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.

14dp5dt - Beta #1

Well folks!   The beta came back positive!!!!!!!!!!!!


So I home tested just so I could see and the test line is even darker than the control line!

Symptoms:  thirsty, crampy when moving, tweaks in my bbs on and off, veiny BBs.


  1. Lauree,
    I've been going through your blog from the beginning of the story (I didn't know of your blog 'til today and there are so many parts to the story that I haven't known about), and I have to tell you, I've been teary-eyed up 'til this point, but this one I burst into tears! YES YES YES!

    I've had faint positives before- I actually have never seen a pregnancy test come back so positive like this one! What a beautiful pink line! Ha ha ha. SO EXCITED.

  2. Thank you. Yes, it's been quite the emotional roller coaster for Mike and I these last 3.5+ years.
