Coming out of the Infertility Closet

In honor of Infertility Awareness week this week (April 24-May 1), I have decided to come out of the Infertility closet.  I had a great post all in my mind on all my reasons for it but Kate over at Busted Plumbing wrote this great post that absolutly reads my mind.

Tomorrow morning, my facebook status will read:

"Hi, my name is Nicole, and I'm an Infertile. This week is National Infertility Awareness Week, and I want you to know someone you know and care about has been impacted by infertility. Please feel free to ask me questions about my condition, or talk to me if you are struggling with fertility challenges yourself. And educate yourself on Infertility by going to Resolve.Org, so you can better support the men and women who are impacted by this condition."

Will you join me in coming out of the Infertility Closet?


  1. I'm scared! But you are so brave.

  2. my post today is actually about staying IN the closet. It maybe something I will consider in time, but for me that isn't right now. I hope that you get some great support from you family and friends tomorrow after you post.

  3. I've been coming out of the IF closet all over the place lately! Church, work, and I donated my status tonight... I'm afraid it may be the only time I will remember before NIAW is over!lol Anyway, Happy ICLW and good luck with this cycle!

  4. I have always been open and honest about my journey with infertility, but there are so many people in my life who don't know. I am totally going to copy your paragraph and put it on my FB page too. Thanks!

    Also, I wish you the very best of luck during your cycle this month. I hope this IUI is the one!


  5. I have been seriously considering doing this and being that it is awareness week, i have no idea what is holding me back. I should probably do it! Ok, I will!

    Best of luck with your IUI and Happy ICLW!

  6. I am not ready yet for coming out of the closet on FB...too many people who really won't care and just use the news to gossip about until the next one comes up..but I am very open IRL, hopefully next year!

    Much love and well done, Fran

  7. I have always been very open about our journey, but I don't believe that I'm ready for the whole FB thing.

    Good luck
