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.

7w3d - Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Mike and I slept very soundly (with trips to pee of course still) last night knowing our little pumpkin is strong and safe.  :)

Symptoms:  woke up orgasming again in my sleep, thirst, slight nausea / dizzyness in the morning, SOOOOO tired after lunch today, ate steak that was pink inside for dinner and freaking out, weird poking cramps on the right side of my uterus.


  1. Hey Lauree, its Provence13 from the jan fet group.
    I havent googled it yet, but I think there is a big misunderstanding around orgasming while sleeping. Actually, when I dream something nasty, I never really orgasm i just have the feeling which goes to the orgasm so I almost, but then I wake up, and when i wake up i dont feel anything down there, altough I should, so my opinion is that its not a phisical orgam, only our brain is playing with us. Or maybe its only in my case. Think about it and next time observe yourself when you already awake. :-) Im happy for you. I already have appontments for genetic testing and endocrinologist and also i go to a dieteticien, cause altough i have to do the insuline resistance diet and cut carbohydrates, i started to loose weight and im only 90 pounds, so i need an eating plan. :-)

    1. You know what? Now that you mention it, as I "felt" the orgasm wake me up, I did realize that nothing was throbbing "down there". I thought maybe it happened before I woke up. So maybe it IS truly just all in the mind. Wish I could harness that power!
