- 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.

Monitoring Appointment #1
Three days of stims (100 follistim, 75 menopur) under my belt as of yesterday. Monitoing appointment today went okay. I have a lot of follicles (they still haven't given me a count) but I'm a little worried. Some are way bigger than others. I think I saw a 13mm one and most were like 5mm. I hope that's okay. I know in IVF they should all be the same size so they grow at the same rate and can get harvested at the same time. Don't have a good feeling about this cycle. It will either be cancelled or changed to a stimulated IUI I bet. :( I'm so upset.
