Dude. As pregnancy and infertility related drafts pile up in my blog list I struggle to know what's appropriate to publish here. I wonder if anyone actually wants to know these things or is this about me sorting out my life changes through writing? As a blog reader myself, I've spent years reading about others' infertility and pregnancy journeys. From adoption to pregnancy announcements to birth stories to baby's first blow out, I eat it up. My very favorite stories to read have been Design Mom's series on pregnancy, childbirth, adoption and growing a family. But I'm shamelessly shy about my own story. Maybe it's because it has been such a private and painful part of my life. It's a bit daunting to open the doors even a wee bit on this chapter of our lives. I do find that my journal writing is much much better when I know an audience, albeit small and mostly family and close friends, will be reading it. So there's the struggle. Woe is the life of an emotional pregnant woman, I tell you what.
