Fertile People Are Talking about Us Everywhere!

If you're not already following along, Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer has been running a series called, "What I'd Like For You To Know;" as Shannon says, "the idea behind this series is to allow women to share something about a specific life challenge or circumstance, addressing some of the misconceptions and (most importantly) telling us all how we can reach out better."

This week's edition of the series is about infertility, written by a woman who has experienced primary and secondary infertility as well as pregnancy loss.

Thanks for pointing us to that post. Just wondering if there is anything else that you would add to it?

Hey Andrea, re: your comment about pain in shoulders and chest from the gas--yes, I did experience that the day of the surgery and the day after. I used a heating pad, like I'd been told, but I don't think it helped. It wasn't severe pain, but it was uncomfortable. Worse when I stood up. And the shakes--that was a surprise to me! Even my teeth chattering. And strangely, it happened to me again lst night! I think it was because I'd just done a lot at the house--cleaned up from dinner, I think, and when I sat back down my teeth started chattering. The day of the surgery and day after, it was definitely noticeable.
