Infertility Bloggers Offer A Great Support Network!
I would like to refer you to some of the blogs that I follow that I consider worthwhile. Some of these ladies are still going through IF, some have finally achieved the pregnancy that they have been hoping for, some are going the adoption route & all are infertility advocates. I admire them for being willing to share their infertility journey publicly. They all welcome your comments & laments. Here are some: http://www.thefertilityblogs.com/ (a collection of bloggers), http://www.pouringoutmyinsides.blogspot.com/ , http://www.infertilityoverachievers.com/ , http://www.fromiftowhen.com/(in her 2ww period now), http://www.roadtohappilyeverafter.com/ (PCOS w/6 IUI's now pregnant), http://www.fertilitychick.blogspot.com/ (one of my fav's...on a break from IF treatments) and of course, one of the most popular blogs out there, the very funny, sometimes heart-breakingly so, http://www.999reasonstolaugh.com/ .
Another great resource: A few months ago I participated in Melissa, "The Stirrup Queen's", very rewarding "ICLW " infertility blogroll (http://www.stirrup-queens.com/2010/08/icomleavwe-august-2010/). On her website you will find a links this month to 166 blogs !!! Melissa has been blogging since 2006. To quote her: "Blogging is a conversation and comments should be honoured and encouraged. I like to say that comments are the new hug–a way of saying hello, giving comfort, leaving congratulations." In addition to Stirrup Queens, she also writes the daily Lost and Found (LFCA).
If you have a blog that you want to add to my list...please leave a comment & I will add it! Good luck on all your journeys, and remember:
"All of life is a journey; which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there." from A Little Book of Happiness
