It's been a bit of an emotional day here. I plan on posting a full entry about this morning's meeting with the doctor soon but for now just a quick slice of funny and some insight into why I'm sure that no matter what happens, A (my husband) and I will be ok.
A - how long do we need to use condoms for?
K - crap, I almost completely forgot about that. I'm glad you remembered, with 11 follicles that would have given a whole new meaning to unsafe sex.
A - man, what would you even call that? Elevenuplets?
K - my uterus explode-ples?
A - Jon and Kate plus fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck

Then my infertility reminded me that there's no way I can be that much of a contributing member of society.

So far the response has been overwhelmingly positive. I'm hoping to post something every day to raise awareness. I also changed my cover photo to one of the awesome ones Keiko from The Infertility Voice made up. You can find them here: http://theinfertilityvoice.com/niaw-2013/Today marks the start of National Infertility Awareness Week. Infertility is a life changing, devastating, invisible disease. 1 in 8 couples endure painful, invasive, and expensive medical intervention, just for the hope of having a child.Couples like us.So I’m coming out about our struggle this week to raise awareness. Suffering quietly makes it easy for society to dismiss this struggle as unimportant and perpetuates the cultural-silence and shame infertility patients are faced with at diagnosis.This year’s theme is “Join the Movement” and I’m joining by speaking up.Learn more at http://resolve.org/niaw
