Saying Goodbye: Infertility and Coping

winnie the pooh, goodbyesYou know how sometimes you’re doing something that begins to feel unhealthy and you know that something truly has to give?

Well, I’ve reached that point.

Today is my last official day here on Being Pregnant.

I have been writing about pregnancy and infertility since April and had no idea that our struggles would go on this long.

It took us a year to get pregnant with our first baby, five months for the baby we lost, and just two months for our son.

We began trying in January.

And I’m weary.

Though we will continue to try for another baby, I just don’t feel like I can write about it on as regular a basis as I have been.

So, the lovely folks at Babble have offered to let me move over to Kid Scoop, where I can write about the joy in my life rather than the sadness and struggle. (You canĀ read about my plans for my posts there and my fun new series here.)

And as much as I know that this is a healthy thing for me, my heart feels heavy that I won’t be here for those of you who are also struggling with infertility. I worry that you’ll feel that I abandoned you in some way and for that I am so so incredibly sorry.

I will still write about our journey on in these small moments when my heart can take it and I hope to pop in here from time to time to touch base with those of you who are struggling.

I know that you are in good hands here on Being Pregnant, as my fellow bloggers are an amazing and compassionate bunch.

But, I wanted to also provide you with a list of resources, should you need them.

Here’s my go-to list for infertility support:

Resolve, the National Infertility Association

Redbook Magazine’s infertility blog roll

Hannah Wept, Sarah Laughed

Practical Parenting

You can always send me a note here if you need a shoulder to cry on.

And I’d love to see you over on Kid Scoop! You can find us on Facebook, too.

Wishing you all a happy road to the family of your dreams,
