The Journey to a Little One to Call Our Own

One gal's experiences dealing with IF, pregnancy, the birth of our first son, parenthood, and doing it all over again with our second son... here is our journey.

Thanks so much, ladies, for the super sweet comments and e-mails - I so appreciate it :)

Just so that I can keep everything documented for myself, here were my symptoms over the past couple weeks:

2 DPO: Learned from OB that I ovulated (confirmed through blood test)
3 DPO: Extremely hungry - just could not get full.  I ate all day long
4 DPO: Slight cramps
5 DPO: More cramps
6 DPO: More cramps, and my lower back and hips ached all day
7 DPO: Threw up at about 2 a.m.  This was extremely weird - I thought for sure I had food poisoning or something, because the rest of the night, I tossed and turned with major stomach cramps.  Cramps continued throughout the day.
8 DPO: Woke up, peed, and wiped... sorry if TMI... and there was dried blood.  I never had implantation bleeding with Max, but this immediately popped into my mind as an answer for why I had such bad cramping.  Took a HPT.  Negative.
9 DPO: Nothing.
10 DPO: Positive HPTs.

We are very excited, and very cautious - there's just such a long way to go until 12 weeks (let alone bringing home a healthy, live baby), and I am just praying that this little bean sticks.

I am going in for a beta on Tuesday - hoping that those #s are continuing to rise!!
