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.

9w0d

9 weeks today!   Hopefully everything is going well with the twins in there!   I had a tiny bit of nausea in the middle of the night over the weekend but nothing really since.   Debating if I should call the OB for a sono this week or try and hold out until next week.  I definitely will request one next week - to see our babies past the hurdle of fear (9w4d).   Officially, I don't have one until 12 weeks and 1 day.   Definitely can't wait until then!   If I don't go this week, debating on using the doppler to at least hear one twin's heartbeat (definitely won't be attempting to decipher both twins' heartbeats if I do cave and use the doppler).    Anyways, nothing crazy to report.  Just doing my weekly check-in.  :)  Oh, lab results below from my visit to the hematologist.  Everything seems good.  A few numbers that are low or high here and there.  I'll have to google the crap out of it all when I get a second.

Babies are the size of olives this week!

    I had my second ultrasound today and saw two heartbeats. This is getting real! Baby A measures 7w1d and baby B measures 6w6d. So not too far behind you!
