My husband, David, and I had been trying to have a baby since November of 2007. After 'letting things happen', we got the amazing news that we were pregnant in June of 2008. Sadly, that pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with a natural miscarriage. After two more chemical pregnancies, we turned to fertility treatments in 2009. That decision was a disaster, with lousy medical care and poor monitoring. In December of 2009, we made the huge decision to move onto IVF. Things fell into place like magic and we began treatment on January 15, 2010. After a blighted ovum in March, we did a successful FET in June, only to endure another blighted ovum in July. We kept up and underwent another IVF in September/October of 2010 with the arrival of our son, Brogan in July of 2011! After our lovely success (finally) we decided to undertake yet another IVF treatment and hope for a sibling for our little red headed boy. Well... so far it's worked. Our story continues below!

Nothing Much To Report...

Took another hpt.  It's beyond concern now and has turned to just pure contentment to see the still darkening line.  I got a call from my clinic today and I am booked for an ultrasound on March 18th - at my eight week mark.  I had hoped for sooner, but that's when it is, so that's when I take it.  I would really like to have a couple more betas done and am considering asking my clinic to order at least two more just for my peace of mind.   I'm not sure yet.

Signs:  Some real sore boobs - coming and going with that, and my lower back is really sore.  That's a result of the ligaments loosening in order to accomidate soon to be expanding uterus.  Amazing how the body starts to prepare itself for pregnancy.  I might have been a tad bitchy this morning but took it out on some seriously overdue accounts at the store and spared the girls who work for me!


  1. Congrats Sonya I knew you would get there!! Relax now and enjoy this before you get too uncomfortable. YAY I'm so happy for you!!

  2. Brianna!!!! I seriously thought about calling you and telling you... lol I got all emotional about it though. How's your new baby daughter? I can't get to your email/blog page.... :(

  3. How dark will it one knows! That feeling could not be any better I am sure!

    Thanks for the advice. It assured me that I will be okay and the doctor will make the best decision for us!

  4. That's such a wonderful thing! I'm so very excited for you and David. If I were you, the biggest thing on my mind would be.... Is it one or is it two? :) joy.... Joy.... So excited to share this experience with you! (((hugs)))

  5. Wow putting all those HPT sticks in a line really puts it in perspective. That last one is blazing dark!

  6. Looking good! :) I totally get you about asking for another beta. I was going to do the same, but I'm just going to hold off next week until my appointment. GL!
