My Work Here is Done

Kind of.

During the past 2-1/2 years of keeping a blog, I amassed a small list of other women in the throes of infertility whose blogs I followed. Today is a happy, happy day. Because – with only 2 exceptions – and I don’t know what is going on with those two writers because they haven’t posted in many months (Carrie? Where are you? I miss you.) – every one of the bloggers I follow regularly has made it through to the other side.

Last fall I wondered if I should end my blog as a way of closing the door on infertility for me. I decided, however, that I could not leave all my comrades who hadn’t closed the door themselves.

All are now mothers. Many are on a successful second journey. It makes me exhale a deep sigh of relief. Of contentment.

But a few are still struggling for a second shot at pregnancy. Myself included. So I’m not giving this space up.

Cowboy and I decided that while we are late in the game, we want to give it another shot. My cycles are finally back now that I am nursing only once a day.

So I fired up the CBEFM and set it to CD1.

Holy shit. Here we go again.

Wow, this title pissed me off. Then I read on and realized you are not really leaving for good.

I am also torn on where to go with my blog. Do I really want to just spend the next year or so before we try again with stories and pictures of Finn?? Kind of.

Good luck! Oh CBEFM, I do not miss you yet. So excited to watch round 2!

I am so happy that you are back! I miss Carrie too, so so much. I will abide with you. And if you can't read my blog-DON'T. Or if you just don't feel like it. Or hate it. I'l still be here.
Good luck. And peace.
