Living Arrows 21/52 – Sleep issues! (AD)

Morning! Happy Monday & Happy Birthday to my lovely husband too! It has been a really mixed week here. Lots of great work has come my way, and financially I feel like things might be picking up a little now after a very quiet 8 weeks or so.

One thing that is not going very well at the moment is Daisy’s sleep pattern! Living Arrows 21/52 – Sleep issues!

Living Arrows 19/52 – Daisy learns to use the computer

Happy Monday. I hope the week ahead is going to be a good one for us all. Last week was quite a busy one in our house as Thomas was working in the garden on his days off getting it ready for some work we are having done soon. This meant that I had even more hours with Daisy to fill so I let her play some games on my MacBook for the first time – it was a real hit! Living Arrows 19/52 – Daisy learns to use the computer.

Riding the Emotional Tide: What to Expect When Using an Egg Donor (AD)

Medical innovation and advanced technology have given women who are unable to conceive with their own eggs the precious gift of a family. Before the development of IVF (in vitro fertilization), there were no options for women with diminished ovarian reserve or POF (premature ovarian failure) who wanted to have a baby of their own.

Women who are 35 and younger usually begin to seek assistance from an infertility specialist if they are unable to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse (if the woman is over 35 years old, she should seek help after 6 months). Now when faced with the diagnosis of reduced fertility, couples may explore egg donation as an alternative to help build their families. However; with this option come many new emotions, and it is important for couples to be aware of what to expect, as the process can be difficult for one’s emotional health, as well as women’s health.
