Trying-to-Conceive Blog

If you’re anything like me, you’re reading everything you can get your hands on when it comes to trying to get pregnant. Thank goodness for the Internet – I don’t know how anyone got pregnant before the advent of personal computing….

We have a place here on TWW for ladies to tell their BFP stories, as well as a spot for submitting their symptoms to determine if they might be pregnant. We have a wonderful TTC community where you can get valuable support and ask questions. But until now, we didn’t have a spot for the detailed monologue of your trying to conceive experience.

Introducing the Two Week Wait Trying-to-Conceive Blog. This is where you can create your very own blog of your TTC experience—every detail, blow by blow. Note that you’ll need to create an account with us first in order to create your blog. It’s free, of course. That’s how we roll here at TWW.  *there is a 24 hour waiting period on new accounts before you'll be able to start posting to your new blog.  In the meantime, have a look around and get to know the site!

Happy blogging!

Miscarriage-->> +Test

It's been 4 weeks and 2 days since the bleeding for my miscarriage began. Baby stopped growing at 2/4weeks or so, from September. Miscarriage began on Dec 19. Lost all tissue & huge probably 3 lb of bloody glob tissue on top of all the smaller clots. Was horrible & painful. 

Now I don't know if this is a new positive or old because hcg hasn't gotten out. Seems crazy if it's taking this long for hcg to return to normal. 


Just curious. I'll test again and see my Dr soon I guess for both issues. Bleeding & if I get another positive any darker. 


The testing begins

I had a crazy moment last night and tested.

5dpo: bfn

6dpo: bfn

I'll keep testing daily. I really feel as if af is about to arrive, although I should have a luteal phase of 13/14 days. We'll see, I guess.

10dpo symptoms.. Too early ?? bfn ??

so today I took a FR 6 days sooner test in the afternoon and got a bfn. I’m 10dpo and I know it’s early to rest but I had too Lol. I have had some weird feelings Just below my belly button. It feels like pinching and then sometimes like a pulling feeling. I’ve also noticed that I have a sharp pain in my left side and I have been extremely irritated and emotional. The one thing that had me testing is the fact that my boobs and nipples have been very Sore to the touch. they have been this way since 2dpo. Usually my boobs get big and a little sore before AF. But never this early and this constant. And my nipples never feel this sore and erect. Has anyone else gotten a bfn with all these symptoms at 10dpo??? Is there any point in retesting? 

Sept-Dec preg/Miscarriage

Supposedly pregnancy began in September when last period from 23-26. No heart beat etc miscarriage finally began December 19.... Went thru whole process pain of labour all that... Then figured I was having "Period"... Didn't bleed for a few days maybe, and have bled a little bit of light pinkish orange creamish coloured every day/night a little bit since..

Wondering what is up.

Could be blood from sex, when vessels are damaaged or pressured or whatever I read. Can't be simple implantation because it hasn't stopped happening.

Even had one time of my typical "old"blood looking bleeding that's real dark dirty looking but light and only once or twice... But everyday at least I bleed some light pinksih orange colour blood a little bit. 

The tww begins

The courier just picked up the cryogenic container and I am 1dpo. The waiting game has begun. Today I am constipated for the first time since I was pregnant with my toddler. Luckily I am quite sane and know it is not a symptom. :) I do wonder if I will spot around 4dpo. It happened several cycles before. If it does I already know it is probably not implantation. With my first I didn't have ib either. I've had such awful pms recently, I don't expect I will notice any symptoms. 

It's crazy early, but I think I'll take my first test at 7dpo. Last time I got a good positive on ic and clearblue digital at 9dpo (afternoon), so I'm curious. Then 1 test in the afternoon per day until 12dpo if bfn until then. At that point I'll consider myself out and wait for af. If I get a faint line on ic, I have some nice brand tests to follow up with. 

That's the game plan. Now onwards to my chore list to keep myself occupied.


My opk this morning was positive. Maybe I inseminated too early. Frozen sperm only lasts 24h. I used it all up, so no possibility of a second attempt. On the plus side, I have been having ovulation cramps this morning, so hopefully the egg will appear soon. I'll do another opk at lunch time and hope it is negative. This timing thing is a big pain.

Insemination day

Surprisingly I got a positive opk this evening. That means ovulation should happen tomorrow at 12dpo, a whole day earlier than the last cycle. I wasn't expecting it. I did the insemination this evening. Waiting 24+ hours seemed risky. Now I pray that it wasn't too early. I'll try to get some sleep and write down the details tomorrow. Please send me baby dust.


I had sex continuously for some days in my fertile window and on my ovulation day. I was even taking pregnare conception tablets but due to personal reasons I took plan b on my ovulation day. It's been three days now and I have been experiencing headaches and menstrual cramps. My next period should be in about two weeks time. Not sure if I still got pregnant 

Sperm delivered

The courier showed up just as I had finished dressing my toddler. He was a bit mad the parcel was not for him, poor thing. I've had to hide it in the spare room, so he won't open it and defrost his potential sibling. :) I'm a bit annoyed they did not put the container in a box for privacy concerns. Everybody in the street can see it. Oh well.

I'm excited. I still have to wait until Monday or Tuesday for a positive opk. I'll test once tomorrow and then three times a day from then onwards until I get a positive. Frozen sperm only lasts one day so timing is crucial. Insemination the evening of first positive. I hope it works and I don't make a mess of it. And that I don't ovulate late, since the container will only keep the sperm frozen until Wednesday. Details. :D
