Posted by balletslippers in The IVF rollercoaster, 02 October 2016 - - - - - - · 173 views

Yesterday my fiance and I received our blood test results. We are not pregnant.

We snuggled in bed before the test and discussed what we would do if the test was negative. We talked finances and timing and health. We decided that we wanted to transfer one of our frozen blastocysts straight away.

When we went in for the blood test, we discussed this with...

I'm not going to lie. I've been in lazy holiday mode so before I know it each day has finished and I've forgotten to write an update. But on a positive note, it's all been smooth sailing so nothing to much to report.

Up until the 7 day mark I was still walking hunched over. Not because there was pain or anything but more because...

Bathroom design essentials

Posted by AmeliaB. in AmeliaB.'s Blog, 25 February 2016 - - - - - - · 991 views

Designing the bathroom is something people pay a lot of attention to, because it needs to be practical and functional, but also well designed for relaxation. Next to the quality work of your handyman, don’t lose sight of good planning and designing as equally important things. A lot of the elements going into the design of the bathroom are fixed, and mist...

Better learning in aftercare:

My Story

Posted by Blogger of boys in Blogger of Boys, 06 February 2016 - - - - - - · 706 views

It’s impossible to imagine the devastating impacts of childhood cancer, and a little over two years ago, it was beyond my comprehension too.  Before the 6th  January 2014 the closest I had been to a little girl with cancer was in a lift at the JHH, and I remember being unsure if it was rude to look at her cute little bald head.  

There was no way I cou...

The beginning

Hey guys,

New to this so not 100% sure of how it works.

Quick introduction- I'm a 24 year old mum of a 5 year old boy.

Long story short, when I was 18 I found out that I was 7 months pregnant, so coming to terms with the fact that I was having a baby in a couple of months was incredibly daunting to say the least. After tossing up between adoption a...
