My very first sentence on my very first post:

"And so it begins: the documentation of the journey we began in July 2006 to expand our family!"

And what a journey it's been...and I'm so incredibly glad I made the leap into that rabbit hole. It was intimidating to put my thoughts and feelings out there and share every nitty-gritty detail with complete strangers...some of those strangers have become some of my closest friends.

So as you have probably guessed by now...this is the last post for me here at Reproductive Jeans. Over the last year, especially in the last few months, it's become more difficult for me to find the words to write here. I've composed a million updates in my mind, but get cold feet when it came time to log in and post something.

And I know that it's because I feel silly talking about all the random stuff that now floats in and out of my mind, and hardly any of it revolves around acronyms like IVF, IUI, 10DPO, etc....

Is it strange to say it makes me happy and sad at the same time? Because it goes without saying, I'm grateful for the IF community that I will always be a part of, and it makes me sad to say goodbye to a place that literally saved my sanity. On the other hand, I'm happy to wrap up this chapter of my life and move on to write more freely about what life is like for me now...

Goodbyes are tough. Whether I write many more paragraphs or only a few sentences, I don't know that I'll ever be satisfied that it's enough to convey my heart-felt thanks for this space. I will always treasure it. Always.


Let me know in the comments if you'd like to get an email from me when I set up my new space... (please make sure to leave your email address if its not associated with your blogging account!!)
