We had many struggles spread over 4 years to have our son Victor in 2012. We are now continuing our infertility journey to give him a sibling. 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.

Today I started a blog.  I decided to start one today after realizing I have only been able to make it through this TWW (two week wait) 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.

Anyways, I can't believe I've made it this far without POASing (peeing on a stick)!  My beta is tomorrow and I'm still holding onto lots of hope that it will be positive.   Mike and I are taking off tomorrow afternoon so we can be at home when we get "the call."   Of course I'll make him answer it too and I'll try to be as far from the phone as I can so I can't overhear what they say.  Mike will deliver the news to me way better than a stranger ever could!

Symptoms:  spotting in the morning, slight cramping here and there, more cramps toward the evening, bloated, lower back pain (praying AF - aunt flow - isn't on its way), thirsty, freezing feet and nose at night.

And I've been saying my prayers:
