More than endo-Monday, number 3: sustainable travel

In one of my earlier posts, I already mentioned my passion for travelling. Travelling has always been very important and inspiring in my life. As my das had his own travel agency, my sister and I grew up seeing many parts of the world and always doing and visiting new things. It wasn’t until a…

Is adoption an option ?

I always thought getting pregnant would be something natural, easy and quick, without big issues and without needing help in any way. I never thought about the possibility of having to try for several years, never thought of alternatives to naturally conceiving, nor did I think of the possibility that I could stay childless forever……

More than endo-Mondays number 2 – I love supping

Second time I write my ‘more-than-endo-Monday’ post, this time about my second passion: sports! I always needed a lot of sports and movement in my life, which always helped me to be in balance and full of energy. (Which is a good mix with my endometriosis, which is actually an energy-robber) I immediately notice when…

Sons only please

Endometriosis seems to run in the family, according to different research. When I look at my family, this seems to be true. My mom didn’t seem to have it though. She got easily and immediately pregnant as she planned and she never complained of having pain or discomfort during her period. (Unfortunately, my dearest mom…

More than endo-Monday – nr 1: Wanderlust & travelling

Looking back at all of my posts since I started out this blog 2 months ago, I realized that my readers actually don’t know much about me and decided to devote 1 post a week to topics which are not about endometriosis or trying to get pregnant. I will share with you my passions and…

Am I the only one left?

‘Am I the only one left?’ Have you ever asked yourself this question as well? When your best friend, your colleague, your cousin, your neighbour, … all get pregnant and have one baby after the other, I know it can be frustrating at times and I am currently going through quite a difficult time with…

Getting pregnant with endo: let’s talk about s*x

Because of my endometriosis, I know that my chances of getting pregnant the natural way are smaller than average, so I have been researching quite a lot about how we can optimize our sexlife to maximize our chances of having a baby. We want to do everything right, without (if possible) taking all the fun…

Too many pregnancy tests ? (nr 19)

I feel almost ashamed to write it down, but it’s true… I took the 19th pregnancy test today in 2 years time. It starts to feel a bit like a routine. In the beginning I would take every test together with my husband. But after doing that for 6 months (and 6 tests) I preferred…

The ABC of getting pregnant

`Since we have been TTC for so long, I hope our next BD will lead to no AF and me feeling PUPO, so I can take a HPT and maybe have a BFP after I POAS.` (For those of you, for whom this is just gibberish, the meaning of this sentence can be found at…

How I stay positive with endometriosis?

Dear readers, I do not want to pretend I am positive all the time. Nor do I think that we HAVE to be positive all the time. There might be days where you are just in so much pain, that you can not even think about … let alone BE positive. And thatˋs allright… sometimes…
