I sure have written a lot of crap!

This is my 100th post on here. I was really hoping it could be something exciting, but I don't have too much to report right now. Just waiting for my 1st real period following my D&C which should arrive early next week. And then we're back to trying...

I can't believe I've actually come up with enough to say that I've posted 100 times. I also can't believe that I've had over 10,000 hits to my site or that I have 44 followers now. I feel so incredibly privileged that 44 people actually think that what I write is worth reading... my English teachers would have been so proud. :)

This blog was started for simple fun. I thought maybe somebody will read it and maybe even a couple would think it was entertaining. I mainly did it for myself. It feels great to put your feelings down on "paper" and even better to find out that others have felt that way too. What I've found out is that I can't wait to get home to check my comments others have left. Or to check on the other blogs that I follow to see the results of their pregnancy test or if their baby was born or how their appointment went. (Kinda like being a peeping Tom.)

These girls have become my friends. We may live many miles apart, but you are all here with me every step of the way. And for those that have blogs, I feel so connected because you share your most personal life experiences with me. So, I thought the best way to "use" my 100th post was to say thank you.

Thanks to my "pre-existing" friends who have been there from the start. Thanks to my "infertile" friends, who make me feel not-so-alone. And thanks to everyone who has prayed, loved, cared, cried, yelled, and laughed during this journey. There's no way I could have went through it all without you.


  1. Happy 100 post! I love you girl and I'm so glad you are in this community (you know what I mean, I wouldn't wish this for anyone). I'm so glad we all have one another and I'm going to be here for you forever...I'll still be reading when you have 1000 posts! Hopefully by then you have 2-3 babies! :)

  2. Congrats on 100 posts!! This blog community wouldn't be the same without you! :-)

  3. Amber...Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I look forward to following your IF journey too! :) XX

  4. thanks for your sweet good wishes on our transfer today!
    I am so sorry for your loss-- that is heartbreaking- and I hope your period comes soon so you can move forward. Mine showed up 5 weeks after the D&C.
    And you-- the fact that you got pregnant is awesome, I know the loss is awful and I am not trying to downplay that, but the pregnancy itself is much farther than many folks get- it means your stuff likes to tango, that fertilization is possible, and that is a great thing to know! I wish you all the best as you move forward on your journey. It sure looks like you have an awesome support system here! And I'll definitely be stopping by to see how things are going-- no matter what, I'll be pulling for you.
