Blogging = New Friends!

Blogging is a great way to vent and to share my feelings, but it's also led to a wonderful new friend for me! Through The Yellow Room, I met a fellow blogger that shares a very similar IF story. Hollie was the first person to ever comment on my blog and we quickly discovered that we had a lot in common! Soon we were emailing and talking on the phone, and for Christmas, Mr. C. gave me a plane ticket to go visit Hollie and her DH! I went this past weekend and stayed at their house. It is so amazing to be able to talk to someone who knows exactly what you are going through. That is the beauty of blogging. We're this community of women who can relate to each other's struggles while supporting and celebrating with each other during the journey. Thank you to everyone for reading my blog and for supporting me along the way. Thanks especially to Hollie and her DH for being wonderful new friends!

(FET Update: I went for my ultrasound last Friday. My lining was only 5.9...too thin to go ahead with our scheduled Jan. 16th transfer. SO, it is postponed for a week. I am now on V.ivelle patches in addition to the E.strace in hopes that things will fluff up. I'm also going to acupuncture twice this week to see if that helps. I haven't been going this cycle, but since my lining was almost twice as thick last IVF and I did go to acupuncture, I now believe in the difference it can make! I have another ultrasound this Friday so I'll report back after it's done.)

Oh how fun! It is great to meet and get to know people in the same boat, huh?

Speaking of, my lining check is Friday too! We may be FET twins!

That is awesome about the trip, so cool (and Hollie's dog is adorable in that profile pic)!

Wishing you lots of great things with your next ultrasound!
