Happy Blogoversary to Me!

I almost missed it! One year ago today, I started this blog. I had been thinking about it for a while, but like so many of us, it was Mel at Stirrup Queens who got me started.

I had been exploring how people dealt with having a child through donor eggs and landed on one of Mel's early guest blogs on the subject. That started a correspondence which finally gave me the extra boost to get started blogging my journey. The funny thing is, I really thought I was doing a generic "infertility blog" although I was really starting a "donor egg blog". Just 2 months before retrieval, I was still hoping I was going to find a way to avoid donor eggs. I'm guess I am good at denial.

Then it all happened pretty fast and here I am, one year later just two days before my official due date and still hoping everything will be ok. Not just with the baby being healthy, but that I will someday be ok with the path we have taken to get here.

Thank you to all the people who have listened to me (often on the same topic again and again) and continued to offer your support. For those of you who have been steady lurkers, I hope you find some value in my thoughts and experiences.

If you haven't made your guess on the previous post, I encourage you to take a stab at it - anonymously for any lurkers who would like to de-lurk for a bit. I will be posting the answer in a couple of days if I am not otherwise occupied.

I think we all find support and strength in one another's stories. I never knew this "IF blog" world existed, but I am glad it does. It makes me feel less lonely, and in a way, cared for by people I'll probably never meet! Thank you for sharing your story with me!
