Fertility Authority’s Blog of the Week: A Hundred Affections
The blog we’d like to feature this week is A Hundred Affections.
Katie’s journey began when she went off of her birth control pills and noticed that her cycles were irregular. Shortly after, a small cyst was discovered on her ovary but it was nothing major. Once she began trying to conceive she felt that she wasn’t ovulating and immediately consulted with her OB/GYN. Katie began fertility testing workups and was surprised to discover that she was pregnant. Unfortunately, her doctor informed her that it was likely that she would miscarry. Two sonograms later, she received the devastating news that she had in fact miscarried. In the spring of 2013 she was referred to a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and just recently began taking Clomid.
Originally, Katie decided to create a blog after she had miscarried. However, she was still coping with what had happened and felt that she wasn’t ready to talk about her experiences at that point in time. Eventually, she felt that she was ready move forward and launched her blog A Hundred Affections. Katie’s blog focuses on her life as a whole, not just her fertility journey. She does not feel that her fertility struggles define her - or anyone else. She elaborates, “I really believe that everything in life is meaningful - and even redeemable.”
Through the use of her blog, Katie is determined to make a positive impact and contribution to anyone struggling with infertility. She explains, “I hope my readers will feel uplifted, inspired, or have something that helps them. I hope that they will read something that makes them think and contemplate their lives and ultimately makes their lives better and/or brighter. I love the community among bloggers (both writers and readers), so I hope my readers will feel that connectedness and support. There's always a bright side to everything in life - so I hope that comes through. I hope my readers will gain something from my story(ies) and that I will gain from theirs.”
