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.

11w1d - Heart rate

Just as it should, our baby's heart rate is starting to slow down.  It peaked in the last two weeks around 180ish bpm (beats per minute).  It's about 170 bpm today (using the fetal doppler to measure).  Sometime around 15 weeks our baby's heart rate will reach around 150 bpm and then plateau.

Here is a diagram of female and male heart rates recorded throughout women's pregnancies:
