All Right, I'll Stay :)

Oh, you guys. I am blushing from all the nice things said to me on my post about what to do with this blog.

I honestly don't think I could step away from blogging 100%, no matter what. I am kind of addicted. It's like therapy for me. And it's free. Just being able to put everything out there and get a comment back that I am not totally insane or alone in this crazy adventure called life makes me feel better.

So, for the time being, I am staying here in this space, and will continue to blog about my little family and our corner of the world. I did reword my intro and title subset. Let me know if you think it needs any further tweaking. I thought about a title change, but couldn't really think of anything that I like better. If anybody has a brilliant thought, please let me know.

And every once in awhile, I will have a random infertility thought, like today's gem: Will I always think like an infertile? I mean, gah, two RLBs* later, done with building my own family, and I still react strangely to pregnancy announcements. What is up with that?!

I don't know, when I hear about pregnancies I feel a twinge of something, be it guilt, or anger but I think it has more to do with my baby making days are officially over (got my tubes tied) so it might be feeling that loss in a way? So perhaps your feelings don't necessarily have to do with being infertile but rather with knowing that your pregnancy journey is officially over.

I get insanely jealous when non-blog people announce their pregnancies. Blog people- I have no problem, totally thrilled. Non-blog people? I still get sick to my stomach and the baby is already nine months old. You'd think after a year and a half, I'd be over that one. (It's not the only one either.)

I'm glad you are staying here! I don't think you need any further tweaking either, that looks great to me.

I like your title!! You could have 50 kids and would still have a history of RPL, that will NEVER change, and Gummy and the others will always have been loved babies that never made it. Glad you will stay. :)

It is what it is said...

So glad you are sticking around. Since you have two VSC (Very Small Children) I'm looking forward to learning from your tips and exploits.

I suppose you could change your blog title to match the description to something like "Finally Dodged the Statistical Bullet" or "Done Taking the Statistical Bullet" or "Finally Dodging the Statistical Bullet". I don't know...just some thoughts.

Awesome! I'm glad you're sticking around. I understand (somewhat) the blog confusion that happens when you're used to writing about IF and loss and then you have your miracle baby. What you went through is still a part of you and I'm sure it shapes who you are now as a parent. I like reading your perspective, especially now as I'm close to welcoming my baby after six losses.

I believe that you and I still have a story to tell. Keep telling yours, and I'll keep reading. :)

Yeah dude, leaving would be weird. I look forward to reading your posts and I am "comfy" with TTSB link.....also, I still get pissed when people who are fertile announce being pg even though I have 4 year old twins! It's the monkey that never gets off your back. We are broken for life but we can ya! p.s. I changed my photo blog to a beauty blog...check it and add me!!
