3 months ago, in our little secret Facebook group, after posting a succession of sexcapades, some ladies suggested I start a blog.
I was told that my British self-deprecating sense of humour, honesty and candour made my tales relatable for other women.
I decided to give it a bash, starting with just a handful of followers and mostly kept it private. It turns out I was rather good at it and quite enjoyed the distraction.
Fast forward 3 months and I have hit over 10,000 views. I am totally astonished by that, and incredibly grateful for the continuous support I receive. I really feel that people are championing us to get preggo!
So now I literally have friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbours, acquaintances and strangers reading my blog. I don’t even feel embarrassed about it.
Having sex and trying to make a baby is a natural thing. It is not shameful, or embarrassing, or something to be kept hidden. More people should be honest about how difficult this process can be. I wish I knew a year ago! So if one person following this blog is a little bit more educated and aware of the highs and lows, then this blog is doing what I wanted it to do.
And I’ll continue letting you guys into our bedroom until we get our BFP.
In a metaphorical sense, of course.
Anything else would just be weird…
