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.

6w2d Ultrasound #2

The gestational sac appeared empty today.  Looks like my body reabsorbed the yolk sac and miscarriage is imminent.   My HPTs have been getting lighter so I can only pray that we can wrap up this whole awful experience with the news of a lower beta today.  Miscarrying while on vacation will utterly suck.  Everyone is going to be so happy around me.  It will make me feel even more alone.


  1. Holding you in my heart today. I'm so, so sorry. xoxo

  2. I am so sorry :( I know right now you feel like the last thing you want to do is go on vacation because you hurt so much. Getting away from your surroundings will help trust me. You and your husband can comfort each other but you will be able to spend time together and that is important. ((Gentle hugs}} Through my 4 miscarriages I have stayed home and hidden from the world and it only made me feel depressed. Right now I am in the same situation as you. I had a 5 day transfer on May 27th and first beta was 1137 but then they have been rising slower and slower. I have my first sonogram tomorrow but the nurse thinks either the baby stopped growing or it is an ectopic pregnancy. :(

  3. I am so, so sorry. This is awful and unfair.

  4. Lauree,
    I am so very sorry for this bad news for you. I hope you are able to find comfort in having your husband and son close by during your time away. Prayers and hugs for you and your husband.
