Hey y’all! I’m Glenna and I write at 20 Something Going On 40. The last couple years have been very hard on my heart and especially recently after losing my twins. But I am happy to say that currently in my life my husband and I are preparing to try again for a baby. We will be doing IVF for the second time and I’m very excited! Praying for exciting times ahead!

Now, get to know a little more about Glenna with her answers to the Monday Snapshot “5 Questions”:

1) How long have you been blogging and how did you get started?

I have been blogging for a little over a year after I lost my daughter. It has just become a release for me. It lets me get what I have in my head out in front of me for me to face head on.

2) Tell us a little about your ALI journey and your family (3-4 sentences):

I have 3 babies that are all passed. 1 girl and 2 boys. I have 2 loving dogs and an amazing husband. This journey is a nightmare but it’s mine.

3) What makes you unique in the blogging world? (e.g. special talent, rare diagnosis, life experience)?

I believe the thing that makes me unique is suffering these losses at such a young age. And not only suffering loss but suffering through infertility as well. I feel that these experiences have made me feel a lot older than I am. Also I think my journey even before pregnancy. I.e. going through cervical cancer at 19, endometriosis, PCOS, and PID. These are all things I have dealt with and it hasn’t been an easy road.

4) One word to describe yourself: 

Adaptive

5) What blog or website (IF or not) would you recommend to others? Why?

A blog or website I often turn to would be ʺA Bed For My Heartʺ I found her on face book. The reason why I like it so much is because If I can’t figure out how to explain how I’m feeling or I’m feeling really alone I can turn there and realize that I’m not and that I am just another normal grieving mother.

  1. Stories like yours are a good reminder for the general population that ALI problems are NOT solely the problem of “career-driven” women who “waited too long” or whatever other b.s. the media says. Good luck with your upcoming IVF cycle!!

  2. Good luck with your cycle, it sounds like a story and a half and I’m off to hit your blog now.
