LivelineI got a chance to answer Mary Kenny today on Joe Duffy's show on RTE Radio 1. I was only brought in at the end for a couple of minutes but I have to say that the two women on before me had absolutely nailed her at that stage, with a helping hand from the presenter (Damien O'Reilly was standing in for Joe Duffy). I was only getting warmed up when the segment ended but I think she had got the message by then.
I wanted to put something straight - for those of you who had expected to meet me recently wearing a wig or a sporting a shaved head, I only said that I was going bald, not that I was actually bald! The hair loss has thankfully diminished to what I think is a normal amount and hopefully the regrowth will follow. I don't know if it's because I've come off all my fertility meds, have stopped TTC or have started taking Chinese herbs - possibly it's a combination of all three. So now, instead of thick, long, curly, unruly locks, I have a manageable bob. I will make the most of it.
On the subject of stopping TTC, I am enjoying the break. I still know what cycle day I am on, still observe my CM at every possible opportunity, know exactly when I ovulated, am counting the days to AF. But I am free of the stress, pressure and expectation of the 2ww and I am thankful for that. Still a bitter aul cow when it comes to other people's babies and pregnancies but slightly more at peace with my own.
