Am I less than a woman for not having kids?

I know the feeling well enough. If it isn't said directly to my face, I know it's said behind my back ... So for those mothers that think this way, please know that Infertiles already feel diminished by not being part of your "group." Please keep that in mind, next time you say (or think) something like that.

Nice to see another Catholic feeling the same way I did ...

Coming from a culture where having children is seen as an important part of being a women, I can relate to the "social suffering associated with infertility" that's mentioned in this article.

This song is so frickin' hilarious ... and absolutely TRUE when it comes to dealing with Infertility. It may be a "commercial" to promote a pharmaceutical company, but the message behind it is very important: See a Reproductive Endocrinologist sooner than later if you're having trouble trying to conceive.

Introduction
Hi. My real name is Emily. As in "Apron Strings for Emily" ... my "alter-ego" in the blogosphere, where I write about child-free infertility and such. 

I'm Em "Ellie" here, only because I consider myself a Filipino-American version of Ellie, wife of Carl from the Disney-Pixar movie "Up." 

You know. The couple that loved each other and were completely passionate about each other ... but couldn't have kids of their own? 

Yep ... that's me and Hubby.
