About Us

After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.

Turned 30 two days after negative beta

(My blog started on 1/25/2012, but I have gone back and added our entire journey up until that point.)

Turning 30 two days after my negative beta was a really rough experience for me.  Had a little melt down with hubby in the middle of the driveway, but luckily my dog Digbee consoled me:


  1. Our dog is also the best comfort going through this :)

  2. I feel ya... I turned 30 that year too.
    My 31st is in a few days and still not pregnant. Seeing your driveway melt-down helps... since every once in a while I need to have a few of those myself. I feel so silly when I have them (like I'm being a wimp), but I have to remind myself that it's ok to not always be calm, tough & pulled together.

    1. Oh Mara. Your story breaks my heart. And it IS okay to have breakdowns. I think they're healthy actually. I wish you the best of luck with your baby endeavors.
