Whilst in Paris, I stopped in at Galleries Lafeyette. THE most amazingly beautiful department store I’ve ever seen!!
Whilst there I picked up a loose leaf “tea wand”. It’s beautiful!
Simply fill with your loose leaf tea of choice and pop in cup of hot water. Twirl it around a bit = lovely cuppa herbal !
Here’s me drinking my Ayurevedic “harmony” tea!

This week I have been very excited to start seeing a Zita West Accredited Acupunturist called Ian, who is based in Hove. Who knew there was one based in Hove!?
Whilst going through my case history and hearing myself talk about my diet and lifestyle, it sounded like I really shouldn’t have any trouble getting preggo. I don’t smoke or drink, I don’t eat crap food, I don’t drink caffeine as much as I would like to, I don’t do drugs and I take all the right supplements. I’m not stressed and I’m essentially happy.
So in reality, why isn’t it happening?
Maybe I should start blaming my hubby ?
Is there really anything more I can do? Or anything more I can restrict?
Whilst all around me my friends and colleagues announce their first babies, and then their second babies.
Infertility is like a silent scream, all day, everyday.

This is great! Really interesting x
The second part of my ectopic story is that I needed to have a Methotrexate injection about 10 days after my laparoscopy.
The reason for that was because my hcg levels began to rise again.
That’s really hard. This hurt a lot and brought up some emotions. Obviously, all sad. Obviously, all desperate.
Methotrexate is a drug they give to chemo patients to stop cells multiplying, but it has applications for ectopics too. Some info here
They administer it via intramuscular injection into the top of your bum. The nurses that gave me my injection both wore black aprons when they gave it to me, as it’s some seriously harsh stuff!! This totally freaked me out.
All I wanted to do was draw a line under this whole sorry situation and things just kept getting worse!
After I had the injection I had a considerably amount of bleeding in my mouth and nasal passage, as it affects that tissue, but the worst was the crushing tiredness for weeks after.
I was also told to not ttc for 3 months due to the increased chance of birth defects.
Could this whole situation be any shitter?
