B is for Boring

I fear my blog is getting boring. This started as a miscarriage blog, then became a fertility treatment blog. Things were always interesting with cycling, I felt as if I had something to say.

I always was a little sad when the newly pregnant drifted away after they got pregnant. I wanted updates, I wanted to know about life on "the other side."

Now I kind of understand the silence. There just isn't a lot to say. Sure, I can complain about another ache or pain, but that annoys me. If it wasn't for the fear that the cramping instilled in me, it wouldn't bother me. I am fully prepared to take on any discomfort for this baby. And I know for those of you out there that aren't pregnant, it really must grate to hear someone going on and on about round ligament pains and the like.

I can talk about my latest craving or weirdest pregnancy dreams, but I wonder if anyone actually finds it interesting. Since my husband seems to be getting a little tired of my preoccupation with my changing body, I sincerely doubt that readers are captivated by it.

This is not to say that I won't be blogging anymore. And I am certainly addicted to keeping up with my blog friends and their lives. I just might have to reach for better material. Any suggestions?

I love your posts, even if you think they're boring. Trust me, your no news is good news. :)

I find all that so called unimportant stuff very interesting. Heck I even put how many times during the day I felt the baby kick in my blog. Look at it this way, this blog is a way for you to document everything and then print it out when your child is 16 and being snotty!

You worked hard for this - enjoy it as much as possible! Just as when you were writing about the struggles - there are goint to be times still when you just need the catharsis of "writing it all out." This is your blog, this is your life - it is only fitting that your posts follow along with the direction your path is going.

Ugh, I know what you mean.

Now that I'm taking a long break from treatments, I feel like I have nothing to talk about.

It kind of makes it hard to blog.

I literally love reading everything you have to say-I worry about you when you go too long between posts. Can I just tell you that one of my RL friends who reads my blog told me at happy hour last week that she is also addicted to YOUR blog?! I was so proud that one of my RL friends knew one of my blogger buddies. We actually talked about how fabulous YOU are over cocktails. What a world!!!
*hugs*

enjoy your random boring posts for what there're worth. You can always include you latest shopping expedition or book read or recipe attempted or just random thots :)

I love your posts, too. I just like keeping up with your life. But I know what you mean. I've been irritating myself lately.

I know exactly what you mean. It's like when people ask me how the pregnancy is going these days, and I'm like "uh, I guess I'm still pregnant. I've had no signs to the contrary".

I think the beginning of 2nd tri might be a dull time in the sense that you're waiting on the big u/s, you're no longer sick, you're not really preparing for the baby yet, and you can't feel them moving. I started my blog just to journal about my life, and one component of that was IF and now pregnancy. So I try not to become too wrapped up in the latter and blog about the other things going on. But of course that is easier said than done lately.

Although I can't relate to some of it, I still enjoy hearing about your experiences. This has been a long, hard road for you and you deserve to put it all out there however you see fit!

I also understand what someone else said - with my taking a break while trying to save up for IVF, I feel like my own blog has gotten really far away from its intended use. But I still post my boring ol' stuff there all the same.

embrace the boring! boring and normal are the best times in our lives! (i realized this far too late -- after my mom was diagnosed with cancer and life never went back to normal.) and don't fear -- none of us are bored!

your post made me think of the episode of "the l word" i watched the other night -- one of the couples gets pregnant, and their friends stage an intervention because they were getting boring. very cute. may we all soon be blessed with "boring" blogs!! :)

I always look forward to what aspect of your pregnancy you are sharing with us with your recent blog postings. I don't think one bit that you're boring. :D

I love biology and don't mind hearing about your changing body. On a bad day I can't guarantee I'll read all the sorted details but on good days I will (and enjoy it).
