The Conception Diaries #1 – Friday 4th September 2015

The Conception Diaries #1 – Friday 4th September 2015

Welcome to the first in my series of vlogs called ‘The Conception Diaries’. 

On Tuesday last week I introduced you to the fact that I would be publishing this series on YouTube and now, with some trepidation, I begin.

This first video was recorded back on Friday 4th September 2015. It tells you much of the background and a bit of history about our attempts in trying for a baby and then our plans for the future. At this point, egg donation was just an initial thought. I also discuss the fact that I am going to take my first round of clomid, how our losses have affected us and I get a bit emotional about how much I would like Ross to become a father.

With apologies for my exposed bra strap! 

Thank you for watching xx

    This is such a brave video and in some ways has just put a lot of things into perspective for me after a bad day. I can totally imagine the desperation you and Ross must be feeling. I had it with my first child: that longing. It is heartbreaking that it hasn’t happened yet. However, feel comforted in the fact you are trying hard to look after yourself, have some plans and you never know it may just fall into place without. Sending you lots of luck xx #thetruthabout

    My heart really goes out to you watching this Vic. I can only imagine how much heartache all of these trials have caused you and how many re-imaginings of what is and isn’t possible. I can completely understand your mixed feelings about the egg donor. You want to produce a child together which shares both your genes but at least with this way of doing it you get to enjoy pregnancy together and you have the bond of nurturing the baby for nine months and Ross becomes a biological dad. Plus you parent the baby together from the word go like any other couple and Grace is still a big sister – I wish you every luck with this and please forgive me if I am second guessing your thought process and caused any (unintended) offence. Lots of love Sam X #thetruthabout

      Thank you so much Sam. You have not second-guessed anything. Thankfully I have moved on from these thoughts and am so much more ‘together’ about it all now I understand it better. Thanks for your supportive comment xx

    Hi Victoria, you are such a brave Lady, bearing your soul, and I am sure there are many people who will be able to relate to your videos and hopefully get some comfort an strength from them. I honestly felt for you and I wish you all the luck in the world. And the bra strap just shows you’re human.

    Fingers crossed for the future and sending you big hugs.
