In the spirit of the "how, when, where... to comment" posts that have recently been posted on the Stirrup Queen's blog (http://www.stirrup-queens.com/) I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you out there who have read and commented on my blog posts.

At a time in my life where I find myself incredibly lonely and have found it hard to talk about this with my friends IRL (most are either already moms or currently pregnant), you all have provided me with a fabulous community and support network. So thank you thank you thank you.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn't say to all of you that you are some of the bravest, most impressive women I have ever "met." Regardless of whether you are an IF veteran or new in this community, you are all on an emotionally and physically taxing journey, and are amazing for your ability/ willingness to share your lives and seek support and guidance.

Again, thank you thank you thank you.


  1. (I think my previous comment got deleted)

    This community is amazing! Every day, I wonder how on earth I would go through this with no support (well, you know except for from Hubby).

    I'm glad we could be here to support you!

  2. I agree too, without the IF bloggers I would have lost my mind by now. Thanks for your comments, they make all the difference.

  3. Thank you for sharing such kind words with infertility blog land. It's such an isolating feeling and I know I feel less alone when I read others' stories. Very much looking forward to catching up with your blog.

    All the best!

  4. I agree with you. I've chosen not to tell my close friends - it's nice to go out with them and NOT talk IF, which you know would be what they'd want to talk about. They'd be curious. Us IF bloggers understand! It's so good to know you are not alone.

  5. I just want to say thank you to everyone too. Until you have done IVF, you have no idea what we've been through. The emotional roller coaster, the yearning for a child, and the feelings of emptiness. Unfortunately, there are extremely insensitive people out there who have gotten pregnant at the drop of a hat. We have to live in their world every day, and it's nice to come to our own private world and share a common bond. Thank you.

  6. You are brave and wonderful, too. I know how it is - not having anyone IRL who you can really talk to. What would we do without this wonderful community. Thanks for all the support you've provided me - you are quite impressive yourself!
