I need surgery! Trying to conceive/infertility update

A long overdue trying to conceive update here, so if you don't want to try about infertility issues then just more along! I haven't sat down and written an update since the beginning of June and a lot has and hasn't changed since then!

Every family is different, every child is different and it is ... Continue Reading

Another month, another trying to conceive disaster
