Guess what was in one of those 576 posts? A blogger I’ve read for years and years declaring her 3rd pregnancy. Oh! And! She wasn’t even trying.
Welcome back, Courtney!
Do you guys in the pregnancy loss and infertility community subscribe to blogs of pregnant women and new moms? Does it give you encouragement, or complete and utter devastation? Does it constantly remind you of what you don’t have, or does it inspire you to keep trying?
I just deleted a few blogs that I’ve been reading for a while because I can’t keep reading about their pregnancies and babies*. I don’t want to unsubscribe to this particular blog, but I’m not sure I can handle it.
What do you guys do?
*This doesn’t apply to those of you that are in this community or have suffered a loss and are now pregnant or have children and blog about them. For you, I am elated. You continue to give me hope because I know you know what it feels like. Just didn’t want you to think I was talking about you. I’m still reading!
[Update 3/10: today I found out the above blogger is having twins. I’m happy for her, in the sincerest way possible, I really am — but damn it makes it sting even more.]
