Expecting the Unexpected – IVF/Preemie/Toddler

Miss my Old Bog friends! Idea’s, Thoughts & Opinions

Filed under: Archives — Shazld @ 5:29 pm

Being away for so long I have lost touch with so many people I met in Blog land, which is really sad.  Some have gone private and I have no way of contacting them, others have gone MIA or just deleted their thoughts all together.  Now that I have made it through the IVF hell and finally have my beautiful son I know that alot of TTC’ers probably won’t have alot to do with this Blog and truely I can understand why, but deep down I really hope they do have a read because I too struggled for nearly 7 yrs doing 8 clomid cycles, PCOS, crushed tubes, 9 BFN IVF cycles, 1 empty sac cycle, 2 BFP which resulted in the loss of my Daughter Chloe, then the last one our 11th try and almost one of the last we got our BFP but we almost lost him at 18 weeks due to an incompetent cervix only to have him at 25 weeks then spend 153 day in nicu.

I really want to get involved again with blog land so if anyone knows of anyone who has been through and incompetent cervix or is going through it I would love to read their blogs.  Or if anyone knows of another way of getting followers again…..please let me know how.  Wow I sound so sad and desperate lmao.

Maybe I need to start a fresh Blog on my ventures after IVF??  But maybe my journey isn’t over yet.  Any ideas or thoughts??



  1. Wow, it sounds like you’ve been through so much. I’m so glad you have your son, Maxx. I hadn’t heard of an incompetent cervix and I confess I googled it – it sounds horrible! But I suppose nothing in the infertility realm is good.

    I hope you reconnect with people and get the support you need soon. Adding your blog to the “Stirrup Queen’s blogroll” might help you connect with other bloggers. 🙂

  2. I was going to suggest Stirrup Queen’s Blogroll as well, but besides adding yourself, browse through and find blogs to read from it. http://www.stirrup-queens.com/a-whole-lot-of-blogging-brought-to-you-sorted-and-filed/

  3. You could start a new blog, but would you then explain what came before parenthood? And in which detail?
    Are you looking to get in touch with mostly ‘normal’ moms – meaning moms who didn’t battle with IF? Then it makes perfect sense to start a new blog. Of course, ‘normal’ moms may not be sensitive to certain things that are self-evident for women who’ve been there. I stress may, because of course you don’t have to experience something to be able to empathize. It often helps though.

    Either way, the best way to connect with new people is to comment on their blogs. Strategically, it’s best to comment on people who also have few followers.

    If you leave your blog up, eventually, women who go through a similar ordeal as you did will find you.

  4. just keep on blogging. people will drift in and out some will stay and you’ll build up slowly and just like when you or anyone else very first started, the fastest way to get people to read your posts is to comment on theirs.

    I wouldn’t start a new blog (says she who is about too) unless you’re prepared to lose your history and truly start afresh. But then again that may be what you need/want/end up doing. either way i’ll be in and out as time allows as long as you put up the link lol.
