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.

35w2d - Weekly update!!

Still pregnant!   These babies just love baking in there!   C-section still on for 10/19 - 13 days!!!!!

Updates since last week:
  • Got steroid shot #1 this past Tuesday
  • Had really bad cramping that night
  • Went to get steroid shot #2 yesterday (Wednesday) and ended up spending 5 hours or so in Labor & Delivery hooked up to an NST and getting IV fluids.  Apparently they didn't like that I was cramping the night before so they did it as a precaution.  I had lots of contractions but they were all irregular and the nurses/doctor chalked it up to irritable uterus at this point.  Pre-pre-pre-labor.  lol.  Glad they didn't come yesterday though as it was Victor's birthday.  That would have been rough sharing your birthday every year with your twin brother and sister!!

Babies this week:
  • Now, hearing is fully developed, and baby responds best to high-pitched noises.
  • If you're having a boy, his testes have probably fully descended.
  • Baby's about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, he or she won't get much longer, but will continue plumping up. 
  • Baby's now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and will put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. Growing, growing, growing. Yup, baby and you. 
  • You’ve reached 35 weeks, and your uterus has grown about 1,000 times its original size, a number that might sound exaggerated to everyone else—but to you it probably feels more like a million.

Times TWO!!


  1. How amazing that you've carried them this long! They will come out so strong and healthy! So excited for you :)

    1. Thank you! I can't believe they've stayed put for so long too! Though my son didn't want to even come out at 41 weeks. Apparently babies like my ute. lol
