Fertility Journey

This is a long-overdue blog post - I know.  But I needed some time away from it all, I needed to find me again - the old Harri got a little lost in amongst it all last year, but I think I have found her again, scraped her off the floor, given her a good stiff talking to,  and am (sort of) ready to come back to this with a clear head and fresh eyes to tell you our story… I

We are now well and truly into attempt number 3 of IVF and to be honest I think that I have got to the stage where I just can’t wait for it all to be over, one way or another. The last few months, in fact most of the last year pretty much, has been one hell of an emotional rollercoaster for us both.  The whole process has really taken its toll on me both physically and emotionally, some days

It’s been a while again since I have posted any updates on our TTC (trying to conceive) journey, and with Christmas just around the corner I felt like now might be the perfect time to give a little review of our year gone by. 2018 has been a tough year for us, we are now into our 4th year of trying to conceive and have had two failed IVF cycles in the last few months along with some heart-breaking news thrown

One of the main reasons for me launching this blog was to build a platform on which I could share my research (and there is lots of it!) with the world from the discoveries I found on my own fertility journey, including the information below for fertility diet. Last November I turned 30 - it was a major milestone for me.  I naively thought, in my younger days, by the time I reached thirty I would be married with my first

Wahoo - I have nearly completed week 3 on my Keto/Paleo/Sugar Free diet challenge (still not sure what to call it now that I have added a few good, unprocessed, carbs). I am writing this blog a little ahead of time this week so that you guys don't miss your usual Sunday morning update! I am really surprised at how long I have managed to go without eating a single rubbishy chocolate bar! If no one else is proud of me, I
