Mother’s Day

I know, I know…. I haven’t posted in FOREVER! I just feel so strange posting here. I’m obviously still following all of you and keeping updated but I’m not doing my part, I guess. I’m so excited to see all of my “friends” posting about their new babies and Oregon Annie’s and new attempts. I […]

Vote for Zev from New Mexico!

After all the infertility costs, unexpected hospital bills from Zev’s birth, and his stay in the hospital this summer, we decided that it’s worth a shot to try for Gerber baby, right?! If you have a moment over the next few days and would be willing to help out- please vote for Zev from New […]


I don’t know where else to cry but here I am… My baby is almost a year old and I am so overwhelmed with emotion. I never thought I would have a child, much less have one that is biologically both mine and my husband’s. It took us 8 years, rounds of iuis and ivfs, […]

10 week baby update

I never thought I’d be that new mom who just stopped blogging after her baby was born. Really, I thought about it before, and I always told myself that I would make a point to keep up. Boy was I wrong! Jeez! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in over a month. Yes, there’s not […]

My birth story – 41 weeks 1 day

I woke up in the morning on October 1 at 41 weeks exactly with cramps and wondered if today was the big day of the start of labor. Hubby and I headed off bright and early for the first appointment of the day at the Perinatology office for our BPP (Biophysical profile) to be sure […]

40 weeks 4 days – Keytar’s “late” and now everyone is driving me insane! AND this is my 100th post – so that means it’s time to come out Keytar!

Everyone is driving me crazy! I know everyone is just excited and wants to know when Baby Keytar arrives – but I can’t stand all of the texts and questioning! He/She will arrive when good and ready and we will tell you! It’s hard enough not knowing when my body is going to go into […]

Thank you so much to hellomynameistubeless for the One Lovely Blog Award! I started this blog about a year and a half ago when I was getting ready to start my IVF cycles, after many, many years of TTC and 4 failed IUIs.

39 weeks 4 days

How Far Along: 39 weeks 4 days How Big is Baby: Baby Keytar is the size of a mini watermelon! I really don’t know exactly how big though – could be anywhere from 7-8 lbs I guess, but I don’t really feel like he/she is 8 lbs., but I’ve never done this before so I really have no […]

31 weeks

How Far Along: 31 weeks How Big is Baby: last week, at 30 weeks exactly, Baby Keytar was measuring 3 lbs. 2 oz. and measuring 15.9 inches at our ultrasound. He or she is in the 43rd percentile, which they say is perfect, especially because we do not want a large baby due to the gestational […]
