Sorry my posts are pretty boring lately. Things move so slowly in between cycles. Anyways, I scheduled my endometrial scratching for 9 AM on Friday (day after tomorrow). I have heard mixed reviews on how painful the procedure is. I am doing the procedure because it "is thought to increase the immune system cells and therefore the growth factors at the site of the endometrial scratch. This is believed to make the womb lining more receptive to embryo implantation. Studies have suggested that implantation rates may be twice as high in patients who have an endometrial scratch before attempting to get pregnant." Wish me luck!

- 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.
