We are in the final 2-weeks of our 9-month pregnancy which we started in June 2015 with our #7 embryo transfer and our #4 round of IVF. March is finally here! I’m 37-weeks along now (considered full-term) and in just over 2-weeks, my husband and I will be (hopefully) looking at a happy, healthy, beautiful … More She said… March is here!

I know the title seems a bit strange, but I have to share a tip that helped me sleep last night for the first time in a month.

As we continue to write about our experiences, I am cognizant of the fact that we are posting more and more about being pregnant, and not as much about the struggle with infertility and IVF. It is a natural progression, of course, and one that everyone who reads this hopes to follow as well. But … More He Said – No Promises
I’m no stranger to surgery. In fact, I’m sure in my life time I have had more surgeries than most. This does not stop me from being nervous and doesn’t stop me from hoping that I don’t need one. My plan was to experience a natural birth but that might not be in my future … More She said… Surgery In, Surgery Out
We are roughly two months away from the birth of our daughter, and every day we are still in awe of the fact that we are here.

We are officially through the second trimester (week 14 – week 27) and it went by very fast! I just got back from my 28-week check-up and can’t believe we are entering our 3rd Trimester. Baby is doing well! Baby’s lungs are now fully developed and if we were to go into labor early there … More She Said… Goodbye 2nd Trimester, Hello 3rd Trimester
We are now in our 24th-week of pregnancy with 6 months in and 3 to go. Most people would have done their baby registry shopping by now, but we are not most people. We had to work ourselves up to visit the local baby store to look at nursery items – crib, nursing chair, changing … More She said…Baby of Mine
On Nov 9, at our 20-week sonogram we found out if we were having a baby Boy or Girl. We have waited since Sept 21 to find out. Why wait 2 months after the test results to find out? Well, it wasn’t because we didn’t want to know, but because we were scared to find … More She said… Boy or Girl?
We are now 18-weeks pregnant and approaching the half-way mark. Everything is going well so far, relatively speaking of course. I am the typical pregnant woman now. I have had heartburn almost daily, cried when I had to buy maternity pants and maternity bra, have had a cold since week 6 and still fighting it. … More She said… Time to Announce
