About Me~About This


Ok, so since I feel as though I’ve progressed from where I was I thought I’d make a new “about me” section.  I am still a married Army wife, I’m still 25 26 27.

This blog now will deal with more than just fertility because-in all honesty- I am more than my fertility status.  I know this but sometimes I forget when I’m having a bad day. And in speaking of bad days, I am going to be including more about my fibromyalgia (probably gonna do some informational bits as well since it’s a diagnosis with sooo many factors).  I am also going to be (hopefully should all go well) starting my own website (I think I’ll call it “A Woman’s Heart”) that will be solely for women.  I am currently looking for Ideas as to what should be on my site (and I welcome any and all suggestions) as far as products and services.   I’m sure that frustration will set in with that and I’ll write about it here as well as the good stuff.

I must say that I am glad I am learning to look beyond the things that infertility brought to my life because now I can share and continue to grow rather than stay in that rut.  Not to say (as previously mentioned) that I won’t still write about it because that isn’t true, but my hope is to be able to release.  I hope that made sense.

Thank You so much for reading my blog and I hope that you, dear reader, will continue on this crazy journey called “life”

This isn’t my first blog by any means but I decided that my life at this point needs a new start. Mainly, I hope to put my frustrations of being infertile out there into the universe so that it isn’t dwelling inside of me. It is such a hard realization that having a child isn’t a right that any one person has- its a privilege and sometimes not all have that privilege.

A bit about myself. I am 24 25 years old. I am married. We have been trying to have a baby for two years 10 months three years. Our last cycle of trying ended Oct 6,2007.

We are a military family and I come from a military family. I may or may not rant and rave at my father and his wife through this blog since I don’t particularly like them or the drama that they bring to my life.

I do hope that I can post some happiness in this blog as well. Right now I am in a dark place and it may reflect in my postings. Maybe some of you will make the journey with me. The journey of living life with this disease that has many causes and (like in my case) no apparent cause at all. I am hoping that I don’t drop anymore into this abyss but if I do then at some point I am gonna have to stop myself.

I may post the blogs of others on here as well and how I relate to them… I will *always* link to and give credit to whom credit is due. I’ll try to keep up frequently.

That is my introduction to me, the reason for this blog, my hope for the future.

    Hey there … found your blog via ttc over a year board on FF and I just wanted to say that I’m sorry you’re going through infertility. (I am too.) I can hear the pain in your heart and I just wanted to say that I’m sorry you’re going through this. We never grew up thinking this would (or could!) happen to us. I pray that this time that you’re not ttc will somehow (??) be a blessing.

    Thank you thank you thank you for leaving a comment and taking the time to tell me your story. The great thing about my post is that I have learned many different sides of this issue. My views are changing I will say.

    My son is in a school where I am 20+ years younger than most of the parents – and I was only 21 when I had him. The children of the much older parents have soooo many problems from severe learning disabillities, OCD to other problems. They are functioning in normal society. The parents really don’t have a lot of energy (yes there are exceptions) and it is more than aparent.

    My flaws are big and loud – including stubbornness and being opinionated and I am very aware of this so thank you again! – I hope you have a baby – I wish you no ill will. I will keep up with your blog!

    thanks again

    This may seem really uneducated… but I have heard that when you start practicing yoga and relax so deeply that the stress of infertility leaves you – you get pregnant pretty quickly… have you heard anything about that?

    Yes I have actually.I do yoga about three times a week when I am really motivated and make the time at least once a week. Truth is that the problem isn’t that I am not ovulating due to stress, or timing or anything of that sort. Its medical and its the both of us. Unfortunately, relaxing doesn’t resolve those problems.

    Thanks though for taking an interest. Don’t worry about “Uneducated” when askin me questions. Truth is most people don’t even think of fertility (or infertility) or take the time to learn about it. Alot of GYN’s don’t know any more than the very basic information of dealing with the diagnosis of Infertility.

    If asking questions will give you more perspective/knowledge…then please…ask as many as you would like 😀

    Good grief its both of you! Now that is a lot to deal with!!! If this is too personal tell me – but have they said they think you will concieve? I need to read more of your blog!

    A friend of mine had a baby through a surrogate – it was a good experience for her. Does insurance cover any of this?

    Hi,

    I came across your blog today through the tags, and wanted to extend a warm hug from another infertile woman. I tell people that there are two struggles with infertility. Struggling against infertility, with is what you do when you’re trying to overcome it, and struggling with infertility, which is how you live the rest of your life, regardless of whether you remain childless or build your family in some other way.

    I look forward to getting to know you better through your blog.

    Hi,

    I found your web page via ravelry, and was moved by your story. I’ve never wanted children, but a couple of years ago I had to have a hysterectomy, and now have no choice.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m the first to say that a life without children is fulfilling and wonderful, but whatever your initial desires, it’s nice to have options, and bad when they’re taken away.

    Good luck, and here’s to dancing in the rain.

    Hi, just sending you cyber hugs. I saw a link to your blog I think on http://www.bubclub.com and came to check it out.

    Hi! I love reading blogs and since I am a blogger myself I try to find topics of interest that I can write about from other bloggers . (Loved your bit about “wondering”!!) As you can tell by what I write on Surrogacy 101 (http://infertilityanswers.typepad.com/surrogacy_101/) I am into 3rd party reproductive stuff…ART. Being a Gestational Surrogate 2x and, before that, experiencing seconday infertility gives me a ton to blog about. I’m just writing you to offer my support and hope that you do have some good news in your future. If you want to explore the thought of a surrogate (or anything else) then you can feel free to write to me. I no longer am in the matching biz so to speak, but I do have a lot of contacts and might be able to help in some small way.

    Have a great week!
    Sharon
