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.

Positive OPK

Soooooo I've been taking ovulation tests daily.   My main goal of taking them was to be able to time when my next period will show up to be able to get the FET underway.   My subgoal was a piece of me always holds out a shred of hope for getting that absolute miracle BFP the cycle before a transfer.  It has happened.  I have seen it first hand with a very lucky lady on my fertility forum.   She was gearing up to do a FET, went to Europe or something, and found out she was pregnant!   Miracles do happen!

Anyways....... I popped the test positive on Monday (3/17) when I took one after work.   Sooooooo, that means AF most likely won't show up until March 31st (14 days later).  Which means my transfer will most likely be 15 to 20 days after that....so April 15th through 20th.  I'm hoping for Friday the 18th, so I only have to take 1 day off of work and then have the whole weekend to relax.   Of course, ironically, I have a newborn session scheduled for the 19th...ugh.   Of course the transfer won't even happen if the synthroid medication doesn't bring my TSH levels to normal range.

Positive OPK (ovulation predictor kit)......yes, I took a pic.  Going through infertility seeing anything with two lines on it is very exciting stuff!!
