Day in a A Life: Weekend Fun

I have been doing this working mama gig for about 3 years now, and really,   my weekdays are not the most interesting. Weekends on the other hand are different, especially so now that the man needs to work on shifts. This means on some weekends, it's solo parenting for me, and also an opportunity to spend 1-to-1 time with my cheeky monkey. Here's how one of my solo parenting Sunday looked like:

IVF Diaries - The IVF that did not happen

I wrote about what infertility taught me before. But, I missed out one thing, and that is always to be cautiously optimistic.

5 things yoga taught me about life

Picking up yoga again was one of the best things I did for myself.  Pre-kids, doing yoga was very much about losing weight, and getting in shape.

IVF Diaries - Cycle One, Day 6

My first scan took place on Day 6 of the IVF/ICSI process. I was lucky I did not need to do any suppression jabs due to my endometriosis. So, it was less poking than expected. This is the 5th day of taking my FSH injections. I was actually anticipating full blown grumpiness and bloatedness which surprisingly did not happen. Sounded too good to be true, which indeed yielded some worrying results.

Round up of February and March 2015

#monthlyreflections #ivf #growingup #5lovelangauges I said I wanted to do a monthly round-up starting this year. Then I forgot. Now that I remembered, I am thinking what I should start with. With a quarter of the year gone, 2015 has proved to be a year of reflections and adjustments for the whole family due to certain decisions we made. With that, I am certain it is going to get tougher throughout the year. But we will pull through!

The start of the IVF process

We wanted to have another go at SO-IUI and began waiting for my period of come. Days became weeks, and weeks became  months, and it didn't arrive. These things... when you want them to come, they don't. When you don't want them to come, they do. Instead of waiting longer, we walked into the doctors' office to change our plans. We will, rather we have just put our foot into IVF. Or ICSI to be precise. I did not know there was a difference, and I shall go into that difference in another post.
