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.

22w0d - Weekly update!!

Holy braxton hicks.   Sitting at work today and my whole uterus feels tight.   I cannot wait to get home and lay on the couch!  lol

Babies this week:
  • During month five, the average fetus measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.
  • Now that baby's got more developed eyes and lips, he or she's looking even more like a newborn.
  • Baby's sleeping in cycles-about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they're probably those times you're not feeling any kicks!).

Times two:  

The finish line is in site....


  1. Hey, I just found your blog when I was researching autoimmune solutions regarding transfer. Congrats on your sweet, expanding family. I live near Pittsburgh and my best friend and I go up to Erie a lot! Would you please message me at 3 SmittensBOGO Kittens @ Gmail. Com (no spaces) to answer a few questions if you don't mind? Thanks x2 ����
