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.

5w6d Beta #5

1537.   104 hour doubling time.  Once betas are above 1200 normal double time is between 72 and 96 hours.  Damn I wish things could just be easier and definitive.  They wanted to do another ultrasound next Monday (6/23) but I will be on vacation until the FOLLOWING Monday (6/30).   My nurse is talking to the doctor and figuring it out and will call me back.

Beta recap:
14dp3dt=165 (52 hour doubling)
18dp3dt=560 (54 hour doubling)
21dp3dt=945 (95 hour doubling)
24dp3dt=1537 (102 hour doubling)

Beta graph.... the slope doesn't look promising.

Plan:  Ultrasound on Thursday (3 days from the last check) and another on Monday the 30th (as soon as we get back from our trip).


  1. I am so hopeful for you! I really think this baby could stick! It's definitely growing, and that is good news.

    1. Thanks girl. I just wish I knew either way!!!

  2. Keep hoping. I just said a prayer for you and your baby.

  3. Thinking about you today. Hope you are doing okay. I'm still praying.

    1. Thanks girl. I'm hanging on to my sanity by a thread. Just want the limbo to end one way or another so we can move on.

  4. Hoping for good news this morning.
