Hey all you Lovelies!
Short little micro today, just getting back from vacation and need to do some general housekeeping on the blog.
1st: I desperately need more squawk box posts! I love the days that I get to share other peoples stories with the broader infertility community! I think it is important and invigorating. It’s even more important as a way to keep this space current and focused on community, especially now that I’m expecting myself. This blog is about INFERTILITY, and there are many stories that aren’t showcased through the journey I’ve had. So please, think about writing a peice for Squawk Box. Usually they are 1-3 pages typed by you, about any aspect of infertility that you want to share and help others. We take happy, sad, grateful, fearful… you-name-it- posts! Send yours to: firstname.lastname@example.org I can’t wait to read and share them!
2nd: Huge shout out to continued community! The infertility community is huge and varied and somehow we all try to understand everyone else’s trials and be there for them. It’s amazing to be part of such a kick ass community. It is brought about through intense pain and suffering, but I am seriously honoured to know all of you! I’m still looking for new ways to advocate this year. I will be speaking at some universities again once the school season is upon us, which will be amazing! Keep me posted if you have any speaking opportunities that would work with my advocacy or any other way I can personally help your infertility fueled projects! Reach out to me at: email@example.com
3rd: Quick note on all the feels and my progress. Now that I am back from vacation I’m needing to seriously tackle all the actual baby planning things. Like finish my registry, look at nursery furniture, paint colours, make preparations to transfer my work and responsibilities to other people… etc. It’s all feeling very real. I will likely write a post on this in the coming weeks once I get further into it all. I also did my maternity photo shoot in week 20 while on vacation. It was a spectacular shoot and I will be sharing those photos on the blog as soon as I have them in my possession. I am now 22 weeks pregnant, have a sizable bump, can feel baby moving daily and am still mostly just in awe at the whole thing. Ok… That’s enough of all that.
