Another month, another trying to conceive disaster

Another month, another period. Another failed month trying to conceive   I apologise to those who are squeamish and think that is far too TMI. You may wish to stop reading if that is how you are feeling. But this month marks yet another unsuccessful cycle and rather than getting used to the pain and disappointment I am finding each and every cycle more and more difficult. You would think a diagnosis of infertility would at least make me expect the worst each time round but no I still find ... Continue Reading

My heart is with Manchester and parents everywhere.

Heart with Manchester
I had a whole load of posts I planned to be writing today about an array of different parenting things but in light of the horrific events in Manchester last night I am finding myself unable to focus.

Parenthood is such a hard battle and one of the joys of this battle is letting your child off free into the world ... Continue Reading

Infertility Journey: Got a diagnosis.

So as I mentioned in my previous post I have been MIA due to a lot going on with trying to conceive. I mentioned last year about the early miscarriage we experienced in November, I shared a 'month in the life' vlog over on my youtube channel and I began to explain that it looks like we are experiencing secondary infertility. Well in March we reached our 1 year trying to conceive anniversary which is the point at which the doctors will begin investigating why you haven't fallen pregnant yet ... Continue Reading

Where have I been? New May goals

May goals
Dear blog land,   A confession of abandonment from a humble lax blogger. I have been lax and lazy and distracted.

Myself and Fabio have both had some time off work so have been getting some much needed family time and I have been trying to avoid my laptop. That being ... Continue Reading
