interesting blog.. thanks for sharing


Thank you for sharing your experience. My husband and I have just begun the fertility/infertility process, and it is already emotionally exhausting and stressful. It is comforting to read about how other couples have made it through so much ups and downs, and reading stories like yours give me hope and strength.

And I swear, if one more person tells me that "you just have to relax" and "you know, stress can be a big factor," I will scream.

Don't Count Your Eggs

Thanks for all the support everyone! Blogging and sharing and all the blog love helped me through the process more than anyone can know.

Just voted. Your blog kept me sane during my time on IF island. Everything you were going through was exactly what I was going through at that time. I emailed you the first time I read your blog and was surprised you emailed me back right away... I felt like I wasn't alone anymore. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. It helped me a lot.


Your blog is absolutely the best one out there as far as support, raw honesty, compassion and openness. Even the fact that you still say "p" instead of the full word shows how much you get it and care even after making it off the island. Thank you for continuing to be a beacon for so many.


Yours is the best blog I've found about infertility and it has really saved me in a lot of ways. It's good to know I'm not alone and you always seem to help put things in perspective. You've got my vote for sure!

Just curious- did your RE offer any reason why the FETs didn't work? I've had 2 failed FETs so far and the RE has no clue. It's pretty infuriating. I don't have much hope that the remaining 2 will work because IVF loves to play cruel jokes (I'm being treated for RPL and now can't get pregnant through IVF with PGS normal embryos- go figure).


Voting for sure. You deserve this for your honest blog that has helped more people than you probably know. I'm in the same boat as Meliss...after 4 long years of unexplained infertility...trying on our own for 2 years, Clomid, IUI's, & 2 rounds of IVF we have a beautiful 1 month old baby boy to snuggle. And, yes, all of the struggle is still there but somehow it's now a dim memory & all worth it!! I wish every person on this crazy journey the same happiness in whatever way it comes!!


Voted and truly hope you win this year! Thanks for all that you share in this blog! I anxiously await each post and many times if I didn't know better, I'd think you were writing about me and my husband in our struggle to create our family as we've been down a very similar path! Infertility is something that you don't completely "get" unless you've been there yourself. It's so refreshing to hear the words I've thought so many times, right there in black and white....someone else out there totally "gets it"! Thank you for sharing your story!


Although I knew your story this was amazing to read :) still so happy and voting for you!!! Don't know if you remember me because its been months since I posted (mostly out of anxiety that things could still go wrong - and actually I did have some issues resulting in a two week hospitalization prior to my csection)....but all of it, as you said, is so so worth it. I'm now the mommy of a precious, beautiful two week old baby girl. Thank you Maya for helping me get through the journey so I could come out on the other side....


Amazing! Voted! Thank you for the hope your blogs gave me. Much needed.!


Voted! No one deserves this award more! Good luck!
