After a 7 week wait 🕙⌚⏳ which literally felt like FOREVER, as I just wanted a quick solution what do I need to do to get pregnant. That's it that's all I wanted to know.
After about 2 hours waiting and a 25 minutes consultation the conclusion was that I had PCOS and the i was overweight. I weighed about 12st and wore size 14 clothes.
They asked for my husband's sample so they could check he was all ok and took some blood from me.
Main thing that I was told was lose weight or you won't get pregnant. I was advised to take folic acid which I was taking the Seven seas Trying for a Baby ( see last post ) . That was it. Had to come back in 6 months times.
Ok I thought I can do that, I should be pregnant the next time I'm here. I did what I had to do, controlled my diet, did minimal exercise as work was crazy and was running around for that.
Fast forward 6 months still no pregnancy and my weight had slightly dropped. My stress level was increasing. Within these 6 months I researched about PCOS one thing that the DR failed to tell me is that no matter how much I diet or exercise PCOS at most times can be the reason for weight gain due to the hormones.
I would barely eat due to how hectic my work was and would get 2 meals a day breakfast and dinner. So how could I not lose weight when I'm barely eating.
Went back to my app after 6 months, same thing was repeated again lose weight or no pregnancy. No support, no further discussion, nothing to ease my stress and a further 6 months wait for another app.
Ladies and even partners of ladies who have PCOS and are trying to conceive please make sure you are the pillar of support for them. They need you more than you know. Its a spiral downhill when your trying for a baby and nothing is happening. They may not say it, but they need your love and support.
I had support from my husband who would say don't worry it will happen, be patient. #pregnancy#baby#life#conception#tryingtoconceive#tryingforababy#happypregnant#pregnant#happiness#journey#theworldisyours#nevergiveup#hope#love#mama#papas#mum#dad#mothers#fathers#family#babies#time#hubby#wife#love#pcos#superdrug#sevenseas#pregnacare

Seven seas trying for a baby.
After many many lectures from my mum, I visited my GP to find out what was happening with me.
Apparently for those that are unaware GP will only refer you to GYNO if you've been trying for 2 years+. They referred me to my local GYNO with a wait of 7 weeks before I could be seen. 😥😥 I mean I wanted a baby and I had to wait 7 weeks just to be seen.
So I started to do my research. I read that to get pregnant you need to take folic acid and vitamins. Apparently this really helps with conception and it's great for overall health aswell.
The main one was the 'Pregnacare Him and Her conception tablets' . At just about £19 for 1 month not going to lie thought it was a bit expensive. Read the reviews some mix reviews. So only tried these for 1 month. 💷💷 So started to look at other alternative tablets, and came across the 'Seven Eeas trying for a baby'. It was good on my wallet aswell at £5.29 for a months supply. You can also get them on offer at times it goes down to £2.50 that's when I used to stock up of these. ⭐⭐At the moment these are on offer 3 for 2 @superdrug.⭐⭐ Since that time that's all I used to take till the day I got pregnant which was 3 years later.
I looked at natural remedies aswell. Some say dates are really good for you, I ate those, pomergrante, cranberry juice. You name it and I researched the hell out of trying to conceive and did my best.... yet no baby in my tummy 😑🙁 #pregnancy#baby#life#conception#tryingtoconceive#tryingforababy#happypregnant#pregnant#happiness#journey#theworldisyours#nevergiveup#hope#love#mama#papas#mum#dad#mothers#fathers#family#babies#time#hubby#wife#love#pcos#superdrug#sevenseas#pregnacare#pregnacareconception
Decided to try the GOSH Foundation Drops after a friend raved about them, especially since I've been wanting a slightly lighter coverage foundation for summer. ⠀
Picked a bottle up at Superdrug, along with some NYX Pore Filler and today was my first time wearing both - I'm super happy with the results! ⠀
The GOSH Foundation is lightweight and matte, the shine stayed away really well and I actually loved seeing my summer freckles peeking through. ⠀
The Pore Filler was also great, basically a cheaper, cruelty free dupe for Benefit Porefessional which I used to use a lot. ⠀
Thanks for the recommendation @misshoneybare! 😘
Bare Minerals dupe! I've had this mineral powder foundation for a while now and its my new everyday favourite! It has very good buildable coverage and once its set into your skin it looks like you have used a liquid foundation! Bare Minerals is £27.00 in Debemhams but this is only £9.99 in Superdrug 😍
I am sharing a little bit of hand cream this evening and it is the @superdrug flutter range and I’ve had it some time but never used it, so decided to get it out and considering it was so cheap it’s so nice, it leaves the hands feeling super soft
Absolutely loved creating this summertime look, for the Marie Curie festival themed fundraiser on Saturday!! @superdrug 🍋💛

SUNKISSED. 💙 Two things I always want to last longer than the holiday itself; are my memories & my sun kissed skin! ☀️ I moisturise my skin almost as regularly as I pick up a camera; especially during & after I’ve been on holiday. I like to moisturise morning & night, to ensure my skin is as thoroughly cared for as it can be & my holiday feeling lasts that little bit longer - just not quite as long as the memories!👌🏼
This year I’ve added a new product to my holiday skin care routine. Body Glow from Skinny Tan (which you can pick up by clicking on the link in my bio 👆🏼) is the 4th product in the Skinny Tan range that I’ve tried, and it’s my absolute favourite to date! (Together with the roller, which is super cute!) Body Glow is a daily moisturiser, which builds up colour gently on your skin to your desired look, moisturising and helping prolong the appearance of your suntan, whilst moisturising your skin and giving it a really healthy glow. As I say, I used this a little before I went away, but now I’m back, I’ve been applying it every other day after a shower and it’s just helping to maintain my suntan colour at a level that looks really natural and makes my skin feel silky and smooth. It also has very little of that biscuit smell that often puts people off these types of products! 🙌🏼
There are a few little steps that I like to follow:
☀️ Ensure skin is thoroughly clean & free from any other product
☀️ Pump into hand and rub onto skin evenly
☀️ Be careful of knees & ankles
☀️ Wash hands!
The formula is non sticky and dries really quickly so you can dress pretty much immediately after application which is brilliant. I think this is a really great find - you can pick yours up by clicking on the link in my bio 👆🏼, or pasting this url into your browser; https://bit.ly/2L5LBlp
