disclaimer to my fellow infertiles.
Here comes the disclaimer post, the one that comes with pregnancy announcements on an infertility blog. You know those moments when you’re both so, so happy for someone; yet so, so sad when reading about other infertiles success stories? If anyone understands first-hand both the pain and complete happiness of seeing that “our baby is coming” announcement on a fellow ‘infertility’ blog, it’s this girl. After six years of dealing with infertility the number of infertility bloggers who were trying to have a baby, right along with me, that graduated and moved on were too many to number.
I always appreciated their disclaimer posts; mentioning they were going to post about their pregnancies and babies going forward. I loved them for saying “I understand” if you need to move on. After so many years I assumed it would never be me FINALLY saying to fellow infertile sisters still battling it out that I understand if you move on.
Because 15.5 weeks into the gestation of our baby girl I am ready to move this blog on from all things infertility and into our new life. Dear gracious, don’t be confused, I am not going to be a mommy blogger (what is this, 2009?!). But, I do plan to post updates about my baby as she grows, family life and all things Robinson.
With that, be forewarned that there will likely be all manner of twee and obnoxious posts regarding what I think is my perfect little baby growing away in her golden rented uterus. Because the amusing stories are already piling up, once our GC starts showing? Holy goodness the fun we will have!
For now, stick around if your heart is in a place where it can be here and not feel awful. If your heart isn’t quite there, just know as joyful as my heart is there is part of it that will always ache for my fellow infertiles. One thing is true, and will always be true, the pain of infertility doesn’t disappear just because there is a baby that enters your life. The pang of infertility still gets the better of me some days. There are days I want to scream about the fact I can’t grow my own baby girl…. And I will likely write some about that.
All of that to say this: I actually have another blog, with my sisters. We are all infertile, as I’ve mentioned. We decided to start a blog together since we all have different stories and perspectives; all have different ways we were ushered into motherhood. We’d love it if you would follow along over there for encouragement, support, guest blog posts and everything related to IVF, IUI, adoption, gestational surrogacy and beyond.
