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!

Could these be symptoms??

The first day of my LMP was July 14 and ended July 18. Hubby and I did the BD July 22-July 30 everyday. I was suppose to have ovulated somewhere between the 26-30 but I think I did sooner. I had light pink discharge on the 26th.  Every day since I have been tired, dizzy, and nauseated. I took a test and it was a BFN but I am assuming its too early to tell. Could these be symptoms? 

Wait almost over!!!

Supposed to start my period on the 5th, so 3 more days. Been having uncomfortable bloated tightness in my lower abdomen past few days. My husband told me that starting 8dpo sex started to feel different. Not bad, he just said everything down there seems softer and squishy...never had that before which makes me think maybe I'm pregnant. POAS on 7dpo and 10dpo And still BFN...is it just too early? 

Overreacting? or something to it??

Hey ladies :-) So, ahead of time Im sorry for the TMI...but this is really the only place it seems to be okay to be this graphic :-) Had my monthlie early July (started the 10th) it was an odly light period, short, (light for me anyway) and it finally stopped onthe 3rd day.  The next few days we BD'd, and the second day I saw light easter egg pink colored CM...NEVER had that before.  Have had af style cramps the WHOLE MONTH off and on...felt O pain around the 24.  My temps post O went from 97.13 fo4 days straight and then jumped to 97.45, then this morning I was at 97.31....I know that I am a symptom stalker sometimes, but I have felt kinda funny lately...another note, my bbs have been sore the whole month as well.  the right one gets worse, especially in the AM and when I take the boulder-holder off.  Does anyone else have experiences like this when they are pregnant? I keep telling myself Im overreacting but something just seems different...

Waiting to see if husband and i concieved

confused, and possibly pregnant?

Me and my husband have been trying to conceive for the past couple of months now. 

We had sex July 23rd and 24th, and my period ended on July 22nd.

I have shown all the signs of early pregnancy (nausea, sore breasts, cramping,  fatigue,  etc.), but last night I noticed I had some blood when I wiped, I thought I had started my period (even though im not suppose to start until the 18th) but when I woke up this morning there was absolutely no blood! 

Is there a possibility im pregnant? 

Should I see a doctor?

CD 12 Neg opk but feel like O.

Pretty new to this site.. not new to ttc. We've been trying for number 2 for 7 months. Decided to use opk's this month - 1st time not using digital. Testing twice a day... CD 12 still negative this am. Will try after work as I know the afternoon reading is more accurate. Totally feel like I'm ovulating and afraid I'm missing the window. We're not going to BD till I get a positive reading as DH has low (normal to low - due to motility) count. Just don't want to miss this window... Anyone else felt like this while waiting for a positive opk?

what a tease! 3dpo pregnancy dream

Writing this on my phone from bed in the middle of the night, super groggy so my apologies for errors or making little sense. My DD has been up to nurse every hour or two, so I awoke from a pregnancy dream with sore nipples. Not a surprise or symptom really because she just got in 3 top teeth all at once and they have been scraping my poor ladies.

 

Anywho, in my dream i was back in college. That was odd enough, but then there was some weird guy knocking at my car window trying to get in (he didn't).. then I saw a pack of condoms in my car and I pushed my finger through all of them, like tearing them. Again super odd and random. Then I guess some old high school friends were at the college and I was walking aroutummy w, and I felt a baby move. The feeling was so distinct in my dream! I could literally feel a thin baby leg and foot through my stomach.

 

I asked some girl from high school if she could feel it, and she put her hand on my stomach and said "well yeah, you're pregnant right?" I said "I could be but not that pregnant!" And she said "well did you think you were pregnant before?" In some snotty way. 

I woke up feeling my tummy for a foot :( no foot, and as we didn't pull the goalie until this cycle, there's no way to be more pregnant than I think lol 

Besides, they say dreaming you're pregnant means someone else around you is pregnant & if someone else dreams youre pregnant is when it counts for you..

 

Well back to bed, and luckily I should have a busy weekend to keep from obsessing. But the obsession now finds me in my dreams lol oh dear.

First time TTC- all ready going crazy!

My husband and I started TTC this month. I just stared the TWW and it all ready sucks! Right now we just decided to go with the fertility calendar, I didn't take my temp or use an ovulation kit or anything. According to the calendar, I should have ovulated anywhere from Monday-Wednesday (today is Thursday). My husband and I DTD on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday (every other day during my fertile days). All ready I feel like I have symptoms but everything I've read says its impossible. I'm bloated, I have cramping, my lower back hurts, I have a little bit of a sore throat, I woke up a little stuffy today, I'm peeing constantly (and I'm not one who pees a lot), I'm moody, I'm EXHAUSTED yet I can't sleep very well. Every night I stay up till 2am looking on the internet about everything to do with fertility, ovulation, symptoms. I'm totally obsessed. LOL. It's all ready taking over my life and this is only the first month of trying. I don't know if I could take months and months or years of this. Who knew that waiting just a few weeks would drive me so crazy?! It's all I think about! So today, at the very most, I would be 3 dpo so theres no way there would be any symptoms at all. I think I'm just so hopeful and excited that I'm reading way too much into anything my body does. I'm not supposed to get my period until 8/12. I don't know how I'll be able to last that long. I'm so happy I found this website so I can vent to people who are going through the exact same thing. Good luck to all! Trying to relax and take deep breaths and take my mind off it, but it's soooo hard! 

2DPO - I think

UGH. First cycle ttc#2. I'm super frustrated already! We didn't really try for numero uno, so this is all kinda new to me. I've been charting for a few months, and as I am breastfeeding, it's harder for me to pinpoint O. Doesn't help that this last cycle was all out of whack and I started on what would have been CD22 instead of CD26 or 27.

I was sure I had O'd relatively close to what I'll call "on time" this month then 2 days later I got EWCM & mittelschmerz. We had BD CD9-12. I think I O'd CD14. But our BD on CD 12 was like 12am so pretty much CD11 :/ So, we didn't even BD at the right time! And won't be able to BD until this weekend, which will be too late. Super sad.

I feel like I'm out before we even started!

 

TMI Alert:

Yesterday I had unidentifiable CM. It was a little stretchy, very thick, and WHITE. Like, super white. Not see-through at all. Not slippery, even kinda tacky/sticky. Almost like a boiled egg that wasn't fully cooked, slimy and shiny but not thin enough or stretchy enough to be CM. Globby, almost. Hoping it wasn't some super weird fertile CM meaning I O'd even later than I thought. And now I am having a super "wet" feeling down there and I'm hoping that's not a bad sign that I'm ovulating WAYYY later than "normal".

I'm feeling not so hopeful and morose today :( This morning I even had a touch of nausea, which I usually get around O time. I'm only 2 days in, if that, and I'm already swinging between hopelessly hopeful and obsessive, and depressed and defeated.

 

Still 13 days left in this wait.. At least next month will be a better one. Anyone else less than thrilled or excited with this months 2WW?

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!
