  1. Hi Jessica you don’t know me but I just wanted to say congratulations to you and your husband on the birth of your gorgeous baby girl. I follow your blog and it is the only thing that has actually helped me during my own fertility journey. I find it incredibly difficult to talk to anybody about what I am going through, I just cannot seem to find the words and I really admire your openness and bravery.
    I have read a few of your posts where you discuss how you will continue your blog without alienating those who are still struggling to conceive and I just wanted to say please do not worry about us, you have done enough and should continue your blog as a proud mummy. My husband and I have been struggling with infertility for 6 years (3 miscarriages, 4 failed IVF, looking to start our 5th + final round of IVF when we can save up some cash), and I can assure you that your story only fills me with happiness. I have never not wanted to see your updates and look forward to reading more about your exciting times ahead. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to understand that I am not alone, for validating my feelings when I hated feeling them and most importantly for giving me hope x

  2. Hi! Oh I’m so glad that my blog has helped, you have no idea how much that means to me. I’m sorry to hear of your journey and that you are still fighting this battle, I wish there were a magic cure or piece of advice I can give, but all I can really say is that if you can keep going then I wish you all the very best, but to take very good care of yourself, especially mentally. Thank you for what you’ve said about my blog. I love writing and so I will find a way that works for me to continue. It does help to hear how you feel about it and to get perspective from the people who read it, so thank you very much.
    If I can help at all, please don’t hesitate to ask and be so very kind to yourself – this battle is brutal 💜💜 xx


  3. Aw thank you so much for your kind words and advice. It is definitely a mental battle isn’t it with the ups and downs you go through during each cycle. Luckily (like you) I have an amazing husband supporting me through it and have managed to ‘finally’ find the balance of enjoying life instead of just living for each cycle and seemingly putting your life on hold. I will continue to read your blog to help me through the tough times and look forward to seeing more of your posts x

  4. It is a complete mental roller coaster and unless you’ve been on it, it is impossible to understand. I’m glad you’ve got a supportive husband, it made all the difference to our journey, just to be on the same page together. Take care, be kind to yourself and let me know how you get on xx


  5. Wow! That’s amazing news, congratulations! Will this be your first? My mum loves being a grandma 😁 Millie is doing well. We had a good few weeks where she was really settled, the reflux has been flaring up lately which we think is due to teething, unfortunately it seems anything can flare it back up. I just have to remind myself that it won’t last forever. I can’t believe she’s nearly 5 months, the time just flies by! I don’t have as much time as I’d hoped to write, I can’t really keep up with my blog. But I am spending my time doing something pretty important, so I just have to be patient, hopefully the writing will come back.


  6. Thanks. Yes, it’s my first grandchild and my main feeling is one of slight panic that I’m not ready! I’m sure it’ll be fine when the baby comes and your writing will come back when you have a little more time

  8. Oh wow! That’s amazing, congratulations to you too! I always wanted twins, I thought they’d be the answer to my prayers as we won’t be able to try again and I’m sad Millie will be an only child….however, having lived through how hard Millie has been, I can’t imagine having two of them! I don’t think I’d survive! I take my hat off to you 😄 Thank you for reading and supporting me, I really appreciate it. Thank you very much.


  9. Thanks..Yes, it’s very hard to manage and my girls are just 5 months old..I think it will be more harder when they grow up..I am having sleepless nights and days, but I am grateful to God for my girls..I am now just learning!!! It’s like a rollercoaster ride.
