Autumn Breaks

29 weeks into our PCOS pregnancy and I am finally home after a 3 day residential break away with our young carers. It has been both a wonderful and tiring experience, but I feel immensely proud for organising and managing another successful and physically demanding residential activity in the midst of growing a baby! For…

Friendship and Fertility – Part 2 – ‘The Club’

Fertility or rather infertility and the great trial of my lack of ‘mom club’ membership in life was something that had often plagued me for some time during a period in my life.

Our Fertility Journey

Now over half way through our first pregnancy, I find myself feeling reflective of our time spent ‘in our season of wait’ before our BFP. I am aware that our journey didn’t take the route that we were gearing ourselves up for, and that ours didn’t have the obstacles that so many other couples out…

It was a beautiful if somewhat eventful week, but thankfully for…

Back to Nature

This past Monday on our joint day off we decided to take a mini road trip, just the 2.5 of us. Although we have been lucky enough to be bopping around from one activity to another, it has been sometime since we did a little adventuring on our own without the rest of the family…
