- 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.

Patches Instead of Pills
AF arrived today so the FET cycle officially got underway as of today. I spoke with my RE and basically told him I wanted to be on patch form of estrogen instead of pill form as pill form has contradications with synthroid and I am not about to jeopardize my beautifully low TSH (sorry for the run on!). :) So yeah, slapped on THREE patches this morning and told to do 2 pills in the you know what a day to help the lining. I think I'll wait to do those until after AF is done. Honestly, the FET I had success I only needed to put them you know where for like 2 days.....not 12 as they want me to do this time. So I think it will be okay to wait a couple days to start that mess. ;)
