Happy Belated Blogoversary, Blog!

What? How did I miss this important Anniversary? August 13 of 2009 I wrote my first post. Oh, how hopeful and innocent I was!

All I knew is that I wanted to become a mom and that Mr. Jem didn't have enough swimmers to make it happen. This was before genetic testing, acupuncture, more SA, first injections, hyperstimulation, TESE, ER (twice), FET, MTX (twice), and on and on (and on and on...).

It's been quite a year! Thanks for all the support, for wiping my tears, for giving me hugs, and for sharing laughs with me along the way.

I hope a year from now I will have a child in my arms.

Congrats on one year! You've come a long way, and while you aren't where you hoped you'd be, you've learned a great deal about how strong you are and that, while not a baby, is certainly something to celebrate.

Happy Blogoversy! And so true about how innocent we all were at some point in the past. It makes me want to reach out to the newly infertile and let them know how innocent they are and how far they will go - but, really, there's no way for them to find out except to go through it themselves. Anyhow, wishing you lots of luck in whatever is next!!

I wish you'd stopped blogging after a few posts because you were pregnant (or, you know, moved on to a different kind of blog), but as it is, I'll join the others in hoping your next anniversary is one filled with rejoicing.

Happy Blogoversary! I know how you feel, I thought I would be a mum by now when I started down the IVF road last year but still no luck and about to start IVF#3. Good luck to you with your journey and your decision making!
