I’ve read the book “Inconceiveable” by Julia Indichova. Its about her struggle to conceive her second child. Much the same as myself, Julia was diagnosed with high FSH (really high FSH) and was told that she would never conceive a child without the help of donor eggs. The book is about all the things she does in order to have her baby. And indeed she does become pregnant naturally.

Its a good read. I would recommend you read it if you want to hear a success story. I also found it inspiration. Its nice to know that I’m  not the only one who would literally do whatever it takes to have a baby.

I’ve decided that I’m going to do some of the activities she does in the book, and I’m going to start with Iyengar Yoga.

Luckily for me they run this class in my gym and its on Tuesdays. Huzzah!

So now I’m off to baby massage with the lovely Lucy!

Evening Primrose Oil

I was reading an article on line at regarding the benefits of using evening primrose oil to enhance your fertility. Apparently, the evening primrose oil is a Native American Cure-all, with a long history of being used to heal.

So I went and bought some. I thought it may be worth a go and certainly wouldnt do any harm.

I have a long history of doing whatever it takes to fall pregnant. I was told that I would never have my own baby and that my only option was donor eggs. I was only 31 at the time. Being dismissed by the NHS and asked whether I was “having hot flashes” really lit a rocket under me and thus started the quest to try all means possible to have my baby.

So now I’m going to try again for a sibling for my little man. Hubby says “no more IVF” I dont blame him either because I’m not too keen myself at the moment. So lets try the natural way first.

I am also drinking the fertility tea.



I’m in Recovery

Although I’m a “recovering infertile”, that hasn’t stopped me from being totally consumed with weather I can or will ever fall pregnant naturally. Infact, the whole concept of a “happy accident”, is wholly alien to me. I wonder what it would be like?
