A Toast to You All

Happy Blogiversary to me!!!

One year ago today, I inaugurated this blog. Guess what I was doing? Waiting to start IVF. At that point, I had already been waiting for about 7 months and I did not know then in January that I would wait until March to start down-regulating. Of course, things have gone tits up ever since. It is just as well that you cannot see what is in front of you.

I know that a lot of our paths have diverged in the past year. Some are awaiting the birth of the longed-for child/children, some are wending the intricate windy path of adoption, some are adjusting to a child-free life and some, like me, are trying to follow a different path with DE. None of us has ever had it easy.

There have been times in the last year that I did not know how to go on and one of you would extend the hand of sisterhood in a comment or an e-mail that would make a tiny and yet huge difference in how I felt. The sharing of stories and pain and loss and humour and shoes and Morrissey have kept me buoyed like a lifejacket.

Without you all, my friends, I would surely have sunk like a stone. Here's to another year.

A year already? Of course I just started reading you relatively recently.

I sincerely hope to strike you off my reading list soon, because you've hit the jackpot and I can't stand to read another word about your lovely offspring. :-)
What did you think, because I don't like your company? Never.

Happy Blogiversary! Thank you for all the nice comments you always leave on my blog. I hope when you are celebrating your 2nd next January, you are well on your way to motherhood or up to your tits in nappies. (BTW, I wish my tits were up just a little...)

Happy Blogiversary!
It's amazing to have this last year documented, all the twists and changes. It's amazing for all of us to have this collective experience to draw on.

I know! The year has flown by. I remember first finding your blog and being so excited about a Scottish blogger! And now, just think, I get to meet you soon. And hopefully our tits will stay right where they belong.

I'm glad you're out there Mrs. P. I quite enjoy the shot of grapefruit into my morning routine.

Congrats, Dearie. I hope this is your last blogiversary, actually (at least insofar as you're IF blogging).

Thanks for all the tartness and pink :)

Okay, okay-- I know what you mean by tits up, but I sure do wish my tits were up... oh well...

I also know what you mean about the blog being a life saver, and I'm glad you're around because you've certainly made me a more sane woman a lot of the time too.

All my love, and some of my tits.

Happy Blogiversary! And if it's all the same to you, I'm hoping that we don't have another year of this . . . unless, of course, we all have mommy blogs by then. :-)

Congrats on your blogging milestone. Hope the next year brings you all the joy and delight that you deserve!

I am delurking to say congratulations on your blogiversary.

It feels like I am you a year ago...IVF wise...I am starting the first round of IVF in April. Don't know if/how I will stay sane through it, but intend to revert back to your blog to check for "what to do?" when I don't know what to do!

Good luck for the future, hopefully you don't have to wait too long (OK, everything feeels too long) for the DE cycle.

Take care!
