Speak out, Speak up


So Andrea at Bella and Her Fella was kind enough to give me this award for speaking up on the topic of infertility.  I am so honored to have been picked by such a great blogger.  Her journey has not been easy but she is navigating infertility like a champion.  And I know that ultimately she will win the battle.  I don't think I deserve this though.  Yes, I do talk about IF on my blog.  I do wear my infertility's common thread.  But I don't really talk about infertility.  I only just opened up about this to my immediate family.  And it is wonderful sharing with them.  My parents are just amazing.  They ask all the right questions and make me feel so supported.  And my brother cheers me on every time we talk.  However, I don't talk to my friends about this.  I sneak out of work to my appointments.  I still haven't talked to anyone in the waiting room at my RE clinic.  I don't speak out or speak up.  Not for real!  But I guess that isn't really the point.  I guess just talking about this at all (be it only online or for real) and sharing my battle in some capacity merits getting this award.  That being said I want to nominate some women who are also fighting IF and who I pray will win the battle.     I nominate  my TTTC sister Deb at Yes, I tried that too...
The Worms Inconceivable
Peachy Kate at Peachy does IVF

You SO deserve it! I don't shout about my IF from the rooftops either, but we do get the word out to those we feel most comfortable with. Thanks for your kind words and I know you will also win this battle!

Thank you so much for thinking of me. It means the world to me to have fellow womb warriors to fight beside me! You are so kind. I am rooting for you, I just know this is your cycle. **Wipes a tear seriously** ((Big Hugs))
