About Us

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.

5w4d - Speculated betas & Symptoms

Less than 24 hours until our first sonogram!  I am so flipping nervous!

Goal betas for tomorrow (in yellow).....Hoping for any of the top 3 for my sanity's sake....

Tho there is this..... I suppose I should take any of them really..... I just want it to be strong so I can rest and just be happy!   Infertility steals the chance of happiness away from early pregnancies because us interfiles are so deathly terrified of losing the baby (again).
Though when I put 3850 into the HCG doubling chart (on the same damn page as that Normal HCG Doubling Times thing above) it says that the 2 day increase is 72 hours and says "lower than normal".  If it's supposed to double in 72-96 hours past 1200 then why is 3850 (72 hour doubling) considered "lower than normal"?  Let's hope, nay, let's PRAY my beta is so strong tomorrow this is a moot point and we don't have to debate this stuff!!

Middle of the night: vivid dreams (not sex or baby related)
Morning: Veiny.  TSB.  Drive to work had some dull cramps on the right of my ute.   My bloated stomach is mostly flat again.  :(
Mid morning:  Swear my yogurt tastes weird.  Finally some bloat - just a tiny bit but I'll take it!  Come on symptoms!
Lunch: Walked and had some pulling on the right mostly, a bit on the left.
Afternoon:  Nothing.  Then small cramps.
After work:  Uterine pulling when moving!  Yes!
Evening: Uterine pulling when moving!  TSB
