It's A Small World, After All

So today I met a friend for coffee (decaf for me).

She is not a friend that I see very often, but she does know (a little bit) about our infertility issues since we do talk on the phone a lot. She knew that I was pregnant, but this was the first time we had been face-to-face since the cycle started.

As we were talking about Pregnancy After Loss, she mentioned that she had another friend that had found some good resources online.

"In fact," she said, pulling at sheet out of her purse, "I wrote a few down for you."

This was the list that she handed me:

www.spals.com

www.pregnancyafteraloss.com

www.alittlepregnant.com

And. . .

www.takingthestatisticalbullet.blogspot.com

Holy cow.

I am a resource.

Not so boring, huh?

Do you think it could have been her way of telling you she knows about your blog?

I do agree that you are a resource for pregnancy after a loss. But of all the blogs out there, yours was on the list. It would make me paranoid!

Holy crap! That's awesome! And ironic. And would give me the heebie jeebies a little. I'm with my reality - do you think she's telling you she knows about your blog? You are an excellent resource but it's super ironic that she would just happen upon yours. Whatever though, either way it's very cool!

That is so funny! It's almost as if someone quoted you - to you!

I miss coffee. Kind of a lot. Let's not talk about it.

Hee! The world is a small place sometimes, isn't it? Congratulations on making it to official "RESOURCE" status, my dear!

Ack! What about anonymity?

That is too funny!

That is kind of exciting. It is funny how your friend handed you your own blogspot as a resource. Did you tell her it was your blog or just smile and talk about something else.

Jen said...

Wow that is really crazy. Do you think she knows that it is your blog? Or perhaps a friend of your friend is reading right now...weird.

That is sooo ironic! Ha!

So she doesn't realize that it's you?

Eeek!!

I can vouch for SPALS... it was my daily lifeline after the loss of my daughter 10 years ago (before blogs really existed). I "met" some wonderful women there.

Hey, Katie!

I can't find your email with your phone number, but I'm worried about you. It's been awhile...everything okay?
