Infertility's Common Thread

I know that I've mentioned her before, but if you still haven't visited Jenny's blog What the Blog?, go ahead and do it now. I'll wait...

Jenny was incredibly generous and gave away a book that she'd read and wanted to share with another woman suffering from IF. I won this giveaway and true to her word, she mailed me the book. The book is Navigating the Land of IF (check out the blog here). I've only had to opportunity to read bits of it and I feel like it has some great information. As valuable as it has been to me thus far, I am interested in my family and friends (that know about our journey) reading this book. Perhaps it can help to further IF education as well as prevent some unnecessary bumps in our communication or relationships.

Jenny also sent me a bracelet along with the book. It is braided red thread and I love it. I put it on that first day and I won't take it off. I would now like to do the same for you. If you're interested in receiving this bracelet, leave me a comment with your email and I will write and get your address and send you one from yours truly. Please take a moment to read this and educate yourself a bit further on the history of Infertility's Common Thread. I love the idea behind this movement and would love to see it continue.

Thanks again, Jenny!


  1. Yay! IOU a reply e-mail, but I'm thrilled to see this photo. The only time mine comes off is in the shower since the stupid stuff I wash my face with will bleach the thread. I hope you get some opportunities to pay it forward with the Common Thread Bracelet. Passing it along is pretty amazing.

  2. I would love and proudly wear a red bracelet.

  3. I like this idea too! But I think we should also have a "secret handshake" like the post suggested.
