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.

Good morning!  The spotting has slowed.  It's still kinda there but hoping it goes away completely today.  :)  Today is a good day.  6 weeks today!  Just need to make it 4 more weeks to get past where I was last fall.   I feel good about this baby.  I hope my intuition is right!   Tomorrow is our first ultrasound.  I am really excited!  Mike and I are of course both going and we are bringing an entourage!  Ha!  Hopefully the sonographer let's us all in!  It will be Mike, me, my mom, his mom, and Victor!   They let us all in for Victor's first ultrasound in 2012!

I had a beautiful sign sent to me by the universe this morning.  This may gross some people out, but to me it is beautiful.  Take a look..... this is what was on the paper towel after my progesterone shot this morning!  I am in awe of it's beauty.  Thank you God for sending me a sign everything is going to be okay!

Coincidentally, this was the inspiration I had planned for today.  
Love everything about all of this!
