When I first started looking online for information about conceiving, I thought I would mostly informational websites or tools. But once I found a community of women like me I knew there was so much more. These are women that I know. Maybe I've never met them in person, but I know them. Perhaps at a deeper level than most people I interact with everyday. They are me.

I've stayed around the message boards not just because there is good information, but good friends. I relish hearing about their joys and daily lives and feel heartbroken with them during the trials. Their joys are my joys and their trials are my trials. I want us all to get our BFPs and have beautiful healthy babies.

And I feel privileged and honored when they get excited about my happy news or upset about my bad news. So few people understand what IF is like that is is gratifying to hear others who understand, or maybe not quite understand but know when support is needed and how to provide it.

So that's why I'll be spending tomorrow with my friend here. I want to get to the jump up and down exciting part of this with you. Good luck.


  1. Awww... you made me cry all over again, Missy! You are so sweet! I feel the same way and I can't wait to see you get your BFP and jump up and down with you, too! :)

    Thanks for the post, and for your excitement - this little bean seems to have fans all over the world, and it is so humbling to know!

  2. Isn't the internet a wonderful thing? Imagine what women had to go through all alone 20 years ago. Ugh.
    I'm here from ICLW...I look forward to following your story.

  3. Go check out my friend Kim at

    She is going through IF as well and is a GREAT supporter of others who are as well. She is very upfront about what she's facing. Just one more wonderful woman to lean on in this difficult time.
