It's Been A Year

Last year, on this day, I started this blog.


A year. So much has happened, and yet so little at the same time.

I had just had a 3rd IUI cancelled due to my overachieving left ovary. M. and I decided to take a break from the RE and treatment. I started acupuncture. Surely, I would fall pregnant. After all, I don't have problem conceiving, just staying pregnant.

Month after month went by, negative after negative. I quit acupuncture. The holidays came and went. More negatives. I stopped temping.

Finally, in March, I got those elusive two pink lines.

Shocked, doesn't even begin to explain my feelings as I stared at that test. And then as quickly as the joy came, my world crashed again. But this time, as I suffered my 5th loss, it was different.

I had you.

You who supported me in those 3 weeks of every other day betas, my musings on whether to take the met.hotrexate or not, you who just stopped by to say sorry. You who listened to me complain about feeling pregnant, my face breaking out, and bleeding. You offered thoughts, experiences, and even some laughter.

There are not enough words to even start to thank you. Please, just know, that no comment goes unnoticed.

Thank you.


  1. 365 days doesn't seem like a lot until you look back and see what has (or hasn't) happened. I am so hopeful for you as you start the IVF process. There really is no reason you won't be pregnant in the next 365 days:-) Hugs to you. Thank you continually for your support and friendship as well.

  2. Happy blogoversary! Glad you started So I could "meet" you!

  3. Yay for your one year anniversary! I am so glad I found you (you found me??) and we've been able to support each other. You are one of the most caring people I've ever (not) met and I am so glad you share your story.

    I KNOW your story ends with another baby. I know it. And I am not going anywhere... so you'd better not either!

    Huge hugs!

  4. Happy blogoversary!

    I wish we didn't have so much in common infrtility-wise, but having someone to share the ups and downs with is a welcome respite.


  5. congrats on your one-year-blogiversary! And yes. The support of a like-minded community can make all the difference in the world. I am so glad you have been a part of my community, and I a part of yours...


    I haven't been around for all of your journey, but I have to say, the support you have given others has been just as important to them as the support you've received. Me included. It sucks that we have to meet such wonderful women under such craptastic circumstances, but I'm glad to have met you. :)

  7. Happy Blogoversary!

    I am so glad that I found you. HUGS!

  8. I am glad that you have a blog--but I wish you had a different reason for having one. : )


  9. Happy Anniversary :) You rock!!

  10. Wish you a very happy blogoversary! And Good Luck to you, sweetie!

    Thank you for the wonderful wonderful words of support on my blog. Since I am an officially declared bozo, I was slack in responding on time. Please forgive me for that!

    All the very best!

  11. Dancing with you to celebrate a year of blogidy goodness. I'm sorry we all couldn't have gotten together on happier circumstances, but I'm with you and very thankful to have this community to begin with.


  12. Happy blogversary! <3

    I'm with Hillary! I'm so excited for your IVF process!
