Entering the Blogosphere

I must say I never thought I'd be here. Struggling to get and stay pregnant has changed my life in so many ways. This is just the latest addition to my coping strategies. Sometimes the thoughts and feelings seem like they are just going to bubble up inside me forever. Maybe sending them out into the void of cyber-space will help calm the storm somehow. I think I'd prefer to allow my story to leak out over time like it does in real life rather than write some sort of dossier of my life in this, my first and somewhat hesitant post. I think just enough to explain the title of this blog will suffice.

I've been pregnant 4 times in my life, and I don't have a single thing to show for it. Thus, I'm wondering "Oh, Baby, where art thou?" Where did you go? Why didn't you stay with me so I could hold you in my belly and then in my arms. You were loved from the start.

If you choose to share this journey with me then welcome. It would be a blessing if my search for baby could somehow comfort or help others along the way. If it doesn't, that's okay. I'm just looking for a way to stay sane on this insane journey through infertility and recurrent miscarriage.

That's why I started my blog too, really, something to help me stay sane, but also in the hope that what I learned could be passed on to others in the same situation. I wanted to help. Or just be a support.

Welcome. :)There's a great community out there.

Welcome to the world of blogging :) On Lost & Found you're listed as having a bicornuate/arcuate uterus, but I can't see it mentioned in your blog anywhere.

k77 ~ I do have what the radiologist called a bicornuate, but my RE insisted was an arcuate uterus. I guess it just hasn't come up in my stream of consciousness for the blog yet. I mentioned it to Mel of stirrup-queens in an email. I'm looking forward to a follow-up appt. I have with a doc at CCRM on 2/6 to see what he says about the whole thing. Thanks for stopping by!

Good luck with the appt. In the meantime I recommend you join

You have too much big stuff to deal with without having an uncertain diagnosis over your head.
