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!

Need clomid for cycle 2

 Hello, 

mom brand new to this blogging thing but figured I’d give it a shot. I’m 35 and DH 34, unexplained fertility issue but I have one son from a previous relationship. We had blood work and other labs done per RE and everything checked out ok. She prescribed Clomid 50mg, Trigger And Progestrome Supp Plus our but was unsuccessful and I was heart broken. 

We’d like to try again but it’s expensive... we d have to save for another month or two considering we pay out of pocket for all meds/procedures.  if you have left overs could you please hit me up gkfkfam at gmail I’d greatly appreciate it. Only real positive responses please.  God Bless... all the best ladies. 

Ache

Not sure what this is but got terrible lower back pain, like a constant ache. It eases if I’m sitting but when I’m up and about it’s a constant. I wouldn’t know if this a usual part of my cycle as I’m usually on a cocktail of pain meds for my disability so who knows.

off out for a cream tea to celebrate our anniversary and to keep my mind off of things.

TWW

so I’m halfway through my two week wait. I’m being caustiously optimistic I can’t get my hopes up too much. We bought pregnancy tests today in preparation. 

Any support and advice great received.

Bfp at 11dpo

Bfp clear as day.

Lesson of today: use a brand test.

Probably would have gotten it yesterday, if I hadn't used cheapy tests.

Still spotting, but cautiously optimistic now. Af due in two days.

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. 

Thoughts? 

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.

Opk

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.
