The Day 33 Curse

I started spotting on Friday and I knew it was game over. I just waited for the blood to arrive. I wrote “I’m at 16DPO with a temp dropping ever so slowly. After 16 decent temperatures, most women would test

I was yapping away at acupuncture telling my fairy godmother about the lovely egg I saw on the scan, when I spotted these chickens on her shelf. She asked if I wanted them because she felt these chickens and their

HyCoSy, husband & gratitude

What was it like when you started your infertility medical investigations and journey? I feel like I’ve just graduated to the big girls club and that this shit just got real (as if it wasn’t real enough before). The HyCoSy

First fertility appointment with the NHS

Writing this while I wait to be seen by a gynaecologist. It’s a beautiful day, the hospital is creepily quiet and it’s the first time I’ve seen the car park empty. I’m reflecting on this journey, determined to believe that

Anovulatory cycle – my very own K2

Just as things were getting better with my cycles, K2 was placed before me and all I can do is stare at it. The anovulatory cycle. I’ve been trying really hard that it just feels like a… I guess a

Human me.

I haven’t been blogging because it’s that time of the month and I’ve been so focused on just getting through the week. I needed quiet time and space to just inhale and exhale. I’ve been silently reading and absorbing. I’m

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