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.

Immune Testing Requisition

So before we continue with any treatment, I really want Mike and I to have more testing completed.   Especially me.  I am going to have a slew of immune testing done to make sure my body isn't killing embryos within it.  I will have the following done through a simple blood draw (hopefully covered by insurance):

AntiBeta 2 glycoprotein antibodies
Anticardiolipin antibodies
Lupus anticoagulant
Hemoglobin AIC
Microsomal antibodies

Mike will have the following measured through a blood draw as well:

Chromosome analysis
