- 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.

Bomb From Yesterday
So yesterday my thyroid doctor confirmed that I have an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto's. I have no clue what this means or what it means for my fertility and my baby making journey. A lot of people have kindly sent me information. It's a lot to take in. The thyroid doctor said he thinks it's fine to move ahead with the transfer. My RE doctor said he thinks it's controversial what Hashimoto's dose to fertility and it's up to me if I want to proceed or not. He gives me this answer for everything. I am leaving him for sure if these last two embryos don't make it. He's so inferiating.
