About Me

So here are the facts....
I started this blog when i was married and had just found out I couldn't conceive naturally; I wanted others to know they weren't alone. We had been trying for a couple of years with no luck and a trip to the doctors and some tests revealed i had high testosterone levels and probably PCOS meaning i would need some help to conceive. I did got on to conceive naturalt and now have  a beautiful baby boy Zak. The reality now is I am a single mum absolutely winging parenthood and this blog has become part of my therapy and healing as i battle to raise a beautiful baby boy and a dinosaur of a dog! I hope you laugh & cry through this as much as I have...

About The Blog

I really wanted to create a blog where I could share my frustrations, my hopes and fears on this journey. One thing that became clear to us was we just don't talk about Infertility enough, especially in the UK. We know one other couple who have gone through hell to achieve their family and we are so lucky to have their advice and tips, because without them I definitely would have gone crazy by now! We are getting better talking about miscarriages and other areas of pregnancy and babies, we have never done previously but infertility still seems such a grey area. Maybe we choose to shy away from it and maybe its too upsetting or uncomfortable to talk about. But as that old saying goes 'a problem shared is a problem halved'. We are fortunate enough that it is 2017 and there are so many options out there for couples facing infertility - we just need to make it known! I wanted to create a brutally honest blog that starts right at the beginning. There are so many success stories out there and their struggles are only touched upon, I want to go deeper and really reveal what its like to stare down this often lonely path.
