Over the weekend I travelled to a grief and loss workshop. I won't go into detail but it did help me understand my grief and how it'll never go away but I'm learning how to live with it. Milestones will be the hardest and that's ok too. It's ok to take the time out I... Continue Reading →


Prep for cycle 5

So my next IVF cycle is number 5. I'm being optimistic and know this will be the lucky one. I've been doing everything I can to prepare for the next cycle and staying as calm as possible.
