It's interesting, since being more forthcoming with my own fertility struggles-and also by keeping my ears open a little bit more-I have come to meet so many people who either have dealt with infertility (to some degree) in the past, or are dealing with it currently. It's like a little secret society (albeit no one wants to join it). Unfortunately, infertility is still a taboo subject. I can't judge this. People have their reasons for not talking about it. Hell, I had mine. I didn't want the pitying looks and the side-bar discussions about me. So even if you don't talk about it, even if you don't feel comfortable with sharing your story...know that you are DEFINITELY not alone.
Anyway, my friend, Erin, is now 9 weeks pregnant and everything is looking good (knock on wood)! She's had two ultrasounds and the little bean is growing well and has a nice strong heartbeat. Erin has been trying to get pregnant for about two years now and I would have never known this, had I not told her about what what we went through to conceive Alex (not in a freaky, I'm going to share my life story with you way...I honestly mentioned it vaguely-almost in passing). I met Erin through my husband, who works with her husband. After hearing about what we did, she told me that she has PCOS and never gets periods. I told her she should go to my doctor, which she did. Six months, injections and Metformin later-and now she's pregnant! So happy for her and sending her lots of sticky dust/healthy baby vibes!!!
Six weeks, two days until our appointment!
