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.

11dp6dt - Symptoms & HPTs

I just had my second beta drawn (twice actually).    I probably won't hear until late this afternoon the results from the one lab, and I won't hear until at least tomorrow morning the results from the other lab (this is the lab I used for beta 1 - I duplicated draws today so I can get an accurate doubling since betas differ from lab to lab).  

So nervous today.   No symptoms today.   Wish I was nauseous or something!


Middle of the night - peed once - no cramps after.

Morning - Tongue scraper blood.   Yellow cm.

Mid-day - Nothing much.  Tiny tan spot.

Afternoon - Slightly thirsty.   Super duper bloated around 4.

Evening - Tired after dinner.  Veiny.  Tongue scraper blood.


Ignore the one peeking at the very top (yesterday's dried test), but the top one is another curved FRER and the bottom one is a FRRR (first response rapid result).  Just wanted to see if I could match the control line on SOMETHING given my beta today of 365!  

Curved FRERs - 9dpt, 10dpt, and 11dpt all "wet" under 60 minutes


  1. Stay positive! Be happy! Trust your body! Rest and enjoy some relaxation :) & live in the moment, for we are not promised tomorrow!
