If you're infertile and you know it: Stomp Your Feet

Have you ever felt like that?
I know I have.  

Well today I checked on a blogger friend at myinfertilitywoes and she had attached a link to her blogger friend Lily at The infertile mind.  Her friend had made an inspirational e book on infertility that can be viewed as a video or a pdf which you can download from her site. It was great.  I was so glad I viewed it, and I hope you will too.

Her ebook helped me put in perspective the anger and sadness I had felt regarding my infertility this weekend after I was told I was "still young" and "had plenty of time", and then later when a different person told me to "enjoy this time I had without kids".  

While I would've rather these friends hadn't told me these things, there is some truth to what they said.  

I am still young, and even if I am old when I have kids, I won't be too old to love them.  I may not be a celebrity, but they certainly aren't the only ones who can have kids way past their prime.  And I should enjoy the time I have to be with just my husband, I dreamed of this time when we would be able to spend time together as a married couple.  And if I only focus on what I don't have I will spoil this time that I do have.

So, if you're infertile and you know it: Blog about it. 

That might help.


  1. Yay! So glad you liked it and thanks for mentioning me :)

    I LOVED how she has a page that says "You can impact a child's life at any time". It's so meaningful to me, especially from Lily, because she's been teaching me so much to be a great adult influence on others - she does it with her nieces & nephews and it inspires me to do the same.

    I also love "Joy has no deadline" - yeah, live for today!!

  2. Just wanted to say Thank You for telling me that you appreciated the e-book and then imagine my surprise to find a post about it here, too! I used to never talk about my infertility but ever since I have, I continue to meet amazing woman after amazing woman. Women like you and myinfertilitywoes!

  3. I love the blog title. And FYI: today, the official last day of my 20s, I am stomping my feet like crazy! :)

  5. I hate that "enjoy your childfree life now while you have" - what if you don't want it?


  6. Thank you for sharing!
    I'm stomping my feet too.

    Oh & don't you just love it, along with the AWESOME advice... don't you JUST love it when people offer you their misbehaving children?
