Turning 40!

So as I reflect on a rollercoaster of a year, which has seen me experience so many mixed emotions crammed into a short space of time, I realise that it really has been a case of fight or flight for me at times. As I’ve said before this year’s experiences have made me reflect a […]

Reflecting!

I don’t know whether it’s my age, my current status in life or my egg freezing experience, but I sure have become more reflective recently. When I came out the other side of egg freezing, in that I mean safely having eggs in the bank, I definitely began to look back on the choices I’ve […]

Talking freely!

Well, what can I say, the reaction I have had from sharing my ‘Being Anonymous’ post has been totally amazing. Thank you to everyone who has contacted me and the subsequent messages I’ve received about my interview with Valerie Landis from Eggsperience, which went live yesterday. If you’ve not seen it yet, you can watch […]

Being Anonymous!

If you’ve joined me since my original posts, you will know the reason I started this blog is to help others, by sharing my experience of egg freezing. Up until now, you will have noticed that I have remained¬†‘faceless’ throughout my blog. By that I mean there are no photos of myself and if you […]

Reasons for egg freezing!

I recently came across this article http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3778407/The-REAL-reason-women-freezing-eggs-Women-waiting-perfect-father.html?¬†and as with most articles I come across in the media I am somewhat sceptical, especially in ‘certain’ papers, but as this article was so on topic I tried to approach it with an open mind. I was very surprised at some of the stats in this research, firstly […]

Fertility Drugs

Fertility Drugs and side effects! The long list of possible side effects were explained to me before my treatment, so I mentally prepared myself for all eventualities, but for the first time in a while I actually felt lucky. I only experienced a little bloating towards the end of 10 days of injections, not even […]

Ups and Downs!

Ups and Downs! Life is full of ups and downs, some people experience more than others, but as a women I feel that sometimes I’m not in control of a lot of them. They creep up on me without any apparent rhyme or reason, often leaving me overwhelmed and confused. We all know the crazy […]

Human pin cushion!

#Human Pin Cushion So as I find myself stood at ASDA’s very glamorous pharmacy counter, I found it quite ironic that an expensive Harley Street clinic had suggested this was the cheapest place to order my drugs! I wondered just how many other patients went to the lengths of buying their drugs at ASDA?! I’m […]

Egg Count!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Egg Count! How many women can say they’ve given much, if any thought to how many eggs they have ‘in reserve’, what that even means, or what’s actually happening during the ovulation cycle. I bet the answer is that most women only start to think about this when they try […]

Counselling!

Counselling! I love a good wedding, who doesn’t? So with everything I had been through at the start of this year, and what I was about to embark on I was really looking forward to a summer full of hen parties and weddings, or that’s what I thought! As fertility treatment is such an emotional […]
