FET Update: 8dp5dt



Hello everyone.  I just wanted to provide a quick update of how things are going on 8dp5dt.  Today was interesting.  While attending an all day meeting, I went to the bathroom on break and noticed that I was spotting.  It looked as if I was about to start my cycle.  Of course, I panicked as it didn't look like typical implantation bleeding.  I contacted my fertility clinic and nurse, but had to return to my meeting and couldn't answer the follow-up calls.  When I went back in the bathroom 20 minutes later, nothing.

I am hopeful that it was implantation bleeding and that everything is now well and a sign that the baby (or babies) has settled nicely.  There are another 5 days before I know for sure.  I've been super tempted to test, but I certainly won't yet.

That being said....keep praying for a sister.

FET Update: CDs 1-5dp5dt

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is recovering from a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving. You can read about our Thanksgiving antics here. Today, I wanted to give a small update of how I’ve been feeling post FET transfer.



Thanksgiving Recap


Hello everyone! I am hoping you had an amazing Thanksgiving and that it was so very blessed in the Lord. This was the first year in about four that S. and I did not host Thanksgiving. Our sister in love did a fantastic job and we were so glad to be able to make a few dishes, come to her and my brother in love’s home, and just enjoy the day.

Happy Thanksgiving



Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Closed to Count our Blessings

Hi everyone!  I'm closing shop for a couple of days to enjoy our friends and family, and to thank God for all He has done and all that He is.  I'll make sure to check in after the holiday with FET updates and holiday recaps.


FET CD19: Transfer Day

What a day.  I am currently resting on the couch with two beautiful embryos resting well within me.  Today was our Frozen Embryo Transfer and it was a wonderful success.  This was our first frozen transfer, but it was vaguely reminiscent of our last IVF w/ICSI transfer.

FET: CD18 Transfer Eve


It's the night before my transfer and I'm sitting here with my husband watching him watch football.  My right butt check is still protesting the injection I gave myself earlier.  I am almost certain there would be a bruise if I actually looked carefully enough.

I'm tired.  I'm ready to close my eyes and have a good night sleep before tomorrow's transfer.  I've done this before.  I know how this is supposed to go.  But man...I wish I didn't feel so nervous.

Tomorrow, if God is willing, I will have little passenger(s) resting within my womb at the end of the night.  I hope and pray with all of me that this procedure works.

Keep me in your prayers all.

Weekend Recap: Four Faves

Hi Guys!  I hope all is well with you.  It's time for another Weekly Recap and I wanted to pick a few of my favorite moments with you.


FET Update: CD14-We have our date!


Well guys, things have taken off at a rather rapid pace. After a pretty quiet cycle, I went in on yesterday (CD13) for my lining check and to confirm that 1.) I was at a lining of at least 8mm and 2.) I was ready to progress to progesterone in oil. The blood work and lining came back fine and then I received a call from the nurse practitioner.



Weekend Recap: Adventures in Babysitting



Hello everyone!  After last weekend's amazing trip down college memory lane, I was pretty pleased to take it keep it local.  Friday night, S., Bug, my niece, and nephew joined the church's young adult and youth ministries in an all night Laser Tag event while I kept baby A. and Honeybee at home.  They had an amazing time and my niece and nephew came home with S. and Bug for the weekend.

Friday Frazzle: My Week In Review

Hello everyone! I hope it’s been a fantastic week for you! It’s been a mixed bag for me. Some days have been wonderful. Others, like after the news of another mass shooting, not so much. I’ve been enjoying the link up with Narci, Erika, and Andrea so I decided to continue it. Here is my week in review and a few favorites too!

Why I took my 12 y/o son to the polls



I called the sitter on the way to the house.  Bug had the day off from school.  The sitter was still with Honeybee and baby A.  He was enjoying the day doing what preteens do on a rainy and dreary day.  He was sleeping.  I told the sitter that I would be picking him up in about ten minutes and for him to be ready.

Weekend Recap: 2018 NC A&T Homecoming (Photo Heavy)-Part 2

Hi everyone.  Thanks for joining us for Part 2 of the Weekend Recap.  There was so much to share that we just weren't able to put it in one post.  We hope you enjoy this one as much as we enjoyed experiencing it.

Weekend Recap: 2018 NC A&T Homecoming (Photo Heavy)-Part I

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I definitely did as my husband, his coworker, his coworker’s wife (both of whom are without a doubt awesome), and I drove down to Greensboro, North Carolina to attend North Carolina A&T State University’s Homecoming. Known among Aggie alumni as #GHOE for Greatest Homecoming on Earth, we drove down on Friday and made our way back yesterday. Guys, it was a great trip.



Friday Favorites: Our Favorite Children/Youth Adoption Books

Hi everyone!  If this is planned properly, you are reading today's Friday Favorite as I am en route to the Tar Heel State to celebrate Homecoming!!!  AGGIE PRIDE!!! 


Homecoming three years ago with Honeybee!
Because this month is National Adoption Month and November 1st was National Author's Day, I thought it would be nice to share some of Honeybee and my favorite adoption or adoption related books, along with a few recommendations from friends with you during this week's Friday Favorites.  I'm linking with A Little Bit of Everything, Momfessionals, and Grace and Love and hope you have an amazing Friday.

Skate Night with the Family

Hi everyone!  Last night was a pretty cool night for us.  I promise I'd already decided we weren't doing anything.  We don't celebrate Halloween and I wasn't too keen on going out, but Honeybee asked if she could be a "pretty purple princess" and S. mentioned at least showing face at the church's skate event and I acquiesced.  I'm so glad I did.

A Month of Gratitude


Hello everyone!  Happy November 1st.  This month is truly special.  There are a lot of wonderful things we are hoping and expecting to happen.  It's National Adoption Month.  It's "I'm Grateful" month.  It's the month we walk toward expanding our family via FET.  Wow...We have a lot going on.  So let's talk about it!
