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.

Trying to be better

I'm really trying to be a better human being these days.   Trying not to feel bitter toward pregnant women.  This says it all....

  1. I know this feeling... Although I know my situation is different because I have naturally conceived & birthed. I hear of women I know getting pregnant & feeling devastated & considering abortion & what I wouldn't GIVE to be able to give my husband a baby! Just ONE! It is an active, daily ritual... To not fight bittnerness, to recognize its source & realize it's not from God - it's the adversary, & to remind myself to give him no space to work in my spirit. I hope your day is improving!

    1. I'm sorry - I meant to say, "to fight bitterness".

    2. It's taken me 8 years on this path to even start to try and change my mindset. I'm not perfect, and will have setbacks, but I must be LOVE at my core.

  2. I have been feeling those exact feelings these days. It's hard. One of my friends just shared with me that she has been on birth control the last six months and just found out she is three months pregnant. Here she is trying to prevent it and she is just that fertile! It sucks. I've been feeling a bit depressed about it. I had such a great mindset in the beginning of trying for number three, but now? My heart is broken.

    1. I'm sorry you're feeling so down. I definitely know what that's like. Hug your little men tight. That helps me (hugging my little prince!)!

    Hi Lauree, I am not sure if you are still checking in but I was reading your journey and similar to myself. I have had 4 miscarriages, 3 FET, 2 IUI's and I think the RE believes it is due to thin lining but I don't believe that for a second. I have been tested for immune issues but it came back clear. Do you mind sending me the protocol you did for your beautiful twins? My last attempt I took Medrol and stopped after 5 days. I think I continued, I might have been okay.
