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.

7dp3dt - More Squinters

POASed SIX times and it's only 1:25 in the afternoon....

11:00AM Collected super dark pee so I figured why not dip things in it?   And yes I collected my pee just in case....
11:00AM Expired internet dip stick I had laying around in the cupboard....squinter but BFP?
11:00AM Wondfo inernet cheapie....squinter but BFP?
11:05AM Dumped the super dark pee
11:06AM Whhhhhhyyyyy didn't I use a FRER on this super dark pee?!??!
11:45AM Have a pee again so I decide to collect it
11:45AM FRER super duper squinter after 5 minutes....BFP?   Such a squinter that an hour later the test reads BFN
11:45AM Wondfo internet cheapie....BFN

Anyways.....if you know me in real life, let's not talk about this.  I don't want to jinx it.  And please no cryptic Facebook posts on my wall just yet!   We'll see what the FRER shows in the next two days as 9 more arrived courtesy of Amazon after my POAS marathon.

Symptoms:  Finally had some cramps this morning...they felt like they were in my ovary.  Then I had more dull cramps all over my uterus.  Yellow CM (mom, call me and I'll tell you this acronym.... I don't want to gross out the internet readers).  Acne on chest.

Pic of the "11:00AM Expired internet dip stick SQUINTER"....PA-LEASE don't let this still be the trigger from 12 days ago!!!!

Update....for my records.....the BFPs were 99% chance still the trigger.....12 DAYS LATER.  Cruel and unusual.


  1. Ladyfriend, you know I just HAD to Google yellow CM. Thank God it wasn't set to search images. :)
