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.

32w1d - Trip to L&D

I called the OB's office about my itching and my fear of cholestasis.   They hooked me up for another NST and ran blood tests.  Initial findings didn't show anything wrong but they had a few tests that take a few days to get the results.   Hopefully everything is good.  I honestly haven't been itchy since then (writing this post as of 32w6d).   Fingers crossed!!!

Hooked up doing another NST...

You can kinda see it on my shin and just above my knee...


  1. So scary! You have had this for a while right? Praying for you!
    My mom is a L&D nurse! I'm going to ask her!

    1. I had hives all over for about 6 weeks earlier this summer. These aren't give. They are more like welts once I start scratching. The welts only last about 15-20 minutes. Knock on wood I only get about one welt itch thingy a day the last few days.
