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!

I'm totally freaking out!

Today I am between 7 and 8 dpo..... around 5 dpo I noticed I spotted in the early moring! This really got my hopes up! I've had a couple other "symptoms" (sudden but mild waives of nausea, cramping, crying for stupid reasons, and mild lower back pains!) All of these symptoms have had me really excited the last few days, but today out of the blue while watching TV with my hubby, I noticed a twinge on my left side... it continued for a few minutes and got a bit stronger and more noticable. All of a sudden a rush of fear and worry flooded my body! I started to think, "omg what if I'm getting ready to have a period, or a miscarriage" This is our first month TTC so I'm really confused and lost =( I want this to happen with all of my heart, but idk what to think now!

just trying to pass the time

Hello all you have seen me on here a lot lately sorry I am going nuts with this tww. I was on bcp for 8 years finished my last cycle last month had af on the 26 and have had every symptom from my daughters perfume wanting to make me throw up hot dogs can't eat them I didn't mind them before didn't love them. my temp went back to normal for a few day still bloated gassy and evacuating the good old kidneys like every hour. temp just spike up to 99 I feel fine other than nausea if I don't eat. this is nuts. thought I saw a ghost line but not sure I am 5 days late for af. I have never ever had that unless I am pregnant ask my two kids. lol. trying to make light other people not being very encouraging actually only one person and it's not my hubbs. He's almost totally positive just for the fact of I cry at the drop of a hat. I am not an emotional person on or off bcp mood swings tend to swing towards making me irritated instead of crying before af. but too test today thought I saw ghost line but not positive. any time even using ept I have to wait almost two weeks after my af was supposed to come to get my anwser so I have more like 4ww. I think people that see it on a test are awesomely luck or see it before their missed af. so I will try not to drive everyone insaine. I was fully prepared not to be with child for a few more months because of the length I was on bcp. I got pregnant with my daughter in two months after being on bcp for almost two years so I figured it would probably take even longer. and I am on a low dose hormone so I don't get any symptoms from stopping them. the rx has messed up my cycle 3 times in 5 months so we took it as we should go for broke then get fixed. lol

Is this a BFP? 10dpo

Alright ladies, I need confirmation. What does this look like to you? Is it still too early to tell? 

What is happening with my chart this cycle?!

This is only my second month temping but last month I had a clear biphasic pattern. This month has been very strange since the start. I thought I ovulated on CD13 but then on CD16 I had the most EWCM yet this month and a small amount of pink spotting. Then my temp dropped dramatically the next morning and stayed pretty low again the next. MY cm has dried up, CP lowered a bit and my boobs are sore and bigger like they always are after ovulation. Pic of my chart:


I appreciate any input!

Ovulation Positive?

Hi gals :)  I have been TTC for a few months now (this is cycle 4) and I finally decided to start testing for ovulation.  Because this is my first time tracking this I was wondering if you could tell me if this is a positive or not?

Also, if it's positive, when should I BD?  Somewhere I read that I should BD tonight, tomorrow and the next day. 

Any help would be great!  Thanks!

Little Bean, is that you? Updates Daily + photos progression

DF and I are trying now. And this will be my 2nd and his 2nd baby. Our DDs (from prev. relationships) are 8 and 5.

So AF is due in 3 Days. I've tested and BFN so far. But yesterday I had light brownish / yellowish / pinkish spotting!!! Lasted 3 hours and stopped. For good.  

I have read HUNDREDS of stories within the last 2 weeks.. I need a buddy to wait with and hopefully share BFP's with!!!!

So I've been having what I think is implantation spotting. But what had implantation bleeding/spotting been like for other people who have had it? I had a miscarriage in march but with that pregnancy I never had any spotting. I'm not due for my period for another week and im NEVER early! Thanks!

So you can have symptoms early

Well I used this site to try & find clarity in how I felt & Ithought  perhaps I can help others to. I did so much research over the past 8 days to try to explain what I was feeling. Basically all I seemed to find is a list of symptoms that are PMS similar but that supposedly don't occur tell like day 9 & how anything felt sooner was not pregnancy related. Well now I know I'm not crazy & maybe I'm the rarity but I started to feel symptoms by day 3.

to start I know when I ovulated cause I took an opk. over the next 4 days my husband & I bd 5 times. Heres my results:

day 1 (after o): bloated 

day 2: bloated & gassy

day 3: cramping in stomach, constipated, bloated & tired

day 4: I'm now going to bed earlier then in a long time, cramping regularly, bloated, still constipated. Occasional sharp pain to a boob or other part of body, including my knee joint hurting quite a lot. Nauseous when I wake & off & on through out the day.

Day 5: everything from day 4 but now I'm getting forgetful over silly things.

Day 6 & 7: repeat of day 5 & at this point I've decided if I'm not pregnant I have to go to a doctor to find out what's wrong with me. I went with my husband for a late walk and a cat followed us all the way home even though my husband tried to scare him off.

Day 8: I know I shouldn't be able to test for at least one more day, it's Saturday & my periods not do tell at least Friday but I'm thinking I'm losing my mind. I test with erpt & get a super faint line but its there. 7 hours later I test again & slightly darker line. I'm not insane, I'm pregnant!!

I already have a 2 year old & with her no symptoms. My dh & I have been trying for a few months & I never experienced this so I didn't create this in my head, I had several pregnancy symptoms days after ovulating & they were nothing like PMS, when I get PMS I only cramp a day or two before period, this was sooner & more painful. I normally poop more this was less. My boobs normally get bigger, they barely changed at all. My appetite usually increases this was down from feeling sick to stomach. So I guess you can get a lot of symptoms right away so don't let anyone tell you your crazy.

I am waitning

I am waiting for my bfp. I have all they sypmtoms and i do not get all of them for my AF. I get crampy and moody occasionally. I don't get nauseus,or get week long headaches,or get sensitive to smells,or have to pee a lot and big note I don't miss my periods.

This began when my hubbs and I decided to TTC I had been on the pill for 7.5 years I figured it would take months. I know on or off the pill I run like clock work with maybe a day or two discrepancy not a week or more. I know that when I stop taking bcp I get AF with in 3 days. I thought it was coming due to the back ache that's how mine usually start. I usually have very little or no tenderness in the chest area and I don't get pains in v area. my last cycle started on the 26th and going off a regular 28 day cycle wich I do no matter what I am about a week late no AF cm was thick and now it's thing and I am facilitating the bathroom quite often to relieve my bladder I find myself with a super wet mouth and i can't eat certain food that never bothered me or that i really like with out feeling like I am going to throw up. Nausea in waves usually if I wake up really hungery and we are talking someone that doesn't do breakfast before coffee or 9am. I usually drink 3 cups of coffee and cant drink more than 1.5 without feeling sick that's after eating even. I am a posa  so of course I have already taken 4HPT so I have the dates of conception down to 7/3-7/8 and I have already hit temp spikes and dips and I always feel hot.

I have never had it happen the first try. I have two this will be my third but my first with my hubby. My ex and I had to try for 4 months before there was success. does he have wonder sperm or was it just a fluke.

confused! help please!
