So, I had the "dreaded" 1 hour glucose intolerance test this morning. They had me chug a PURE SUGAR orange flavored drink and then they drew my blood 1 hour later. The drink didn't taste nearly as bad as everyone says. It just tasted like a flat orange pop. I will get my results in a few days. I pray I pass. I don't want my poor baby growing too big that I can't deliver him naturally! The only side effect from the test is that I am absolutely starving today. I have deduced that if you start your day off eating sugar you will be hungrier the entire day. Hunger leads to headaches for me. So therefor sugar causes headaches. So double therefor I am going to try and cut out sugar as much as I can.

- 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.
