No, not for me, unfortunately 🙂
Sadly and happily my “coming out” on Facebook and our Adventures in Marriage blog has prompted several women also struggling with infertility to contact me. I say sadly because NO ONE should have to go through this. I say happily because all of these women have been, for the most part, suffering in silence, alone with only their husband’s support which, as we all know, can at times be frustrating. Just like I feel about my friendships with my bloggie friends, I am saddened that it is infertility that has brought us together and not a Mommy’s Day Out Play Group.
While I can’t take away their pain and suffering, I can offer them support, friendship and occasionally tap into my vast pool of infertility resources via this blog. One friend, D., has been struggling to stay pregnant for two years. She has suffered numerous early miscarriages and is now facing the vague and daunting label of unexplained infertility & unexplained repeat loss. D. feels it is time for a second opinion and, hopefully, some fresh options.
This is where you all come in: D. needs some RE recommendations in the Birmingham, Ala. area. I know of at least one IF blogger who lives in Birmingham, and am certain there are others, and people who know people in that area. D. does not blog, nor is she gung-ho about me pumping her email address all over the blogosphere. She does read Scrambled Eggs, though, and would VERY much appreciate any recommendations (and positive success stories!) you may be able to share in my comment feed. Or you can email me at Belle.Hineman@yahoo.com with recommendations and I’ll pass them along to her. Thank you in advance for your help!
In other news, I’m still hormonal and still have not located diary and gluten-free cake. It’s a terrible predicament, for sure 🙂 I’m also hot this cycle, and everything in my body seems dry. My throat is dry, my skin is dry, even the air I am exhaling seems excessively dry. Oh, and I’m tired. So. Freaking. Tired. I sure hope all this means that my ute is building one glorious lining.
Now I’m going to meet the Professor for a lunch date. Hormonal Belle is not at all excited about more tuna salad so she will splurge and eat out 🙂
