Everybody’s Doing It!

Better late than never… turns out this week is DeLurking Week. We’ve made some fabulous friends (IRL and ITC)* through reading and commenting on other blogs, and it really makes my day to read comments from our faithful following when you post them here, but I know there are also a whole bunch of you who read silently. I’d love to know who you are!

I got another nudge to post about DeLurking Week this morning when I got an email from another molar pregnancy survivor thanking me for putting our story online. It really made my morning, because I remember how much I wanted to find other people who had been through this obscure, frightening experience, and I am so glad that I could be there for someone who’s there now.

So come out, come out, wherever you are! You don’t need to leave an address, a blog or even a name if you don’t want – but I’d love to hear from everybody who stops by here. (Oh, and if you haven’t already done so, you could also put a pin in the Guestmap – see the link in the middle of the column on the right).

Thanks for all of your friendship, encouragement, and support!

    I have you bookmarked on the list of blogs I read daily 🙂

    I like reading your blog because you two are super cute together AND there are babies involved. What more could you want to brighten a day otherwise filled with studying?

  15. Like Rebecca- regular reader, don’t comment much, but I really enjoy this window into what is going on with Jen and Cait!

  16. Another lurker here – lurked on FF, now on Mamacita (though I have said Hi to the board there). Read it all the time – thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

  17. Another lurker peeking out to say hello. I don’t remember how I got here but I’ve been following your blog ever since. I am leaving my url but it’s locked so you’d have to email me for the pw if you were so inclined.

  18. My partner, Mindy, and I have been following from the beginning. I love to read you blog and hope you never stop writing to us!

  25. ah shoot, I posted the wrong link in my last comment… can you delete that please? I guess I wasn’t meant to delurk when I was so sleepy! You can replace it with my blog address…

  26. This is so much fun – I had no idea some of you were out there and it’s a blast to “meet” you!

    And I had to post now because the word verification is “JOKRZ”. Ha!

  31. Delurking..

    Love your blog – have you bookmarked as well 🙂 Great read!

    Deah from ff

  32. Hey there. I think I’ve commented before, but not nearly as often as I read. Yours is one of the blogs I drop by daily, and you’re linked from mine. Great job! -Kate-

  33. Hi I am a lurker of your blog. I love how open the two of you are about your journey to parenthood. I had a good friend who also had a molar pregnancy and that is how I first found you ladies. I am happy to report that she gave birth to twins this past Monday night.

  34. Hello! Just a random young reader who found this blog purely by accident, and is glad she did. 🙂 It’s encouraging and heartening to read that yes, even girl-couples can and do have babies! De-lurkifying now.

  35. Hi… I’m delurking as a Gestational Surrogate mother who is currently pregnant with twins for a gay couple. One of the twins is ill and will not survive past birth, but we’re continuing the pregnancy to give the other baby the best chance… I’ve read your blog for at least 6 months now I think.

  36. A devoted lurker

  37. Delurking to wish everybody well!

  38. This lurker sends love.

  39. Meemer! Is that you?!?!

  40. Hi! I’m a regular reader too. I’m really happy and excited for you and Cait. Being a mom is cool, and from what I’ve ascertained from this blog you two will be great moms!

  41. I usually drop by every day and have just added myself to your guest map.

  42. Delurking myself. My name is Ashley, I silently read from Vero beach, Florida. Congratulations to the both of you on your upcoming arrival.

  43. not a lurker, but hey there!

  44. Another delurker who found you on Julie’s site and can’t wait for you and Cait to have your baby!

  45. Not exactly a lurker, but I’ll play along too.

  46. delurker. Oh hi!

  47. Definitely not a lurkking-type of gal, but throwing my hat into the ring just to say I’M HERE DAMMIT!
