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.

17dp6dt - Symptoms & HPTs

Good morning!  Only 1 more wake-up until my final beta!   I just want that beta over and done with (and get a good number - hoping for 5,550+).    I think I'll stop testing after tomorrow's beta as long as it's a decent number.


Middle of the night - Peed twice but that's only because I kept waking up and was like "mighgt as well pee" - not that I actually had to pee.  lol

Morning - Tongue scraper blood.  Bleeder after the PIO injection.

Mid-day - Nothing.

Afternoon - Cramps after lunch.

Evening - Tiny bit tired.   Ute pulls here and there.  Freezing.  Tongue scraper blood.

Love this one.  This sure has been a looooooong road.  Our TTC journey started EIGHT years ago.  2008.  I really hope we can get to our "destination" this year and finally have the family we always dreamed of!


Loving this view... Clearblue Digital weeks estimator at 3+, dark FRER, and dark wondfos!!!   Beautiful site!!   Praise God!!

A tiny peak into my madness - the madness of an 8 year infertility war veteran:
Wondfo progression, new FRER progression, clearblue digital progression, FRRR progression, Top Care hpt progression


  1. I really love all of your quotes! They all have real truth in them. My journey started 2010, this past year was my 5th wedding anniversary. We didn't really celebrate cause i said thats not how i've imagined myself at this time, so I hope that this year we will be able to have proper celebration:) all the Best for u and your family of 4,mayby 5?:)

    1. Awe Em, thank you so much for such kind words. I pray 2016 brings you your miracle!!!!!! <3

  2. I know this is old, but I was googling and came across your blog. I'm waiting to get my betas drawn on Monday so I have no idea what if my levels have doubled, but my first response and wondfos that I took today look identical to yours in the top pic! Do you know what your levels were around that time?

    1. The very next day they were 4864.

    2. Thank you for responding!! That's a great number!! I need them to be around 1230 today for proper doubling so that has helped me feel confident that I'm on track!
