Local Infertility Group — The Bump

Local Infertility Group

So tonight me and Hubs are going to a local infertility group led by a mental health practitioner. It apparently got started a year ago. I stumbled upon it when I was googling counseling for infertility/loss last week. Im actually kind of nervous about joining in a group where I dont know a soul. But I have been yearning for someone to understand...IN PERSON. I have so many online peeps that get it, but it would be so nice to have someone in the flesh get it.

Re: Local Infertility Group

  • I'm really glad you found a group. I know it can be really helpful. I hope it works out for you. I just want to warn you (from personal experience) primary infertiles can be not so friendly toward secondary infertiles. I get why, having gone through both, but I got burned at a group. Hopefully yours is MUCH better and helps you heal. ((Hugs))

  • I was wondering how it went too!

    I made my first friend at the clinic this morning. And wow it felt good to talk to someone in person who is also out of my normal social group.
    Me: 32, DH: 33
    DS #1: April 2010
    DS #2: July 2015 (preemie born at 31 weeks) - our little miracle conceived through ART - unexplained secondary infertility/adenomyosis
  • They were very friendly. I do think the fact that we have a child was an awkward fact, but I think it "helped" since we went through a long tough infertility journey to conceive him as well. So I can remember that. The moderator also experienced infertility(is currently experiencing? Im not entirely sure)...so that was actually really nice. I tend to talk A LOT when Im nervous. So I was trying to not talk as much. I was shaking I was so nervous when I was talking. lol. I do think we will go back.
