A Word From Our Sponsors

I know I'm pretty new to the whole TTC/IF scene here on the Intarweb even though my own journey to bring a real live baby into the world has been going on for well over 2 years now. I just wanted to say thanks for all the support that I've received.

There are many brands of infertility; the kind with chemicals, the kind with broken personal bits, the kind that doesn't have a rhyme or reason. Easy to get pregnant, impossible to carry to term. A pregnancy that can only be achieved with the aid of needles and doctors. The agony of cycle after failed cycle. But they all have in common the dizzying highs of anticipation and devestating lows of loss.

While I have huge doubts and worries about the viability of this pregnancy (not based on fact, by the way, just pure recurrant miscarrier anxiety) I don't take the blessing of conception for granted, nor am I ignorant to the difficulties that some might have in continuing to read this blog because I know that feeling myself all too well. Other people's good fortune, even if you don't begrudge them, can be difficult when you feel that life is doing it's best to beat you to a pulp.

Just felt I needed to say that. Thank you all so much.

Thanks for the comment on my blog-it is great to find someone who has the same feelings! Good luck and may things go very well for you this time. I'll check back and see how it is going!

The "thanks of support" go both ways. You have written this post so well. As you have said sometimes it's difficult to read, but on the other hand, I feel like I'm on the sidelines rooting for you while I'm waiting to get called out to the field.

I wish no one had to go through IF and miscarriage but I know you still need the support to get through this pregnancy too, so I'm here for you.
