Happy Thanksgiving!

In spite of all the hardships we have endured with our infertility journey, I still have a lot to be thankful for and should not forget that.

  • My amazing husband- Brian has been my rock through all of this.  He always stays positive and reassures me that one day we will have a baby.  He even cooks me dinner every night so that is one less thing that I have to think about!
  • My wonderful family- Even though all of my family lives in Minnesota and Brian and I are in Colorado they give me lots of support.  The smallest things like an email, phone call or text message from them makes me know that they are here for us.
  • My 2 furbabies- My puppy and kitty can't talk back to me but they sure are good listeners!  Animals seem to know when you need them.
  • My friends- Sharing my thoughts is one of my coping methods and my friends have been amazing listeners!  Most people do not know a lot about infertility (I didn't either!) but it helps me to share whats going on with my treatments.  I don't think I could have made it through these hard times without those people who have supported me along the way.

For me, Thanksgiving has been a day to reflect on recent events and realize that I do have a lot to be thankful for.

Hi Jessica Anne! We were cycling around the same time this summer on the fertility community boards. Every so often I check in on the girls over there, and I saw your link today. I started blogging earlier this month. Feel free to check me out:

Hey Amanda! Thanks for checking in on me. I often check on others that have had failed cycles also. What is your username on fertility community? Thanks for sharing your blog too. I see you just had a transfer. Good Luck with that! I hope to be reading about your good news on your blog soon!
