This Isn't A Mommy Blog. Yes it is.

It seems like every time a blogger gets pregnant that statement comes out. "This isn't turning into a mommy blog", and it inevitably does. I'm not saying anything bad about it at all. I'm asking, why do we feel the need to say that? To not offend non-mom bloggers?

The fact is, you're going through a huge change in your life. Your blog is going to reflect this. You cannot avoid it.

I'm not going to say that this won't turn into a mommy blog, because it very well might. It will continue from this point on as a mommy-adoption-infertility-fitness-whatever else I feel like saying blog.  I can do that. This is my blog, and if you want to say whatever you want to say, start one. Super easy.

Just because we're becoming parents, does not mean we don't still struggle with infertility. I'll be honest and say that our adoption does dull the pain. Our excitement about our baby helps infertility not hurt so much, but it is our life. This is something we will likely always face, and we're okay with that. If you are affected by infertility, please know that I am not deserting you. I am not crossing the line into being a mom and never looking back. The truth is, I'm not leaving you. Even if I become pregnant in the future, I'm not leaving you.

The internet breeds insecurity though, and I've noticed it a lot in regard to infertility. I agree, it is important to have people you can talk to about the issues you're facing, but there is a line between it being constructive and destructive. 

I don't know if you know who Jenna Marbles is, or if you even care for her. I laugh at some of the things she says, but other things I'm like ehhh.... but this video says a lot of important things in my opinion. I'm giving you the language warning now. She loves the f-bomb.

I see a lot of what she is talking about though.

If you're interested in a book of what Jenna Marbles is saying, without any swearing at all, check out "So Long, Insecurity" by Beth Moore. I realize that God is probably giving me the side eye for suggesting these two things together, but you know. It's important.

And world peace.

  1. wonderful post :) Eventhough my husband and I were fortunate to get pregnant, we are still "infertile" and that pain will always be there. But I strongly believe that women who deal with infertility are stronger, wiser and appreciate life in a way that only infertile women do. I think we will "mother" differently because we have been through the struggles, pain and tears that is infertility. Make your blog a "mommy blog". You deserve it so much and this little peanut you will call your child is SO lucky to have you.

    1. I agree. My husband said to me once that he feels like we will appreciate our children and love them deeper because we struggled so hard for so long to have them.
