February 04, 2005



I feel like I could have written your post, and I've tried. Maybe not so eloquently, but here I am at 30 weeks and I still think that some things are too good to be true so I keep waiting for rug to be pulled out from under me. We get so used to bad news, and we don't want to get our hopes up, plus we know too much about all the bad that can happen.

On the other hand, we have to keep the belief that sometimes good things do happen. There's Tertia and Julie with their babies.

I can't make the fear go away, or I would have for myself. But, when you do get hit by feelings of joy, don't supress them but allow yourself a mini vacation from the worry and fear.


I don't consider the expression of fear and fragility a complaint. For me, the key is: does the blog read specifically like a pregnant infertile's blog? Or does it read like anyone's pregnancy blog? If the latter, well, it's just not something I can deal with -- I hear enough about that in real life. If the former, I may not be able to relate, but it's still part of the infertile experience and therefore relevant (except on very bad days when all hope is gone).

Either way, I care about you, LG, and I'm sorry about your fears.


Well said. Very well said.

I had this belief that once I got to the 2nd trimester I would feel this sense of relief, this giant deflating of fear, of apprehension and of all this crap I carry around deep inside. But it didn't go away, and I think the reason is that you're suddenly 100 times more aware of what you can lose.

Just because I'm not actively tc at the moment, and am pregnant for NOW, I still have 25 more weeks to go...and until then, I'm still in the game.

Wishing you the best and thanking you for this post.
