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.

12dp5dt - Symptoms


Middle of the night: GIANT headache I actually took 1 tylenol and put a washcloth over my forehead to fall back to sleep.  Uterine tugging when getting out of bed.  A little nauseated (could have been the headache).  Vivid dreams (tho still not sex or baby related like they were when I was pregnant with Victor).

Morning:  Nothing yet.   Right pulling feelings.  Tiny cramps while driving.

Beta #2 blood drawn at 8:50am.

Mid morning:  Right side feelings.

Afternoon:  Thirst.

Evening:  Nothing.

    1. 8:50am. It was at 9am on Friday and I didn't hear the results until 5pm! Oh what torture!
