I understand

In the blogworld, people generally blog about a particular subject. This blog has been about infertility since I started down the slippery IVF road. But now... well... I'm in a bit of a transition period. Clearly no blog that touts 6w u/s pictures and BFPs can be an infertility blog anymore. If you're fighting the fight and would rather move away from 'yet another pg blog', I understand. It's ok! I've done the same thing, culling all of my blogroll when I realized everyone on there was pg except *me*.
So now I'm in those shoes. Weird.
If you decide to stay with my journey, I hope I can somehow help spread the word and awareness on IF. I've thought about getting involved publicly w/ Resolve. No one should have to go through all of this on their own. It's far too grueling. Far too tiring, and far too costly. You are not alone.

Annie-I'd like to continue following your blog. You're an inspiration to me and give me a lot of hope on my journey at CCRM. Thanks for all of the support you've shown me over the last few months. I'd like to keep supporting you through your pregnancy. Again, congratulations!

Annie, thanks so much for stopping by with your encouraging words. I am so thrilled to come here and hear about your CCRM miracle. We continue to second guess if we are making the right choice and the more blogs I find like yours tell me we are headed in the right direction. Thanks and all my best to you and your bean. (:

Heavens above girl - you shout it from the rooftops. And while this is no longer about infertility per se, even once its all sinking in, and it starts to become real, infertility leaves its scars, so we never truly leave it behind.

Will be keeping tabs on you.....I have you listed now......

I want you to know that even though I am still in IF hell I look forward to reading your blog everyday because it gives me hope. Most of the time I feel like all of this effort and money is useless, but when I read about your pregnancy I feel like maybe it could happen. I don't think the scars of IF ever go away so I can understand the weird place you find yourself in. I will miss you at Resolve though!

I feel the same way. I don't look at your miracle as all the others we deal with who got married in June and are pregnant in July. Yours was something I can relate to and it makes me think that maybe we'll be in your shoes someday if we keep persevering like you guys did.

Ditto and Ditto. Yours is a story of heartbreak, perserverance and hope. I'm enjoying your great news - and your journey definitely makes me think about which way to turn next...and has probably saved me a bunch of money and heart-ache at that place we've heard so many complain about locally.

There's not much different I can add..so I'll still be reading. Hope is such a good thing and I need it every place I can get!

Your story is an inspiration for all of us! We all hope that we too, will one day cross over to the other side. and it's nice to know it's possible. It's nice to know that sometimes those miracles DO happen. Not for everyone, but for some, and hopefully for some of us too.

I wish you ALL the happiness in the world. Enjoy every single second. you desereve it!
