fertility friday | community blog post

happy friday! 
we've made it. almost. 

i've been wracking my brain to figure out the best way to stay involved in this community after our little miracle has arrived. and i have an idea. every friday, i will post something for the infertility community and host a link up. the link up will allow all of us to stay connected, share information and support each other. sometimes i will be sharing some breaking news that I read about infertility, doing a book review, highlighting a fellow blogger who is in need of support, hosting a giveaway or providing some value to this community.

if you'd like to join in the fun, just write about something anything related to fertility and link your post up on this blog every week starting next friday. feel free to grab the button below and share when posting for the link up.


so to start us off…
i have to share a little something that i've been working on with my lovely friend chelsea….it's a community blog post featuring some of my favorite bloggers. have you been held captive by a lie that you have believed as truth during your infertility journey (or just throughout your life)? i certainly have. in this post, each of these amazing ladies share one of the great lies that they have defeated (or continue to battle) on this journey.


this is a great post that you can read over at chelsea's blog Starbucks, Peace, and the Pursuit of a Baby. a big thanks to chels for all of her hard work organizing this post! 
hope you go check it out and enjoy your weekend!

This is amazing and I can't wait to join! I'll be honest I love my normal 5 on Friday Favorites posts too, but at the same time, I like to keep true to the meaning of my blog and infertility. Can't wait! Great idea!

What a great idea, Jessah! I love the idea of a fertility link up for you even after you've got your baby!

I loved your addition to the group post. I know that was a big one for me... believing I was alone until I found all of you!

Happy Friday!

I remember when we chatted about doing this kind of link up together about a year ago. Whatever happened with that?!? Glad you were able to bring it to fruition. I have no doubt it will bring comfort to so many who find themselves in this awful, often hopeless place. I'm thankful for this community.

I remember you giving up then un-giving up so many times and for you to finally have your little one healthy and on his or her way I am so thrilled for you! I'm in my 6th year and still doing IUIs wanting to quit but wondering what if it's one more iui before we get pregnant? What if IVF will actually bring us our family. Trying to keep fighting and your story helps me do that.

Hey I just read your piece on Chesea's post. Infertility is so isolating - there is no common thread for others to know you are a sufferer too. Your post was full of empathy - I hope you are spending time being at peace with your pregnancy!
