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.

6dp5dt - Symptoms


Early morning: cramps when I woke up, cramps sometimes when I move, super bloated, constipated, a few twinges here and there

Mid morning: A few tiny pinches ~9am.  Nothing really after, maybe a little bloated?  Went for a walk with a friend, crampy and bloated during the walk.

Noon/afternoon:  nothing really, a little bloat.  Starting to freak that I feel mostly normal!

Drive home from work:  pinching - finally something!   Thirst?

After work - Tiiiiiiiiny bit of brown spotting.

Evening - Cramps during dinner, I think I'm starting to get veiny boobs (weren't veiny at all on a second look)?   Definitely thirsty.


  1. Lauree, I would not be worried about not feeling different yet. I'm sure when you hit 4-5 weeks you will have lots of flutters, fatigue, nausea and other symptoms. Are you going to do a home pregnancy test tomorrow?

    1. I love the way you think! I will most likely test tomorrow after a work thing I have to attend. At least it will keep my mind busy all day!
