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.

Drinks, Glaze, and Sex...and Coffee

So, I know alcohol isn't good for egg quality.  But last night was ladies night and it was BYOB at Claytopia.  So, I brought one bottle of Angry Orchard and got my paint on with my girls.  I painted a unicorn and drank my drink and was even a little buzzed by the end.  I had to leave early to have the sex since I'll be ovulating in a few days.  The girls all laughed and I agreed to name my baby Clay if some how miraculously this month I conceive.  lol.   Always praying for a miracle.

Addendum.... I even got a pumpkin spice latte this morning - caffeine is the devil for eggs.  I just craved the caffeine rush today.   I'll be kicking myself later when only 50% of my eggs fertilize.  Must.  Stop.  Bad.  Behavior!
