My name is Sam and I’m 32 years old. I’m married and live in Surrey, UK. I’m writing this blog for a number of reasons, but predominately because my husband (M) and I are having difficulty conceiving, and I’d love to share my progress with others as well as use this forum to try and keep me sane. We’ve been trying for 13 months now and are getting nowhere fast: I have been overwhelmed by the ups and downs and am surprised when feelings I didn’t know existed strike me when I least expect it.
You may have noticed that I mention a lack of patience in the title of this blog: this is an integral part of my character and of course contributes to our difficulty in getting pregnant: I’d love to learn the “Art of Patience” but I fear I have a long way to go. I want things immediately and am never prepared to wait – and so this fertility thing has really been a struggle.
The blog will also touch on other areas of my life, I am generally a positive person but have my own strange quirks, and I am the queen of procrastination. I also start new ventures , I get excited and buy everything I could possible need to support this new venture, and then.. I give up! Why? Answers on a postcard please. I love to write and my latest venture is writing a children’s book (age 3-5). I did a brilliant course at the end of last year but since that finished I am finding it difficult to sit down and work on it – which is frustrating as I have my characters and my story all sorted. I’m determined to see this one through.
Simple things genuinely make me happy, and that helps to keep me level: particularly during harder times. It sounds cliche but I have a deep love of food, and truly believe that diet is the key to a healthy and happy life. That doesn’t mean I limit myself to healthy food only, I’m completely obsessed with those Kinder bars and won’t admit to anyone as to how many I can eat in one sitting. Generally thought I’m working to a “everything in moderation” mantra. My other goal this year is to take my Grade 4 in piano – it would feel great to have accomplished something and my aim is to get to Grade 8 so I can teach.
Although there’s much more to it than that, I hope you will get to know me through my posts, so for now I’ll leave it there.
