So after my
anihilation humiliation er, personal challenge at BlogHer, Mo had this brilliant idea. Why isn’t there a podcast for people who are going through adoption/loss/infertility? So many women and men are dealing with this stuff, and not all of them (not even most of them) blog about it or go on the infertility boards.
Enter “The Bitter Infertiles!”
We all come from different experiences: Mo’s had three miscarriages, one stillbirth at 22 weeks, and a whole lot of surgeries. Shelley is dealing with a diagnosis of unexplained infertility and is preparing for an FET after her first round of IVF failed. Cristy has dealt with 3 failed IUIs, 3 failed rounds of IVF/FET and two early miscarriages, and zero explanation for their infertility other than it’s a case of “bad luck.” And I’m the parenting after infertility perspective.
ALSO: we do a weekly Faces of ALI segment. This week we interviewed Kristin, from Dragondreamer’s Lair, who talked about dealing with RPL, parenting her three boys and also told us some hilarious tales. I am so inspired by her sense of humor, which has remained intact throughout all of her experiences. (Aside: The hardest I laughed at BlogHer was when Kristin told me the story that is included in this podcast.)
I hope you enjoy it. I am so proud of Shelley, Cristy and Kristin and Mo, who had the vision and expertise to make this happen.
