Fertility Clinic Appointment 2 | May 2017

It's been a long and hard four months since our last appointment and we finally have some answers. Following on from the first appointment, I had the various blood tests need to create a full hormone profile of my cycle and awaited the results. I've previously mentioned what a mind f*ck infertility is and the best outcome for this appointment would be that I don't ovulate and the worst case, that I do ovulate and more investigative work would need to be undertaken which, would be bordering on unexplained infertility -  the dead scary stuff.

Piss Pot Poor Professionals 💸

Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt recently struggled to understand / define the complex reasons as to why nurses are reported going to food banks, like being flat broke isn't the reason why. I can understand why people earning higher incomes would fail to comprehend that qualified professionals are struggling to put food on their tables but the majority of people know that nurses aren't the only piss pot poor professionals out there. Being a professional often means having contracted hours and a pro rata, per annum salary that is above (if only slightly) NMW, based on experience and level of qualifications but being on a salary above NMW doesn't mean that surviving financially every month is possible, I should know.

Update Your Skincare Routine // Pixi by Petra

I've been wanting to update my skincare routine for a while and feeling a bit bleh about myself was the perfect incentive to start having a snoop around some routines that would be suitable for my skin that is almost as problematic as me. After perusing some of my favourite blogs, I decided I was going to treat myself and try out some products from Pixi, it's not often I'll go all out and buy full sized products for my skin let alone a whole haul but I had an inkling that Pixi might be the one for me, and I was right.

Infertility makes me ugly

I know it's irrational and terribly problematic to say that fertility defines my level of attractiveness but it does and I promised to be candid with this series so here's some ugly truths about infertility 😟.  
I'm coming out of this phase (thank goodness that that's what it was) and am back to making an effort with my appearance and feeling comfortable in my skin again but for a few months I've felt ugly and unattractive and what's disturbed me more about these feelings was my complete lack of motivation to do anything about it. It was almost as though I was punishing myself, as though I deserved to not find my faulty body attractive or be comfortable within it.
