TTC: How many times have you felt guilty as you ttc? Guilt is such a corrosive emotion that I felt many times during my fertility journey. I read this on my insta feed today which I could totally relate to, perhaps you can too: 'Today I feel that I'm drowning in guilt. Guilt that I want [...]

TTC: If you are not naturally patient, your ttc journey usually gives you a crash course in it. I hated having to be patient. Waiting has never been my strong point. I wanted to be at the end of the road with my babe in my arms. I didn’t want to be told to ‘hold tight’ [...]

TTC: This photo is of me around 4 or 5 years old. Goggles on head, cape towel around my shoulders. Robin to my brothers Batman. I love this photo. It reminds me who I really am, before life got in the way. When I start to give myself a hard time I look at her little [...]

TTC*: How many of us know we should be meditating as we TTC but don't seem to make the time? Maybe you've tried it and decided that it's not for you.

TTC: When you're struggling to conceive, being grateful is not a natural first step. I clearly remember thinking, "Don't tell me to be grateful for my life if it's without a child." I didn't want to hear it. But if I could have shifted my perspective slightly and asked myself instead, "What do I have in my life [...]
