One Year Ago...

One year ago, I was going through HELL!  I was in the care of an RE, we were using injectables and I was going to the doctor for monitoring or bloodwork appointments regularly.  I was even blessed enough to see B when she was only one of my eggs they were monitoring.  It was a very difficult time.  But as I look back, I can't help but smile.  It was all completely worth it.  One year ago we were getting ready to stimulate ovulation via ovidrel.  I was fixated on the injection that my hubs was going to have to give me in the stomach that night.  Sometime 24-36 hours after the injection, our love created Brynleigh bug!  The above graphic is my actual chart from the cycle we were FINALLY blessed to conceive our little girl.  It wasn't until Saturday, August 21st that we finally found out we were pregnant, because the injectables I was on created false-positive tests.  It was the longest 19 days of my life!  It's hard enough to wait 9 DPO to test, but when you have to wait 15-20, torture!  It was  a difficult road, but we were successful, and for that I am so incredibly thankful.  We have come so far since last year at this time.  We were so low, so sad, so disappointed and so stressed all the time.  Now, we just enjoy being together and watching our kids grow and learn.  ::sigh::


  1. She started as such a pretty chart! Now a pretty baby!!

  2. It's crazy how fast a year has gone, isn't it?
