Microblog Monday Mini Post


A different type of Microblog Monday post for me. Not entirely sure it would meet Stirrup Queen’s rules 😉

I came across a fellow infertility blogger’s post that really resonated with me: “Backed Into A Corner And Feeling Trapped” by Count Yourself Unlucky



Casey and I will be participating in “Walk to Remember” and this text from their site really stuck with me:

There is a reality so sad, so distressing, that many cannot fathom it. And yet, for 15,000 Alberta parents whose babies are lost each year via miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth and neonatal death, it is an experience they will never forget. Having to say goodbye when never having the opportunity to say hello haunts these parents each day. And yet, these babies brought so much joy to their families. Each of them had an expected arrival, a highly anticipated future. Any one of them could have grown up to be a scientist or a snowboarder, a teacher or a poet.  Each one of them was supposed to have a first birthday, a last day of school, a first kiss, a last dance. Their possibilities were, purely, endless.

  1. Hey, thanks for this… I find the blogging very therapeutic & a good way to get stuff off my chest. Plus I’m always grateful for the kind and thoughtful comments that people take the time to write.
    When you said that this post resonated with you, it made me feel better because it helps to normalise my experience.
    Thanks for reaching out and I would like to take the chance to say that I am very sorry for your losses.
