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.

5dp6dt - Symptoms & Squinters!

Good morning!  Didn't test - yet!   My first morning urine ALWAYS makes the lightest line (even lighter than a night before) so I'm waiting until at least this afternoon.  Maybe evening.  Maybe tomorrow.  Gosh I don't know!  

It's still technically 4dp6dt as I type - since it won't be 5dp6dt until 2:30 this afternoon.  Just saying.  It's still really early to see a positive.  I also read that the new curvy FRERs are giving girls false positives!  I REALLY don't want a false positive getting my hopes up!


Middle of the night - slight cramps after peeing.

Morning - Maaaaybe more vivid dreams?  No sex dreams tho - damn.  I woke up at 5:40am with a headache and ABSOLUTELY starving.  I could only hold out until 6:20 and then I got dressed (sweatpants and a sweatshirt of course - nothing fancy) and went downstairs to make my breakfast prenatal drink.  

Mid-day - Another tiny tan spot (that I noticed and took as a good sign so I collected my pee in a dixie cup - see below), headache still lingering, lower right ute tweaking on and off

Afternoon - Nothing really.  Napped with Victor, but I always do that on the weekend.  lol.  Yellow cm.

Evening - Yellow cm, ute tweaks.

CAVED AND TESTED .... 10 AM (so 4.5 hours shy of 5dpt).....  Squinter on the wondfo (between the ring and the dark pink line) (I don't trust them tho - they've hurt me in the past) and a super duper crazy squinter on the FRER (which, as of last night's reading, the new curvy FRER's give false positives)...so I'm excited but too scared to believe this is the real deal!

8:45 PM's tests:
5dp6dt new curvy frer - 20 minutes after the test

Comparing the two:

Same test from above the morning after (once it was drier/darker):
