The Pros & Cons of Age Related Infertility by Guest Blogger, Lori Shandle-FoxFeatured

Hi Friends!

It is absolute pleasure to feature as my guest blogger this week, one of my all time favourite funny ladies of fertility – Lori Shandle-Fox, author of Laughing IS Conceivable. Seriously, if you haven’t ready this book yet – stop reading this post now and go buy it, then come back here in sink your teeth into some of Lori’s funny over here :). And here she is… 

Is that the most idiotic title you’ve ever seen on a blog post? What “pros” can there possibly be to being diagnosed with age-related infertility or any other kind of infertility for that matter?

Surrogacy: The Pearl in My Oyster? by my guest Sarah-Jayne DuryeaFeatured

Hi Friends!

This week I have another fabulous guest. I absolutely love her style of writing and I’m sure there’s something in here that you can relate to! Here’s SJ… 


 

Behold the humble question mark. It looks suspiciously like a lightbulb that some tired graphic designer hasn’t yet finished. Incomplete, just like me. I’ve spent years working in private practice as a Psychologist, gladly helping people to solve their problems and to reach the holy grail of happiness. The unwritten rules about being a therapist are as follows.   Have an answer for everything (not everything actually has an answer – go figure) and never focus on yourself. Well, by the time I actually got round to me, it was much, much too late. I’ve spent years talking about gratitude and how to capture the happiness butterfly. Lecturing on the finer details of how going the distance is your best friend and that anything is possible if you just keep trying.

But guess what? It turns out that my life isn’t perfect, in fact, the thing I want most in the world I can’t have. At 41 years of age, I am a card carrying reproductively challenged individual or to put it another way, my bits don’t work properly. There: I’ve said it. Did the sky fall in? Nah.Continue reading

Guest Blog by Tiffany Jo Baker – He said, she said. 2 Versions of the Same Fertility Journey & How to Deal!Featured

Hi Friends!

It is my great pleasure to feature a wonderful writer, couples life & fertility couch and surrogate – not once, not twice but three times a surrogate! What a beautiful soul! I’m sure you will enjoy her message as much as I have. Here’s Tiffany…

Without a doubt, most people marry someone who is the polar opposite of them in many ways and areas. I have worked with a lot of couples and time after time, conflict arises from those differences.  What is almost humorous about this is that often times it was those “differences” that first attracted us to them.Continue reading

To the RUDE Stranger who thought it was OK to ask intimate details about my boys’ conception…at a Christmas Party!Featured

Hi Friends!

Before moving on to happier posts, I feel the need to get something off my chest and in doing so provide those who don’t know how to handle infertility some ground rules about what is and what is not ok to discuss, ask or refer to with regard to our infertility or children born via IVF / surrogacy.Continue reading

My Surrogacy Story…Featured

UPDATE:  Our beautiful boys, Maximus Vincent Smith and Alexei Felix Smith were born 20 July 2017 in perfect health and with fantastic weights!

They were fully developed and we only spent 4 days in the hospital – no NICU, we all stayed together in a room just for observation.

 

At time of writing (10 May 2017) ,our surrogate is currently 28 weeks pregnant with our twin boys. If all goes according to plan, they will be born around 7 August 2017.

This is the closest that my husband and I have come to getting our dream family and holding our babies in our arms.

First, a little background on my surrogacy discoveries …

It’s the start of another Amazing Year!

Hi Friends!

In between diapers, playing, teaching, washing, sterilizing and making bottles, feeding, laundry….and…you get the picture x2, I have been planning and drafting an awesome blog post to go with the start of another exciting year and somehow it just felt bleh.
