So an awful lot has changed since my previous post in a pretty short space of time. When I last posted I talked about our last frozen embryo transfer, subsequent early loss and how we were planning another transfer for October. Sadly this has now changed. It is now looking like another transfer is on… Continue reading Adjusting
Lately I’ve been coming across a few posts on social media like this one that just wind me up! I mean wtf?!

Thursday we… Continue reading Playgrounds & Playdates
