I've had another break from blogging, mostly because I've had nothing new to say. I'm still not pregnant. BUT we have new hope as today we began the next step of our (in)fertility journey. 8 weeks ago we had our first appointment at the fertility clinic. I was sent for more bloods to retest my … Continue reading IUI: The Next Step
A nice relaxing picture of a sunset from my holidays for this post as I'm currently trying to let it inspire my mood. Channelling all calm and relaxed energies... I'm finally being referred to the Fertility Clinic (YAYY!) but my appointment is not until October (BOO!). OCTOBER. And on booking the appointment, they very helpfully … Continue reading Patience is a virtue. Then I’m clearly going to hell (and I’m taking a load of Prolactin with me apparently).

That would be a no. Ok then, what about sipping a few margaritas in Mexico? … Continue reading Where not to go on holiday when trying to conceive
"Don't stress" "Forget about the fact you're trying" "Do you really think daily ovulation testing is going to help? You don't want to become obsessed" Seriously? You might have heard something similar if you're also TTC. I know people are just trying to be helpful but, sorry hun, if you're not in my position then … Continue reading “Try not to get stressed about it”
In August last year my periods had their own little hiatus; I didn't have one for 4 months. It was so frustrating because that meant there was zero chance of getting pregnant as I wasn't ovulating.
