A women’s worth

This past year of my life has been a period of evolution and development, one of which I haven’t taken much time to reflect upon or appreciate. When becoming a mom, whilst carrying Finn, I was so in awe of my body, in awe of its process of creating life, sustaining it, carrying it, protecting…

How are you? No really.

Well dear Reader, it’s that time again. It feels like forever since I’ve shared something other than life milestone related stories. Unintentionally so, as as a parent, having time to reflect at the end of the day is a luxury that the majority of us cannot afford. So I’ve fell into the trap of sharing…

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. For a period of time I remember looking towards those friends of friends who had found themselves evolving into mothers, parents and…

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…

Cake and Celebrations

This month we have managed to spend a lot of time catching up with our loved ones and celebrating a lot of birthdays! I was especially thankful to be able to be part of celebrating my best friends birthday last week as it was her first time hosting at her lovely new home! The weather…

Resilience; a measure of how much you want something and how much you are willing, and able, to overcome obstacles to get it. It has to do with your emotional strength.   A word that I personally love, feel deeply connected to, or at the very least have learnt to appreciate during this journey of TTC to date. Resilience does not eliminate…

I am honestly delighted and pleasantly surprised to have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Maggie — whom I’d like to thank, she is a lovely fellow blogger whose blog From Cave Walls I have always thoroughly enjoyed following and getting to read her uplifting, positive and relatable posts as well as engaging with…

PCOS Positivity Part 5

It has been the longest time since I last did a PCOS Positivity post! Or any real fertility journey update related subject (other than how I’m focusing on enjoying the other aspects of my life) for such a long time now! Perhaps this is in part due to the fact that there hasn’t been much…

A little more kindness, a little less comparison

Comparison and fertility are never a great duo. I felt the need to write this post following on from a conversation that happened late last year now…but really stems from multiple instances and interactions that have occurred during our time TTC. If nothing else it is an observation I am sharing, in hope that I…

To a Happy & New Year

A whole new year, is there anything more exciting than a fresh start and all the promise that it brings?! It’s all a big blank slate and we have nothing but wonder ahead of what is to come in store for us!
