Thank You.

We are in the home stretch. Not only does the calendar say that but writing this blog and having to sit in the chair and the fact that the baby is literally putting both feet through my rib cage tells me.. ITS TIME TO BE DONE!!

Hubby asked me the other day what the blog will become after baby arrives. I told him I wasn't to sure. He suggested a 'mommy' type blog or even just a 'family' blog where our family members can see pictures and hear stories.

Maybe we just call it the misadventures of motherhood... I don't know. I think it will happen more organically, just like the beginning of the blog. Who knows if I will even have a brain to type down thoughts in the next couple of months.

I do however feel really strongly about infertility and that this blog has really helped me cope with the depression I was feeling and the loneliness that came with it. I don't see myself just waking away from it. Like, well.. I made it.. so I am out. That's not me, I am still enraged when I hear celebrity stories about their fertility and they deny using fertility treatments and act like the thought of it is so disturbing to them. (Ya, I am talking to you Mariah Carrey) I still own my struggle and feel passion towards letting the world know infertility isn't an issue to be swept under the carpet.

With that being said, I really want to take time to say Thank You. If you look at my blog you don't see a lot of people writing in the comment section. And that's okay, cause I know that the majority of people reading my blog don't know how to leave comments or don't have accounts to login in to do it. But I know people are reading. I get emails from friends and family and sometimes when they call they mention something from the blog and in my head I am thinking "I don't remember telling them that, oh they read that in the blog." This blog even connected to me to another infertile in Seattle and we were able to go on a couple lunch outings to talk about her future journey into IVF. And on the side of the blog there is a tracker and I see people reading the blog as far away as Europe.

Thank you for reading. I find a lot of comfort knowing that when I hit publish my words are being read. I feel validated.

I won't stop the blog come Monday, it feels to good to be heard, even if the person listening is a stranger.


  1. You go Melissa and we are waiting to see the baby. Thank you so much for sharing all of this adventure with so many, you are amazing. I'll be thinking of you, hubby and the baby on Monday. Post lots of pictures and stats. You are all in my prayers.

  2. Congratulations! I havent read your blog since I got back and lost the embies, because it would be to hard on me but I happened to come across it today saved in my fav folder and figured that you had your baby by now. I just wanted to wish you the best with the C-section!! Im sure it all went fine, enjoy your baby and thank you for all of your past help. Enjoy this for those of us who cant.
