Paying it forward

Egghunt nominated me for my first awards, thank you very much!   I cannot say enough about the support and comfort her comments and blog have provided me.  I admire her strength and perseverance to keep fighting to get what she wants, the ever elusive baby!  So many times I have felt comforted, validated and reassured after reading her blog or comments.  I am very thankful our paths have crossed on this journey.

I have only been blogging a short time and there are only a handful of people I follow closely.  They have all received these awards, but I will nominate anyway because I love them!  These women have done more for me in the short time I have “known” them than I ever could have imagined.  I am so grateful we have discovered each other.

Egghunt who I mentioned above, but is worth another mention.  Her supportive words brought me back to the blogosphere after devastating news.

Myndi with a recent BFP – yea!  Her support and positive outlook have kept me going through a rough cycle.  Our cycles were neck and neck, it helped to have someone going through the same things at the same time.

Hope Springs who met her soulmate later in life, like me and is now struggling with fulfilling the dream of a large family.  I can relate so much to her experiences.  I love her heartfelt, honest posts.

Simple who just received some sad news, I am so sorry.  She tells it how it is and keeps me laughing.  A sense of humor is so important when going through something as big as infertility.

    Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog! I was just doing a little catch-up on yours. I am so sorry your first IVF didn’t work. Believe me, I completely understand the grieving process you are going through right now. I was so devastated. To make matters worse, I looked 6 months pregnant from OHSS and someone actually asked me when I was due. Ouch. But you are right in your last post when you say that the first round teaches you and the clinic so much about your body and how it responds to IVF. It lets you tweak the protocol and improve things and also lets you be more mentally prepared. In my 2nd IVF I have been a lot more relaxed and feel more confident and the doctors have changed a lot of things to make this round go better for me. I am sure they will do the same for you.

    Big hugs to you for all you are going through. Hang in there … you will have your BFP.
