Boston / New England Blogger Gathering! (Updated)

Pixi and I met for another lovely conversation and hot chocolate last night, and came up with a tentative plan for a northeast blogger (non-bloggers welcome too) gathering. At the moment we're thinking of having lunch on Sunday 2/5, at a place yet to be determined (although we do have a few options we're considering). If you'd like to join us (or if you'd like to come but that date doesn't work for you), pop me an email at noperiodbaby AT comcast dot net. We'd like to get a sense over the next couple of days of how many people are interested, and whether that date works or not.

*update* The gathering will take place at the Temple Bar in Cambridge at 11am on Sunday. It's a chic restaurant with great food, and I've been told we can have one of their most private tables in a corner. Check out Pixi's post for a list of who's coming. Can't wait to meet everyone!!

It sounds like fun - I'm jealous! And feeling very alone in my little corner of the country...If the New England bloggers ever want to escape the snow and enjoy a couple days of winter sunshine, let me know.

First of all, congratulations! I wish best for you and your baby! I have read a lot of your posts. I'm so glad I found you. I see some similarity in our cases --- I have Hypothalamic amenorrhea as well. Here is my story: three years ago I became underweight (lots of exercise) and stopped having my period. Last year I decided to get pregnant so my OB/GYM tried to induce my period with hormones but nothing happened. Then she recommended a fertility dr. In Dec/05 I tried fertility drugs (Follistim) for the first time (with no IUI) but my period came in about 13 days after the hcg shot. Then, I had a second cycle and this time the dr. suggested IUI 24 hours after the hcg but my period showed up again. Because I was overstimulated this last time (mild OHSS), now, I have to wait one month without trying. It's been the longest month ever! I have an appointment on 2/15 and hopefully I will be able to star my third cycle with Follistin (and second with IUI). I was feeling very sad when I started writing but now, after telling you my story I feel a little better. Thanks for listening. Again, I wish you the best. Your story gives me hope.

hi Nico,

I've been emailing with Pixi and thought I'd pop in here to say hello too. I'd like to make it sunday, though I'm not sure yet if I can manage it as that is shaping up to be quite an intense day for me. See my most recent post, if you'd like, for the details...

Any plan yet for this weekend?

Hope to see you soon.

NCD said...

I will see you there. I can find the place.

See you Sunday

Sorry - I forgot to answer your question - NPO=Non Profit Organization.

I hope you are right about it being sooner rather than later, but ya know I tend to jump the gun.
