Who knew??

Who knew that the birds and the bees could be so complicated? 

Who knew that A + B doesn't always equal C?

Who knew that it was SO HARD for one sperm to meet one egg? 

Who knew that MCB would spend thousands of $$ on birth control pills over 15 years of her life only to find out that she can't really get pregnant the old fashioned way?

All of these things came as quite a shock to me.  Something else that came as a shock...there are A LOT of people that deal with infertility.  I guess it's something that you don't think about until it affects you.  I've been lucky enough to find a great support system online.  And more recently, I've learned that two real-life friends are struggling with IF as well.  While I wouldn't wish If on my worst enemy, it's nice to have someone to talk to, cry with, etc. that really "gets it".

  1. I'm here from ICLW! Who could have predicted the irony of spending all that time and money on preventing pregnancy only to turn around and spend all that time and money on creating a pregnancy? It's really amazing. And sad and hard.


Have you seen my baby carriage?
