so, ya know yesterday's humpday hero, journey through IF? well, she literally lives just down the road from me! crazy, huh?
we've been emailing back and forth and we decided to meet up in person today. have you ever met somebody and felt like you've known them forever? i'm not sure if it's our common bond of experiencing infertility and now having our first babies or just having personalities that click, but it was exactly like that!
for an hour and a half straight, while mack quietly took in his surroundings and piper napped peacefully in her stroller, we talked about our experiences with infertility and treatments, our feelings about becoming new moms, our struggles to overcome our fears, and pretty much our entire life stories. i honestly don't know anyone else in real life that has been labeled "infertile", so i've felt pretty alone at times. it is so nice to finally have a friend that i can spend time with face to face that gets it, that understands the bumpy road i've traveled to get mack here, that can relate to it all.
i've found so much support here in this community. i just can't believe that one of you was practically my neighbor for so long and i never even knew it! coincidence? i think not. ;)
