About Us

My photo
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.

7w2d - Ultrasound!!

We have ONE healthy little baby growing in there!!   He (or she) is measuring right on track.  Her (or his) heartrate is 160 beats per minute.   Isn't he/she sooooo cute?

Mike and I were just speechless we were so happy.  Both of our moms were in the room too - mine rubbing my head and crying with joy.  We are just so thrilled!!!!!!!!  The nurse said I can stop my meds on March 4th.  No more stabbing myself with 2 inch needles!  :)   They gave us a little wheel to show where our progression lines up with all the dates.  I also photoshopped in a few keys items in green.

Symptoms:  Dizzy the whole car ride to Cleveland


  1. Congratulations !! I too am on a very similar journey as you, just a week behind you :) wish you all the luck, they say higher HR indicate a boy so I my vote goes for a cute baby boy :)

    1. Good luck to you!!! This has been a crazy ride. Congratulations to us both for coming this far! :)
