About Us

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.

36w0d - Weekly update!!

36 weeks!!!   8 days or less until we meet our babies!!   Saw our babies today for the first time in 3 weeks!!   Baby girl's estimated weight was 6lb4oz and baby boy's estimated weight was 5lb12oz.   He's always been smaller.  Some of his percentile measurements were like 10th percentile, while a lot of her's were like 55th percentile.   Victor at this point, for comparison, was like 99th percentile.   He was a moose!   These two will definitely be smaller.   Hopefully they'll catch up to their big brother once they are out of me and not competing for resources!!!

Babies this week:
  • Baby's getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on his or her own.
  • Baby's skin is getting smooth and soft and the gums are rigid.
  • Baby's liver and kidneys are in working order.
  • Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go too.
  • Baby's still in the 17.2- to 18.7-inch and 4.2- to 5.8-pound range and continues to beef up. 

Baby girl and baby boy respectively:

What our babies look like this week!  Holy cow!!
