Sneak preview of prizes and a big thank you!

I’ve been busy getting together some of the prizes to send to Betty – note that these aren’t the final prizes.. just a glimpse of what’s planned. Betty’s been busy making some incredible additions (we all know how creative she is) and she’ll share the final prizes once she’s back.  We owe a huge thank you to Emma Cannon, Today I Hope, Sharon at Mom At Last and Marvel IVF for donating prizes.

Here’s a peek at the amazing prizes that were donated..

Eli won the infertility category and a signed copy of Emma Cannon’s book ‘Total Fertility.’ I’ve had to quickly pack it away so that I don’t keep it 😉 I am soooo looking forward to Emma’s new cookbook.

Sorry Eli, you don’t get the roses. Just the book.

Today I Hope treated the Grand Winner and the winner of the Best Expression in Show to special Japanese lucky cats. We LOVE them!

New To IVF as the Grand Winner won a Chizuru doll. Chizuru means “a thousand stalks.” A sweet prize with a sweet meaning.

Barren Betty won the Best Expression in Show category and was awarded a Japanese lucky cat. How cute are its cheeks? I just want to squeeze them!

On top of this … what New To IVF doesn’t know is that she won the winners cup (or erm mug)! 😉 Betty, Turtle and I figured the winner deserves a winners cup! Drawings are by the very talented and yet humble Betty.

Sharon from Mom At Last gifted a copy of her book about her incredible journey to motherhood to Infernal Infertile, the winner of Almost Won category.

The final gift comes from Marvel IVF, who may have initiated the start of a summer watermelon competition by sharing this! Here’s the stork pumpkin stencil that they used to carve their watermelon. Thanks to this little gift we all get to be winners 😀

Thanks again to everyone who supported this and joined in. You all rock!



I opened Pandora's box and infertility entered my life.

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.
