You're all the best.

Smooch smooch and hugs.

It's nice to know that I'm not going insane-that what I'm feeling is not the result of delusion or chemical imbalance, but is common among us. It doesn't take the pain away, but it does make me more aware that I'm not alone in the fight-you're all beside me, with paper gowns on (tied in the back and naked underneath, of course), speculums and dildocams in hand, facing the enemy that is our own personal nemesis-the dreaded infertility.

I only wish that we knew a magic spell to take all of it away, but we don't. However, having all of you around for support is a comfort and a blessing. Thank you for reading my whiny posts, for listening to me bitch, for being, well, you-for the kind words and the sarcasm, and for making me laugh.

Infertility still SUCKS, but it's been much easier to bear since you all came into my life. Thank you, again.

Rock on, girls!

Yup, it just keeps on going. Glad you're feeling slightly chirpier, and hope we can meet on Saturday.

You are the one who rocks Chica. If there only was a magic spell, agreed. A candle however is always burning for you.

Hi S, This is my first time on your blog, I'll need to get a bit caught up, but I'm hoping to meet with you, Thalia and Avonlea this Saturday for coffee in NY. I'm not that familiar with cafes in that area, so I vote for Cafe S.F.A, the cafe at Saks. Here's a link with reviews, address and phone number: http://www.journeywoman.com/gfc/dining_solo.html (it's the 3rd review down). Their hours tomorrow are from 11 am to 7 pm, so about 4 pm will be just fine. I've e-mailed Thalia and Avonlea as well. What say you? I hope we can meet up. Enjoy the day - and the snow!!!

Well done on a great blog! I was searching for information on infertility and came across your post. Not exactly what I was looking for related to infertility but very interesting all the same! If you get a chance come and visit my infertility site.
