New Blog Friday- Sunny

IT'S BACK!! 

After a brief hiatus during IVF and pregnancy, I have decided to bring back New Blog Friday!

So if you have a blog you would like me to feature, click on the "New Blog Friday" tab at the top right to find out more. 


This week I am featuring Sunny from Sunny Side Up
Here is a message from Sunny:

Hi, my name is Sunny and I own and write at Sunny Side Up.
I originally began my blog in April, when my husband and I first found out I have Poly-Cystic Ovarian syndrome, and that baby making could get a little complicated.
As a nurse by trade, I had heard about all the common causes of infertility, including PCOS.  We have friends who have struggled on their own paths to have babies; some successful and some not.  So when we were told that we were infertile because I didn’t make eggs, our whole life changed.
We have been told by many (many) people how lucky we are that we found out early, because Hubby and I are still under 30.  We have been married for just over two years, and together for six.  We had always talked about starting our family early, and were hoping to be married a few years before we started ‘trying’.  However, in October last year, we were blessed with a surprise pregnancy which, unfortunately, was taken from us not long after. 
It is amazing how much love you can place in something so quickly.  How little time it takes to become so attached to the idea of something.  We had always wanted children, but after our loss, that feeling was multiplied and kept multiplying, until it was all we could think about!
Sunny Side Up is a space to talk candidly about marriage, infertility, sex, and life in general.  I wanted to create a place I could talk about it without making people uncomfortable.  And I have been genuinely surprised by the number of people who have come out and told me their own stories of infertility and baby dreams.  It seems the more I talk about it, the more couples join in.  What a sad, and yet somewhat comforting thought!
Now I feel like my blog has a purpose.  It has given me a goal, and though it may take time to achieve, it is high on my list of priorities.  I would love to be able to establish a not-for-profit ‘Sunny Side Up Foundation’ that would aide infertile couples with financial support, information on available fertility, adoption and foster care options, and counselling in Australia.  Because I know that without the support of those around us, our lives would be incredibly hard.
In the meantime, Sunny Side Up {creative} was recently debuted on the blog and Facebook page.  There you can find click-and-print inspirational posters; all free of charge, and designed by me!



So please stop by Sunny Side Up sometime.  We don’t yet know what God has in store for us, but you can be sure you’ll hear an honest, comical, sometimes emotional, and true account of our adventures.

Go check out Sunny and show her some love by commenting and/or following her blog

A great compendium of resources and information regarding the entire IVF process. This is really helpful to anyone wishing to enquire, or for a couple potentially nervous about embarking on the IVF journey. You cannot put a price on peace of mind, and this really puts any worries to rest.
Great work.
