*NEW BLOG POST* - LINK IN BIO DETOX TO THE MAX So this is what was in our goody bag from the Tahira x Tryingtobeamum event last Saturday! Can't believe it was a week ago, and I promise this is the last time I will bang on about it! BUT I thought I would write up a post about it, hopefully giving you more of an insight into the day, some titbits of useful advice/ info and some delicious pics of some gorgeous products and people! I know, you feel like you missed out if you didn't come... well I'm not going to lie you did! Don't worry though, there is already talk of another one (with some different elements to it)! Who wants to come?! K x #detoxifyyourbeauty #cleanbeautyrevolution #greenbeauty #ttccommunity #ivfselfcare #ttcselfcare #ivfstrongertogether #ivfat40 #ttcbeauty
Just wanted to say a huge THANKYOU to everyone who came to our @beautybytahirauk x @_tryingtobeamum_ #detoxifyyourbeauty event yesterday!!! It was a fabulous afternoon and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! It was so lovely to learn new things, meet new people and try new fabulous products!... oh and purchase a couple of cheeky items 😉! We hope you agree there was something for everyone! The drinks flowed (thanks @johnnydwight ), the nibbles were devoured, the prizes were amazing and the smiles were infectious! Here’s to the next one! 😉💋💄 Huge thanks to everyone who contributed and to my gorgeous family for being the best “beauty” helpers ever😉! #detoxifyyourbeauty #ttcmakeupdetox #ivfselfcare #cleanbeauty #beautybytahira #tryingtobeamum 📷 @ttcsupport_daybyday
Woohoo!!! It’s here... I mean it’s literally here! If you are coming to the event today @hunter.collective look out for this sign on Farringdon Rd! Hunter collective is on the second floor!! See you soon! Xxxxxxx
I mean, do I even have to explain?! 😍😘 Nicky! #Repost @theconscientiouscook with @get_repost ・・・ Mango and Coconut skin enhancing energy bites. These delicious tastes of summer are heading to an amazing event run by @beautybytahirauk @_tryingtobeamum_ @melaniebrownnutritionist taking place at the really cool venue @hunter.collective this Saturday. 💚 Delicious 'melt in the mouth' bites with a sunshine flavour, these moist and fruity bites are bursting with skin boosting elements, so you can feel more beautiful as you eat 💕 We love: Mangoes because they are high in beta carotene, a fat soluable antioxidant that can help protect your skin from free radicals that can cause premature aging. Coconut oil contains antimicrobial lauric acid which enhances the immune system. #vegan #snack #treats #beauty #events #catering
This is me.. clearly. I’m just a little bit excited about our event tomorrow @hunter.collective . It’s going to be so lovely to see you all there and just enjoy a gorgeous afternoon! There’s still time to buy tickets, and @beautybytahirauk and I would love to see you. Tahira is going to be talking about clean make up, how you can create a capsule collection to revolutionise your make up bag and not break the bank! As well as her journey to clean, ethical practice. Melanie Brown is going to be doing her thing and parting with her amazing words of wisdom on all things good for us! And all whilst we drink nice drinks, eat nice nibbles and chat the afternoon away whilst creating some gorgeous looks! PLUS... the goody bag!! I mean who doesn’t love a goody bag?!?! If some of you are struggling for bubba care, just bring them along!! (Just let us know 😉) So that’s it really! Off for a quick lunch to celebrate my gorgeous friends 40th! #ttcmakeupdetox #detoxifyyourbeauty #cleanrevolution #ttccommunity #ivfselfcare #ethicalbeauty #goodtimeswithnewfriends
Finding the right image is hard sometimes isn't it?... it never quite captures the mood, and one of my ugly mug is not right either, and quite frankly you see enough of it! SO I chose this #ttclookforbeauty . It's one of the few flowers that actually bloom in our garden but it is rather pretty and it’s all about looking for the positive! So an update (which you can also get over on stories), this cycle is OFF! A pesky cyst on my left ovary seems to be the cause of the spike in progesterone, not the DHEA. Everything else looked pretty damn good, lining, other hormone readings, thyroid, just not the progesterone! After my bloods came back, they gave us the choice of going ahead with a natural IVF cycle (again) this cycle, OR waiting and doing a flare next cycle. They sort of left it up to us to decide, which I didn't find very acceptable. I mean we are paying them a ridiculous amount of money to give us the best possible care and advice and that's what we want. We want them to make a decision for us based on our history and their expert knowledge. And eventually they did. A consultant I really trust and who is always super honest with me, said that we should wait, and that's what we will do. We feel comfortable with that, because our gut told us that was the best thing to do. I think the thing that you forget when you go back into treatment after having been away, is the daily up and down! The good news one minute, the bad news the next, the constant rollercoaster of results, living on a thin wire of emotion! You forget, you really do, and however good a "space" you are in, it's hard for it not to affect you, however many times you have done it! So we're glad to have a bloody decision! It's only another three weeks, and that's three weeks of goodness and being good to ourselves, so we'll take that! Surely then the stars will align! Thanks for all the lovely messages. Legends as always! #ivteamround6 #ivfrollercoaster #ivfstrongerotogether #ivfat40 #ivfover40 #ivfselfcare #tryingtobeamum #luckyluckykeels
Wow! Natalie has done an absolutely amazing job at distilling all that was @fertilityfest into one podcast! It’s definitely worth checking out, and I feel very humbled to be a little part of it! Check it out! EP137 on fertilitypodcast.com #Repost @fertilitypoddy with @get_repost ・・・ What do you think of when someone says 'festival' to you. I'm often transported to the heady days spent swaying in a field with a load of strangers all caught in the moment that is so special to watching music in the open air. The idea of a 'fertility arts festival' might seem bizarre and I've had people ask me what it was all about. To be honest, it has to be experienced to be truly understood however by the wonders of digital content we are able to capture and share which is what we've done. This years @fertilityfest , for me, created some of the same emotions i've felt from my music festival adventures. Knowing you are a part of something special, that you are in the moment living something so unique. In my latest episode I hope to give you a taster, a showcase of what I thought was an amazing few days. I hope you get a sense of it from hearing what we're sharing. Big thanks to @ttcsupport_daybyday @_tryingtobeamum_ for sharing your thoughts to @tryingyears who you'll hear talking about her session and we had the other half of #teambobcat as @bobstrawbridge performed. There were some amazing performances and you'll hear a snippet from @cabaretjamie thomas_l_webb All of the audio from the #FertilityFest sessions will be available for you to listen to over the next week or so and I'll keep you posted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfmiracle #ivfsuccess #ivfstories #ivfstrongertogether #talkfertility #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #infertilitysisters #infertilitysupport #infertilitywarriors #ttcjourney #ttc #ttcsupport #ttcsisters #maleinfertility #fertilityawareness #fertilityjourney #fertilityfriend #fertility #fertilityeducation #fertilitywarrior #fertilitydiet #thefertilitypodcast #podcast
JUST THIS!

*NEW BLOG POST* TIME So there have been numerous posts heralding/ announcing/ bemoaning, what ever it might be, the start of the month of JUNE! And believe me, I am right with them! June is IVF Round 6 month, well we hope (I'll update on that !) , so JUNE has become the beacon of light in a long 3 month tunnel since our last round back in February. But it's weird isn't it? This absolute obsession, fascination with TIME that encircles this whole damn process. I'm constantly wishing it away, and then wishing it back again! Wishing that the weeks would go by so we can do another cycle, and then wishing that time wasn't going so quickly! This isn't a negative rant BTW... but if you want to, you can read more over on Tryingtobeamumblog.com!

For those that know.. blue door, red door! We are back! Day one bloods today back at good old ARGC! Thankfully it was super quiet so we sailed in and out! Requisite picture of Dwighty at breakfast after and so glad they put a flag in my toast, just in case i didn’t know 😂😂😂 Slight spanner in our seamless plan, in that I managed to slightly sprain my ankle yesterday (don’t ask!), so not ideal, but it is what it is! Come on round 6!! Be kind to us! #ivfat40 #ivfover40 #argc #ttccommunity #ivfstrongertogether #ivfoldhand #ivfteamround6 😉

Had to bring my own sunshine today... so made this! Ginger Miso Sunshine Soup @melissa.hemsley !! It is ridiculously tasty and I highly recommend getting involved 😉. The topping is a cheeky little mix of chives, fresh red chilli and pumpkin seeds (recipe says sunflower but it’s what I had). Perfect “warm” foods prep 😉 (whatever camp you fall in, hot or cold foods, a bowl of soup is never a bad idea!) #eathappy #ivfdiet #soupfordays #ivfselfcare #ivfat40 #ivfteamround6 #tryingtobeamum #ttccommunity #ivfstrongertogether

Well not a bad finish to a gorgeous week! What a lucky boy and girl! This was our view for dinner, best seat in the house! Perfect.... and just “some” of the ridiculous amount of dishes we consumed! Tasting menus without the wine pairings are just as amazing! 😉. There was even a pineapple dish 😉🍍.
