TTC: I saw this lovely post on my insta feed this week, about writing down the kinds words you'd like to hear on your fertility journey. (See pic above). So many of us resonated with it. And no wonder. It really struck me that so often we don't focus on the things we actually want, because [...]

TTC: My washing machine broke this week. It's been unwell for a while and I've been in denial, ignoring it. The haunting clanking noise it's been making has gone on for months, and then on Tuesday it gave up the ghost. Annoying. On Friday I left my house to teach a yoga class and I forgot [...]

TTC: Do you ever wonder to yourself, 'when will it be my turn?' Resentment is part of the fertility story for many of us. Resentment is such a corrosive, relentless feeling because it’s so obsessive. The amount of time anyone can go through the list of someone's faults, again and again can be very tiring. Time [...]

Learning to be grateful whilst trying to conceive is a tough. I remember thinking 'I don't want to be grateful for my life if it's without children'. Can you relate? Everything I write about here I think to myself when I was at my absolute worst if someone had said this to me how would I have [...]

How I would have loved a VIP lane to sweep me through those torturous 14 days of the two week wait (or 2ww).  Anyone who has been through it knows this living hell. These are the heady days between your pregnancy attempt and your pregnancy test. Emotions are raw. You second guess every feeling, every symptom. [...]
