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.

Lupron Injections Start

So I started my lupron injections last night.  I am on 10 units everyday until my baseline in 10 days on the 24th.  If the baseline goes well I will start my Follistim (100 units) and drop my Lupron down to 5 units.   As you can see, the shot was uneventful.  Mike took pics during it and Victor helped by trying to pull down Mommy's pants.  We actually want him to watch the injections to get him less afraid of shots.  Knock on wood it helps a little and doesn't traumatize him!


  1. Hi Lauree. I just found your blog through FertileThoughts. Good luck on your upcoming IVF! My husband and I will be starting our first IVF next week, waiting for my period to start bcp. Looks like we'll be on the same protocol, just 1 month apart.
    Look forward to reading about your journey and eventual BFP! :)

    1. Azul so good to hear from you!!! Sorry I didn't see your comment til now. I wish you the best of luck!! Are you on any cycle buddy boards on fertile thoughts that I can follow you??
