1. Have you ever gone to an infertility support group IRL? How was your experience?

2. Are you involved with Resolve or any other fertility-awareness organizations?

3. Are you "out" as infertile on Facebook? If so, what has the response been? If not, what holds you back?

1. Have you ever gone to an infertility support group IRL? How was your experience? Never been...do have a few real life people that I text about it to.

2. Are you involved with Resolve or any other fertility-awareness organizations? No

3. Are you "out" as infertile on Facebook? If so, what has the response been? If not, what holds you back? DH wants to keep it private, so I don't write anything about it on fb. He says "We don't ask other people how their baby was made, so why should they know about how ours is." If he wants to keep it between us, then I need to keep it between us. He's a very private person. It's hard for me sometimes when people ask when we're going to start having children, but I just remember that it's personal to us.

1. Have you ever gone to an infertility support group IRL? How was your experience? No but I would if I could find one...

2. Are you involved with Resolve or any other fertility-awareness organizations?I don't even know what that is...I feel as if I must google now though...

3. Are you "out" as infertile on Facebook? If so, what has the response been? If not, what holds you back? I kinda "came out" a while back. Mostly I got positive response but I had one girl that messaged me and I quickly figured out that she was lying about having had a miscarriage and said she was pregnant again. It was pretty pathetic.

Good questions!

1. Have you ever gone to an infertility support group IRL? How was your experience? DH and I did a 10 week workshop that focused on mind-body skills for people dealing with infertility. It was part relaxation/mediation skills practice and part support group. It was wonderful!

2. Are you involved with Resolve or any other fertility-awareness organizations?
I'm not involved with RESOLVE yet but have been planning to find a way to become involved soon. Even if it just means making a donation for now.

3. Are you "out" as infertile on Facebook? If so, what has the response been? If not, what holds you back?
I'm not and I guess it's just because I didn't want some of my FB friends (work colleagues and my grad school advisor) to know that we were TTC. Once we come out about our pregnancy on FB, I plan to post about our journey to get here.
