Support Groups and Old Faces

I've been meaning to update but I've been busy at work so I've been lazy at home!

Monday night I went to a meeting for the local infertility support group. It was so great to have everyone in the room truly understand what I'm going through. It was strange to see a girl I went to high school with stroll through the door but it was nice as well.

The Kansas City Infertility Awareness Foundation has been going on for about 4 years and on Monday I met a couple of the founders. They are so awesome and have so much knowledge and aren't afraid to share it which is great! I found myself still feeling a little like a fraud since I'm so early in the journey but they did so much to help me feel welcome.

Another awesome thing they do besides these monthly meetings, is put on a conference each year! From what I understand it's pretty amazing. All the local RE's have booths there so you can meet with their staff, chat a little about their offices and make a better decision on who to pick. I really like that. They also have several speakers that will be speaking on things like IVF, PCOS, Male Factor, etc. It looks like it's going to be great. I really wish hubs could come but he works the night before and the night of. Mom works too so I guess I'm going alone. Oh well, such is life.

Anyway... that's my "update" for now. There's not much going on until I go get my bloodwork on the 28th..


  1. That sounds wonderful! You are lucky to have that group! :)

  2. I wish I could sit in a room with the three RE's in town and basically make them fight over who gets to help me. It's so hard to choose based off of their websites.

  3. I've joined my local support group as well and it's been a great experience. It's interesting to exchange with women who are at various stages of their journey. The conference sounds like a great way for you to get tons of information.

  4. That sounds like a great resource! How weird to see a girl from high school. Hopefully you like her okay ;)
