It just flat out does. No matter if or how you become a mommy, you always feel the weight of being "broken". A web board friend who I watched go through many a heartwrenching cycle and various treatments is about to deliver her first baby (YAYYYYYYYY!). I follow her blog for updates and was very touched by one of her many posts on infertility. She says it perfectly - the shadow of IF. It sucks! Thanks Lucy for writing this awesome post! And I can't wait to see pictures of Little E after his safe arrival! Congrats!!!!
