National Infertility Week

Is everyone enjoying basking in the glow of their IF this week? I didn't think so.

Ellen and I decided to drink tequila and wear cute non maternity dresses and stay out all night to celebrate. I think it's appropriate! The V List jumped out of planes. I don't have the guts for that!

I actually posted Resolve's Infertility Etiquette on my Facebook and have been getting positive feedback. Of course at the beginning I DID say if you don't like it don't read or comment, so I don't know if anyone hated it. After a huge fight broke out with the Infertility VS Paraplegia post... I went ahead and put a disclaimer. I also got my first "you're too young for infertility" comment yesterday.

If you've been following me on Twitter you will have seen lots of instances where I have just wanted to kick IF, or whoever is closest's, butt. First my mother went on for 30 minutes about every little detail of a baby shower I skipped. I skipped 2 this weekend, and I'm PROUD OF IT! My board's Question Of The Day was what plans do we have for Mother's Day. I responded Tequila ;) Also you will see a Retweet I tweeted of a girl who thinks the little cups that you put condiments in would be perfect of pee cups for dipping HPTs. Thank you for that, I'm on it! Also I am in a race to beat In Due Time to 100 followers, so if you have Twitter, FOLLOW ME!!!!

I also said some pretty big prayers last night for Stellan, April, and Kayleigh. (and of course my prospective child that may or may not be implanting tomorrow... <---awesome link BTW)

Tell me how you are celebrating IF week!

10 people that love me told me so:

I love your post sweetie! I really want to spread the word of infertility this week and help my "Fertile" friends try to understand a "little" of what we go through. Love your post and I can't wait to read many more :)

Your post is so informative. Nice linkage too! Have fun at work! Love you!

Nic said...

I pee in a shot glass for my HPT! Sorry, dont know why I had the urge to share that with you! Lol!

mrsmoore08 said...

I'm with Nic.... I use a shot glass as well.

I pondering posting resolve's article on facebook after reading that you did, but in the end you are much braver than I am. It makes me mad that I feel uncomfortable coming "out of the closet" to facebook friends- but I am a private person. I settled for Happy NIAW! as my status. Baby steps.

I want to have that IF Etiquette article framed above my desk at work, and if I didn't share an office, I probably would. I do think I'm going to email to a couple of friends as it explains things a whole lot better than I can.

Nina said...

Well, for the moment, I don't have any plans, but your tequila idea sounds good! I would find some good strawberry mix and a blender, though.

Jill said...

no plans, and no RL friend to celebrate with :( I might have my husband take me out on a spur of the moment dinner that involves lots of wine, though :)

I have been meaning to read RESOLVE's site this week. Thanks for reminding me.

Thanks for your sweet comment on Katie's blog! You're a doll! :)

I can't imagine the heartache that you experience with TTC issues. I wish I could give you a baby today!

I have a few friends who had a really difficult time conceiving and all three eventually became moms with some medical/drug help. I hope that I can add to you to that list VERY soon.

Tequila sounds about right to me. :)
