Yesterday I was struggling with the idea of blogging at all, especially in the world of ALI (adoption, loss and infertility) and writing about my life with out offending anyone. Today I feel great, partly because of the incredibly sweet comments I got yesterday and partly because I happened upon the most perfect of posts this morning.
Apparently I’m not the only PIF (pregnant after infertility) blogger who is feeling torn! Elphaba has put together a blogroll for PIFs, much like Mel's blogroll for IFs. She’s calling it P.A.I.L (parenting/pregnant after infertility & loss).
I’m so glad someone finally put together a group where we can feel supported in both our pregnancies/parenting and in our histories of infertility/loss. It really is a unique situation to be in, but it turns out, not as unique when you find a whole list of bloggers in your same shoes.
I really feel like this will allow me to feel free to blog about not only the facts but also the feelings (good and bad) that come along with pregnancy and eventually parenting after infertility. The truth is sometimes its not all sunshine and lollipops and it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who feels that way.
**on a side note, I think it’s a little funny that adding my name to a list has given me such a sense of freedom, but I guess we all just strive to belong somewhere?.... **
