I feel blessed that I have been able to get pregnant pretty quickly (especially the first time, when it happened within the sixteen days that my husband was in town). We know others who are married and want to become parents but it just isn't happening yet. I feel so sad for them. One of our best couple friends just had their first baby. They knew their chances of conceiving weren't very good, so they were surprised to see a positive pregnancy test after nearly four years of marriage. The couple who lived in that same place before them tried for about nine months before conceiving each of their kids. Two other couples I know have been trying unsuccessfully for more than a year.

Months ago I somehow came across the blog Sisterhood of Support. It's mainly a place for women with fertility issues to communicate with each other their thoughts, feelings, and ideas. I personally don't know what they are going through, but it's really interesting to me. Lately it seems that all I think about are pregnancy and childbirth.

There are some links on Sisterhood of Support that look really helpful. I also found another great blog, Our Journey of Love, and when I google-searched for "infertile blog" I found Infertility Blog and I Am More Than My Infertility. I have no idea how many people will read this post, but I hope it will help somebody.


Cammy asked about our move. It took longer than we had planned. But we had a lot of people who helped so we were able to get the majority of our things out (into a storage unit and two of our parents' houses) on January 31st. To all who helped us move or clean or offered your help, thank you! We're pretty settled into my mom's house now, and after D's last day of work we will be at his dad's. I took pictures of moving and of other things, but I haven't posted because I need to find the camera.


  1. Thanks for the blogs! I really appreciate it!

  2. Hey so I found your blog from Cammy's. Congrats on the pregnancy! That is really exciting. JP and I have been having some fertility problems but hope to add to our family soon. Thanks for the blog info too. I looked at your blog at the right time!


Leave some love!
