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!

CD 2 for me...

Well I am over the initial sadness, self-loathing and crying portion after finding out that I'm not pregnant yesterday... Thank God (my poor DF lol)

So... I am hoping that this is going to be our month this time around.. Any tips/tricks you ladies have for me, I would love to hear them! 


TTC month 2

8/1/13--Well I'm not sure if I'm 7 or 8 dpo. Positive opk on cd13 but my bbt chart says I ovulated on cd13. Kinda weird but had progesterone drawn yesterday and it was only 7.9. Last month it was 4. Dr said it is way too low. also took a HPT and got BFN. However, gums bled a little this morning, low back pain, thick yellowy CM, and nipples seem slightly tender. This past weekend I was exhausted and slept a lot. According to my charts AF should be here 8/7 so I guess I'll wait. Very sad to find out about my progesterone and Get bad news from my doctor.

08/02/13--ok so according to Fertility friend I am 10 DPO but according to two other apps I'm only 9 DPO. so give or take lol. Anyway another BFN today. MY BBTs are 7/28-98.01, 7/29-98.02, 7/30-97.86, 7/31-97.51, 8/1-97.45, and 8/2--97.69 my coverline is 97.2 (see attched) would the change in these temps constitute a "dip" or is this just a normal shift during the cycle? I've also got some white kinda cloudy cm today. doesn't stretch and isn't really sticky. kinda hard to explain. Hope that's not TMI. I know I am kinda getting my hopes up considering my progesterone was only 7.9 but I can't help it with all these weird things going on. Dr told me to continue with metformin and pregnitude so I am.(BTW my bbt chart looks funny in the beginning cause i didn't take temps at the same time until 7/22) Anyone else have low progesterone but still get pregnant??

08/03/13--10-11 DPO HPT is still negative. But have clear stuff coming out of my right breast (only when I squeeze it but still there sorry if TMI), back aches and continue to have lotiony mucus. Temps are still above coverline. have some pressure/cramps every now and then and some tingles in my boobs. cloudy brown discharge when I wipe.My period is due on wednesday so guess I'll keep waiting and testing. Not sure its worth it though  :(

08/04/13-11-13 DPO, HPT NEGATIVE. been having these tingling almost stinging like feelings going through my boobs today and yesterday. very BLAH today. ate fried seafood today and needless to say it did not set well with my stomach. very tired. had some very strong cramps while standing up today. i had to go lie down before it went away. then when i stood back up, walked aboout 15 feet it happened again, but i keep telling myself that was because of the fried seafood and i just needed to go potty. sorry if tmi but hey trying to keep track of all symptoms so i know what to expect in the future. the brownish discharge/cm is still there as well. i do recall though a month or two ago that a day before my cycle started if i "checked" my cm then it was more like AF blood than cm. if that even makes sense. temp was 97.46 today. still above coverline. guess ill know more in 3 days but not very promising!

08/05/2013--12-13 DPO--hpt negative this morning. still brown discharge but only when I "check." Temp was 97.71. my boobs don't hurt I just have a lot of tingly feelings in my nips and sometimes a little stinging in the sides. Still not getting my hopes up because i feel the tests should at least be faint by now and I think I  had this same discharge last month or maybe 2 months ago before AF showed her ugly face. Sorry for so much info but I want to keep track of everything this month so that I can read the signs better in the future.

08/07/2013--WELL AF was due to show her face this morning but hasn't come yet. Temp was 97.75 this morning and no more brownish cm. It's more creamy now. bbs are slightly sore but not much and slight cramps in lower pelvic area. still BFN on HPT though. :(

 08/09/13--HPT and Blood test are both negative. Still no AF and temps are still up. Beyond confused!


Well, this is cycle 4 ttc.  Finally started using OPK and got two very solid lines this past Monday.  Solid lines Tuesday morning but by Tuesday night it was a lighter line.  I suppose that means i'm about 3 dpo.

I've been pretty nauseous the past couple of days.  Wonder if that is a sign of ovulation?  I don't think I noticed ovulation signs before except EWCM...(got EWCM on Monday btw) There are bugs going around as well I've heard so i'm not sure.

We BD Monday and Tuesday and I guess it's just the waiting game now.  Plan to BD again tonight for good measure.

As you all know, this is pretty much all I can think about.

First month TTC

Hi all!

I'm new to this, so I'm sorry if I don't use the acronyms correctly. My husband and I have decided we are ready for a baby! Hopefully my body thinks the same! This was our first month TTC and am 8DPO (days post ovulation???). I am noticing different things going on with my body, and of course I have googled every one of them. Nausea, Bloating, Constipation, sharp breast pain, sharp cramps, extreme lower back pain, and this morning I woke up with a face rash. I am also on a 34 day cycle and not sure when I can take a test? Most women would find out this weekend, if on a 28 day cycle. I don't want to wait until next week, but I also don't want to see another negative (took two already way too early!). Last weekend I had extreme cramps which was 4DPO. I hate this wait! More like a three week wait for me! I would normally reach out to my friends who are parents for advice and thoughts but we don't want to tell anyone we are TTC, we want to surprise them all! Starting to receive a lot of pressure from the in-laws for grandkids! Hope we can surprise them soon!

Any advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated!  


I find it so hard to resist testing! I'm only 9dpo so when I keep getting all negatives, I tell myself that it's ok and that it could still happen! Omg.... This waiting sucks! 

what's the earliest you guys have gotten a bfp?

Is anyone else 9dpo too?

First time TTC

Hi ladies,

my df coin going to start TTC #1 this month!  So excited and a little anxious and stressed about how the process will go! I came off the pill in may and had my break through AF and then 28 days later had another AF and then my next cycle was 35 days, I am hoping that is related to stress or coming off the pill and that this month my cycle will be back to 28 days!  If I am back to a 28 day cycle I should O on Wednesday, so df and I are going to bd as much as possible this week and Monday and Tuesday morning but he will be out of town for work on my actual O Day!  I am hoping the days leading up to it will be good enough, do you think?

i am so excited and already dreading the tww!  Is there anyone out there that is in the same boat as me and will start there tww next week?  I would love to have someone to wait with!!!

sending everyone loads of baby dust!!!!

Different symptoms & different pregnancies

Hey all I am new here but have a quick question!!


My hubby & I have been ttc since march with the cbfm and I got pregnancy first time. Unfortunately it ended in a chemical miscarriage at around 5 weeks. I knew I was pregnant before I tested because I had terrible wind (constant bubbling inside) my boobs became sore after about a week. I had sharp shooting pains in them and it almost felt like a burning sensation, I even had to sleep in a sports bra. I also had constant cramps.


Alas it was not meant to be :(


However we have been trying since and still no luck.


I am now 3 dpo and obviously I am hoping I am pregnant but I don't have any of the feelings that's I had last time when I had the chemical mc.


My question is can you have different symptoms with different pregnancies during the tww?


Thanks all x

Post AF with strong symptoms

Hi. I am incredibly confused. I really want kids but have been told it may not be possible. Me and my partener are not trying as such but I had the mirena coil removed on 19th May and have had unprotected sex since. I had some immediate spotting but on 26th June I had a heavy period for 3 days. On 23rd July (a week and 1 day ago) I had a heavy period for 2 days. It stopped for 2 days and then whilst having intercourse my cervix/uterus REALLY hurt and I then had brownish spotting for a further 2 days. For the last couple of days my sense of smell has gone through the roof. Cigarette smoke makes me gag, the smell of alcohol and coffee are also making me nauseas, I can even smell the milk in the fridge when it is clearly fine. I constantly feel like I'm on water and want to vomit. I'm boiling hot and not sleeping at all. Im incredibly clingy to my partner at the moment too. But my breasts are less sore then they have been since I've had the coil removed and it all seems far too soon after my period for it to be pregnancy related. Am I just shattered and coming down with something? All I want to do is sleep and vomit!

Raspberry Leaf Tea and Pineapple Core...

I have started drinking Raspberry Leaf Tea and after I ovulate, I'll eat the pineapple core. Has this worked for any of you or do you know someone that it has worked for? I'm really hoping that it helps me this time! I almost wanted to give up because the past 6 months have been exhausting but I truly feel that God has given me the strong desire to be a mother for a reason. God bless you ladies in your own journeys and pray for me! 

1 Samuel 1:27

I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.

New to Site

My husband and I have been TTC for over two years. It's frustrating considering how bad I want to become a mother! I started a round of Clomid 50 mg this cycle and this 2ww is torture! Our anniversary is Sunday and I would love to be able to tell him he's going to be a daddy! Looking forward to meeting people who are in my shoes! Is there anyone who can give me suggestions on how to take my mind off of it. I dont want to obsess over it!
