Could My Dreams of Becoming an Infertility Rockstar be Coming True?

You'll notice that some of my posts have either been heavily edited or deleted altogether. What once was my haven to spill about anyone or anything I wanted will likely disappear next week, making way for a more public and less anonymous forum...and I'm completely OK with it. Why?

Because we're going to be on Good Morning America next week talking about infertility, people!

Talk about REALLY coming out of the closet! I guess we figure go big, or go home.

We're not completely sure when it will be aired (and I'm fairly certain it will be on the weekend edition), but it should be sometime next week and when we find out, we'll let everyone and their Grandmother know. The focus is more specifically on male infertility and was prompted by a brief interview Mr. S provided to Conceive magazine awhile back. We just found out about this yesterday and after finding out that they'll be shooting at our house, you better believe I've morphed into a crazy cleaning lady and, 'oh my God I'm still wearing maternity clothes, I better get real people clothes' lady. Also, 'damn why couldn't this have happened AFTER I lost the baby weight?' lady.

Oh, and my real name is not Shelby, and although I considered just blogging under my real name after this, I think I'll maintain it. I'd like to think of Shelby as my infertility warrior name, kind of like Beyonce and her Sasha Fierce alter ego, except in real life and while using my real name, we're still infertile!

So stay tuned and we'll let you know the who, what, where and when. We already know the why!

Awesome. :-) That is awesome and I hope you're able to post a clip or something!! (says the cable-less, woman with no tv channels).

Lorraine said...

Wow! I am so impressed - especially since it has been important to you to make a more public effort. I just didn't know it would be a nation-wide public effort!

Go for it, and do us proud!

I am so excited about this!! I am going to set my DVR to record EVERY EPISODE NOW so I don't miss it! My husband is going to have his TESE in March and is asking me 501 questions...but doesn't have time to get on the computer and read blogs. I think seeing the TV show would be awesome for him to see. WEEEEEE!!!!!!

OMG, rockstar indeed!

GMA appearances always make me think of What About Bob? If you're choosing between bust and rifle, go with bust.

Claudia said...

Hey WOW! That's beyond fabulous.

I can't see GMA here in the UK... please tell me it will be available online!

OMG THAT IS FRICKIN FANTASTIC!!!! I am so excited and I can not wait to see it!

I can say I knew her before she was famous. LOL

Courtney said...

That is so cool. I think we'll call you Shelby Fierce after this. Good luck and as soon as you know when let us know so my DVR can be ready!

Ashley said...

Totally exciting! Congrats! I was hoping after reading this that we would get to see Baby G. Woohoo!
