- 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.

Alive, Trying and Waiting
Just checking in. I'm still alive. Still taking a plethora of supplements for 90 days pre-IVF to boost egg quality. After finding out both my tubes were miraculously open, we eagerly "tried" this month naturally (as we do every month but this one we were more positive) to make a sibling for Victor. Anyways, it was a bust. I got my LH surge on cycle day 17 and had my period on cycle day 27. Doesn't that seem like an awfully short luteal phase? Guess it doesn't matter with medicated IVF but it is very disheartening knowing that even with two tubes open, I probably don't have enough progesterone support internally to support life. :(
