18 weeks

I can’t believe I am 18 weeks pregnant with our little science miracle! A lot has happened since my last post. I’m not sure why I haven’t been updating, except that I know I’ve been super busy and therefore super tired. I mentioned awhile ago that I wanted to start documenting the pregnancy more, but […]

16 weeks

Well, after my last post I guess it seems like I kind of fell off the face of the earth. I was feeling quite sick most of the day and night and just didn’t have the energy to post anything. I still have never puked, so for that I am grateful, but many days I felt […]

My upcoming posts

First of all I want to preface this post by saying that it is really hard to continue this blog while pregnant. I want to thank everyone for all of their support, encouragement, and loving prayers throughout everything we have been through. I also want to say that I will not be offended in any […]

Eeeeek! Brain on overdrive

I am 10w5d today. I had my weekly ultrasound on Friday at 10w2d and was measuring 10w3d. The baby had its hands over its eyes when it popped up on the screen – it was adorable. Dr. C said it was sleeping and we tried to wake it up, which we did, but it didn’t […]

Thank you all soooo much!

I need to thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your reassuring, supportive, and compassionate responses to my freak out last night. I don’t know what I’d do without all of you!!!! I was able to get in to see my RE first thing this morning and everything is fine. We have […]

Freaking Out. PTSD or not?!

I am totally bugging out. I have been so nauseous the past bunch of days and have barely been able to eat anything other than pasta and butter, bread and butter, crackers and cheese, and cereal. Today I woke up feeling pretty much fine. I feel like my boobs aren’t as sore too. I am […]


*This post mentions aspects of pregnancy and miscarriage. Please feel free to skip it if you want.   Just a quick update. Last time on this day we found out that something was wrong with our little one’s yolk sac. There was some debris, and it was just a tad bit large. I believe we […]

Beta Hell & Thankfully Living Through Our Own Personal Celestine Prophecy

Well, it’s been quite an interesting weekend. Friday afternoon and evening was a shit show around here. Yelling at and questioning the universe. You know the drill, the “Why the fuck is this so unfair?”, “Why us?”, “What the hell did we do wrong? I don’t even believe in karma anymore! We’re good people! What […]


Well it seems as though I am pretty predictable. I did a great job this week with bedrest and keeping myself feeling positive. I guess I did that last cycle too. I checked out my blog posts from my fresh IVF cycle and it seems that I felt the same way then as I do […]


It’s done! I’m officially PUPO! Had acupuncture before the transfer and also afterwards while I was laying there. I did that last time too and it worked so I obviously didn’t want to change a thing. The embryos thawed just fine – thank God! And the transfer went perfectly smoothly. I wore my new Wonder […]
