To Tell or Not to Tell

When I started this blog, my goal was to be as honest and open as possible. Truthfully, it's kinda just my personality to be that way. It takes much more effort for me to withhold information or keep a secret than tell the world all of my personal business.

The other day I started considering how I would handle it if I did get pregnant. I had always thought that we'd only tell our parents until I was about 10 weeks along so that I was through the "most dangerous" part. At that time, I also figured I wouldn't even really know until I was 6 weeks along.

Now that I have invited you all in to share in our story, it's impossible to hide something that significant. You've all been there for me during the tears and frustration, it only seems fair that you should be there for the celebration.

So, I've decided that if the day ever does come that I get my positive, I will share it with you all. Knowing that things may still go wrong and I may quickly turn to you for support. With that said, it's been 1 week since my IUI so we have one more week to go! Keep your fingers crossed, the prayers coming, and positive thoughts flowing my direction...


  1. Sending lots of positive energy your way for your BFP!! :)

  2. I hope you get your BFP. I pray for you every night. You deserve it. And as far as telling everyone goes. If God forbid something goes wrong it is amazing to have that support.

  3. positive thoughts always coming your way (even when you don't want them)! =)

  4. One more week to go for both us to find out. Like my husband says "prepare for the worst, hope for the best". Praying for God's will for you! I can't believe how fast the 1st week went at least for me.

  5. You will get a BFP (if not this cycle, soon-ofcourse, I'm praying that it is this cycle!) and you must share! I've wondered the same thing as you because I do have some friends and family members who read my blogs, and I'm worried they will blab it or spread it on FB. I don't know what I'll do!

  6. It's hard to keep someething like that a secret plus you know I will be bugging you.. Plus you were the first to find out I was pregnant only becuase I was stupid and didn't know how to read the test. LOL!! Anyways's I am rooting for you... Jennifer

  7. We've pretty much got our fingers permanently crossed, and our prayers are always with you. If we can ever do anything to help in any way, for you or Moose, just let us know.

  8. Prayers and crossed fingers!!!! :)

  9. Amber,
    I found your blog through Mendy's (we went to high school together), and I wanted to wish you the best and let you know that I am praying for you. I also have PCOS and had the ovarian diathermy (drilling) with Dr. H. He is just an awesome man and wonderful physician. I now have two beautiful children, Ana (2 yrs) and James (2 mo). I remember how difficult and frustrating PCOS and IF are, and I wanted you to know that I hope you get a + very soon.
