New to blogging

My reasons for starting this blog are very simple, I am going to use this as my outlet, a place I can dedicate to this area of my life, so it hopefully will no longer bleed into every other aspect of me.

After almost 3 years of TTC it has become me. I am not saying that it has molded me into the person I am today..... No, it has BECOME me, it has CONSUMED me, been a part of every breath I have taken, and every thought I have had for the last 3 years..... I am so tired!!!!!
My friendships have suffered, I cant even throw a baby shower for my best friends or be supportive to my cousin when in labor.... I am tired of it!!!!

I entitled this blog "Our Adventure with Infertility" Because the word "adventure" seems to resonate meaning and also seems to include a conclusion, I need to believe that all this is for a purpose and I refuse to look at it as a burden with no end insight, I have done that for too long. Instead this is our.... Jason and Jamie Wood's personal Adventure!!!

Please don't get me wrong, this blog will not just have uplifting, positive "New" Jamie posts, it is sure to have some self pity, and venting posts. But remember this is its designated spot, its allowed here, not only by me but by any of you who feel you want to contribute.

My husband and I are currently on Haidas from baby making until after a vacation in August. So the posts made by me until then will be self reflections and preparation for our next steps, which are still to be decided.


  1. Welcome to the world of blogging. Its a wonderful outlet. Believe me! I will be there for more trigger shots and support as always in the near future.

    Lots of love,


  2. Thank you for including me in your blog! I'm so happy you have an outlet. You are in my prayers, I am a strong believer in everything happens for a reason!

    I love you more than you will ever know
    Aunt Charli

  3. Love you girlie (and Jason). I'm here if you need me. Seriously. Any time. Lots of prayers coming your way. ♥♥

  4. You are amazing and I love and miss you bunches :) I had no idea about all the pets...you're gonna turn into a Kronland soon!

  5. Hello lady, stopping by to say welcome from LFCA:) I hope you find blogging to be an awesome support to you on this journey, it was one of the best things I did during our struggle with IF...the ladies you meet through this are such an amazing support & really lift you up on those difficult days. Also if you have questions about IVF I'd be happy to help, we also were told IVF was our only option...I understand how difficult that news can be to hear, but I can tell you we survived it & it really wasn't as awful as I expected it to be. Wishing you all the best in your "adventure":)

  6. Welcome. I too am a newbie to this ALI blogging community, but it has been so wonderful. It sounds like you have been through so much already. Your description of this becoming the only thing you have thought about for three years hits home with me. I don't think that other people can completely understand just how CONSUMING this adventure is. I'll be looking forward to following your story.

    One thing you didn't mention in your timeline was an SA. I thought I'd mention it because I know it can get overlooked, but as a couple struggling with Male Factor IF, I encourage everyone to start with an SA.

    Best of luck on your journey!

  7. Welcome to blogging. I hope it does provide a great outlet for you. IF is very hard. This is a great community of women.
