(“p” update: hCG test is tomorrow morning. FRER was slightly lighter this morning and Wondfo was darker. Choosing not to panic.)
Well, that was fast. I posted that I am “p” and lost three followers. I 100% expected it to happen, and understand completely. I’ve done it myself. You have to protect yourself.
Because it was three bloggers I interact with more frequently, it stung more than I expected. But I still understood. I can’t tell you how many times I have found an infertility blog I want to follow only for it to shortly become a pregnancy blog or to become defunct as the blogger became pregnant and no longer blogged. Isn’t that the goal, for the blogger to become pregnant? But it does (usually) sever the connection between the reader and blogger.
And I totally get it when the blog was never strictly about infertility anyway. If you’re blogging about your life and you are infertile and then fall pregnant, you blog about both, right? It’s always a personal decision, but since my blog is strictly about infertility and RPL, and is read by primarily people with RPL and infertility, it will never be a pregnancy blog. While my “p” is still at risk, however, is a different story. My current “p” ties into my RPL. I am still under the care of an RE who specializes in recurrent pregnancy loss.
I may want to blog about this pregnancy for posterity but if I do so it will be in a separate blog for smug preggos to read 😛
And here is a song that makes me feel better when I am down.
