The results are in!

Well tonight we went to get the results from Dr S. The good news is… I’m mainly normal! (In blood at least! Shame about the personality!) We went through all the tests I mentioned on my previous post and they were mainly in the normal range. There was a tonne of info to take in…

Happy Monday!

So this evening it’s time to go and get our results (well, my results as it’s clearly me who has a problem!) from Dr S.  This is what I’ve been taking in the meantime, as recommended by Dr S.     From L-R: Vitamin D supplement Pregnacare Conception (female version is pink and male version is…

Family and chickens (and Dog)

This weekend I went to see my parents. They live a while away – a few hours – and it took a couple of train rides and a car ride to get there. I took Dog, because I don’t like to leave him.  The main reason I went to see them is because T was…

IVF 2, WTF?!

(Warning: Typical IVF related TMI.) So I’m on day 20 or something of my cycle, and yesterday I got what is pretty sure is my period. My period isn’t due for 2 weeks, so in effect I’ve had a two week cycle?! (I know people get breakthrough bleeding and stuff but this was fresh red…

Being a dragon isn’t necessarily a bad thing

I’m a woman of a certain age. (The age where if I ever manage to have a baby, I’ll be a “geriatric mother” – the old label which was used to define women who were over the age of 35 when they have their first baby. Here’s hoping that term’s died out!) I’m also a…

Two steps forward, three steps back

I don’t like to post about private private things, but sometimes I feel like I just need to vent. Today I feel like I’ve been making all this progress, trying to get a new job and new house and new fertility (ha!), but it feels like it’s two steps forward and then I’m running backwards….

TFIF!

This.    This week has been a bit of a slog. I like to keep profanity off this blog (for some reason I’m one of those people who worries about releasing swear words into cyberspace) but, really, thank €#%¥ it’s Friday! Anyone else enjoyed their week as little as I have? In the spirit of…

The hair down there

   © Brazilian Laser Hair Removal | FOREVER Laser Hair Removal (Warning: Some people might not like this content or find it offensive, in which case I suggest you don’t read it.) Hair is a feminist issue. Or that’s what we are led to believe. Revulsion at the very idea that women might have hair…

Why channel 5’s 10,000 BC: Two Tribes is required viewing

   Could you live as a caveman (/woman) in 10,000 BC? That’s exactly what the latest programme from the UK’s Channel 5 is (not) asking.  Ever since I saw the posters popping up around tube stations in London, and the adverts on telly, I was intrigued. Firstly, what the heck would possess anyone to want…

On grief and moving on

I think the saying is true: Life does go on. At various times in my life I’ve been grateful or resentful that is the case. It’s like: You have this big thing that happens to you and to anyone else it’s just a normal day. You look at people going about their daily business and…
