why babyincredible?

I’ve spent the past few years “blogging” (I really, REALLY hate that term…”Oh, do you blog?” “You have to check out my blog.” “Bloggity-blogblogblog.”  It is an outright disgusting word) at various sites, and have had little success, because the only thing I ever wanted to write about was my struggle with infertility.  I guess I feel like I’ve struggled, because I felt like I was being a downer always talking about it, or that I was alienating a certain part of my audience by only writing about how freaking difficult it is to make a baby. So, I decided that for awhile I was going to give up on writing in those other spaces until I’ve gotten my fill here and can move on to other things.  If I do decide to write about “non-fertility” issues, I’ll write somewhere else, but for now, am thinking that’s the only place my head will be anyway, so I may as well use it for something worthwhile (well, I at least think it’s worthwhile).  I don’t want to sound needy, or pathetic or anything, but let’s be honest. People who write blogs (yuck) are reaching out, trying to connect, if even in a small way,(otherwise we’d just write in journals, right?) so, be a pal and comment every now and again. It’s hard to deal with crap like this, so it’s nice to know if the people that are reading are having similar struggles/joys…

    Infertility is a hard road… no doubt about it. I don’t know where I would be without the support I have received from blogging and from the IF forum I post to. Good for your for reaching out!!

    I just found your blog through Tag Surf… off to read more about your journey…. (((hugs)))

    thanks. seriously. it helps to have people out there that understand how hard it is. i feel like everyone i know is pregnant, or just had a baby. even the people i know that have been struggling are pregnant. it’s so frustrating, and it’s so sad. i don’t know how to escape the emptiness that seems to accompany this process, how to get away from this overwhelming sense of lack…if you have a blog, i’d love to visit!

  3. errin,
    i really am looking foward to reading more about your journey. (in)fertility blows and i wanna be here to help you walk the path to your baby.


  4. I’ve been thinking about you and Vegor lately… probably because of your occasional blogs and status updates. I wish the best for you and occasionally include you in my prayers… take from that whatever you will.

  5. Lots of love to you friend. You are braver than most I will say that.

    Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I understand! I’m dealing with infertility as well (secondary, I happen to have 3 children already, which puts me in a unique but still lonely position) and just decided to start an IF blog (inthequietheart.wordpress.com) to get some of these things off my chest. I have a regular blog (and I hate that word too!) full of homeschooling and music and regular life “stuff” but have just started to admit that I need the support of other women struggling with infertility while everyone around me in real life seems to be pregnant at the moment. Anyway, I’m here!
