Thank God (no blasphermy intended,I am truly grateful) the days of women hiding their bumps under large unflattering frocks are long gone.. While pregnancy can at times be a trying  time for women as their bodies change and energy levels go up and down, todays women are celebrating their bumps in a multitude of fabulously fun ways. 

‘Doing something fun like body painting helps women celebrate their body changes’ says Vanessa who after a particularly terrible week decided to book herself  a body painting appointment.  ‘I came out of the session feeling alive, sexy and proud of my body. I was totally in love with my bump again. I highly recomend it’  

 Body painting is fast becoming one of the most popular of pregnant womens celebration experiences.  Many artists now offer a body painting session with a professional photographer included to give you an unforgettable keepsake of  your 9 month journey. 

All artists, body painters and anyone who offers fun experiences  for women to celebrate their bumps please leave your website addresses in the comments below so we can find you.

What a relief..no transforming into the wicked witch on IVF hormones.

No wicked witch appeared...what a relief

No wicked witch appeared...what a relief

With all the horror stories Id both heard and read about of how women react to the hormone treatment in IVF, I was absolutely terrified. My husband was too.

Im at the best of times, a sensitive, sometimes over emotional soul, so I assumed that on the IVF hormone treatment, Id instantly transform into the wicked witch from the west.   

How surprised we have been. There’s been no change in my mood at all. Its such a relief!!

Sure Im a little more tired than usual, though that could easily be caused by the early morning appointments for blood tests and ultrasounds that are apart of the process in this stage.

On the whole though, theres been no adverse reaction at all. I feel pretty normal. Its really fantastic!!

Tomorrow we have yet another blood test and ultrasound and after the doctor recieves these results, he believes he’ll probably be able to set the schedule for next step of the process, the procedure where they remove my eggs for fertilisation. 

Its amazing how smooth the process has been so far. Both my husband and I feel pretty relaxed and are enjoying the sweet connection created by the morning ritual of him giving me the hormone needles. He was very nervous about doing this, but now sees its really quite easy. We didnt think it would be such a soft and gentle experience. 

My chinese doctor, whom I have visited weekly for accupuncture treatments during this whole adventure has told me she’d like me to have a treatment on the day they take the eggs out and on the day they put them back in, she wants me to have a treatment both before and after the process.

She is such a gem. I call her my emotional wellbeing angel and I couldnt imagine going through the IVF treatment without her. She has offered me a space to share any fears and has treated me according to these. With much of my fear now melted away, she simply continues to ensure my chi(energy) is flowing freely hence helping my body to best deal with the increase of hormones and prepare for pregnancy.

Blessings to her, to my doctor and to the universe for the support I really feel I am recieving.  

Until next time,

much love
