Thanks so much for the support.

But if one more person makes a snide comment to me about being grateful for what I have been given and to stop complaining, I will be making this blog private.

I have removed the anonymous option on this blog. You will have to sign into a google/ blogger/ Live journal/ Typepad account in order to post comments to this blog.

I was about to ask where you've been hiding.. Miss you. :)

Im thinking of you always and know that im here if you need to talk or vent.

I think it is outrageous and horrible that people actually make comments like that. Pregnancy wreaks havoc on your body. That's just the way it is. I was exhausted for most of my pregnancy. I read that a lot of people feel noticeably better starting second trimester. I didn't particularly, but I hope you do! If you decide to make this blog private, I hope you will put me on a list so I can continue to read it, or let me know what I need to do to be approved. I really enjoy your updates. If you just want to limit to people you know personally though, I understand. I will still be thinking of you and wishing you well.

Thank you both.

Adele- I would defintely include you if I were to make it private. You have always been so sweet and supportive. I am so hoping that I don't have to do that because I love having this blog and get hundreds of people visiting every day. I feel like it does help people to learn about things like infertility, attachment parenting, and breastfeeding. So I'm hoping that the rudeness lets up soon and I can continue on with posting.

I just wish I could ban certain people from seeing the blog. I have one person in particular that drives me nuts. And more recently, one of my "friends" posted something rude and ignorant in a very passive aggressive way. She has since been removed from my facebook and my blog roll. So hopefully that will do it.

I have been through deep depression before, so all I can say is I think I understand. There doesn't have to be a reason for just is what it is. I read your blog because you've given me hope, since our husbands have similar #'s (if ya know what I mean). I hope you find the healing you seek, and you reject all judgement. xxoo

The people who are responding negatively are obviously not in your shoes. Some people feel that because we suffered with infertility and now are pregnant that we should be grateful for every symptom as if it doesn't effect us the same way it does any other pregnant woman. Keep your head up! Ignore the nay sayers...I'm not quite sure why they read the blog if they have so much to say about it. If they don't agree don't read!! The blog is for supporters only. I'm not quite sure why they even waist their time. (Sorry got a litle defensive).

I'm so sorry Mandie. I've been thinking about you. I'm hoping that once you get into the 2nd tri things start to get better and you can enjoy your pg'y more.

Hi Mandie - No one gets to tell you how you should feel. You can and should feel however you want, and real friends will understand and support you! I am proud of you for being strong enough to put your feelings out there. I am thinking of you often!

I stumbled on your blog though Jamie's blog (we grew up in the same neighborhood) and I am SO sorry people are saying not nice things. Some people are just terrible.

Hope you are feeling better! I love you blog and your son is just the cutest!

I will be 10 weeks pg tomorrow and I have been suffering from awful ms and headaches. I know how miserable they can make you, how it make it hard to do the things you want to with your other child(ren). I am sorry that people are being so horrible. You don't deserve it.
