Thankful...

Today was a good day.

I had a chance to catch up with a friend from college and as we were chatting, it became pretty apparent that we both were skirting the same issue. Infertility. Although I wouldn't wish it on anyone, it sure is comforting to know that I have someone in real life that gets it. It felt great to sit for three hours and hash out everything that is hard about it with someone who both understood and wasn't awkward when it came to sharing intimate details on the ins and outs of this mess.

With my track record, she will probably be pregnant by next week. I'm OK with that, because for today I felt like I was part of a secret sorority of sorts... The Empty Womb Society.

Hi! I came across your blog recently and wanted to tell you that I'm enjoying it. Not necessarily enjoying that you're going through the quite possibly the roughest time of your life, but because you do it with such zest and humor. I am also a part of The Empty Womb Society. I've been TTC for coming on 2 years. Although I have a child already, secondary infertility is just as real and just as hard. I look forward to continuing reading your blog.

P.S. On my last blog post, I took that checklist of how you know you're infertile. I linked your blog to it, giving you credit. It was just too funny to not post for my readers to see. :)

I know exactly how you feel... Although my two closest friends were also infertile. Now they both have kiddos, and I'm still apart of the EWS for now.
