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.

9dp5dt - Beta #1

Beta #1 was 117!!   I am thrilled with that!  Just slightly below average according to betabase.info for a singleton at 14dpo (129).  Though I did read FETs have lower betas and I also read 5 day transfers have lower betas.

I also used a hcg graphing tool on babymed.com to place beta #1:
