    8) A Wonderful Week Away In Mauritius With The Family

    We have just returned from a wonderful week away in Mauritius with my family, celebrating Big Daddy’s 70th Birthday. This much needed break away couldn’t have come at a better time for Chris & I and my family. It was the perfect opportunity for us to get away and escape all the dramas that life has thrown at all of us recently! Spending time with my family is one of my most favourite things to do. Feeling completely comfortable (especially as I feel negative towards myself at the moment) and making memories with my favourite people….what a wonderful week! It’s amazing how much a tan can help you to feel instantly better about yourself….even when is it now all peeling off due to getting burnt 🙁

    7) Kim…..Amazing Skin & Some Time Just For Me!!!

    I started having facials back in the spring of 2017. I was very skeptical when my mum bought me a voucher with her skin therapist, thinking that my skin was fine. After my first appointment I was instantly hooked. Introducing to you: Kim….your skins new best friend and the reason your bank account will be very sad every month!!! But all for good reasons! Kim has introduced me to Dermalogica products. My skin has thanked her ever since. I am now the proud owner of lots of dermalogica products and I have become obsessed with my skin care routine, which I have learnt is very important. Read more

    6) A Heart Felt Thank you!

    I launched the website today and I am absolutly blown away by everyones positive responses to my posts. Chris encouraged me to write the blog and I wasn’t sure at first, feeling super nervous and worrying what others might think. But now I am certain I have done the right thing. If this process helps one other person then it will be worth it. I have read other peoples blogs about infertility struggles and it has really helped me, especially knowing that other people have the same feelings and thoughts as me. Read more

    5) A Brand New Year and Feeling Positive for 2018

    It’s the 8th of January 2018 and I am walking with my head held high into a brand new year, full of positivity. I have been busy writing up blog content from the previous few months. I am excited to share my thoughts and feelings with you all, but feeling scared and apprehensive at the same time. I feel vulnerable and that is not an emotion I have felt much before the past year. Although sharing our journey seems like an easy thing to do….it definitely is not. I am not writing to offend others or make people feel sorry for me, I just want to help other women going through a similar situation and allow people to feel like they are not alone. It is also a way for me to let out my emotions. Everyone’s story is different and people deal with things in different ways.

    4) The Medical Menopause – The Truth!!!

    How do other women get through it? It is quite frankly horrific!

    I had my third implant on 5th January 2018 and I am not sure how my symptoms can get any worse. I had an emotional breakdown while I was with the nurse, her name is Pat and she is a wonderful lady. Pat didn’t seem shocked as she probably sees it everyday! She informed me that I will probably experience worse symptoms again. Great news! Read more

    3) Recovery, The Start Of The Menopause & Family Celebrations

    Recovering from a laparoscopy isn’t too fun…..although it is a fairly non-invasive procedure the air they put in your abdomen causes all kinds of issues. Firstly I really struggled to wee…..never an issue I have experienced before as it turns out that having endometriosis on your bladder makes you want to wee constantly!!! (although I only just realised this was the reason for my constant need to wee). Secondly I looked around 20 weeks pregnant due to the bloating…..which was a low point for me, as it made me more aware of the bump I was missing out on.  Read more

    2) Surgery Day & Bad News

    I went into hospital on the morning of 6th November 2017 for my surgery, feeling excited about the prospect of being fixed and planned to get pregnant soon after. Fortunately, as I work in a hospital I was not too worried or scared about the operation, as I knew it was very common and I had a great team of people looking after me. I had done a lot of research into endometriosis and decided that I couldn’t possibly have it severely as I didn’t have severe pain or excessive bleeding. So I assumed all would be ok, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Read more
