I'm quite overwhelmed by the reception of Wednesday's post on speaking about infertility. It has garnered quite a bit more attention than I could have imagined, and I'm really grateful so many of you have Tweeted, Shared, and otherwise spread it to your friends. Your thoughtful comments, your genuine sympathy, encouragement, and most especially your outpouring of love and prayers is humbling and beautiful. Thank you so much!
As I suspected it would, the post has also (amongst comments that were deleted before being posted) brought in a whole new wave of "have you tried?"s. This comes with the territory of exposing your heart and your ideas for public consumption, of course, and I'm not looking for sympathy on that matter. It did, however, bring up one more point that I did not originally mention in Wednesday's post, but that I think is extremely important because it is so extremely common in this discussion.
I can't believe I omitted it on Wednesday, because this is probably the single most common (and most personally devastating) comment of them all!
It's been added and labeled #3 on the original post.
