Infertility Stinks - Reaching Out, Sharing What Works and What Doesn't

Submit an Entry: Share Your Fertility, Trying to Conceive, or Life after Infertility Blog

Name of Your Blog/Website

Infertility Stinks

How Long Have You Been Blogging

Just started. Needed an out to talk about what I was feeling through this 4 year journey!

Where Are You on Your Trying to Conceive Journey

My hubby and I have been trying for 4 years. We are at the point of just praying for a miracle.

Why Did You Start Your Blog?

I want to share with other women that they aren't alone. We all have the mixed emotions that are like a cloud that never leave us!

Tell Us More About Your Blog

My blog is just about infertility; the journey toward conception. I will talk about the ups and downs, the old wives tales tricks I've tried... pretty much anything there is to talk about.

Infertility affects more women than we realize. If we could reach out to each woman struggling with infertility and talk to her about her experience, I bet the rest of us would rarely feel alone.

Infertility strikes the heart of who I am. I dream about it wishing, hoping, praying for that day to come.

I would say what is unique is that over the next days, weeks, and months, I hope to share each thing I have tried. If nothing else, to share with others so they know the pitfalls and hopes of each thing.
