Grace, question

Grace, I was wondering if you remember an article you posted about support from friends and family awhile back? I can't find it but I remember it being really good. I have a friend who's going through it and I thought it would be good for her DH to read. He doesn't quite get why she is so upset. I remember my DH being like that the first couple of year too...but sadly, he totally gets it now!

I read that book as well Grace. I agree it does a wonderful job explaining the emotions of IF.

Jamie, just saw your post today, so I'm glad Heather and Melissa were able to get the article to you. Thanks ladies! I hope it helps your friend's DH understand her emotions more. I know we and our DH's can have different reactions and feelings going through it and it's not always easy to explain to each other. You may also want to suggest the book, The Empty Picture Frame: An Inconceivable Journey Through Infertility. It's written by a husband and wife who tell both of their experiences going through IF. It's amazing how I felt so many of the same things and how she was able to put into words.
