I haven't written for weeks. I couldn't. Something truly miraculous happened. Several weeks ago I was just feeling really off, I had a big night out planned so decided to take a pregnancy test to rule that out before giving way to too many glasses of wine. Sam didn't want me to, he thought I… Continue reading Announcement

Late night sobbing

Sam and I were chatting last night about a couple we know and how the husband has a new job. Sam asked me a question about them (I can't even remember what) but I responded with, 'oh that won't matter as she will be on maternity leave by then'. The comment stung  in my throat… Continue reading Late night sobbing


91 days and counting

Day one of my current cycle was 1st December last year. Today is the first day of March which makes me 91 days into this current cycle. The cycle which refuses to end.

During this research I came across this fantastic non-profit called 'Footsteps for… Continue reading Footsteps for Fertility Foundation

I found this study 'Licorice roots reduces serum testosterone in healthy women'. I'll give anything a whirl, so I ordered some liquorice root and since… Continue reading The rule, not the exception


A dedication to Sam

Sam and I don't really do Valentines day. We never have. There are card exchanges, usually (this year Sam gave me a Christmas card he found in the drawer...and they say romance is dead?!) but not flowers, teddy bears or over-priced restaurants. I'm fine with that, I definitely am a romantic, but I appreciate everything… Continue reading A dedication to Sam


The last 74 days

This is an extremely overdue post. Christmas has come and gone and we are already approaching mid-February. I haven't blogged as I have tried to switch off for a while from the trying to conceive journey. It's not that I haven't been thinking about it, I don't think its something I can ever not at… Continue reading The last 74 days
