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.

6w6d Miscarriage

The imminent miscarriage started this morning.   Feels like a normal period (so far) but extra sad knowing there was a baby in there at some point.  :(

I'm on vacation (I went anyways even against doctor's orders) so hopefully I can take my mind off of it.   It's a gloomy day (fitting) here on Hilton Head Island.   We are here until Saturday and are driving back Saturday and Sunday.   I have an appointment with my OB for an ultrasound and blood work Monday.  Hopefully my body knows what to do this week to wrap this emotional episode up. 

Anyways.... We meet with a new RE on July 3rd.  She's a new RE but my old clinic - the one that gave us Victor.   She's super young and I pray she isn't stuck in her old ways like my past two REs.  I hope she takes my Hashimotos, MTHFR, and all that craziness into consideration instead of blowing it off like my last RE.  

So stay tuned.  


  1. Sending a big hug your way! Hope it goes quickly and the beach/sun provide a good distraction. Wonderful to hear you already have a next step planned. Take care! (Houston13)

  2. I've been thinking about you. I'm so very sorry Lauree. :( Let me know if/when you feel up for some input on the MTHFR. I have done quite a bit of research and can try to help out.

  3. I'm glad it is feeling like a normal period. My miscarriage was so painful, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone, particularly over a vacation. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, though :(

  4. So sorry this was the outcome. I was really hoping it would turn around form you.

  5. I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope you have been able to enjoy your vacation, despite the terrible news.
