Sock it to Me

This week is “Sock it to Me” week. I participated in a sock exchange hosted by Kim, which was a lot of fun. We all got our sock buddies and exchanged socks. My sock buddy was Tilley, and she sent me several pairs of striped, knee-high socks. They’re perfect for u/s appointments because they’re so long. In fact, I wore the blue and black pair today!

I’ve really enjoyed getting to read other new IF blogs as a result of this exchange. The IF community is larger than I ever imagined, and if this is something I have to go through, I’m glad I have so many other wonderful women to go through it with. The support I’ve received from them throughout my IVF was amazing, and, although I appreciate all of my regular readers’ support as well, it’s nice having readers who know *exactly* what you’re going through. And, on the flip side of that, I’ve really enjoyed being there for other bloggers through the good and the bad. I really feel like I know these women, and I celebrate the BFPs and mourn the BFNs. IF is something I’d never wish on anyone, but it’s so much easier to get through with a bunch of good friends.

    During the matching, when Tilley sent me her info she said that she hoped that some of her pregnancy vibes would rub off on the socks and help her recipient get a BFP, and YOU DID! I seriously have chills and feel teary with joy knowing that you’ll be wearing your socks to OB appointments!
