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.

31w0d - Weekly update!!

Last week of no OB appointments!!!   Crazy.   Next week starts weekly non stress tests, every other week OB appointments, and every three week growth sonograms (so only 2 more of those theoretically at 33 and 36 weeks!).  

In other news, my family surprised me with a baby shower this past weekend!  I was so surprised.   I teared up walking through the door.

Babies this week:
  • Baby's going through major brain and nerve development.
  • Eye development too. Baby's irises now react to light!
  • All five of baby's senses are in working order.
  • Baby's about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds this month.
