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.

7dp6dt - Symptoms & HPTs

Called the Cleveland Clinic to tell them about the spotting and that Mike and I made the executive decision to up my progesterone from 1 cc to 2 cc (50mg to 100mg) a day.  I also told the nurse about the positive home tests and she let me move the official test day from 14dpt (Monday) to 11dpt (this Friday)!


Middle of the night - nothing.  never even got up to pee.  no dreams.  nothing.  :(

Morning - Light brown spotting.  Cramp here or there.  Tongue scraper blood (I use a tongue scraper and a consistent "symptom" is when I scrape when pregnant a little bit of blood is drawn).  Thirsty.

Mid-day - Light brown spotting.  

Afternoon - Light brown spotting.

Evening - Light brown spotting.  Ute pinches here and there.  Cramps after eating.   Tongue scraper blood (I use a tongue scraper and a consistent "symptom" is when I scrape when pregnant a little bit of blood is drawn).

Tested this morning (6.5dpt on the FRER because it won't be 7dp until 2:30pm today and the test was taking around 6am - photographed around 7:30am):

This morning's test (at 90 minutes) compared to last-night's test (at 30 mins) and two-nights-ago's test (at 90 minutes) - aka all still a little wet:

This this this:

Took a few tests this evening (8:45pm).  I have to say, at first I thought it was over.  The new curved FRERS take so long to darken!  I even called out to Mike it was over.  Anyways, I think we are okay - at least today. 

Took a while to show up, but there's a line still:

Wondfos to date:

Took another digital:

Tests showing 5dpt, 6dpt, and 7dpt in the evening all within 90 minutes of taking them (aka all still a little wet):

Last several all dried:
