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.

10w2d - Baby's heart beat!

So our fetal doppler came in.  Sonotrax (Basic A model) was a success!  We found baby Schloss right away!!   About 180 beats per minute!

Symptoms:  tired after lunch (ate a humongous lunch so I'm not suprised).  Still not that many symptoms!


  1. awesome - thanks for sharing!!!!!! Gregg & Sallee

  2. Awesome! Asako and I felt our fetal doppler was one of the best things we got during her pregnancy. Due to a medical condition Asako has, there was potential for a heart defect to form in the baby. So being able to listen to monitor Sophia's heartbeat whenever we wanted was a biiiig relief.

  3. the best sound in the world when pregnant!
