The Common Thread Project

The Common Thread Project is a fabulous idea. I read about it on Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters. It began as Operation Pomegranate, and has evolved now to the Common Thread Project. I hope that infertile women will take up the thread and band together. It would be nice to know when you're in line at Publix if the pregnant lady in fromt of you suffered from infertility.

I'm stopping at Hobby Lobby today to buy some DMC #814. I think I'll make a friendship bracelet with it, if I can remember how to do it.

I'm a big mouth, and I'll tell anyone about my journey with infertility. I don't do it to make anyone feel sorry for me. I just think that the common folk need to know how prevalent infertility is. When you share your story, it is amazing how many IF's come out of the woodwork.

My second mock cycle is over, and I finally have a decent lining. So, we now know the protocol to use to build my lining.

I have accepted another donor. I've seen a baby picture and she looks just like my brother. My mother and brother agree. We won't be cycling until October. I'm going to try to get healthier in the meantime. I've joined a gym, and I'm going everyday after school. I haven't lost much weight yet, but I'm sure I will.

I am hopeful that this time will work.

    And thank you for mentioning Common Thread. Get the word out.
