View Poll Results: Would you tell people your baby was conceived using medical assistance techniques?
Yes, I would tell anyone, even if they didnt ask
I would only tell close family/friends, whether or not they asked
I would tell an acquaintance, but only if they asked
I chose the first option because I have an infertility blog, so anyone in the world could read about our journey if they looked for it. I was open about our loss with friends and family, and had some people offer support and an ear if I wanted to talk. So those people know more about the MA aspect. Only three people I know IRL know about the blog right now and I don't think any of them read it. Eventually I hope to transition the blog from weekly updates about our struggle to weekly updates on my pregnancy/child's development and will tell everyone else about the blog then. I'll still probably mention the path we took and of course they could read through the archives if they wanted. When someone asks us when we are having kids I tell them I am infertile and may never have a biological child but I basically leave it at that because going into more details seems to make people uncomfortable.
Wanted to add this...I know not everyone on here is religious, but for those that are:
Telling everyone was awesome, because we had SOOO many people praying for us. We felt so much love and support, and that kept us going when things looked bleak. I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so that was a big part of me wanting to tell people what we were going through.
