. It makes me feel like I have a special group of friends who understand the way others may not 🙂
