Infertility news


Just read this article and was completely shocked.

I checked out the website of the infertility clinic we go to and noted that our Doctor has posted about it on the blog page

What are your thoughts on this?

Alert – seque upcoming

I also admit that I watch Desperate Housewives and one of the story arcs is that years ago there was a baby mix up.

I always jump to worse case scenario and wonder what I would do in those situations.  I can’t event imagine.

I’m going (more) crazy…..


…… wondering if I’m getting period cramps or not. If it’s going to arrive, should be any day.

My prescription for birth control hasn’t arrived yet….I am putting off phoning the clinic to ask for it.

I have one pregnancy test waiting for me at home….I keep trying to delay using it, not wanting to face what it will read out and prolonging when I use it in case that increases my chances. I didn’t know I was so superstitious until this whole “infertility experience”

Self Magazine Article – Breaking the Silence on Infertility


Very interesting article I have started to read. Made me realize that I have been extremely quiet in my day to day life about revealing the infertility struggle we are facing.

I have told my family which was met with typical family reception. No one talks about it to me which is weird except for a few painful questions every now and then. The last one from my sister in law – “are you pregnant?” No, duh I just told you guys we are having problems with that? Or the inappropriate comments from my mum.

I am opening up online as I need for this “STUFF” to go somewhere but I haven’t told my in-laws! Most of our friends don’t know. I feel like I lead a different life!

What about you? Do you have varying levels of disclosure online and/or in your day to day life?

Monday – Friday


Ok, made it through the weekend!!

Now at least work will take my mind off things. Although my love is going for surgery tomorrow on his sinuses which is a bit worrying

This weekend was rainy and miserable. We did a fair amount of renovation work at the one bedroom apartment we are getting ready to put on the market.

It’s been recently announced that the province of Quebec will pay for IVF treatments. I wonder if the rest of Canada will get on board.
