Quitting Coke Day 2 & 3

Hi, my name's Kate, and I'm a Cokaholic. I'm quitting coke. I want to say it's for my health, and to an extent it is. Mostly, it is because I am desperate to have a family.

Training for the Marathon of Fertility

I feel like I'm in some sort of 'training phase' for a Fertility Marathon. I'm taking tests, getting a 'starting medication' regime sorted, trying to make better lifestyle choices and planning which route of the Marathon to take.

Fertility – Finding My Specialist

Since I had several Panic Attacks and Anxiety attacks last year around IVF and my husband not being allowed in the room for the extraction, I tried a variety of ways to get support.

At worst it's leading to me to earlier grave, at best it's just having major impacts on my day-to-day life. Over the past few years, I've become more open and... Continue Reading →

How to make a plan

I have a lot of plans.   Some of them are fully formed, have come to fruition and then I've moved on. Some of them I'm in the middle of. Many others have been scrapped along the way... and that's ok. In fact, it's better than ok! It's what you have to do! If you... Continue Reading →

I’m SO changeable

Last time I posted, I closed down this blog and moved onto other things. And that totally made sense at the time. This blog was really meant to be about my spiritual growth, my home and future family, etc. but with the disappointing IVF fallout situation, I really didn't have anything to blog about. So,...
