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.

13w1d - Last PIO Shot!

I was supposed to stop PIO cold turkey at 10 weeks.  I was too scared.  I finally started weaning like 5 or 6 days ago and today I had my last butt shot!  Lol.  Now, only daily belly shots but those are easy.   Mike had to do the PIO shots and tomorrow is his birthday.  I told him it was a birthday present that he could stop stabbing me daily with a harpoon.  lol

Time is going so slowly!  Today is Wednesday.  Is it next Wednesday yet?  I REALLY want to see my babies again!!!


  1. I totally understand that fear of stopping! Don't forget to let go and let God! He's got them in his hands ❤️

  2. Wonderful news! Once stopping those damn shots you are just like any "run of the mill" pregnant woman! That is, run of the mill with twins!!

    1. Ha! Crazy, right? Well, I'm still on one daily shot - lovenox. So not quite the normal person yet. lol. How are you doing with your new baby boy????

    2. I was really happy to do my last shot. This next time around I will be on lovonox as well, so the shots won't stop until baby arrives and possibly a few weeks after that even. It's worth it. Happy Mother's Day!
