Sniffing away

Ahh the old sniffer! I've started this morning with the Suprecur (same as Superfact) and I'm absolutely dreading the headaches that will come...Anyway, only 4 more pills!!! adn I hope to God that when AF will show up and finish it'll be the end of the spotting...honestly....it's soo so frustrating...I can't even imagine how people on the pill as birth control (rather than preparation for IVF!) with spotting can cope...

On other news, today is my blog-anniversary! I have seen this mentioned in other blogs and I was expecting like a big pop-up message when I opened the blog, but nope, not such a thing! I just checked when I posted my first post and realised it was a year ago today. Wow...

And today we had the first AGM of Ectopic Pregnancy Ireland. Amazing girls have worked so hard to put it together, there is a website in preparation, should be ready around June-July, the big launch of the association is being planned for September, leaflets are ready to be printed and we have a FB page! We plan to activate a phone-support line to which we'll answer in rotation and we'll have forum on our website too. Fund raising is obviously the big thing which we are not too sure how to tackle efficiently, but the first thing will be running the mini-marathon in Dublin on the 7th of June! the girls think we can get T-shirt ready with the logo and a few friends will go and wear them. Wow. This is happening. We will raise awareness. One of the girls was saying how ignorant people are on the subject...soon after she had her ectopic pregnancy, she was having a manicure and said to the girl that she recently had an ectopic pregnancy and the reaction was "Ohhh!! Congratulations!!" Can you believe it?? We definitely have to do something!

  3. Happy Blogversary! Makes you realize how quickly a year goes by, eh?

    You gals sound like you've got the ectopic support program well in hand! Wow. Knowledge is power - and you'll be doing a great service by spreading the information.

    Finally, I hope the Suprecur headaches keep themselves to a minimum!

  5. Happy Blog-o-versary, Fran!!!

    I hate BCPs too. They make me a weepy, psycho mess.

    I'm very happy for you and your friends spreading awareness and support for those who've had ectopic pregnancies. I remember when I had mine, I couldn't find much info on it or reasons for the EP happening. Its not the type of m/c people talk about so the EP loss is a bit forgotten.

  6. Happy Blogoversary! It's amazing how time flies, isn't it?

    Your charity/organization sounds so amazing and rewarding. Congratulations on getting everything going. The mini-marathon sounds like a great place to get the name out. It's such a truly worthwhile cause.

  8. Happy Blogaversary!

    My mom nearly died in the 70's with a ruptured tube from an ectopic. If she'd known that she was more than miscarrying then, she might have sought help sooner. I'm thrilled that you'll be working to get the word out.

  11. I hear you on the spotting. I switched BCPs for the last week and have been spotting for 9 days. ARGH! Today is finally spot-free.

    Happy blogiversary!

  12. Happy Blogoversary (but I'm going to resist saying "And many more"...or, rather, I'm going to say I hope this blog becomes a very different kettle of fish in Year 2).

    I hope that spotting ends soon. Only 4 more pills, though! Things are moving right along!

  16. First off Fran Happy happy blogoversary. You don't know how happy I am that you are here really girl. How exciting about your non-profit and how sad that the manicurist said that. But it goes to show how much an organization and education is needed on this topic. Good for you girls! xoxoxo
