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!

TWW is driving me insane!!

Feel like I'm slowly going insane!! Now CD25, for the last week experiencing pelvic cramps, gas/bubbling feeling and so tired! Never get cramps until day before AF usually. caved and did hpg 2 days ago but bfn. Anyone else had similar symptoms ??? 

Poas addiction still ttc 5 long years

Indents really mess with your emotions.

Todays indent is so clear I thought it was a bfp in real life without picture editing and staring until I see lines.


2 other tests with same urine both show clear negative.


anyone else?

Hi there, I have been TTC for two years now, have had one early misscarage.

I have very irregular cycles which I take homones monthly to create a period to move on to the next month of trying. I have a very hard time finding my ovulation via pee sticks (not to mention tons of money) and CM. When I do find ovulation its around CD 23.

My SO and I have recently took a 6 month break from "trying" but have continued to have unprotected sex. Everyone always tells me your trying to hard, your thinking to much about it, your stressing, blah blah the list goes on. Well during that 6 month break we did get pregnant but the way I found out was due to having the was early but still fustrating and sad.

Now this month my SO and I have decided to start trying again. I didnt want to buy the ovulation test yet so we are just BD every three days.

Yesterday (after a non pentration orgasam, dont know if this is related) I had some pink/white discharge when I wiped. I am on CD19. What im wanting to know is if anyone else has had somehting like this happen or people opintions. I googled it and it led me to think that this may have been ovulation bleeding or after ovulation bleeding.

Any thoughts???


Am i or am i not ??

I suffer with pcos so dnt have periods for some reason something was telling me to test i decided to do a cheap brand test this morn and it came up with a very faint second line so i rushed out n got a digital that came up negative. What are peoples opinions is it a positive but to early for digital or just both negatives?

13 DPO - chart included

I am now 13 DPO and believe AF is due tomorrow, UNLESS I'm going to get my BFP! 


I O'd on CD 18 and we BD ON CD 16,18 and 19 (as well as before and after that but those were the critical days lol)


My temp dipped on 8DPO and then went back up and was its highest yet on 10DPO (98.54). It has gone down in the past two days but not anywhere near what it does when I'm going to get AF. 


Not having many symptoms other than fatigue, lack of motivation and full boobs. 


Here's my chart, what do you think?

First time TTC - Known donor insemination.

New here - wanted to blog to keep track of everything to date!!

My wife and I first started to plan our TTC journey back in April 2017. We decided to go with a known donor (Family member of my DW). We know his swimmers work as he has 10 kids! lol I have no reason to believe I cannot have children as I have never tried. I came off BC (On it for acne reasons) the end of April. We travel 8 hours to meet our donor. So I tried to line the trips up with my O date based on my CD1 etc. I'm basically blogging this for tracking purposes for myself. But it may help someone else TTC with a donor as well. :)


Cycle 1 - Our first insemination was June 15th. Stayed with a family member this trip, so we inseminated in the back of the car. Inseminated, left syringe in as a cork, had an orgasm, and left my legs up for while. No symptoms or anything after insemination. AF arrived June 26th.


Cycle 2 - Inseminated on July 8th - had a blazing positive OPK this day. Stayed at a hotel this time, same process as before. Started feeling extremely tired and very sore nipples shortly after this. I was VERY emotional/moody. I POAS like an addict this time. Every 2nd day I POAS. It was torture!! I got extremely nauseous and gassy as well. I just felt different. July 20th I had a vvl pink blood with a clump of mucus - thought maybe implantation bleeding. Next day AF arrived, earlier than expected. Lasted only 2 days and it was heavy - out of the ordinary for me. Tested multiple times after this and all BFNs.

Cycle 3 - Inseminated August 4th and 5th. Ovulated earlier than expected I think but no strong postive OPKs so I'm not sure. Stayed in a hotel and modified our process. We tried using pre-seed and soft cups this time. Our August 4th insemination, I was SO disappointed as the 'donation' was next to nothing. We inseminated anyhow. Found our later our donor BDed with his wife that morning, hence the lack of donation for me! August 5th donation was much more. Inserted the soft cup for the night and went to bed. I'm writing this on CD19 (August 8th, 3 and 4 days after insemination) For the past 2 days I've been EXTREMELY tired and have zero energy - same feelings in cycle 2. 

This has been an extremely stressful/emotional process for us. I'm a POAS addict and have been fighting the urge this cycle. I'm awaiting on a reading from Cheri within the next couple of days. My birthday is tomorrow, I'll be 31 - I feel like my time is running out. I try to stay positive, but it's hard. I just started temping, so I will closely track that for awhile. Hoping for the best this cycle, but my head is telling me otherwise.

11DPO and think I might be preggo!

So i'm in my 3rd cycle TTC #2. DH and I have a 2.5 year old son and we are ready to bring on #2! :) When we started this, I promised I wouldn't go as crazy as last time, and I quickly realized that is not possible, obsessing and tracking is what I do best! haha.

I am 11 DPO today and I have taken 2 tests (8 DPO & 10 DPO) that were both negative, however, I still think I could be pregnant and am just testing too early. I PROMISED myself I wouldn't test again until Saturday, which will be 15 DPO, if AF hasn't arrived yet.

I have a 31-32 day cycle and I O'd on CD 18 according to temps and CM. We BD on CD 13, 14, 16, 18 and 19. 

Since then, I haven't felt any glaring or extremely obvious symptoms, however around CD 6-8 I did experience some light cramping on the left side that was very faint, but noticeable twinges. Also, by CD 8, DH noticed, as did I, that my bbs were looking full and bigger.

I did test with FMU on DPO 8, however, it was negative; I knew it was too early, but you know how that goes! I then tested, against my intentions, on the afternoon of 10DPO mid-afternoon after drinking two full iced coffees. The test was negative but I also know that my sample was likely very diluted.

I'm not feeling irritable like I normally would 2-3 days away from AF, and the slight crampy feeling in my abdomen has been a bit consistent, something I don't normally notice.

Also, on 7DPO my temp did dip from 98.3 to 97.9, raising back to 98.3 the following day. It has stayed consistently around 98.3, but then on the mornign of 11DPO, it raised a bit more to the highest it's been all cycle, 98.54.

In an effort to find some comfort, reassurance, or answers before I can get any actual answers (BFP or AF), I have been researching CP and what it could mean. I am 11 DPO and do not normally track my CP, however, based on everything that I have read, right now it is high and soft. Is this normal for just prior to AF? It seems like it should drop own lower and harden with the arrival of AF. And without giving too much detail, I know it's high because it takes the length of my entire middle finger to reach it.

I know that the only real answer is to wait a few more days to know for sure, but I really think I am, but I'm terrified to test again and want to wait until Saturday, but I just hate not knowing!

I know this was a long post but I appreciate if you read it and any feedback you have based on your experiences.

Thank you!!




Positive OPK??


I'm new here on tww, but I've been stalking this site for quite a while trying to symptom match. I had recently came off the depo shot, only got one shot on April 17, so it "wore off" July 17. Haven't had a regular period yet and me and the DH are trying to conceive. Had some wierd spotting this month and decided to buy FR OPK. I had a feeling I should take one because of the weird spotting I was having a low and behold on August 1st I got what seems to be a positive OPK, I tested again the next day and it was negative. It wasn't until the 3rd that I felt cramping that was reminiscent to ovulation cramps. On the 4th I tested again and once again was seemingly positive. Confused, I think if I O'd it would've been the 3rd, B'd the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th and am now experiencing little twinge cramps, fatigue and sore bbs. Could I have ovulated? If so what are the chances I caught the egg? Very hopeful and in need of some advice!! 

AF like cramps 11 DPO?

Hi all,

I am new to TTC and just trying to figure out my body! I have been tracking ovulation/LH surge for the past two months. I did get my LH surge on July 27th. We DTD the 24th, 27th and 29th.


Starting around 3-4 DPO, I just had extremely mild AF like cramps (semi off since AF isn't expected for two more weeks). figure I'm out of the running since implantation hasn't occured yet and it would be odd to have cramps if the egg and sperm were getting ready for implantation. However, I have read some success stories with women stating the same thing. 


Today i am 11 DPO and have af like cramps and have just felt nauseous all day. I don't have any other symptions. Preparing for AF to come knocking on Friday, but wondering if anyone else has a similar story to give me a glimmer of hope.

IUI #3

1dpiui - nothing much to report back. Ovulation pain in both ovaries

2dpiui - nauseas,  I slept later that usual (by like 2 hours), sharp, consistent, pinching pain right on the front of my uterus lasting for 30 minutes or so.
