If I think about the relationships, connections, people and even conversations I’m having now in comparison to 3 years ago when I first started trying to conceive, the difference is astounding. I’m so much bolder, more confident and self-assured about talking about myself, my body and my struggles than ever before and that has a…

Cheers, dear readers, Happy New Year to you all! You have heard me say it here before but it is worth saying again. There is much healing power in the power of community. Thanks to the Global Sisterhood community that I am honored to be a part of, I have come to know Justine Brooks…

Happy New Year one and all!   Welcome to the first Slow Swimmers and Fried Eggs post of 2018! Wow, what a difference a year makes. I never thought I’d be writing a blog, living in a beautiful house or be facing redundancy this time last year, but here I am and all those things…

The worse the year, the bigger the New Year’s Eve party! This is my new motto – I came up with it 2 minutes ago and I’m sticking with it!   I love these days in between Christmas and New Year, when, if you’re one of the lucky ones who don’t have to work, these…

Hello! So happy to be writing my first post for this brilliant blog that Cathy and Eric have worked so hard to create. It’s a wonderful thing for a fertility clinic to give a voice to people who are going through the pain of infertility first hand and who can offer raw and honest perspectives…

Cheers, dear readers, With Thanksgiving upon us, the power of positive thinking cannot be over-stated. I can tell you from personal experience that my entire world started to turn around when I took the focus off of what I lacked, and started to focus instead on being grateful for what I did indeed already possess….

Cheers, dear readers, I recently had the incredible good fortune of seeing one of my heroes, Brené Brown speak live at George Washington’s Lisner auditorium near my home. I was blessed by a friend offering me her ticket to this sold out event when her day’s tasks started to get out of hand for her….
