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.

30w6d - Weekly update, sono pics, bump pic!

Better late than never!  Tomorrow I'll be 31 weeks but it's never too late to write a 30 week update, right?  LOL

Babies this week:
  • Baby's skin is getting smoother.
  • But baby's brain is getting wrinklier-to make way for all that essential brain tissue.
  • Baby's now strong enough to grasp a finger!
  • Your 15.2- to 16.7-inch, 2.5- to 3.8-pound baby continues to grow.
