Please don't forget about my #infertility

Today has been a busy day at work. Really the last week, including the weekend has been pretty fast paced and B.U.S.Y. 

Since I want to spend some quality time with the husband tonight I thought today's infertility post should be a re-share of a post I wrote a few months ago for SpouseBuzz. It was a post that got way more attention and comments than I thought it would. {I did not read the comments as I know most of them are not great. Be warned if you do read them, people are mean.}

I usually find the online community I entered many years ago to be a place to find encouragement and inspiration. As a woman who just turned 30 it has become normal to wake up to new Instagram, Facebook and blog posts with women announcing their pregnancy, in both my online community world as well as my in-real-life friends and family.

But these bloggers and other creative women I once went to as a source of inspiration are quickly added to the list of blogs/posts to avoid.
The reality is I cannot stomach another blog about the joys of pregnancies or worse the complaints of pregnancy.

{I wrote this post in February and had it published in April, I am at a much better place now. I'll be blogging more about that this month.}

I totally empathize with that entire post. We are not on 3 years yet, but a year and a half. My best friend just had her 3rd baby. She was nice enough to break it to me first. However, I still have not been to see her or the new baby. I'm sure this makes me some kind of monster. But I can't do it right now. I just can't. They had two girls already and then decided to just 'hand it over to God' if they had any more. And it killed me. Fortunately, she is understanding. But it doesn't make it any easier.

Um, you are one heck of a strong chick, Jen! I read those comments and was crushed by some of them. I completely understand what you're going through (we just found out kids aren't in our future) and it's so hard when people are going through joys and you are expected to celebrate with them. I too have unfollowed lots of blogs to avoid jealousy, anger, etc. It's just easier to be built up with positivity and not beat myself up over something that God's not planning for me (at the moment or forever).

I've been enjoying your 31 days posts and I'm grateful you are sharing them.
