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.

We've decided on 2!

We, along with help from the RE, have decided to transfer both embryos.  The boy and the girl!  She said "given my history" and the fact that "they were frozen twice" that's what she recommends.  Since that is what I was leaning towards, that's what we'll be doing!

I would love nothing more than both of them to stick (my hubby might be rolling his eyes right now reading that) but in all honesty, I really don't think they both will.  Again, we've transferred 13 embryos to date, over 7 transfers, and have one (albeit AMAZING) little boy.   My uterus laughs at twins!  lol.  I would be more than thrilled with one baby from this transfer too.  A big ol' BFN would make me sad.  A third miscarriage, however, would be absolutely devastating.  It CAN happen with normal embryos.  The little girl we lost in August was a normal girl.  :(  But enough about the sadness.  This will work!  I just know it!  

But if it doesn't work this time, I have to remember.......


  1. Awesome news!!! Praying for your 2 embryos!

  2. Great attitude, prayers for a healthy baby... Or two!
