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.

Today..... Met with nurse to go over next month's cycle, blood tests, injection training (like I needed it)...check.

Next week..... They'll order my meds.   (Update.... they didn't order my meds, hopefully next week.)

October 12-18..... Start period.  We'll just choose October 17th for the next tentative dates....

October 20th..... baseline ultrasound, start Follistim and Menopur.

October 23rd..... ultrasound and bloodwork to measure progress.

October 25th-30th..... ultrasound and bloodwork to measure progress.   Once follicles reach 13/14mm start Ganirelix to suppress ovulation.

October 30th..... Trigger with either Lupron + HCG or just Lupron (depends on E2 levels at the time).

November 1..... Retrieval

November 4th or 6th..... Day 3 or Day 5 transfer.

November 18th or 20th..... Official beta day.
