I know I haven't been around much but I needed & still need a break from "obsessing" so much about this journey. I do hope to be back around July when we will probably be starting MA once again.

And you may already be aware of this but when I was blog surfing & ran across this "infertility movement" that, in my opinion, is AWESOME so of course I had to share. It's like a secret infertility sisterhood of sorts...

For anyone who has ever had a miscarriage, struggled with pregnancy, and all things infertile…there is a movement upon us that you might want to join. It’s rather simple actually: a discreet ribbon on your right wrist to signal to others that they are not alone in their struggles.

The pomegranate-colored thread holds a two-fold purpose: to identify and create community between those experiencing infertility as well as create a starting point for a conversation. Women pregnant through any means, natural or A.R.T., families created through adoption or surrogacy, or couples trying to conceive during infertility or secondary infertility can wear the thread, identifying themselves to others in this silent community. At the same time, the string serves as a gateway to conversations about infertility when people inquire about its purpose. These conversations are imperative if we are ever to remove the social stigma attached to infertility.Tie on the thread because you’re not alone. Wear to make aware. Join us in starting this conversation about infertility by purchasing this pomegranate-colored thread (#814 by DMC) at any craft, knitting, or variety store such as Wal-mart or Target. Tie it on your right wrist. Notice it on others. Just thought I would pass the word along!


See where it all started, HERE. I can't wait to get the thread & make a bracelet for myself! =)

Here are some graphics if you wanna snag one...
